And the fact that he tackled this subject matter, like he did with Inglorious Basterds and recreated his own history and something as hardcore as slavery and combined it with the genre of having it be this crazy spaghetti western feel to it with this lead character that obliterates the cankerous rotting south, is completely exciting. He wrote this incredible character and as soon as I read it, I was completely excited. This man, as Quentin put it, he represented everything that was wrong with the South at the time—like a young Louis XIV, sort of a prince that wanted to hold onto his position of privilege at all costs. Even though he was integrated his whole life with black people, brought up by a black man, lived with him his entire life, he had to find a moral justification to treat people this way. And like, the fact that he’s a francophile but he doesn’t speak French, he’s just a walking contradiction. He was brought up by black people and yet he had to regard them as not human. There was absolutely nothing about this man that I could identify with. I hated him and it was one of the most narcissistic, self-indulgent, racist, horrible characters I’ve ever read my entire life. But I had to do it! It was too good a character in that sense. This man writes just incredible characters.
