Hello.

I just finished Cormac McCarthy's Blood Meridian. Pretty crazy stuff; the evocation of atmosphere was very impressive. I sometimes found McCarthy's weird prose rules hard to follow but when they work they have sort of an admirable economy.

What is everyone's interpretation of the ending? Thoughts on the whole?

Was it rape?

It may very well have been raped. Although I would be curious about what the judge does to the kid I just took away that the judge has thoroughly bested him. Like there is no doubt that the kid has any dignity value left after the judge is done.

What I am more curious about is the part with the hole drilling in the epilogue. When someone recommended the book to me someone said that it was McCarthy's last word against the judge but I didn't understand that interpretation.

The Judge drilled a hole in the kids skull with his dick.

*The Judge drilled a hole in The Kid's skull with his dick.

Sorry about that. My mistake.

seriously though, what's with the epilogue m8?

>epilogue

if you think Blood Meridian has an ending you really should read No Country for Old Men and watch The Counselor.
