Curator: Three Sorrows

My bimonthly piece, this one entitled "Three Sorrows," is up on Curator. It is an examination of three works of art, all of which depict torture:
*1984, the justly famous novel by George Orwell (published in 1949)
* “Name,” a short story by Tony Woodlief, first published in issue 58 of Image journal (2008) and recently reprinted in Bearing the Mystery: Twenty Years of IMAGE (2009)
*Of Gods and Men, a Cannes-winning French film by Xavier Beauvois (2010).
