Two Books: The Tragic Downfall of a Civilization

1877, Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy published.

2011, Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L James (ghostwritten in the pornosec of the ministry of truth more likely)

That begs the question, where do we find the downfall? In the novel as an creative means of expression or in a culture’s moral standards?

Woe betide…both!
