CLASSICAL ELEMENT SERIESFRANCIS ABERNATHY Some boys are liquid, or at least pretend to be so easily changed. Later, Francis dreamt of being washed away completely. Water symbolises adaptability and reason, as well as the tendency of these to lead to indifference and cynicism when unchecked.

The Secret History characters as literature genres

↳ The Macaulay twins as Southern Gothic

The only book they’ve ever read is their Nana’s Bible; they run barefoot through the fields and forests, and eat ripe berries so quickly their hands and faces are stained red. Their house may be old and half-collapsed but the fire in their hearts is young and strong.

The Secret History characters as literature genres

↳ Henry Winter as noir fiction

The only foreign tongue he speaks is the language of violence, and he only feels alive when he’s taking someone’s life. His fingers have perpetual gunpowder burns, but his mind is as sharp and dangerous as ever.

The Secret History characters as literature genres

↳ Bunny Corcoran as melodrama

He’s a simple soul, really, and easy to please, but when he gets an idea in his head it starts a life of its own and he can do nothing to stop it, can do nothing to stop himself. He feels everything deeper than he should and speaks up more often than is probably good for him, but what’s the worst that could happen, right?

The Secret History characters as literature genres

↳ Francis Abernathy as dark romanticism

He lives in the house in the mountains all by himself; it’s said that the few who dare trespass on the enormous grounds of the mansion are never seen again. There are some who say he’s some sort of a demonic beast, while others are sure he’s a fallen angel. Neither is correct.

Bunny gave him a long, hard look. “Jesus,” he said. “What you doing, burying the dead?
Henry smiled. “Actually, it’s very lucky you happened by.”

"…my life, for the most part, has been very stale and colorless. Dead, I mean. The world has always been an empty place to me. I was incapable of enjoying even the simplest things. I felt dead in everything I did.’ He brushed the dirt from his hands. ‘But then it changed,’ he said. ‘The night I killed that man."
