Abject/Abjection

Postby Slava » Mon Jun 14, 2021 6:34 am

I decided on this one because of what I consider an error in a piece on Slate.com. The author wrote of "object horrors", not abject, which is what I would expect in that phrase. I doubted myself, though, so I looked it up and found that it's even more complicated than I thought, so I figured I'd toss it your way and see what you make of it.

Any thoughts?
Life is like playing chess with chessmen who each have thoughts and feelings and motives of their own.

Maybe you could gain an abject lesson from this usage?
