message 1: by Jane (new)

Jane I'm not sure about "The Mists of Avalon" and "Lolita". Sure the incestual scene in the Mists is central but it isn't the main theme in my eyes. The main theme is a world going to be lost.
As for "Lolita" - there it is'nt really incest, because Lolita and HH aren't really blood relatives. For me, it is more about pedophily.


message 2: by Skyla (new)

Skyla Yeah I could see the Mists of Avalon not being a main theme but in a way it is because of Modred being Arthur's son and him killing Arthur.

Incest can refer to step-parents and step-siblings as well. Using that definition it works. It also works for cousins and uncles and adopted children as well. Anything where there is the parent-child or sibling bond is technically incest according to the laws definition.


message 3: by Skyla (new)

Skyla Not sure if cousins really count as incest seeing as you can marry your first cousin legally in a lot of places but I'll leave it on.
