Some time ago, I was contacted by Jared Cox, who wished to use my Musings as a source for an english paper he was writing about V for Vendetta .
Flattered, I was more than happy to "let" him quote me, but agreed only on the condition that he send me the final product when he finished. I found it very intriguing to read his views of the novel and its themes in relation to the paper he wrote.
There must be another form of freedom, a creator that will rebuild a world where people can live their dreams.
"V" most certainly is good; he is trying to revive these dormant attitudes and feelings of society.
His disregard of his own life demonstrates that he is more than man; he is a symbol, a symbol of the on going struggle to obtain freedom.
He is the unrelenting pursuit of freedom and is constantly struggling for the world's cleansing of fascist governments. It causes the reader to read and reread a lot of his writing. Through "V's" constant destruction of justice buildings the author is trying to get across that freedom cannot exist in a world judged by injustice. Freedom creates justice; so without freedom, you have no true justice, only pretenders. Since he was gracious enough to share his views with me, I would like to share his views with you.I present to you Jared's paper in its entirety, without comment.His actions toward the characters are baffling and unbelievable.He saves Evey, a young prostitute, from being gang raped by a Vice Detail. But his relationship with Evey is the most confusing and bewildering of all.Freedom "prevails." "V" can be nothing other than freedom. He/it sacrifices himself for freedom to grow so that it/she can create a better world. We also had to destroy and kill to obtain our freedom. The question of whether or not he is freedom is apparent further on in the book.His actions of sabotage and murder have a reason, a connection, and a purpose. Society sees no hope or chance at freedom, and "V" gives them this hope, a feeling that it is possible, that freedom can be obtained. He is just one piece of the puzzle he is the destroyer.
