Why did Edmund love Turkish delight so fricking much? Was it a metaphor for something else? Are they any good? Should I make a fuss to try some?

    1. Turkish delight, at least the variety I have had once, is good.

    2. Edmund was from early 50s England, rationing was still in effect, any sweet would've been good to him.

      Correct answer. But British tastes for sweets were always modest. Even before ww2 a popular British drink called a Sugarelly was made by just leaving licorice in water all day and then drinking it or shaking it up and sucking off the foam.

      Also keep in mind this was before the entire world was a bunch of fat fricks and the average adult man weighed 145 pounds.

                If you really wanted to make me look stupid you could've pointed out that correct school of thought I was referencing would be critical literary theory and that the philosophical school of critical theory has very little to do with media literacy.

                This was always a point of contention between me and my teachers. Quakers and the Episcopalians teaching at Quaker schools are always about this whole thing and my problem with it was that if the author/artist/whoever explicitly says, "no, my work is not meant to be taken that way," who are you to argue with WoG on the subject?

                It'd be easy to ignore if you didn't deny it when pointed out. And when you were proven wrong, you resorted to name-calling.
                Even before that, your argument was only to attack the people who use the term rather than the term itself, claiming that it doesn't matter now (in a discussion about understanding and interpreting media) because people you dislike have misused it before.
                As for the rebuttal you praised, that's just an appeal to authority.

                The meat of the argument is that media literacy is hailed as an end all, be all by the same person that things Narnia is about sucking wieners. It's a fine term on it's own that's been corrupted by people who don't actually know how to apply it.

                As to you calling me out.. .for what? It's been clear from the start that my issue isn't with the term itself so much as it's bastardization.
                People like myself are inclined to start ignoring people who tell you that you lack media literacy because you didn't view the piece of media through whatever lens they did.

      I lived in the US in the early 90s and was bombarded with adverts for Weaver's chicken nuggets. My parents would never buy them. Few years later, we moved back home but fast forward twenty years after that and I live in the US permanently now and saw Weaver's at the supermarket a couple years back so I bought a bag. Blandest motherfrickers I've ever had.
      All that wait and they blew hard. My parents knew what they were doing.
      Same thing happened with Viennetta. Used to see spots for it all the time back then so a few years back, when I saw one at the store, I bought the ice cream lasagne and it was the worst fricking ice cream I'd ever had.

      You got inauthentic cheap varieties with gelatin or something. Real Turkish delight is made with just sugar and cornstarch. The texture is very different from modern gummies. Also the most common varieties have no flavouring like rose water, just pieces of pistachio or hazelnut added in.
