Hmm.

“To embrace your hero in his destruction, however — to let your hero’s life occur within you when everything is trying to diminish him, to imagine yourself into his bad luck, to implicate yourself not in his mindless ascendancy, when he is the fixed point of your adulation, but in the bewilderment of his tragic fall — well, that’s worth thinking about.”

American Pastoral, by Philip Roth
