the matter of your narrator's reliability

a confession: the record of my journey you have seen thus far? each post was made at least ten days after we experienced it.

sorry. I've felt like keeping these to myself for a while, sitting with them, rather than running my mouth off, as has previously been my want.


when approaching any text, show, image, etc., one should always question the narrator's reliability. can we trust what is being told/shown? in what ways? is the narrator disclosing fully or partly? honestly? or with the intent to mislead? does the text/show/image maintain it's truth, knowing our narrator is unreliable? is its poetry still valid and compelling? or does the narrator's unreliability bring the entire matter into dubious question?
