    Young Victor Hugo looks like Taylor Swift. Or: Can hotties write about non-hotties?

    Can non-hotties write about hotties?* Yes. This seems to me what 80 percent of all literature is about. But what about hotties writing about non-hotties?

    In an effort to scientifically prove that yes, yes they can, it has come to my attention that young Victor Hugo (who would go on to write about a famous non-hottie), looks an awful like Taylor Swift who is, I would say, “a hottie.” Ipso facto, Victor Hugo was a hottie.

    Quod erat demonstrandum that anyone can write about anyone.

    *I ask this question in response to the latest ridiculous literary Twitter kerfuffle that I refuse to take seriously.
