Proof Against It
In the latter pages of Richard Adams' Watership Down (which I just completed with my 7th and 8th Grade literature class), I came across this reflective statement:
"Many human beings say that they enjoy the winter, but what they really enjoy is feeling proof against it." (p. 465)
I wonder if that might also be the rationale for why some people also like horror movies.
