The Past

“‘The past is a foreign country,’ L.P. Hartley wrote in the opening line of The Go-Between (1953); ‘they do things differently there.’ This observation applies not only to the collective or societal past but to the individual and psychological past as well: childhood remains – to a remarkable degree – an unexplored territory whose inhabitants have a culture comprising intricate customs and codes that are uniquely his own, seldom recorded or analyzed, usually forgotten in adulthood” (Hutchings, 1994).
