Kinky Literature


Last week, I had a literature class activity where I asked students to draw visual plot mindmaps thingy on one chapter of the novel they were studying, which is The Curse by Lee Su Ann.

If you have bothered to read the notes I painstakingly made and posted on this blog about the novel, you’d know what the novel is about.

And if you don’t, let me spare you from clicking the link above.   The novel is about a murder of woman in Langkawi island named Madhuri.  Her sister, Azreen, is on a witchhunt to find out who did it.  

These are some of their works:






However, there was one work of art that made me think of nasty, demented sex.

To understand my students’ unexplainable mistake I’m ‘bout to show you, here’s a brief background story.  Madhuri was married to the village head, Haji Ghani.  Haji Ghani’s first wife, Puan Fatihah, was never happy about her husband’s astraying dick to his new wife.  The death of Madhuri made Haji Ghani even more of a douche to her, no matter how hard Puan Fatihah tried to make him happy.  He kept looking at his wedding photos of him and Madhuri, and ignored Puan Fatihah’s beckon to go have pity/revenge/happy sex now that Madhuri is gone.  Okay, that wasn’t stated exactly in the novel, but neither was this:

But how?
Sometimes I wonder where they get these ideas from.
