Fifty Shades Of Grey, the trilogy of the 21st Century

enero 4th, 2014 · No hay Comentarios


Zoe Williams, a journalist for The Guardian newspaper, wrote about the Fifty Shades of Grey from E.L. James, in July 2012. Zoe gave her opinion about those books, which have become incredibly successful whole around the world. Apart from their success, this trilogy has had also lots of critics due to the fact that its main theme is “sex”.

“James’s sex scenes are not incidental, they are the meat of the plot, the crux of the conflict, the key to at least one of and possibly both the central characters. It is a sex book. It is not a book with sex in it”, Zoe Williams

The main characters of this trilogy are Anastasia Steele, a college graduate, and Christian Grey, a business magnate. The trilogy is notable for its explicitly erotic scenes involving bondage/discipline, dominance/submission, and sadism/masochism. The second book is called Fifty Shades Darker, and the third one Fifty Shades Freed.


“For me, a pornographic book is functional, written to help you to get excited. If you want to speak about sex in a novel or any “ambitious” writing, today, in the 21st century, you must be explicit. You cannot be metaphorical any longer,” Catherine Millet

Surely, the movie about this trilogy will be performed in Spain in the summer of 2015. The actor Jamie Dornan in the role of Christian grey, and the actress Dakota Johnson in the role of Anastasia Steele. The three books will be in an only movie, so it will be a thriller film full of love, sex and excitement.
