The Splendor of the Purple One

This blog is about Union. Well, so was Prince. Many tributes to him are rightly describing how otherworldly he was, an artist of genius, inspiration, and overwhelming power. True, all of it. But he was also quintessentially American. No other nation could have produced him; no other artist so perfectly represented the nation in their time. He was the strong force consolidating all the contradictions of American cultural life into a comprehensible whole one hit record at a time. Virtuosity and soul, sex and god, male and female, starfish and coffee.
