John Farrier's Comments

When Richard Adams, the author of Watership Down, was a little boy, he saw a Punch and Judy puppet show. In it, Punch brutally murdered a baby. Adams fled in horror. He grew up but, he recollects in his memoir, "I still remained unable to deal with Mr Punch, in whatever guise he came."

Punch is the brutal monster looming in his fiction. General Woundwort and Genshed and masked versions of Punch.
Abusive comment hidden. (Show it anyway.)
