Caroline's Darkness: What Does It Mean? 

By William Shakespeare
Master of the Double and Triple Entendre

You may ask: Why is Caroline still without power? Why is she still in the dark when most of her friends in the area never lost power? What does it all mean?

The obvious read would be that Caroline has an inner darkness, even as her exterior world shines brightly.  Another obvious read would be that Caroline is currently struggling with some kind of moral indecision. You may remember that I did a big thing on that with Macbeth.

But honestly, I don't think that any of that fancy symbolic/metaphoric blahbiddyblah is going on with Caroline.  My interpretation is that she's just screwed.
