    Allegory of the Cave: '20,000 Days on Earth' Spends 24 hours with Nick Cave
    Nick Cave, like Narcissus or Miley Cyrus, is a myth. But he’s a myth who thinks about myths, writes about them, knows how they work, and builds this knowledge into each new layer of the myth he’s becoming. In this he’s like a number of poet-musicians of a waning era: Bob Dylan and Neil Young, yeah, but also the beat poets, the blues singers, all the prophet-emulators, the storytellers who slide themselves into their tales. Many consider him gothic and gloomy. It would be more precise to say that he makes somberness comfortable and seductive because he licenses his listeners to affirm the widely unsayable—that depression is a mode of seeing the world for the boring and empty grind that it often really is. The self-aware myth knows that desire and disappointment are dialectically linked, that catharsis is the rare and gorgeous field of light between them. Knowing these rules lets him seduce this light into common being.
