I watched a full docummentary on him before; one of the only places to get info on him. And it revels a few things about his character. He was a hermit/recluse, and he would work on his books (books of only some 100 words sometimes) for months or a year at a time. Re-hashing and re-writing them endlessly, because he wanted to get these few words 'just right'. And although his children's books seem seamlessly written in like 10 seconds, it took him a great deal of thinking to get the words to flow so seamlessly. But this shows to me a lot of Ji perfectionism.
Ne's Indiscriminate Correlation
We also see a very strong imprint of Ne's buoyancy in his work. From the sing-songy rhythmic tunes he uses, to the fantasically created (made-up) words... they're the same sort of books we see written by NeFi like Linda Liukas, NeFi Mo O'Hara, NeFi Kate Miccuci, and FiNe Joe Rowling also does her share of word-invention.
Fi & Political Bent
Yet, just like so many Fi-leads, and J-leads in general, he couldn't help add his political opinions into his work. Some of his books were taken off because of it.
Among his most famous works is How the Grinch Stole Christmas, which stars two characters.
Seelie Fi: Cindy Lou Who
As well as all whovillians, who are just a whole village of seelie Fi's - complete with the upward tension...
Unseelie Fi: The Grinch
This story is actually a fairytale. The grinch is a sort of fae, as is Cindy Lou Who. In this case, the Grinch is an unseelie fairy the same way Rumpelstiltskin is. He's fiendish and foul. Nasty, cretin-like and destructive. Bitter. Going off the conversations lately, related to Fi and how it either manifets as life-honoring or as 'squelched' life-force... it's fascinating to me the way the Grinch is describe in the following iconic poem:
~ The Unseelie Fi Poem ~
You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch You really are a heel, You're as cuddly as a cactus, you're as charming as an eel, Mr. Grinch, You're a bad banana with a greasy black peel!
You're a monster, Mr. Grinch, Your heart's an empty hole, Your brain is full of spiders, you have garlic in your soul, Mr. Grinch, I wouldn't touch you with a thirty-nine-and-a-half foot pole!
You're a foul one, Mr. Grinch, You have termites in your smile, You have all the tender sweetness of a seasick crocodile, Mr. Grinch, Given a choice between the two of you'd take the seasick crocodile!
You're a rotter, Mr. Grinch, You're the king of sinful sots, Your heart's a dead tomato splotched with moldy purple spots, Mr. Grinch, You're a three decker sauerkraut and toadstool sandwich with arsenic sauce!
You nauseate me, Mr. Grinch, With a nauseous super "naus"!, You're a crooked dirty jockey and you drive a crooked hoss, Mr. Grinch, Your soul is an appalling dump heap overflowing with the most disgraceful assortment of rubbish imaginable mangled up in tangled up knots!
You're a foul one, Mr. Grinch, You're a nasty wasty skunk, Your heart is full of unwashed socks, your soul is full of gunk, Mr. Grinch, The three words that best describe you are as follows, and I quote, "Stink, stank, stunk"!
To me this poem describes that same putrid, squelched life force that the Fi+Ni avant garde captures at times, but in more fantastical (Ne) form. a tarnished inner "essence". it's like the Grinch himself is described as a corrupted soul. so in a way the Grinch seems to me a child-safe version of Beksinski's morbid expression. It's more "PG" but it describes the same phenomenon.
"Your brain is full of spiders, you have garlic in your soul"
Your soul is an appalling dump heap overflowing with the most disgraceful assortment of rubbish imaginable mangled up in tangled up knots!
