this is the judge or judge holden from Cormac Mcarthy's blood meridian. a difficult but beautiful book in all its awe of nature and the easy violence dispensed in America.
the character the judge is a villain of most astounding excellence and a character i'm still vaguely obsessing over. he fits easily into the slot of being Mephistopheles, but sometimes i still think he is the earthly embodiment of the American god. a cultured, educated, charming, passionate and evil man.
