Hi folks, I'm reading the original Dune again, for the first time in (believe it or not) several years. I know the world, the basic plot, and a few of the main ideas fairly well, but I just finished the first chapter and there are certain ideas that feel brand new. For example, Paul's sense of rightness, and how that interacts with the Bene Gesserit ideal; the gom jobbar test, and its implications; is Paul a kind of gom jobbar? And then there are some of the larger themes of the book itself. Anyway, I don't know if it's been done before, but there's a monthly community analysis of Butcher's Dresden Files series on the Dresden subreddit, and I thought it would be fun to try that here. Importantly, even if there has been a community analysis of themes in the book before (which, obviously, is kind of what we do on this board ;) ) this thread will allow for a more recent analysis and may be fun for everyone.
