Marilyn Monroe is an icon. Marilyn is used by artists and intellectuals as a symbol of everything from the highest innocence of an individual to the worst corruption of society. She represents both the greatest success and the most tragic failure. Marilyn is an important icon for everyone because these things are important to everyone. And we all have our own personal take on her because of it. This allows Marilyn to be a sort of lightening rod for detecting the true character of the new people we meet every day. For example, some people adore Marilyn, and we have seen time and time again that such people turn out to be good people, people who value themselves and their lives and are willing to work hard to be good and successful. Such people love life as Marilyn did so they see enthusiasm in her more than anything else. Other people turn their noses up at Marilyn. Over and over these people turn out to be mean spirited and petty. They are unmoved by Marilyn's joy and beauty and see only the failure of her and of our "shallow" society when they look at her. Marilyn-haters always blame others for their own failures in life, and when it comes right down to it they will even blame Marilyn for it. The second group of people are by far the largest. In fact they are so numerous that it is their negative reaction to her that killed Marilyn in the end. We're sure you yourself have your own view of Marilyn, and we hope it's a good one, because if it is, this set was created for you.
