Since I love being late to trends, I just recently discovered the wonderful web series “How It Should Have Ended” (or HISHE for short).
The novel I am quoting this week is Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro.
I recently came across this delightful video in which scenes from Game of Thrones were edited to make the series look like a romantic comedy.
The poem of the week is “Among the Multitude” by Walt Whitman. Whitman certainly has a gift with longer poems, but I think “Among the Multitude” shows his true genius.
Over the years Phish has gained a cult-like following for their command of different genres of music and embracement of the psychedelic lifestyle, but many casual fans may not realize that their music often has a literary undertone.
The novel I am grabbing a quote from this week is a triumph of modern fantasy, The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss (the first book in his series known as The Kingkiller Chronicles).
In the late 1800′s, Edward Burne-Jones created a series of paintings titled “The Legend of Briar Rose”, inspired by the classic fairy tale, “Sleeping Beauty”.
The poem for this week is “For the Book of Love” by the French symbolist poet Jules LaForgue.
Since I am still reading Oliver Twist, I decided to use it for this week’s “Many Covers” feature.
I am currently re-reading Oliver Twist (I’m on a classic literature kick), so I thought I’d pull a quote from the novel to feature as the quote of the week.
