Recently, Devika Fernando tagged me in a game where each person had to name five of their favourite actors, three of each actor’s works and then tag their friends to play along. I joined forces with Elena, we put our thinking caps on and we came up with a list of ten actors we love […]

Alan Rickman Quotes

Alan Rickman Quotes

I wanted to post something else today, but then we all learnt that Alan Rickman passed away. I can’t believe that happened… when the announcement appeared, I thought (hoped) that it was some sick joke. Unfortunately, it wasn’t. Until I’ll be ready to write reviews for his films, enjoy some of the poems read by […]

Upon Julia’s Clothes

Whenas in silks my Julia goes, Then, then (methinks) how sweetly flows That liquefaction of her clothes. Next, when I cast mine eyes, and see That brave vibration each way free, O how that glittering taketh me! By Robert Herrick Read by Alan Rickman

We have forgot who fired the house Whose easy mischief spilled first blood Under one raging roof we lie The fault no longer understood But as our twisted arms […]

Dogs and Bones

After a few days of war the Sarajevo streets were a catwalk for dogs: perfumed dogs, well-groomed dogs, dogs with cut-glass collars and not a flea between them.  Their owners had left them as they left the burning city. The trash-heaps became a battlefield where the lapdogs lost to an army of strays, lean-limbed and […]

Delight in Disorder

Delight in Disorder

A sweet disorder in the dress Kindles in clothes a wantonness; A lawn about the shoulders thrown Into a fine distraction; An erring lace, which here and there Enthrals the crimson stomacher; A cuff neglectful, and thereby Ribands to flow confusedly; A winning wave, deserving note, In the tempestuous petticoat; A careless shoe-string, in whose […]

Sonnet 130

Sonnet 130

My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun; Coral is far more red than her lips’ red; If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun; If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head. I have seen roses damask’d, red and white, But no such roses see I in her cheeks; And […]

Why I love Sweeney Todd

Why I love Sweeney Todd

The character, not Tim Burton’s musical… it would be an extremely long article if I wrote on that topic. No, there’s too much to say on the film. Go watch it if you haven’t, you won’t regret it. Anyway, what made me write about this? A few days ago we spoke in class about the […]
