Four Plays of Aeschylus Part 2

Four Plays of Aeschylus Part 2

The Seven Against Thebes (Ἑπτὰ ἐπὶ Θήβας) depicts the siege of Thebes along with the cruel fate of the two brothers, Eteocles and Polynices, who were cursed by their father, the late King Oedipus, for not taking care of their blind father and for their selfishness and thirst for power. From my point of view, […]

Four Plays of Aeschylus Part 1

Though I’ve already written a review in Romanian for Prometheus Bound, it would have been strange if I didn’t write something about the entire volume that includes four of Aeschylus’ tragedies: The Suppliant Maidens, The Persians, The Seven Against Thebes and Prometheus Bound. What you need to know about Aeschylus is that he is one […]

And Then The Nightmare Came At Last

And Then The Nightmare Came At Last

I love this book just as much as I did last year. Perhaps even more, if that’s possible. As far as I know, the English version hasn’t been published yet. Until then and before I write about some other stories by Oliviu Crâznic, I figured it would be a good idea to turn my attention […]

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow

One of the games that I accidentally stumbled across after I have acquired a better laptop with more powerful graphics was Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. I was intrigued by the story, the graphics, the music and, of course, the voicing parts. Not being included in the whole Castlevania series, this game stands out by the […]

Issues of Identity 2

19th Century American Fiction Part 1 As time goes by, nature seems to lose the battle against industrialization. In a world that becomes more and more mechanical and materialistic we find a character like Bartleby, one who draws our attention to the fact that people are not brought together by progress, but they are pushed […]
