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

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 […]

Crimson Peak

I was actually thinking about postponing this until… next week, maybe. But what the hell? Let’s do this! I’m going to write about Crimson Peak today, a Guillermo del Toro film, one I’ve been waiting to see since the day I heard the first whispers about it. Let me tell you this: there will be […]

Realmente Inimaginable

Realmente Inimaginable

Te ahogas, te asfixias, Tus ojos se aguan, la piel se eriza. El quemar del agua empiezas a sentir Y, te preguntas: “Podré resistir? O será posible dejar de fingir?” La vista se nubla, el cielo se obscurece; Todo lo que tenías sobre ti desaparece. Irónicamente, en tu momento de muerte eres libre. Libre. Al […]

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow

April 5, 2015
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 […]

…art thou player or audience? ~*~ If there are any gamers out there, you might be familiar with these cryptic words and recognize them as a part of the lyrics that can be heard throughout a specific moment in Silent Hill 3. The song and its riddle aside, I want to present to you something […]

The Crow (2) – It can’t rain all the time

Welcome back! Please make sure you read the first part of this analysis of the tragic in order to understand where this is going. Now, let us continue… ~*~ However, is Eric truly guilty of this hybris? We do not know whether he chose to be brought back, refused to “move on” like any good […]

The Crow (1) – Victims, aren’t we all?

The Crow (1) – Victims, aren’t we all?

The title of this article copies a rather famous quote from the movie The Crow. Because I’m a big fan of the tragedy genre and its many subtleties, I sort of got a penchant for finding such stories or at least aspects that can be considered tragic (in a strict poetic way). I really do […]

The Treacherous Tramp

The Treacherous Tramp

This poison, this filth… take it away! I have no need to indulge in this disease, I will not be led astray! It barters in tragedy and humiliation, It charters a path to madness and self-annihilation, It wrecks homes and brings about the end of any decency, A hurricane of troubles leaving for peace of […]

Food for thought

Food for thought

Motto-ul: mici perle de înţelepciune… iar alteori kitch. Toată lumea astăzi are, cunoaşte sau foloseşte activ unul. Dacă le auzim într-un context favorabil le luăm ca inspiraţie, ne pun pe gânduri. Dacă nu, de le vedem prin statusuri în reţele de socializare, neavând nici o legătură cu momentul şi mai ales dacă nu ne place […]
