The Clerks Ending We're Glad Didn't Happen

"Clerks" is a one-of-a-kind cult gem, a rude and raw low-budget comedy about a couple of clerks at a local convenience store. Director Kevin Smith made his debut feature by maxing out his credit cards and filming after closing the very store in which he worked, and it paid off — "Clerks" launched Smith's career and an entire "View Askewniverse" of movies, comic books, and a short-lived ABC cartoon series. What many fans don't know is that "Clerks" once had a very different ending, but Smith was ...

Dante’s Purgatory In A Time Of Global Uncertainty

The concept of Purgatory was relatively new when Dante was born. Dante’s conception of Purgatory is remarkably like a wilderness boot camp. Its terrain is forbidding—more like an alp than like a Tuscan hillside. – The New Yorker

Stalker #4 - Steve Ditko / Wally Wood art & cover

Steve Ditko / Wally Wood Stalker v1 #4, 1976 - Like Dante in the Divine Comedy, Stalker enters his own inferno, confronting the demon who took possession of his soul. Steve Ditko's drawings gain interest as the story progresses, culminating in a battle of two underworld armies.

William Blake’s 102 Illustrations of The Divine Comedy Collected in a Beautiful Book from Taschen

In his book on the Tarot, Alejandro Jodorowsky describes the Hermit card as representing mid-life, a “positive crisis,” a middle point in time; “between life and death, in a continual crisis, I hold up my lit lamp — my consciousness,” says the Hermit, while confronting the unknown. The figure recalls the image of Dante in the opening lines of the Divine Comedy. In Mandelbaum’s translation at Columbia’s Digital Dante, we see evident similarities: When I had journeyed half of our life’s way, I fo...

X-Men Origins: Wolverine Was Logan’s First Great Solo Video Game

Insomniac Games’ Wolverine was one of the surprise reveals in Sony’s September Showcase. The Spider-Man developer has a pedigree that makes it easy to have faith in its take on Marvel’s clawed hero. That title is pretty far away though — it wasn’t even given a vague release window — but there is already a great Wolverine game players can play in the meantime: 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine. It’s rare for video games based on movies to be any good and it’s even more rare that the game’s quality ...

The real scandal of Dante’s Beatrice

2021 sees the 700th anniversary of the death of poet Dante Alighieri. To mark this, we asked authors of some of our new publishing on Dante, to write for the OUPblog. For over 700 years, Dante’s description of his first encounter with Beatrice has scandalized readers. Medieval commentators debate Dante’s possible blasphemy in glorifying a mortal woman. Counter-reformation editors censor it. Some modern interpreters see it as a theological or political allegory without biographical foundation, w...

Dante’s Divine Comedy: A Free Course from Columbia University

As we approach the 700th anniversary of Dante Alighieri’s death (September 14), we wanted to feature a timely resource: Teodolinda Barolini, a professor at Columbia University, has posted online a course for anyone who wishes to read Dante’s Commedia from beginning to end. It features 54 recorded lectures, covering Inferno, Purgatorio and Paradiso, with each cantica being read in its entirety.

‘Look, I Overcame!’: contesting normative narratives with Dante’s Comedy

2021 sees the 700th anniversary of the death of poet Dante Alighieri. To mark this, we asked authors of some of our new publishing on Dante to write for the OUPblog. Do comedies owe us a happy ending? When Dante called his masterpiece a “comedy” the explanation of his title was fairly straightforward. Comedies promise to guide us from difficult beginnings to happy endings:And from this it is clear that the present work is to be described as a comedy. For if we consider the subject-matter, at th...

100 Days of Dante: Join the Largest Divine Comedy Reading Group in the World (Starts September 8)

This year marks the 700th anniversary of Dante Alighieri’s death — which means it also marks the 701st anniversary of his great work the Divina Commedia, known in English as the Divine Comedy. We’ve all got to go some time, and it’s somehow suitable that Dante went not long after telling the tale of his own journey through the afterlife, complete with stops in Hell, Purgatory, and Paradise. It remains a journey we can all take and re-take — and interpretively grapple with — still these s...

What Makes Rodin’s The Thinker a Great Sculpture: An Introduction to Rodin Life, Craft & Iconic Work

Auguste Rodin’s The Thinker exists in about 28 full-size bronze casts, each approximately 73 inches high, in museums around the world, as well as several dozen castings of smaller size and plaster models and studies. The Thinker also exists as one of the most copied and parodied artworks in world history, perhaps because of its ubiquity. “Unfortunately,” Joseph Phelan writes at the Artcyclopedia, “there is a side of Rodin’s work that has become kitsch through cheap reproductions and comm...

Kevin Smith Reveals A First Look At Clerks III Meticulously Recreating The Original Clerks

Kevin Smith has been busy working on "Clerks III." The writer/director is getting a little nostalgic with the sequel, which is coming 15 years since we last saw the titular convenience store slackers Dante (Brian O'Halloran) and Randal (Jeff Anderson) in the fast food game in "Clerks II." Inspired by his own near-death experience, the sequel finds Randal pooling his resources to make a movie about the time he and Dante have spent working behind a counter, not unlike Kevin Smith did with the orig...

Ranking Every Ron Howard Feature Film From Worst To Best

When it comes to directors with impressive resumes, none are quite as fascinating as Ron Howard.

Full Moon in Aquarius: Conga Line

M odern astrology offers contradictory messages about Aquarius, the sign of this Full Moon: Aquarius symbolizes weirdness, iconoclasm, and innovation, but also friendship and membership in groups. So which is it? Well, I guess it’s both, really. Aquarius signals sensitivity to the collective, whether it’s because you feel an affinity for it or something a bit like horror. And the truth is, humans are social creatures, so this is something that pertains to each of us. Prowling Facebook one morn...

Holloway and Hoelun.

Two items that have nothing to do with each other except the nicely chiming names: 1) I learn from Lev Oborin’s roundup (in Russian) of literary news that Julia Bolton Holloway claims to have discovered a manuscript in Dante’s hand. This seems like it would be big news, but Oborin links to a Daily Fail story that I didn’t even bother to click on, and when I googled [holloway dante manuscript] I got only a few hits, all from almost a month ago and with almost no details — this LitHub piece shows...

Explore Divine Comedy Digital, a New Digital Database That Collects Seven Centuries of Art Inspired by Dante’s Divine Comedy

The number of artworks inspired by Dante’s Divine Comedy in the seven hundred years since the poet completed his epic, vernacular masterwork is so vast that referring to the poem inevitably means referring to its illustrations. These began appearing decades after the poet’s death, and they have not stopped appearing since. Indeed, it might be fair to say that the title Divine Comedy (simply called Comedy before 1555) names not only an epic poem but also its many constellations of artworks and...
