Don't Worry Darling: Florence Pugh And Harry Styles Furiously Make Out In Olivia Wilde's Psychological Thriller

Between Greta Gerwig, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and Olivia Wilde, I couldn't be more thrilled about this great-actor-to-surprisingly-great-filmmaker pipeline in recent years. Gerwig has quickly established herself as one of the best and most in-demand writer/directors in the business right now and Gyllenhaal's "The Lost Daughter" recently premiered to positive reactions at the Venice Film Festival. After debuting with the very well-received comedy "Booksmart" in 2019, Wilde is now flexing her genre mus...

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...

French Ways

Finally at the end of summer the warm weather has arrived in Provence, driving everyone either inside or to the beach. Luckily, for us our maison du village (house in the village) has stone walls that are over three feet thick. Our maison's wall butts up against the neighbor's maison's wall creating a six foot thick stone wall. Insulation at its finest: Cool interior in the summer, holds heat in during the winter. Our home is a mere four hundred years old... and yes most French household ke...

‘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...

Hymn, by designer Hiroto Yoshizoe for the Japanese lighting brand Ambientec, is like a deconstructed candle flame. Better said, it’s a contemporary capitulation of that flickering phenomena, one that achieves its luminescent incantations not through the element of fire, but rather through human ingenuity and inspiration. Yoshizoe was drawn to the flame one afternoon at a Florence church: “In a chapel illuminated by a thin beam of natural light from outdoors, I was captivated by...

Under the Stars

  If you've ever gazed up at the night sky, dotted with stars, and have felt a sense of wonder at the immensity of it all, you'll probably enjoy this book by Matt Gaw. You don't need to be an astrologer or an astronomer to appreciate the night sky, simply someone who likes to look up - and maybe get a cricked neck in the process - as you gaze through the darkness of the night.
