thepurposeofplaying said: OMG THE MONK I HAD FORGOTTEN ABOUT IT BUT OH MY SWEET JESUS THAT F UCKING BOOK
I LOVE THE MONK IT IS SO FUCKING WEIRD and just I love how it mocks Gothic but also plays into it
also it did the Lucifer-is-actually-a-hot-guy thing
also Coleridge thought it was too shocking for people’s sons and daughters
(this is the point where I admit I’m really interested in 1790s Gothic as well as my other literature interests)thepurposeofplaying
literature meme × genres [1/2]
Gothic fiction, sometimes referred to as Gothic horror, is a genre or mode of literature that combines fiction, horror and Romanticism. Its origin is attributed to English author Horace Walpole, with his 1763 novel The Castle of Otranto, subtitled (in its second edition) “A Gothic Story.” The effect of Gothic fiction feeds on a pleasing sort of terror, an extension of Romantic literary pleasures that were relatively new at the time of Walpole’s novel. Melodrama and parody (including self-parody) were other long-standing features of the Gothic initiated by Walpole. It originated in England in the second half of the 18th century and had much success in the 19th as witnessed by Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and the works of Edgar Allan Poe. Another well known novel in this genre, dating from the late Victorian era, is Bram Stoker’s Dracula. The name Gothic refers to the (pseudo)-medieval buildings in which many of these stories take place. This extreme form of romanticism was very popular in England and Germany. The English gothic novel also led to new novel types such as the German Schauerroman and the French roman noir. [more]
(via siegfriedlorainesassoon)1790s Gothic is brilliant go read The Monk if you like Gothic stuff or some Ann Radcliffe just horror type fiction also inspired by the french revolution and Burke's sublime yes please gothic frankenstein castle of otranto (which is very weird but a lot of gothic stuff is)
that's it I wanna rewatch star wars
(via cakesandfail)titus andronicus on a side note so sad this production closed on sunday they always looked like they were having a ball doing it
I love it Rosalind is my fave and her and Celia would totally do that and be so pleased with themselves as you like it
i accidentally posted before i got another brilliant idea so i kinda lost the ask, but here’s the things anyway:
i don’t think you understand but ROSALIND IS MY SECOND FAVE SHAKESPEARE HEROINE (behind Beatrice, the sassiest queen of my heart) OF COURSE I WILL DRAW YOU ROSALIND I’VE BEEN MEANING TO FOR LIKE FOREVER
as you like it au where rosalind and celia infiltrate an all-men’s shakespeare club called the arden players? i don’t even know. the play breaks the 4th wall sometimes so i guess it works.
"ganymede, i know the script is calling for brutus and cassius to kiss in act iv scene iii because the director wants to put them in a relationship, but i don’t know how comfortable i am with it???"
"do you have a girlfriend?"
"uh… no, but i have a crush."
"what’s your crush’s name?"
"…..why don’t you, uh, say our dialogues like you’re saying them to rosalind? substitute the name ‘cassius’ for ‘rosalind’. see how that works out."
Me: Shame they didn’t reshuffle George Osbourne, make him minister for Antarctica or something
Mum: That’s too close. Minister for Saturn…he probably wouldn’t realise you can’t live there.she never swears but she just called Michael Gove a twat exciting times with rolling news politics
