Quote of the Day
We read Robert Browning's poetry. Here we needed no guidance from the professor: the poems themselves were enough.
There's something brave and touching about game girls of all ages keeping themselves smart in hard times - one thinks of those wonderful women during World War II drawing stocking seams in eyebrow pencil up the back of legs stained with gravy browning because nylons were so hard to get hold of.
I watched a lot of silent directors who were absolutely great like John Ford and Fritz Lang, Tod Browning, and also some very modern directors like The Coen Brothers. The directors take the freedom within their own movies to be melodramatic or funny when they chose to be. They do whatever they want and they don't care about the genre.
I entirely agree with you about the obscurity of Mrs Browning's line about the stars. It is far-fetched. She wanted to express something which she found beyond expression.
The Browning love story? It is an ideal, all too rare, and yet I hardly think it strange. It would have been far stranger had the fates allowed those two brilliant passionate souls to beat themselves out in silence.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning could write a poem two pages long. Could she have brought it to a music publisher?
Browning's tragedies are tragedies without villains.
When I hear the word culture - I release the safety-catch of my Browning.
Whenever I hear the word culture, I reach for my Browning!
