writing || the Charisma Myth by Olivia Fox Cabane

I started this book on June 24, 2017 while on a 7-hour plane ride to Scotland and finished it today, June 19, 2018 while driving to my local Starbucks. (No idea why those locations are relevant but hey, the more you know, eh?) So, I suppose it's fair to say it's taken me a full… Continue reading writing || the Charisma Myth by Olivia Fox Cabane

writing || IB HL English WIT || Blood and Water in Blood Wedding: An Exploration of the Symbols in Spanish Culture as represented through the Lullaby

In Blood Wedding, Federico Garcia Lorca constructs an environment that is heavily weighed down by cultural expectations. As both a playwright and an accomplished theatre director, Lorca’s command of dialogue, musical drama, and stage direction is used with purpose to create this tense, eerie atmosphere. In particular, the play’s recurring intra-textual Lullaby piece gives audiences an insight into its cultural setting by mirroring the language and symbolism its characters later employ in describing their feelings of suffocation and tension. It depicts an ancient struggle – one that is still relevant enough to be passed on through the generations. And in it, we see the juxtaposition of carnal flesh and blood with inanimate trees and rivers, both symbols that serve as metaphors for the forces at odds in the play.
