1. Reading Sappho 2. The Erotics of Domination 3. Women Poets in Ancient Greece & Rome 4. Gendered Dynamics in Latin Love Poetry All by my prof Ellen Greene. They’re not about myth per se but maybe one will lead deuxencore in the right direction

Agree w/ red-pulp, Louise Gluck’s Averno

I forgot to mention Louise Glück’s “Averno”, turning in my gun and Classics badge, I’m off the Classics case.

Title: The Face Beneath the Waves Artist: AFI 499 plays

clarabeau:

If you’ve ever needed a soundtrack for:

Shambling through the bayou towards the glow of your murderer’s window.

Scratching curse circles in chalk and blood under the bed of a faithless lover.

Burning down the cornfield.

Sealing the soul of your enemy in the oldest oak in the forest.

Gliding over a silent black lake.

Plug in your headphones and turn up the volume because wow, have I got the song for you.

Oh man, this is such a good question and I am so unqualified to answer it. Do any Classics friends have suggestions? The one thing that pops to mind for me is not an academic source, but Margaret Atwood’s The Penelopiad is supposed to be incredible. It’s the next thing on my list.

I WAS BORN FOR THIS MOMENT

Woke up this morning with a headache in half a Hogwarts schoolgirl costume, have vague memories of red and yellow streamers and struggling to project my voice over Ke$ha’s Timber, telling people about how the Civil War was almost single-handedly responsible for the surge in ghost stories in American culture because before the war family members died at home and the bodies could be seen and properly grieved for but during the war people left and never came back, their bodies never came back, and it completely upset the grieving process because people just couldn’t believe their family members were really gone!

as someone who decided to reread naruto for the same nostalgia reasons this month I can clarify - no. nothing with sasuke and naruto has been resolved. there’s like 4 chapters left and NOTHING HAS BEEN RESOLVED. otherwise gaara looks great I’m proud.

Wow let me tell you what this really rustles my jimmies!! If Sasuke and Naruto are not properly reconciled then what was the point of this exercise?? It is very important that they find mutual respect and family in each other! Also I found out my boy Neji died and stayed ghosted?? Pulling up my trousers to my waist and stomping right on over here, what the hell you bring everyone back, you bring Guy-sensei back, but you kill Neji and Neji stays dead?? My noble Pantene, my white-eyed patrician, where is logic, where is reason, o tempora o mores.

Whatever, if Sasuke is irredeemable and Itachi and Neji are dusted †RIP†, anyone but Gaara.

…But seriously if Naruto and Sasuke don’t clasp hands in friendship on the last panel I will personally challenge Masashi Kishimoto to a fatal duel, I wanna ROCKS mune ni ROCKS.
