“Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.”
👤 Robert Frost (Four-time Pulitzer Prize winner) is one of the most well known and beloved poets in the American literary canon. He knew how to convey emotions through language.
🔘 Emotions are fickle. Sometimes they’re clear and brilliant: we’re happy, sad, frustrated, or angry. But emotions can also be complicated, layered, and conflicting. Sure, we’re happy, but we’re also kind of annoyed about something. We’re sad, but we also have something to be glad about. When emotions are textured and gritty, they are difficult to describe.

Arthur Miller wurde am 17. Oktober 1915 geboren und gilt als wichtiger gesellschaftskritischer Dramatiker der neueren Zeit. Seine sozial- und zeitkritischen Dramen wenden sich gegen den so genannten American Way of Life, bei dem der berufliche Erfolg im Mittelpunkt steht. Seine Bedeutung wird meist anhand seines erfolgreichsten und mit dem Pulitzer-Preis ausgezeichneten Stücks „Death of a Salesman“ belegt. Öffentliches Interesse erzielte auch seine Ehe mit Marilyn Monroe. #arthurmiller #zitate #gedanken #pulitzerprize #bücherliebe #bücherregal

Have you read either of these two novels by Donna Tartt? They are both among my top twenty reads. In my opinion, Donna Tartt is incredible wordsmith.
The Goldfinch - dark, gritty and centers around art history.
The Secret History - six college friends, a murder and blackmail.
The world premiere of Donja R. Love's Jim Crow South era play "Fireflies" officially opened last night at New York City's Atlantic Theater Company. Khris Davis and Dewanda Wise play a young married couple -- in the form of Dr. Martin Luther King and Coretta Scott King in the aftermath of the Birmingham church bombing which killed four little girls. Directed by Saheem Ali, the new play is the second part of Love’s black, queer-centered trilogy, which began with the acclaimed Manhattan Theatre Club premiere of "Sugar in Our Wounds." Wise -- star of Spike Lee's "She's Gotta Have It" Netflix series -- graduated with honors from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, Atlantic Acting School. Davis won acclaim in Lincoln Center Theater's production of "The Royale" in 2016 and went on to star in The Public Theater and Broadway productions of Lynn Nottage's Pulitzer Prize winning play "Sweat." The Obie and Drama Desk Award winner recently starred in the Emmy Award winning FX series "Atlanta" and appeared in the 2017 drama "Detroit." "Davis has physical presence and charisma to spare. And Wise... is absolutely riveting as the tortured Olivia, who has deep misgivings about bringing a child into a world wracked by racial hatred and violence," critic Frank Scheck wrote in his review for "The Hollywod Reporter" last night. Niche marketing specialist Cherine Anderson is handling grassroots audience development for the show, which is set to play a limited engagement through November 11th.

Why did Judeo-Christian society develop in Europe and not Peru?
Why were Tasmanians still using primitive technology when Europeans arrived?
Why weren’t Columbus and his men felled by diseases carried by the Arawak people they encountered on Hispaniola?
Why was it that English settlers colonised North America, instead of the other way around?
By synthesising history, biology, ecology, politics and linguistics, Professor Jared Diamond produced a theory of history that proves how it was geography and biogeography, rather than race or intellectual superiority, that helped produce a world where Eurasia became the dominant continent on Earth.
This book is so timely because it completely explodes any claim that the reason Europeans conquered Australia or Native America, or why Black Bantu Africans conquered large parts of Africa, was down to the inherent superiority of these groups over others, and is all to do with the sheer good fortune of being born in an area that has the prerequisites of a technologically advanced society: a diverse collection of domesticable crops and animals; consistent and favourable weather; and an axis that allows for effective dissemination and migration of technology and people.
Upon publication in 1997, the book won a Pulitzer Prize, and was the book that inspired @yuval_noah_harari
to write his best-selling ‘Sapiens’ and it should still be read by anyone who wants to understand how random forces can direct history.

ONCE AGAIN: Way before the exceptional playwright Lynn Nottage became a double Pulitzer Prize, Tony Award nominated, MacArthur "Genius Grant" Fellow Recipient, she wrote a fierce satire about a broke and broken African American publicist who has to return to the former ghetto existence she was sure she escaped. Produced by Playwrights Horizon in 2004, the play was titled "Fabulation, or The Re-Education of Undine" and starred the ultra-talented Charlayne Woodard and won rave reviews and went on to be produced regionally and internationally.
Now, the Obie Award winning Lileana Blain-Cruz is set to direct a revival at the Signature Theatre November 19th through December 30th. And a host of really talented black folks are starring in the show, most notably Cherise Boothe in the lead. The New York University has an illustrious career in film, television and theater, including the Obie Award winning "Milk Like Sugar" and Lynn Nottage's Pulitzer Prize winning "Ruined." Also on board is "Fairview" stars Mayaa Boateng and Heather Alicia Simms (who is on a major wave this year. Check this space for more on the Brooklyn bombshell.) Marcus Callender, J. Bernard Calloway, Dashiell Eaves, Ian Lassiterand Nikiya Mathis round out the cast. Don't miss "Fabulation" revived. The in-demand Blain-Cruz is a master at her craft. Tickets are only $35. Don't wait for a certain New York City elite newspaper to herald it for you to take heed -- and it will be sold out. (www.SignatureTheatre.org)
