|Introduction||Modern artists work with classical mythological allusions as they would work with metaphors. A classical myth may enter a narrative introducing all or some of the thematic shorthand inherent in the classical myth. While archetypal allusions are interesting, my interests have me looking for overt allusions to classical myths.|
|Interests||the reception of classical mythology in arts, especially the Orpheus Myth|
|Favorite Movies||Vertigo, Slumdog Millionaire, (random) Das Boot ... (TV series) Pushing Daisies|
|Favorite Music||Gluck's Orfeo, Beethoven Late String Quartets|
|Favorite Books||Aeneid, Ovid's Metamorphoses, Grapes of Wrath|
