Dark MuseumPaperback ë Dark Museum Kindle ´ dark ebok, museum pdf, Dark MuseumDark Museum PDF/EPUBLiterary Nonfiction Poetry Translated from the Spanish by Michelle Gil Montero In this book of lyric critical essays, Argentinian poet and critic Mar a Negroni writes about Gothic works ranging from Horace Walpole s classic novel The Castle of Otranto to Julia Kristeva s Black Sun to James Cameron s film Aliens and develops an accumulative, absorbing, transnational theory of politics and aesthetics In the introduction she writes I want to share something of that fascinating imaginary, packed with castles and lakes, crypts and laboratories, music boxes and evil gardens, urban ruins and boats like coffins ferrying magnificent dreams Because in that atmosphere, it is my impression, something crucial materializes a purely sentimental domain where it is suddenly possible to perceive, under any light, the critical link between childhood and atrocity, art and crime, passion and fear, and the desire for fusion and writing.

    Poetry as Gothic In the Gothic castle, strange as it may seem, there are no strongholds The lyric is born and spent there, as in unstable places where the only sure way is the detour There the soul transforms its sorrows into an infinite metaphor for the strange that is, for a terrifying freedom 9

    short lyrical essays that pack a lot in, but leave as much unsaid would love to get hold of the original text translation seems great, but some grounding of the project by the english publisher would have been helpful.3.5
