The perverted world of Asbjørnsen & Moe

In Kultur, Litteratur on april 29, 2011 at 4:01 pm

During the first half of the 1800’s, Peter Christen Asbjørnsen (1813-1882) and Jørgen Moe (1812-1885) travelled around Norway to collect folktales. The fantastic, but kind of cute and innocent, tales of Per, Pål and Espen Askeladd evoked both surprise and indignation.

Zizek caught in language(s)

In Filosofi, Kultur, Litteratur on mars 13, 2011 at 11:35 pm

It is not necessary to introduce Slavoj Zizek in a context like this – his name gets mentioned in various contexts these days. Zizek thinks about everything, and he states publicly everything he thinks. And this he does everywhere, in books, articles, television, even films.
