A Filmmaker’s Guide to the 19th Century Novel
Everyone knows that there have been many, many adaptations of 19th century novels, and everyone knows that there have been countless different methods of adapting them. Whether you go with Boris Karloff starring as Frankenstein in the 1931 classic, or whether you go with Tony Stark creating Ultron, the monster that sabotage’s the second Avengers film in a modern perspective. From Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde in 1920 to The Incredible Hulk, 19th century Novels are some of the most popular novels to adapt either in full, or to adapt characters from.
'The Aeneid' by Virgil (Pt. 3)
We are now going to look at the history of TheAeneid briefly as there are a couple of question which require immediate answering. These questions, when answered, change the meaning of the text and change how we understand why it was written at all. The very first question is of whether Virgil died before he could finish writing it.
My Top 20 Essential Albums (Pt. 2)
This is the second part to my top 20 essential albums and I'm making this because I really just couldn't fit all my favourites into the first part. If you haven't read Part One, then you can read it here. It may help when it comes to understanding this second part.
My Recommended Lipsticks
Now, if you know me, you'd probably know that I own a hell of a lot of lipstick. I mean I own a TON of lipstick. There are good lipsticks, there are bad lipsticks, and there are lipsticks that you wear all the time regardless of which clothes you're wearing. If you've seen my other article, you'd know that my skin is pretty sensitive and has been pretty much harnessed and ruined by various vitamin deficiencies. This means that my lips are almost greying, they peel really easily, and they have various cuts on them from time to time. But, if you look at my profile photo—you can't see them. This is because though I may own a lot of lipsticks, I choose them very carefully. I choose them based on their:
'The Aeneid' by Virgil (Pt. 2)
Now what we're going to look at is the mythology regarding The Aeneid and where we think it came from. These include the Roman Gods and Goddesses and the Roman foundation myth of Romulus and Remus. Of course, Virgil didn't really establish these myths, but he brought them into the mainstream of ancient Roman literary culture. Let's begin with Romulus and Remus since that is the foundation myth of ancient Rome.
A Review of My Favourite Foundations
My skin is pretty sensitive, so I have to be careful when buying a new foundation. I do all my reading, and after a few days or weeks—I can possibly buy my next foundation and test it out. Most people know that the two places to best test foundation is on your chest and on the back of your hand. My skin is also pretty grey because I have anaemia and so, I need a foundation that doesn't make my skin look grey, and can make me more radiant, lightened and possibly, with more of my own colour in my skin. (I'm a very light-skinned Indian if you want to imagine that. Or, likewise, check out my profile picture at the end of this article.)
My 20 Essential Albums
I have a number of favourite albums, and admittedly, it took me a while to put this together, because I knew I had to have one thing my music taste sometimes lacks: variety. If you already know me, then you know I'm a big 40s, 50s, and 60s fan–but this isn't really about me personally. This is more about which albums I think have been put together with real precision, and real thought. If you want to check out my personal tastes then I suggest you take a look at my lists on my "Essential Songs" by various artists including: Bob Dylan, Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and many, many more.
'The Aeneid' by Virgil
The Aeneid was written during the reign of Emperor Augustus, and penned between the years of 29 and 19 BC. It is normally split into two sections–the first deals with Aeneas' journey, and the next deals with a full-scale war. Virgil, according to scholars, wrote The Aeneid to rival Homer's works, but this is not confirmed. What is confirmed though, is the fact that the people of Ancient Rome treated The Aeneid as historical fact, and therefore, it solidified the Julio-Claudian dynasty as the descendants of the heroes of Rome and Troy.
