by Leslie Jamison on August 4, 2020 at 4:08 pm
It would be easy to summarize ‘Being Lolita’ as a memoir about a toxic, exploitative relationship between a high school English teacher and his student, and it is about that—but it’s about that in the way Walden is about a pond.

by SolidSmack on August 4, 2020 at 6:48 pm
What do horror, romance, and desert island movies have in common? Not a lot, except the idea that at any time, people can get stranded in the wilderness. Or a cave in the middle of a storm.

Restitution: Lot 448, Christie's
by Unknown on July 30, 2020 at 2:46 pm
Early last November we wrote a blog post asking Christie's about an interesting polychrome painted 5th century BCE antefix in the form of a dancing maenad. It had been scheduled to come up for sale in their December 4, 2019 auction and I felt the artefact deserved a closer examination regarding its legitimacy on the ancient art market. For those who do not know, an anteflix is a decorative upright ornament, used by ancient builders along the […]

the persians and the mughals -- 8/4/20

Today's encore selection -- from The Anarchy by William Dalrymple. In 1739, the Persian (Iranian) leader Nader Shah invaded India, ruled by the Mughals (Moguls) since the 16th century. The results were devastating and permanently impaired the power of the Mughals: "On 29 March, a week after Nader Shah's forces had entered the Mughal capital, a newswriter for the Dutch VOC sent a report in which he described Nader Shah's bloody massacre of the […]
