Only now read "Talking it Over": a masterpiece in every respect and intelligent game with the reader. Author sometimes reveals its backstage (splendid episode of Val). Taking into account the so-called. spirit of the age, should probably repeat for Hölderlin: "What use are poets in times of need..(Und wozu Dichter in durftiger Zeit?)". Nothing can replace the pleasure of on its own reading of the novel. I'm afraid that all adaptations are lost essential qualities of the original, such as the witty intertitles (eg De Consolatione pecuniae - beautiful!). Ps.1. In classical music the way it is, that when you begin to listen to its, it then everything else is a substitute inferior quality. PS.2. Interesting - in "Talking it Over" appears the title of another novel by JB "Love etc.", In "Staring at the Sun" - nothing to declare [Something to declare] /sorry for my broken English/.
You,European 'Michiko',came second!! What you discovered in 2015,the real Michiko Kakutani realised in 2001!! [www.nytimes.com/2001/02/09/arts/09BOOK.html Now,Terefere,the point is NOT which novels could be turned into movies or series,but whether the audience would like to watch the movies/series."Arthur and George" would be successful,but I would NOT say the same for 'England- England'. Look for example in these years Oscars: 'Boyhood','The Imitation Game'and 'Interstellar' could have done it much better,but the Academy had a different opinion?! But that's life!! ALEXANDRE DESPLAT finally(the 8th time!!!) won the Oscar for Best Original Score for'the GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL'. What could we say for Alexandre,except that he is really PHENOMENAL,and not only because he is HALF GREEK!! Because Angela Hewitt,he writes MUSIC and not simply play the piano!!!ΣΥΓΧΑΡΗΤΗΡΙΑ ALEXANDRE- ΣΟΥ ΕΥΧΟΜΑΣΤΕ 'ΑΛΛΑ 8 ΟΣΚΑΡ!!1 hollywood.greekreporter.com/2013/01/15/composer-alexander-desplat-talks-greece-and-argo-soundtrack/ www.youtube.com/watch?v=36oazKfQNsA Also Congratulations to another GREEK and another ALEXANDER!!( I know,that's why you named your son ALEXANDER...)
