Meyerhold y la biomecánica. Vsiévolod Cemílievich Meyerhold (1874-1940), innovador director teatral ruso de las décadas de 1920 y 1930, cuyo trabajo inspiró a muchos artistas y directores de cine de su época. Nació en Penza, Rusia. A partir de 1932, cuando el régimen estalinista insistió en implantar un programa basado en las ideas artísticas del realismo socialista, con el cual dio fin a toda forma de innovación vanguardista Meyerhold se vió incapaz de adaptarse a las nuevas directrices y fue continuamente atacado. En 1936 perdió su teatro y cuatro años más tarde, tras meses de prisión y tortura, fue ejecutado en secreto por la policía política soviética.

La melancolía en la literatura

La melancolía es un sentimiento difuso que no llega a ser dolor, ni tampoco alegría, es un híbrido entre el llanto y la risa y la protagonista en millones de relatos, poemas y novelas. En este artículo la buscaremos en algunos autores, intentaremos acercarnos a ella a través de obras que han marcado la historia de la literatura universal. Melancolía, tele y literatura Hace unos días me preguntaba por qué razón en la tele pasan tantas series de época: “Toledo”, “Águila Roja”, “Hispania”, “etc”. La respuesta es el éxito, porque todo lo que perdura más de una temporada en la televisión le debe su permanencia a este factor. Sin embargo, cabe preguntarse ¿por qué tienen tanto éxito, incluso más que otras series ambientadas en nuestros días?

Ambiguous Sentences

Even More Meanings The ambiguous headline took me back to my college days, when a professor shared this sentence: I saw a man on a hill with a telescope.
