Les 17 meilleurs livres du monde, selon Ernest Hemingway

Dans cet article intitulé Remembering Shooting-Flying: A Key West Letter, l’auteur livre une liste de 17 chefs-d’œuvres qu’il préfererait « relire pour la première fois (…) que d’avoir un revenu fixe d’un million de dollars par an. » Voici la fameuse liste de ces livres – où se cotoient beaucoup de russes, et quelques français - qui pour Hemingway, valaient plus que des millions : C'est à 40 ans que j'ai réalisé que vieillir était la plus belle chose qui puisse m'arriver.

Slaver! Invader! The tour guide who tells the ugly truth about museum portraits

She had answered a call-out from Antiuniversity, a project that helps organise radical educational events, and wanted to try out an idea. Her plan was to take people through museums, looking at the ways colonialism continues to influence their displays and the aesthetics of art, and examine the role of empire in funding the spaces themselves. She didn’t think they’d be popular – but they sold out.

As with all historic tipping points, it seems inevitable in retrospect: Of course it was the young people, the actual victims of the slaughter, who have finally begun to turn the tide against guns in this country. Kids don’t have money and can’t vote, and until now burying a few dozen a year has apparently been a price that lots of Americans were willing to pay to hold onto the props of their pathetic role-playing fantasies.

But they forgot what adults always forget: that our children grow up, and remember everything, and forgive nothing. Those kids have suddenly understood how little their lives were ever worth to the people in power. Agnès Varda, cinéaste géniale mais tellement sous-estimée. Call Me by Your Name: inside the film’s beguiling sets. If there’s an air of timeless sophistication about Luca Guadagnino’s swooning coming-of-age romance, Call Me by Your Name, it surely stems from the grand 17th-century mansion where the majority of the story unfolds. The film is both a faithful adaptation of André Aciman’s 2007 novel and a personal love letter to the Lombardian countryside where the Italian filmmaker lives.

It was Guadagnino’s intimate knowledge of the region that led him to Villa Albergoni in Moscazzano near Crema, which he tasked his close friend and frequent collaborator Violante Visconti di Modrone with dressing for the film. What direction did Luca give you with regards to the set design? Inside Darebin Council's Trans And Gender Diverse Swim Night.

Systemic Racism And Air Pollution Create A Dangerous Reality For Black People.

Women better represented in Victorian novels than modern, finds study. Women in novels have tended to “feel”, while men “get”; women smile or laugh, while men grin or chuckle. An analysis of more than 100,000 novels spanning more than 200 years shows how gendered even seemingly innocuous words can be – as well as revealing an unexpected decline in the proportion of female novelists from the mid-19th to the mid-20th century. Academics from the universities of Illinois and California at Berkeley used an algorithm to examine 104,000 works of fiction dating from 1780 to 2007, drawn mostly from HathiTrust Digital Library. The algorithm identified both author and character genders. The academics expected to see an increase in the prominence of female characters in literature across the two centuries.

When the Harvey Weinstein story broke, I thought of something my mother told me when I was a little girl. She said: To be a free woman, you have to be a financially independent woman.

A Netflix Movie Doesn’t Need To Be Good — It Just Needs To Be There. My great-great-aunt was a terrorist: women’s politics went beyond the vote.

My great-great-aunt was a terrorist. I’m not talking about the sense in which the pacifist Mahatma Gandhi was branded a terrorist by the British parliament in 1932: Pritilata Waddedar was an active participant in armed struggle against the British state. She supplied explosives. She fired a gun. And I’m proud of it. As Tuesday marks 100 years since some British women were given the right to vote, now is the time to consider the impact of imperialism on women’s suffrage, and the crucial role played by women in anticolonial movements. The Representation of the People Act 1918, which granted voting rights to property-owning women over 30, is more often than not depicted as a “reward” for women’s contributions during the first world war.

In July 2016 the bigoted troll Milo Yiannopoulos, a British darling of the American far right, was banned from Twitter after encouraging a torrent of racist abuse at Leslie Jones, a black actor who starred in the remake of Ghostbusters. In one example he branded her “barely literate”. A few months later it emerged that Threshold Editions, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, had given Yiannopoulos, 33, who calls feminism “cancer” and Donald Trump “Daddy”, a $255,000 book deal.
