Lewis Carroll wrote extensively. Not only all the Alice books, Jabberwocky, The Hunting of the Snark, etc., but journals. Supposedly, Carroll wrote from his early twenties all the way until a year before his death in 1898. Four volumes are presumed to have been lost, but all surviving nine volumes were eventually published. Intriguingly, ten […]

Chekhov’s The Seagull or Stupid F*cking Bird

It’s described as Chekhov “with a lot more snark.” Stupid Fucking Bird, written by Aaron Posner and directed by Michael Michetti, is an “irreverent mix” of Chekhov’s The Seagull and an aspiring young director who rails against the art created by her mother’s generation and a nubile young actress wrestling with an aging Hollywood star for […]
