Andrei Tarkovsky’s Stalker

159 words / 1:25:24

In the latest installment of Guide to Kulchur, Fróði Midjord and John Morgan discuss Andrei Tarkovsky’s Russian science fiction classic, Stalker, which is about three men living in an industrial wasteland who venture into a Zone that was left on Earth by mysterious extraterrestrials, a wilderness filled with deadly traps, at the center of which is a room that grants the innermost desires of anyone who enters.

He was one of the most celebrated pianist-composers of the early twentieth century. His work and writings reflect a worldview marked by both racial consciousness and an opposition to modernity that coexisted alongside radical artistic modernism.  Read more …

Préface éditoriale à TYR vol. 1

1,750 words

Le thème dominant dans la plus grande partie de l’art et de la littérature produits pendant la première moitié du XXe siècle fut l’aliénation. Les auteurs parlaient de l’« âge de l’angoisse ». Ils décriaient le règne matérialiste de la « quantité sur la qualité », l’absence de toute valeur spirituelle significative, la rupture des relations entre les sexes, la dévastation de l’environnement, la mécanisation et la spécialisation excessive de la vie urbaine, et l’impérialisme de la mono-culture collective, avec ses « valeurs » vulgaires du progrès et de l’efficacité.

Gudrun Brangwen, the Modern Woman

Gerald Crich is only one half of Lawrence’s portrait of the “modern individual.” The other half is Gudrun Brangwen. Of course, Birkin and Ursula are modern individuals, though in a different sense. The latter couple are both seeking some fulfilling way to live in, or in spite of, the modern world. Read more …

Interestingly, perhaps the clearest parallels to Gerald Crich’s philosophy of life, and Lawrence’s treatment of it, are two thinkers Lawrence knew nothing about when he wrote Women in Love: Oswald Spengler and Ernst Jünger, both of whom were strongly influenced by Nietzsche.

D. H. Lawrence’s greatest novel is also his most anti-modern. Written between April and October of 1916 in Cornwall, during some of the darkest days of the First World War, Women in Love was conceived as a sequel to The Rainbow. (Both novels were brilliantly filmed by Ken Russell.) Read more …
