Sabe o pacote que recebi outro dia e postei aqui Então, acabei deixando de dizer o que veio dentro 😉
Era este livro aí, uma edição trilíngue de um conto do Edgar Allan Poe. Trata-se de um corvo que visita, de forma misteriosa, um homem em uma noite. O conto, escrito em versos, é considerado de terror e o corvo é uma metáfora para algo mais....
Além da versão original do Poe, esta edição tem uma tradução em francês de Baudelaire e outras duas em português, uma de Machado de Assis e a outra de Fernando Pessoa. Só gente fraca né 🤣
É bem legal de perceber como a tradução não deixa de ser uma coautoria. Minha eterna admiração a todos os tradutores!

🔴"The Premature Burial" is a horror short story by American writer Edgar Allan Poe, published in 1844 in The Philadelphia Dollar Newspaper. Its main character expresses concern about beingburied alive. This fear was common in this period and Poe was taking advantage of the public interest.
💡Fear of burial alive was deeply rooted in Western culture in the nineteenth century, and Poe was taking advantage of the public's fascination with it. Hundreds of cases were reported in which doctors mistakenly pronounced people dead. In this period, coffins occasionally were equipped with emergency devices to allow the "corpse" to call for help, should he or she turn out to be still living. It was such a strong concern, Victorians even organized a Society for the Prevention of People Being Buried Alive. Belief in the vampire, an animated corpse that remains in its grave by day and emerges to prey on the living at night, has sometimes been attributed to premature burial. Folklorist Paul Barber has argued that the incidence of burial alive has been overestimated, and that the normal effects of decomposition are mistaken for signs of life. The story emphasizes this fascination by having the narrator state that truth can be more terrifying than fiction, then reciting actual cases in order to convince the reader to believe the main story.
➡The narrator in "The Premature Burial" is living a hollow life. He has avoided reality through his catalepsy but also through his fantasies, visions, and obsession with death. He does, however, reform—but only after his greatest fear has been realized.

Poe’s book cover re-work #edgarallanpoe #raven #blackcat #illustration #bookcover *i used photo reference for this one and I am not selling it, i don’t know who is the original photographer, if the photographer found this offensive I will take it off.
My thoughts on the current #nonaptransition as I find gradually more and more “boring”, or quiet (today’s choice is reading), activities to do in place of what once was fondly remembered as the glorious afternoon nap: I am super missing the quiet hour, the winey attitude that came with no naps makes my ears and head hurt, oh man I think I need that nap more than the kid does, gracious mercy please send me patience, ohhhhhh I would kill for a cup of caffeine and a fluffy pillow, I need to up my #creativeparenting super duper hard ASAP, my work is having trouble adjusting to stricter business hours to make up for that extra lost hour that was naptime, and I can’t stop yawwwwwwwwwwning. It’s 4pm and I’m officially in my pjs for the night.😴
I’ll just be over here adjusting to life with no naps at all as our new schedule. Brb world, this could take a few weeks. Things will get bumpy. It’s anyone’s guess as to who will cry first, but we’re allllllllll TIRED. 😳☕️📖🧟♀️

Gimme that below 2° so it can snow ☃
On a deeper note, I have recently been getting back into my poetry and this setting reminded me of Edgar Allan Poe's 'The Forest Reverie'. It has been at least two years since I last indulged in a good bit of poetry and it feels good to be reading outside of books and journals to fuel essays and reports for my degree.
If anyone has any recommendations for what I should read next, slide into my DM's or comment below 👌

Técnica mixta: Acuarela, Témpera y crayon
Animales de Borges
Este fue el último trabajo en tabloide, este formato también fue todo un reto en todo el trimestre.
Para este último tomé al animal inventado por Edgar Allan Poe del Manual de zoología fantastica de Jorge Luis Borges. Como era técnica mixta quise enfrentarme otra vez a la acuarela, un poco mejor la verdad (pero internamente todavía creo que pudo irme mejor ¬¬) No me rendiré todavía.
Igual disfruté mucho con este animal. -------------------------
Mixed media: Watercolor, Tempera and Crayon
Animals of Borges
This was the last work in the tabloid, this format was also a challenge throughout the quarter.
For the latter I took the animal invented by Edgar Allan Poe from the fantastic zoology handbook of Jorge Luis Borges. As it was mixed technique I wanted to face watercolor again, a little better the truth (but internally I still think it could go better ¬¬) I will not give up yet.
The same I enjoyed a lot with this animal.
