Spotted this on Garance Dore’s jam, and it’s great:
Olympia Le-Tan, most known for her book clutches, and filmmaker Spike Jonze collaborated on this video. It’s a fine example of stop-animation and features one of my favorite literary characters, Mina Harker from Bram Stoker’s Dracula and of course, Macbeth.
Check it out, well worth the time.
This is great. Shout out to Carson McCuller’s The Heart is a Lonely Hunterrrrrr!
THE LAKE ISLE OF INISFREE
I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,
And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made;
Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for the honey-bee,
And live alone in the bee-loud glade.
And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,
Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;
There midnight’s all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow,
And evening full of the linnet’s wings.
I will arise and go now, for always night and day
I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;
While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey,
I hear it in the deep heart’s core.
