My Art Adventure

Posted by on Sep 12, 2011

Tweet While normally I don’t write blog entries about myself, I feel inclined to share some experiences I’ve had recently that do link to the overall theme of this site. I was in Spain and France for a holiday, which was an experience in itself but there was a few cultural activities that were done Continue reading →

Truth: An Overview

Posted by on Jun 15, 2012

Tweet I wanted to do an overview of my first subject at university but I’m finding that very hard to do. The whole thing was on the concept of Truth and trying to understand how to think of things critically and determine what truth really is. My last post on the encyclopaedia was also a Continue reading →

The Significance of Naked Lunch

Posted by on Jun 14, 2013

Tweet Before I review William S. Burroughs seminal Naked Lunch I thought I would write about the historical significance of this extremely controversial novel. I know Adam from Roof Beam Reader did an interesting post on Burroughs but I just want to talk about why this one book is so important to literature. Naked Lunch was originally published by Continue reading →

The Seat of Emotion

Posted by on Sep 17, 2010

Tweet Nowadays, the source of emotion and passion is considered to be the heart; poetically referring to the soul and physically tied to the feeling of love (increased heart rate & increased blood flow). Reading Lady Chatterley’s Lover, I’ve noticed DH Lawrence using the loins and bowels as the seat of emotion and passion, which Continue reading →

The Third Person Effect

The Third Person Effect

My wife and I were raised in in religious homes, she was raised Catholic and I come from a Pentecostal background. This often leads to some interesting debating on theology. While we are both accepting of each other’s theological views, both seem to think we are right. In psychology this is known as the Third Person Effect. The hypothesis predicts that...

Understanding Satire

Understanding Satire

I was reading a review the other day, when I saw them say “being a satire, I expected it to be funny” which, at the time, really annoyed me: I wanted to become that guy who replies with “I don’t think you get it”. The truth of the matter is I was someone that thought satire was a form of comedy for a very long time too. I think it wasn’t until...

House of Leaves: An Art Piece

House of Leaves: An Art Piece

I picked up the book House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski as part of the Literary Exploration book club (check out my review) and while it is a weird postmodern novel, I think it is art more than literature. So I wanted to talk about my thoughts on this book as art. First of all Postmodern is a weird concept that I don’t fully understand; surrealism makes...

Question: What made you start studying again?

When I was in school I wasn’t interested in studying and I didn’t do well in school. I didn’t really have much interest in anything, except computers and music. It wasn’t until 2009 when I discovered my mind crush Craig Schuftan did I really start reading and wanting to learn. I started Knowledge Lost because I found my passion and I wanted to write what...

Introducing a New Blog

Introducing a New Blog

At the beginning of the month I launched my book blog. This wasn’t an easy decision but I found that I had so much I wanted to say about literature and I didn’t want to fill up this blog with just literary topics. Rest assured, there will still be some topics about literature on this blog, which will also be showing up on the other blog. But if you are...
