Brad Kronen Presents His Latest Book “The Epic Tale of Cupid & Psyche”

Hercules. Achilles. Perseus. Many today are familiar with these iconic heroes from ancient Greece due to such 21st century films as “Hercules”, “Troy”, and “Clash of the Titans”. But ask anyone in the present day if they are at all familiar with the epic tale of “Cupid & Psyche” and it’s practically a guarantee, most, if not all, will draw a total blank.

This is quite surprising when considering the epic action and adventure ancient love story of “Cupid & Psyche” that’s nearly all but forgotten in the present day was the most commonly known and well-loved ancient Greek myth throughout most of Western culture during the 16th through 19th centuries.

Nearly all but forgotten in the present day – until now.

Fritz Haber – Modernity’s Mutable Angel of Life and Death, Part II : Killing Millions

As Fritz Haber saw it, he was a German first and foremost, in particular, a Prussian. So when War broke out in the summer of 1914, Haber did what any good Prussian would do – the man devoted every waking minute to the War effort to ensure victory for the Fatherland.

This is reflected in the quote he is remembered most for saying:

“During Peace time a scientist belongs to the world, but during War time, he belongs to his country.”
– Fritz Haber

Many within his field could not have wholeheartedly disagreed more with Haber’s stance on Science’s role in times of War, such as his good friend Albert Einstein, who said on numerous occasions during both World Wars that his only allegiance was to being a Pacifist.

As the First World War raged more and more, so too did Haber’s zealotry for his country. Despite it being clearly obvious how much his patriotic drive was dividing him between long standing colleagues like Einstein and even his own spouse, Fritz Haber’s fervor for the Fatherland was undeterred.

Remembering Joe Green: The Life & Art of Giuseppe Verdi, Part II

The most well loved tenor aria of all time is from Verdi’s masterpiece “Rigoletto”. It’s the anthem song of the chauvinistic pig who (keeping things polite) is a tad too preoccupied with loving (followed by immediately leaving) the ladies and is sung by the character considered to be the Lord King Chauvinist of both Pig and Player alike, the Duke of Mantua.

Before the opera even made it to the stage, Verdi knew he had a major hit on his hands, if only for Act III’s opening aria, “La Donna e Mobile”. When Rigoletto made its debut in Venice, rehearsals were held in the tightest of secrecy for fear of the Duke’s aria being pirated. No matter. It’s been said the next day after the opera’s Venetian premiere, every gondolier could be heard throughout the city crooning the Duke’s ditty from the canals.
