Linden Endowment for the Arts: Rose Borchovski's 'The Arrival' at LEA 23

Linden Endowment for the Arts: Rose Borchovski's 'The Arrival' at LEA 23 | Intro to Literature | Scoop.it
Deanya Lattimore Schempp's insight:

Rose Borchovski started a series of children's books when her daughter was young, but then she took a left turn at Christian mythos and now uses her doll-like characters to tell "everyman" kinds of stories that are really, well, rather sad.  But very very human.  And she's a master storyteller using the medium of a virtual world.  Always worth many many visits.

Pride and Prejudice at 200: is it time for a video game?

Pride and Prejudice at 200: is it time for a video game? | Intro to Literature | Scoop.it
Keith Stuart: Jane Austen's novel is effectively all about systems and subterfuge; so we're halfway there already

Via The Digital Rocking Chair
Deanya Lattimore Schempp's insight:

Well, people are already playing these kinds of immersive world games in Second Life, and people are already studying the effects of "levelling up" social relationships within world games like Second Life.  This writer might want to check out 1920s Berlin in SL or the new Russian historical sim, or one of the many French courts in which one may learn and practice courtly manners.

And besides, Red Dwarf already had "Pride and Prejudice Land" in 1997, and Kryten was able to win the game with a bulldozer...

Strange to tell Joseph Campbell's Hero With A Thousand Faces with Lego characters but it flies by faster chan Campbell.
Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, January 7, 2013 8:55 PM

Could this 65 slide deck have saved me plowing through Joseph Campbell's Hero With A Thosand Faces? Not really, but its fun and flies by providing ADD insight into the basis of all stories.
