The Tales of Hoffmann was shown at the Rubin Museum as part of Jungian movie series during the display of Carl Jung’s Red Book. The recoloring by Technicolor makes the high handed intellectual construct of the movie version of the Opera story even more over the top. Lack of happiness, after all, can be the creative source.
Went to see William Blake exhibition with a engineer-turned-poet-turned-power house young media executive-turned-big time tech executive friend. Blake never traveled far from his home town. What happened to “万卷书，千里路”. Maybe all enlightenment and salvation is in our dreams? BTW, Morgan library did not do a good job with the Blake show. A disappointment.
Blake-Jung connection may only exist in my mind (and of course my dreams)
