EP13: Frankenstein

In this episode we examine the theme of power of nature through the literary sense of Mary Shelly's Frankenstein vs. Masaru Emoto's The Hidden Messages in Water.Considered by many to be the first Science Fiction novel, Mary Shelly's Frankenstein is the story of Dr. Victor Frankenstein, whose scientific ambitions drive him to invent a new species, but a lack of love and acceptance fuels his creation to commit murder.The power of nature is paradoxically a force of creation and destruction. Such a power deserves awe and reverence.  One ignores the magnitude of its duality at his or her own peril.

In this episode we discuss the following works of Dorothy Parker: Horsie, The Waltz and Mrs. Post Enlarges on Etiquette. All of us have an internal voice that at times we dare not share with the external world for fear of judgment or oppression. The genius of these two strong female writers is how brilliantly they rip the bandaid off and show the ugly truth about the truth.

In this episode we juxtapose the quest for power in The Prince by Niccolo Machivelli vs. Sun Tzu's The Art of War.  The Prince is a 16th Century treatise or perhaps more accurately political philosophy by Niccolo Machiavelli which has become synonymous with its cynical, win at all costs, view on power and those who hold it.

Patriotism. Sacrifice. Love. Duty. A country on the verge of war. A lifelong love of flying.  Her country needed her. She would serve, no matter what the cost. In this month’s episodes we will explore the theme of Female Perseverance in the face of danger or death using the books The Flight Girls vs. A Train in Winter. Does gender influence how you love and serve your country? Or how you approach a goal, or an obstacle? Who are you deep down? What are you made of during a country’s most dire of moments?  The women who served in World War Two are icons of Female Perseverance in the face of danger or death.
