Thursday’s Special: Red
This is not just another doll; this is Laura, one of the most notorious characters in Croatian literary realism (one of the two main protagonists in Ante Kovačić’s novel “U Registraturi”). Don’t be fooled by her sweet, innocent looks; behind the feminine and seductive exterior there is a heart of a ruthless murderer…. or this is at least how most readers of the novel (or spectators of the TV show from 1974) see her, but in all fairness, there is much more to her character, which is one of the most powerfully depicted feminists in the 19th century literature.
P.S. I was going to write a short analysis of the novel, but since there are no available translations of the work for you to read, it seemed unnecessary. Instead, please enjoy the unmatched musical score from the screen adaptation of the novel.
For this Thursday I chose the theme “red”. Some of you might think it is too easy and lacking imagination, but I like “colours” as a photo theme cause it gives opportunity to everyone to find something fitting. Please show me what red means to you: be it a redhead, a red cat, a red cap, or a red sunset or anything that comes to your mind and fits the description of “red”.
Next week the theme is “Cold”. More details on Scheduled Challenges page…
