So, this is the first time I am back after a needed break due to several reasons, personal and professional ones, starting new projects, a fair bit of travelling which included Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeuro, Amsterdam, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore, having met some amazing people along the way … big thanks.
To be honest, feeling motivated, very grateful and ready to start a new chapter, like in a new book, the book of my life. Talking about books have read so many fascinating pieces and papers (researchers), I may write a review, or not.
Well, it is about time to turn the page, and yet, where to head now? Taking a day at a time seems the way to go.
To start with, very much would like to share with you, dear reader, something I read last month however I found it so interesting, revealing, controversial that I realised I should the following link>
It is about storytelling, books and plots based on a research from the Project Gutenberg ( a volunteer effort to digitize and archive cultural works, to “encourage the creation and distribution of eBooks”. It was founded in 1971 by Michael S. Hart and is the oldest digital library).
The document states that the most popular stories have been found to follow the ‘fall-rise-fall’ and ‘rise-fall’ arcs.
And these 06 arcs are:
WHAT ARE THE SIX ARCS?
Fall-rise-fall: ‘Oedipus Rex’, ‘The Wonder Book of Bible Stories’, ‘A Hero of Our Time’ and ‘The Serpent River’.
Rise-fall: ‘Stories from Hans Andersen’, ‘The Rome Express’, ‘How to Read Human Nature’ and ‘The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali’.
Fall-rise: ‘The Magic of Oz’, ‘Teddy Bears’, ‘The Autobiography of St. Ignatius’ and ‘Typhoon’.
Steady fall: ‘Romeo and Juliet’, ‘The House of the Vampire’, ‘Savrola’ and ‘The Dance’.
Steady rise: ‘Alice’s Adventures Underground’, ‘Dream’, ‘The Ballad of Reading Gaol’ and ‘The Human Comedy’.
Rise-fall-rise: ‘Cinderella’, ‘A Christmas Carol’, ‘Sophist’ and ‘The Consolation of Philosophy’.
