Enigmatic faces of the Bayon Temple of Angkor Thom, Cambodia 2n Featured 6 Dec 2017 Print

Enigmatic faces of the Bayon Temple of Angkor Thom, Cambodia 2n

Angkor Thom, Cambodia - 21 January 2005
A triumph of Medieval Khmer culture, the treasures of Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom in Cambodia are incomparable. Angkor Thom (Great City) was the last and most enduring capital city of the Khmer empire. It was established in the late twelfth century by King Jayavarman VII. Many of its temples were submerged by tropical forest for centuries, and trees continue to shatter and pierce the ruins. The Bayon - seen here - is one of Angkor Thom's treasures, with vast displays of bas-relief faces - possibly of either the King or the Buddha - or perhaps both?

Irene - a play by Samuel Johnson Featured 6 Dec 2017 Print

Irene - a play by Samuel Johnson

Irene is a Neoclassical tragedy written between 1726 and 1749 by Samuel Johnson. Johnson's main source for the story of Irene was Richard Knolles's Generall Historie of the Turkes (1603). In Knolles's work, the Sultan Mahomet conquers Constantinople in 1453 and captures a Greek Christian named Irene. He decides to take her as his mistress, and while pursuing her romantically he ignores his duties as a monarch. Soon, the kingdom is falling apart from neglect and the subjects begin to riot, so Mahomet kills Irene to prove his dedication to his people (as depicted here). Date: circa 1730
