Kunst præger dig

kunst

Kunst og liv påvirker hinanden. Ikke bare i enkeltstående øjeblikke men igen og igen frem og tilbage. Den forholdsdynamik du vælger, er præget af den kunst du har læst og set. Tilsvarende er skabelsen af kunst og film og bøger også præget af det liv du lever. Ny kunst præger nye mennesker og disse nye menneskers liv præger den kommende kunst og så videre i en evighed.

Hvilken kunst er du præget af?

Contemporary Paganism, Utopian Reading Communities, and Sacred Nonmonogamy: The Religious Impact of Heinlein’s and Starhawk’s Fiction
Christine Hoff Kraemer

Abstract

Contemporary Paganism’s emphasis on sacred story and narrative has led to an interdependent relationship with popular media. Pagans draw inspiration from ction and also bring their practices to life in popular novels. Robert Heinlein’s 1961 Stranger in a Strange Land  has had a major impact on the practice of ethical nonmonogamy in the Pagan community, an impact that is reflected in Starhawk’s 1993 The Fifth Sacred Thing. Along with liturgical echoes from Stranger, Starhawk’s novel contains sacred sex practices similar to those Heinlein describes. Unlike Heinlein, however, Starhawk is writing from life; The Fifth Sacred Thing rejects the developing real-life norms of her San Francisco-based Pagan community. Both novels also follow the generic conventions of the American utopian novel, a literary form that has influenced communal and millennial movements of the past. Together, Heinlein and Starhawk’s novels demonstrate how fiction can inspire religious practice that then appears again in fiction.
