Elizabeth Sandifer

Elizabeth Sandifer created Eruditorum Press. She’s not really sure why she did that, and she apologizes for the inconvenience. She currently writes Last War in Albion, a history of the magical war between Alan Moore and Grant Morrison. She used to write TARDIS Eruditorum, a history of Britain told through the lens of a ropey sci-fi series. She also wrote Neoreaction a Basilisk, writes comics these days, and has ADHD so will probably just randomly write some other shit sooner or later. Support Elizabeth on Patreon.

    “The general question is outside the scope of this annotation, but recall that Hannibal’s aesthetic is Will Graham”.

    Will Graham who has the same urges as Hannibal, but manifests them in a different way, because he has a different set of principles built around them. An interesting interplay between sameness and difference.

    “In other words, he prefers the weird to the hauntological, in marked contrast to what he actually is”.

    In other words, we are, at least partly, not unlike Socrates’s Eros: we crave what we are not.

    Just wondering, since the EP search function is so badly non-functional, if there are any plans for a page gathering Phil’s miscellaneous posts. “The Proverbs of Hell”, the “Brief Treatise”, the “Trilogy Trilogy”, “Build High for Happiness”, “Doctor Who in 201X”, the old “Patreon Request” articles, the Rian Johnson one, the Sol review/commentary (and before it Worldburners), I’m sure there are many others – having them all gathered together in one place would be very nice.

      … the DW reviews, the GoT season five and six reviews, etc.

      I didn’t dare to articulate that before, but that would be truly great.

      (I suppose tagging the posts consistently would do the job as well).

      Dear god yes this please.

      That said, you may find that googling for “proverbs of hell site:www.eruditoriumpress.org” is helpful.

    Snogging Will was a hands-on demonstration of what she meant by “alternate means of influence” on Hannibal, since Will was too dense to understand words. Pushing him off the train was her giving up because he was too dense to understand the hands-on demo.

    IMO the scene mainly exists so that first time watchers can start expecting a mirroring scene where Will (nearly) snogs Hannibal then pushes him off something.

    “The first step in the development of taste” comes from the book Hannibal, referring to Starling.
