play on a ‘physical’ feature of his. Barrie states in the novel that “X was
not his true name. To reveal who he really was would even at this date

animal was inspired by that of another literary character Y, from a
legendary 1851 novel.

Put Funda/Who is this myth about?
In Greek, the word pithos was actually a large jar used for storing wine, oil, grain
or ritually, as a container for the human body from which it was believed souls
escaped and returned.
The popular version of this myth has come down to us through a mistranslation
attributed to Erasmus from the 16th century. As a result, few of the major details
contradicted the original story which was about blessings, rather than evils and
chronicled Epimetheus rather than his wife.
This myth has translated to other cultures and religions most popularly as Eve
eating the apple – both a victim of their curiosity.

What was Marston’s creation?
William Moulton Marston, most famous for the inventor of an early prototype of the
polygraph test, is known to have incorporated his theme of diametrics (composed of
opposing extremes) into this character. She bore both archetypes of masculine and
feminine physical features.
Marton’s character epitomised is an early example of bondage themes that were entering
popular culture (as is suggestive of her costume and accessories) in the 1930s but wanted
to graft her image into someone who conquers by love, not violence. Like Marston, she has
indomitable mental powers which she can channel into physical abilities.
In all likeliness, she was meant to be a swinger just like her creator although publisher Max
Gaines was wary of depicting her as such. Since 2016, however, she has been declared as
canonically Bisexual.

What behavioural disorder is this?
Colette Dowling popularized the term in 1981 with her book of the same name
but already used by Agatha Christie in Hickory Dickory Dock.
It described a uniquely feminine condition in which women subconsciously fear
independence. leading to inappropriate or ineffectual behaviour on the job to
anxiety about success to the fear that independence will lead to loss of
femininity.
She based it on the idea of femininity portrayed in a story where a woman is
hardworking and kind but is marginalised by the females of her own society.
She is not capable of changing her situations with her own actions and therefore
must rely on an outside force.

What song/ place?
The folk song’s existence on record, began with Alan Lomax in 1933.
Although roots of the song date far back to 16th century England where
taverns often sported this name.
The song was named after a local establishment that was suggestively a
prostitution establishment or a gambling den operated by a woman named
Marianne LeSoliel (literally meaning _________ in French) Levant in this city
between 1808-22, when it burnt down.
How we know of it presently has to do with Vance Randolph’s theory referring
to the decorative use of the sunburst insignia on public establishments dating
to the time of Louis XIV (also known as the Sun King), which was brought to
North America by French immigrants in the 18th
century.

Name the band and the song (FITB).
The original title of the song was 'Honey Pie', and was heavily inspired by UK glam rock
of the time, particularly Wizzard's 'See My Baby Jive'.
Originally recorded in Swedish that won the Eurovision Song Contest in 1974, this song
chronicles a woman fighting a losing battle and eventually surrenders and falls in love
with her man. Essentially, he's her own personal ___________.
One could say, the band’s skilful usage of this now two century old event made for a
brilliant pop cultural reference. Surprisingly, France had rejected Belgium’s proposal to
commemorate the event in an €2 coin but had gladly embraced this song.
In fact it was so popular in France that the band recorded a French version which was
adapted by Claude-Michel Schönberg, who would later go on to co-write Les
Misérables. (Hugo based the story in the same year after the event in question)

Originally the song had been inspired in the autumn of 1973 after an

Notwithstanding the band’s obsession with JRR Tolkien, this song
was quite literally about a Misty Mountain Hop.

he mentioned that at the time the song was composed, none of the
band members had ever physically visited the place Amir Khusro

Identify the band and the song.
The song appears to be a somewhat fantastical biography of Rudolf Hess, Hitler's
Deputy Führer, who defected to the allied side and was arrested and detained at
this place. Alluded in the song is his POW number 31G-350125, that the band
shouts at the beginning of the song.
The band took the title inspiration after a David Bowie song at the time of Bowie's
visit to the place in 1973. Bowie’s song itself was based upon a recording of a
Polish folk choir Śląsk.
This place seems to bear a special significance to this band since this was their
original name. To avoid confusion with the London punk band of somewhat the
same name, they renamed themselves as X in early 1978 – a literal English
translation of the prostitution wing of a Nazi concentration camp
Freudenabteilung.

Martin Rowson is a comics artist famous for his adaptations of famous literary texts into
comic books and political cartooning. To this effect he has written and drawn Sterne’s
Tristram Shandy, Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels and even Marx’s Communist Manifesto.
However, one of his most notorious and popular works is an adaptation of an long
modernist poem that he recasts as Raymond Chandler-esque hard-boiled noir detective
mystery.
The book is controversial because after publishing the first edition with ample quotations
from the original poem in 1990, Rowson was forced to revise and rewrite his book after
the poet’s estate refused to let him use lines from the original for the U.K printing. He had
to rely his wit and ingenuity to convey the poem’s themes, tones, movements, and

This is a 1979 erotic historical drama that is infamous for being disavowed by almost
everyone who was involved in making it.
The writer Gore Vidal did it because of all the changes director Tinto Brass introduced to
the script to make it a “political satire”. The director did the same when the producer
introduced unsimulated sex scenes into the film that Brass has refused to film.
It thus became a hardcore pornographic film, starred in by the likes of Helen Mirren and
Peter O’Toole, that is also ironically enough the only feature film produced by the men's
magazine Penthouse.
The legacy of this film has also obscured a 1944 play by Albert Camus about the

In Greek, the word pithos was actually a large jar used for storing wine, oil, grain or ritually, as a container for the human body from which it was believed souls escaped and returned.

William Moulton Marston, most famous for the inventor of an early prototype of the polygraph test, is known to have incorporated his theme of diametrics (composed of opposing extremes) into this character. She bore both archetypes of masculine and feminine physical features. Marton’s character epitomised is an early example of bondage themes that were entering popular culture (as is suggestive of her costume and accessories) in the 1930s but wanted to graft her image into someone who conquers by love, not violence. Like Marston, she has indomitable mental powers which she can channel into physical abilities. In all likeliness, she was meant to be a swinger just like her creator although publisher Max Gaines was wary of depicting her as such.

However, one of his most notorious and popular works is an adaptation of an long modernist poem that he recasts as Raymond Chandler-esque hard-boiled noir detective mystery. The book is controversial because after publishing the first edition with ample quotations from the original poem in 1990, Rowson was forced to revise and rewrite his book after the poet’s estate refused to let him use lines from the original for the U.K printing. He had to rely his wit and ingenuity to convey the poem’s themes, tones, movements, and cultural environment by finding verbal substitutions.

This is a 1979 erotic historical drama that is infamous for being disavowed by almost everyone who was involved in making it. The writer Gore Vidal did it because of all the changes director Tinto Brass introduced to the script to make it a “political satire”. The director did the same when the producer introduced unsimulated sex scenes into the film that Brass has refused to film. It thus became a hardcore pornographic film, starred in by the likes of Helen Mirren and Peter O’Toole, that is also ironically enough the only feature film produced by the men's magazine Penthouse. The legacy of this film has also obscured a 1944 play by Albert Camus about the eponymous Roman emperor famed for his cruelty that is said to complete his "Cycle of the Absurd", with the novel The Stranger (1942) and the essay The Myth of Sisyphus (1942).
