A reimagining of the motion picture Dune hit screens in 2021 after much anticipation from fans of the book. With an all-star cast headed by the boyishly charming Timothée Chalamet and a goosebump-inducing score from the legendary film composer Hans Zimmer, the movie won various Oscars and garnered critical acclaim—the latest addition to the epic science fiction genre thrilled folks new to the story. The combination of fantastic cinematography, editing, visual effects, and the original motion picture soundtrack left a lasting impression and increased the enthusiasm surrounding the sequel. Dune depicts a hero's journey but also teaches us not to be too enamored with our heroes. There are plenty of fascinating characters in the Duniverse, from the protagonist Paul Atreides to the people helping and hurting him from scene to scene. So grab a glass of water (it's in short supply where we're going) and figure out who you most closely resemble in this harsh world by doing our Dune quiz.
Jake didn’t think he’d become a writer when he was growing up in southern Saskatchewan, Canada, but fate had another idea. After barely squeaking through grade 9 English, by the luck of the draw Jake found himself with the most inspiring literature instructor his small town had ever known, and grade 10 English changed his life! Suddenly, evenings once spent at the hockey rink were spent curled up on the couch with the best of Hemingway, Dickens, and John Grisham. A valedictorian address and English degree at the University of Regina later, Jake is proud to call Heywise his favorite place to pen informative quizzes about all his passion projects. If you’re reading a post and pick up a hint of classic English literature, you’re probably reading something by Jake - especially if you come away feeling like a slightly better person for it.
"Dune," written by Frank Herbert, was published in 1965. The novel went on to become the best-selling science fiction book in history. Why is it so popular, and what are some of its themes? Well, it is escapist fantasy fiction, for starters. When Dune was released, Star Trek and Star Wars didn't even exist yet. The grand space opera was still a germinating seed in George Lucas's mind. Anticolonial movements were well underway, so the concepts of empire and exploitation were topical. Then there are the various nods to religion. There's Arabic vocabulary in the Fremen language and talk of jihad, and the holy book is called the "Orange Catholic Bible." Because "Dune" is set in the distant future, familiar elements and religious syncretism exist. Thematically, the books are about how politics and religion intersect, how tech can encroach on our lives, and the material impact we have on our natural environment.
