This reflective fad foreshadows some of the tensions current between nature poetry, ecological poetry, and ecological issues. And these tensions are linked to the perceived problems of contemporary experimental American poetry itself that is, that it is somehow out of touch, cloistered, urban, interior. As Jonathan Skinner says in the introduction to his new literary journal, Ecopoetics, walks do not make it into the closed environments of today s best poetry. However, Juliana Spahr has pointed out in recent readings and essays that such poetry, the poetry of walks, smacks of old-fashioned Nature poetry, a poetry that, says Spahr, doesn t include the bulldozer along with the bird. But then there s the other extreme, a poetry that too obviously delineates the battles between bulldozer and bird, and expects deep yet instant change in human actions toward the environment, while making no deep and intrinsic change within its own poetical structure. Ecopoetics showcases a more experimental ...

Some 20th-century literary theorists, relying less on the opposition of prose and poetry, focused on the poet as simply one who creates using language, and poetry as what the poet creates.[28] The underlying concept of the poet as creator is not uncommon, and some modernist poets essentially do not distinguish between the creation of a poem with words, and creative acts in other media. Yet other modernists challenge the very attempt to define poetry as misguided.[29] The rejection of traditional forms and structures for poetry that began in the first half of the 20th century coincided with a questioning of the purpose and meaning of traditional definitions of poetry and of distinctions between poetry and prose, particularly given examples of poetic prose and prosaic poetry. Numerous modernist poets have written in non-traditional forms or in what traditionally would have been considered prose, although their writing was generally infused with poetic diction and often with rhythm and tone ...
The poetry produced by the British poets of the 17th and 18th centuries is considered to be among the best ever written. But many general readers feel intimidated by the language or structure of the poetry, and so tend to shy away from enjoying these poets and their works. Nelson takes readers on a tour of the major works and figures of 17th- and 18th-century British poetry, explaining major themes, devices, styles, language, rhythm, sound, tone, imagery, form, and meaning. Beginning each chapter with a sketch of the poets life and career, the author then looks at five or six representative works, helping readers understand and appreciate the beauty of poetry itself.From Donne and Jonson, to Pope, Swift, and Burns, the book offers excerpts of the poetry these artists crafted, and carefully examines the various attributes that have helped to establish them as some of the greatest of all time. Writing in clear, accessible language, Nelson also introduces general poetry terms to the novice, providing
This is a deeply tragic cultural illiteracy. Being unable to dwell in poetry means you are unable to dwell in the world of the Bible because so much of the Bible is poetry.. Obviously there are poems that make up the Psalms, but poems also are scattered throughout almost every book of the Bible in one way or another. The prophets are almost entirely written in poetic form and some of the deepest theology in the New Testament is created employing forms of parallelism in the Greek text that dwell on the rich heritage of Hebrew Poetry (look at Philippians 2 for example). Jesus himself used poetry more than any other source to frame and define his action to the Jewish world he inhabited.. Understanding biblical poetry is essential to understanding the Bible as a whole.. I have had difficulty learning how to read poetry in the Bible. For many years I struggled. Biblical poetry doesnt rhyme. It doesnt have meter. Even after I learned the original languages of the Bible I found it difficult.. The ...
McGrath: One is the kind of poetry that might be called tactical, about some immediate thing: a strike, lets say; some immediate event. The poet should give it as much clarity and strength as he can give it without falling into political slogans, clichés and so on. I also thought we needed another kind of poetry that is not keyed necessarily to immediate events, a poetry in which the writer trusts himself enough to write about whatever comes along, with the assumption that what he is doing will be, in the long run, useful, consciousness raising or enriching. A strategic poetry, lets say. There have been a lot of tactical poems directed to particular things, and those poems now are good in a certain sort of way, but the events they were about have moved out from under them, Somebody asked Engels, What happened to all the revolutionary poetry of 1848? He replied: It died with the political prejudices of the time. That is bound to be the fate of a lot of tactical poetry. But thats O.K. If ...
In the maiden voyage of this column, Poetry for the Nervous, Vol 1, I led with the principle that what you love, what strikes you, what moves you in poetry is what matters. Critics do not matter. The judgments of others do not matter. Poetry is yours to dispose as your heart dictates. If your teachers or friends impose upon you some poem or poet they champion, and you just dont get it, there is no need to think yourself stupid or inadequate, nor to give up on poetry as a whole. You will find what you love eventually, because poetry in its essence is as deep within us as our desire to communicate.. From an appeal towards what you love, Ill work into something a bit less romantic. I think the best poetry is also useful. Thats a dangerous word in the world of art, wrapped up as it is in the most ancient debates about aesthetics and utility, but Im always ready to argue that gallery art is great, but does it really beat, say, a well crafted chair that is beautiful to behold, and is also very ...

By Linda Machinga. Township Productions will host the Session Five Bi-monthly Poetry Project on 9 October at Goethe Institut Namibia, under the theme A voice from my thoughts -feeling the Word.. The session will kick off at 19:30 and will challenge poets to share their thoughts and give strength to the word be it spoken or written..

He will also explore networking possibilities between Namibia and Cameroon especially with regard to publishing and translations ...
Poetry is a vocal, which is to say a bodily, art, Robert Pinsky declares in The Sounds of Poetry. The medium of poetry is the human body: the column of air inside the chest, shaped into signifying sounds in the larynx and the mouth. In this sense, poetry is as physical or bodily an art as dancing. In this book, the former poet laureate explains how poets use the technology of poetry (its sounds) to create works of art that are performed in us when we read them aloud.. ...
1) Why poetry?. Language has always been a complicated arena for me as an immigrant. I remember very clearly the first time someone tried to standardize my use of English. I was very young, and as an adult writer today, I use multilingualism to push standard US English to the point of breaking. For me, poetry is the best way to do that.. 2) Do you feel like poetry is more or less important & relevant today?. Compared to what? To me, the occasional declaration that poetry is dead or irrelevant or has always seemed to be irrelevant clickbait. Anti-intellectual tendencies in USAmerican society are disappointing since poets have a much higher status as artists, public intellectuals, and cultural critics in other countries. I think poets and other artists have a responsibility to critique and be critical of the status quo, especially since we reside in the center of the Death Star. We are rewarded more for going along with the mainstream, for writing poetry that does not find a way to challenge. For ...

Introduction. Love is an effective/powerful subject for poetry. Compare two poems that you have found to be effective/powerful and comment on how the poets have achieved their effects. The two poems I have chosen to analyse are Fist Love and Ballad both poems are examples of pre-19th century love poetry. Love poetry is timeless, as love itself does not change over the ages. So, this type of poetry is just as relevant now as it was when it was written. Love has been the focus of poetry for many years mainly because it is a feeling which is common to everyone. The Greeks arranged Love into four different categories; Storge: The liking of an object, Eros: Physical attraction, Philia/Philos: Brotherly love and Agape: Un-conditional love. The two poems I have chosen to analyse, First Love and Ballad demonstrate the love the Greeks named Eros both convey imagery of love based on physical attraction. John Clare the poet of the poem First Love grew up in extreme poverty, and was working on ...
Over the last two centuries, Ireland has produced some of the worlds most outstanding and best-loved poets, from Thomas Moore to W. B. Yeats to Seamus Heaney. This introduction not only provides an essential overview of the history and development of poetry in Ireland, but also offers new approaches to aspects of the field. Justin Quinn argues that the language issues of Irish poetry have been misconceived and re-examines the divide between Gaelic and Anglophone poetry. Quinn suggests an alternative to both nationalist and revisionist interpretations and fundamentally challenges existing ideas of Irish poetry. This lucid book offers a rich contextual background against which to read the individual works, and pays close attention to the major poems and poets. Readers and students of Irish poetry will learn much from Quinns sharp and critically acute account. ...
The author of nearly 20 books of poetry and poetics, Finch was educated at Yale and Stanford universities. She was named as director of the Stonecoast MFA Program at the University of Southern Maine in Portland nine years ago.. Finch sees a strong resurgence in the interest in poetry. Poetry is really on its way back, she noted. The pendulum is swinging back.. With new technology and social media, such as YouTube and the evolution of new forms such as rap, more people are listening to poetry again, she said. Finch pointed out that April is National Poetry Month and her other book, A Poets Craft, released last year, grew directly out of my teaching at Stonecoast.. Finchs latest book, Spells, is putting my own ideas into action, she said. The book was formally launched in March at the Association of Writers and Writing Programs annual conference and book fair in Boston and was received really well, the poet said. The book was completely sold out, including her own personal ...
If poetry is everywhere; it just needs editing, as the late, great James Tate once asserted, then well never run low on good fodder for verse. What we do risk losing, from time to time, is our appreciation and respect for the eternal, alchemical art of writing poems in the first place.. Thankfully, the Amherst Poetry Festival and Emily Dickinson Poetry Marathon are going strong, and their return this year brings new events as well, including a heartfelt tribute to Tate - who passed away last summer - and something called Poemkémon, which we think involves running around catching stray poems (gotta read em all!) Also very cool this year: the first-ever Emily Dickinson Poetry Slam, hosted by Northampton Poetry and featuring four of the best slam teams in the Northeast. Winners go home with cash prizes and baked goods based on Emily Dickinsons recipes.. Whether you want to challenge yourself at the one-day reading of all 1,789 of Dickinsons poems, try out an outdoor open mic at night, do a ...

Hippocrates NHS Award winners, commended poets and judges. Hippocrates Prize. Judge Jo Shapcott said: The Hippocrates Prize, since its inception in 2009, has quickly established itself as one of the most important international prizes for poetry as well as providing a unique place for poetry and medicine to meet. Its international reach is reflected in this years prizewinners who come from countries all round the globe, including New Zealand, the USA, Ireland, and Israel. She added: You might imagine that poetry on medical themes would be sad, even grim reading, but far from it. There was a lively range of subjects and perspectives in this years batch, and the judges were lucky enough to be debating the merits of some outstanding poems which have in common their sheer brio, skill, and passion, and often an exhilarating deftness in deploying medical language so that it sings.. Judge Roger Highfield commented The Hippocrates Prize for Poetry and Medicine works brilliantly because medicine is ...

By Dan Hoeweler. This article makes multiple false and misleading assumptions, one of which is the claim that people suffering from Schizophrenia and psychotic disorders are incapable of producing quality poetry due to the nature of their illness. I am a Certified Peer Specialist that suffers from Schizoaffective disorder and have written poetry that has been published in multiple magazines, psychology websites and street papers. If Dr Rothenbergs were correct in this highly prejudiced and inaccurate article then this would have never been the case. The author is selectively using examples of people writing poetry under psychotic duress in an attempt to prove his false claim. While it may be impossible to produce sensible poetry during a psychotic episode, there are times when a patient is lucid and able to rationalize their thoughts and ideas. During these times it is possible to produce poetry based upon the psychotic thought process. In fact I personally have found it therapeutic to do so, ...

Conveying emotions in spoken poetry may be based on a poems semantic content and/or on emotional prosody, i.e., on acoustic features above single speech sounds. However, hypotheses of more direct sound-emotion relations in poetry, such as those based on the frequency of occurrence of certain phonemes, have not withstood empirical (re)testing. Therefore, we investigated sound-emotion associations based on prosodic features as a potential alternative route for the, at least partially, non-semantic expression and perception of emotions in poetry. We first conducted a pre-study designed to validate relevant parameters of joy- and sadness-supporting prosody in the recitation, i.e. acoustic production, of poetry. The parameters obtained thereof guided the experimental modification of recordings of German joyful and sad poems such that for each poem, three prosodic variants were constructed: one with a joy-supporting prosody, one with a sadness-supporting prosody, and a neutral variant. In the ...

Although he is now renowned as a novelist, biographer and translator as well as a poet, D. M. Thomas wrote and published little else but poetry until he was forty, and has said that poetry has always been his first love. He has produced an impressive fifteen poetry collections, beginning with Two Voices in 1968, with his most recent being Mrs English and Other Women (2014). In addition he has published thirteen novels, of which the third, the highly acclaimed, Booker-shortlisted The White Hotel (1981), has been translated into over 30 languages. Thomass own translations of Russian poets including Pushkin and Akhmatova are themselves highly regarded, and his biography of Alexander Solzhenitsyn was awarded the Orwell Prize for political writing in 1999. He has also written a stage play, Hell Fire Corner (2004).. Thomass poetry is direct and often conversational in tone, touching on subjects close to home such as marriage, sex and death. One of the poems great strengths is in their conjuring ...
1) Why poetry?. Poetry lets us play with the salamanders hiding out in the humid dirt pockets under rocks. Its empathy and studied dissociation, both vigorously. It lets you see around the corners around which youre hiding from yourself. But you might be ten years younger, or you might be your grandmother. Running away from home before you learn how to speak. Imagining something else. I fall asleep in its yard, and wake up the mole on my back. It might be where we go when we die. Like glass in a crucible. Where language goes both to touch itself and hate its body, all at once. It is the only-childs sibling. Or language caught in puberty: its emotions are absolute, but you can tell when it speaks its still trying to figure out what it feels. A hatchling chick gluing its egg back together before it can open its eyes. Poetry is never certain, so it is always alive - the stillborn child in the family tree. The opposable thumb of thought. Poetry is a kind of weather that makes you scratch your ...
Folk Coll 11 is Utah State Universitys cowboy poetry collection. The collection, originally created by a generation donation by the L. J. and Mary Skaggs Foundation, includes books gathered during a fieldwork project in the early 1980s to document cowboy poetry in the U.S. west (see Folk Coll 11f). From this important fieldwork project came the impetus for the first Cowboy Poetry Gathering held in January 1985 in Elko, Nevada. Since that time, each January, the Fife Folklore Archives staff take the collection and Access database (that details each book, poem, author, first line and key words), to the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering for offsite use. Through University purchases and generation donations from poets and collectors, this collection continues to grow. ...

She said: Daylight and Leaving the Floor are both poems relating to the last few days in hospital, as my father died. They are two poems from what has become a long (and continuing) sequence of our last moments as a family with him on a ward, in an Ayrshire hospital. Often, they return to single moments, images, visual memories that will stay with me always. The poems seem to gradually close in on our final moments together and so the hospital experience has taken on such a heightened significance in the memory ...

This is a list of Chinese poetry anthologies or collections, referring to those poetry anthologies which contain collections of poems written in Classical Chinese or Modern Chinese, and generally containing works by various authors, known or anonymous. In some cases, the anthologies are part of a lineage or tradition, building on the work of former collections. The classic collection was the Shijing (Book of Songs, or Odes), traditionally believed to have been chosen by Confucius out of thousands gathered by royal order. The idea that the selection was based upon moral order became a strong influence on later anthologies. Similarly, the number 300, or 305, became canonical. Chinese literary tradition has long tradition of continuity, demonstrated in poetry anthologies. This is a list of Chinese poetry anthologies. The list is variously sortable by clicking on the radio buttons (up-and-down arrows/triangles) in the column-headers. ...

Another poet I am featuring here is the Lithuanian poet, Sonata Paliulytė. Ive shyed away from this to date in the Vilnius and Užupis Letters and Dispatch because she is my camará (as in capoeira) and spouse, and nepotism runs rampant in these parts. Yet, it would be remiss and negligent to continue to avoid her poetry, especially since she just received the Salomėja Neris Prize for her last book of poems, and is also the translator of a Selected Poems of Emily Dickinson, and a Selected of the Welsh poet, Menna Elfyn, in addition to being Lamont Steptoes translator, and many other poets writing in English - Alissa Valles, Ilya Kaminsky, Michael Jennings, J.C. Todd, Tom Healey, Anne Sexton, Irena Praitis, George Szirtes, etc. The Salomėja Nėris Prize has little to do with the awardees poetry echoing Nėris style, but in Sonatas case they are both lyrical poets, and meter and rhyme are very central to both their prosodies, though Paliulytės poems are more monochromatic in their ...
Poetry That Heals. Download a printable transcript here.. Sarah McConnell: On December 14th 2012, 20 children and six adults were murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary School. President Barack Obama struggled to make sense of the event in a public address shortly after.. President Obama: This evening Michelle and I will do what I know every parent in America will do, which is hug our children a little tighter, and well tell them that we love them. And well remind each other how deeply we love one another. But, there are families in Connecticut who cannot do that tonight, and they need all of us right now.. Sarah McConnell: Seven years later Sandy Hook still haunts the public imagination. Henry Hart, the new poet laureate of Virginia, turns to poetry in response.. Henry Hart: Clouds inch over the school of tears. All paths curve toward the blackest carrion. Shadows frozen on classroom floors..

Siegfried Sassoon, ...
Second, it makes no bloody difference whether Wagners music-drama poems qua poems are execrable or not as stand-alone poetry. Those poems were never intended to stand alone. The same could be said of the music for Wagners music-dramas and of the music-dramass poems as dramatic text. It could be said with a perfect assurance of not being in error that Wagner heard and saw those three elements (poem, music, and drama) simultaneously from the instant he began work on the music-dramas proper (as opposed to the writing of the prose drafts), no matter that he actually wrote text and music serially as he physically could not help but do. He began with the text first because its the armature about which the drama is constructed; the thing that supports and gives shape to the fully fleshed-out work. Thats just a matter of good and proper engineering practice in the creation of anything whatsoever. Its largely an unprofitable and even misleading exercise to pull apart that whose separate ...

What is the use or function of poetry nowadays? is a question not the less poignant for being defiantly asked by so many stupid people or apologetically answered by so many silly people. The function of poetry is religious invocation of the Muse; its use is the experience of mixed exaltation and horror that her presence excites…poetry, since it defies scientific analysis, must be rooted in some sort of magic…. Welsh poet Alun Lewis…wrote just before his death…of the single poetic theme of Life and Death the question of what survives of the beloved. Granted that there are many themes for the journalist of verse, yet for the poet, as Alun Lewis understood the word, there is no choice…Perfect faithfulness to the Theme affects the reader of a poem with a strange feeling, between delight and horror, of which the purely physical effect is that the hair literally stands on end…. The Theme, briefly, is…the birth, life, death and resurrection of the God of the Waxing Year; the central ...
204]] partly because they had taken firm foot in Indian soil, and partly because the great nobles made up to some extent for the lack of royal patronage. In the case of poetry, where self-expression yields better results without compliance with a patrons wishes or moods, the abolition of the court patronage and the weakening of the court tradition led to some welcome new developments. The greatest Persian poet of the period, Bedil, turned away from the polished love lyrics of the old court poets and concentrated on metaphysical poetry. Often his fancy ran riot. Many of his metaphors are quaint and far-fetched, and his meaning is frequently obscure, but he is unmatched for profundity of thought and originality of ideas and similes. He is highly popular in Afghanistan and Tajikistan, where his poetry appeals to the serious readers in the same way as does the great Masnavi of Rumi. He paved the way for Ghalib, who followed him in aiming at originality and depth of thought, but adopted the polished ...
Save your sanity through poetry? This may sound strange, but it works for me and my friends.. A friend, who is experiencing the late effects of polio, designed his own advanced college degree program. He called it Creating Wellness through Poetry. The act of writing out his feelings by focusing on God and His creation helped him achieve better mental health.. Another friend wrote a poem called Saved by a Gibson about a discarded guitar later found by a streetperson whose life was restored.. Saving sanity through poetry sounds like a motto from an old 1950s TV program. Nevertheless, I believe it has often saved me. Reading beautiful thoughts of another poet or jotting down my own, even during pain, helps me. Reading about someone else who had the same feelings helps me realize I am not alone.. Others may get this same release through a cherished hobby. Gardening is my husbands choice. Before anyone says, I cant do that anymore, let me hasten to assure you we all lose bits and pieces of ...

Watching a recent programme on Seamus Heaney I realised that I had been shutting out reading and writing poetry whilst I studied and that this was what was making me feel unsettled. His lyrical poetry is so powerful and beautiful and as the Nobel Prize acknowledged, he took the local and made it global. I have no right to put my name on the same page as his, but listening to his words has inspired me, finally, to start writing again so I present my latest poem following Heaneys Kite for Christopher and Michael ...

Cast off the shores of Normandy, the tiny isle of Guernsey lies isolated between the two European powers of England and France. Guernsey, however, has remained independent since 1204, and its government, the Bailiwick of Guernsey, comprises the inhabited islands of Guernsey, Alderney, Sark, Herm, Jethou, Brecqhou and Lihou. Rich in an abundant culture and history, Guernsey is well-known for its sea ports, mystic pagan rituals, potent cider, and poetry. While in political exile on the isle of Guernsey, Victor Hugo (1802-1885) wrote two pieces de resistance, Les Travailleurs de la Mer (Toilers of the Sea) and Les Misérables. He also stimulated a movement of local poets to write in Guernesiais, a mutation of medieval Norman-French and a traditionally unwritten tongue. Among these inspired poets was Georges Métivier (1790-1881), who discovered the folk poetry of Guernsey. He promises in his first book of poems, Rimes Guernesiaises, popular legends, proverbs, sayings, allusions to ancient ...
Where does Borges reside on the Latin American fiction map? He has often been called the father of the Latin American novel-certainly the new Latin American novel, as of the mid-20th century. I hate to use biological or patriarchal terms here, but he truly was such an amazing inventor, such an adventurer in the world of literature, that his ideas, his concepts, his way into literature really inspired many significant writers. He directly inspired [Gabriel] García Márquez and Carlos Fuentes, but even the generation before that. Whats interesting about him is that he really was first a poet, and always considered himself a poet. His approach to writing-no matter whether its fiction, poetry, essays-is, in some ways, poetry. Thats what makes the Latin American novel so special, so innovative: how it was dealing with language, renewing language, bringing in these obviously new genres like magical realism, of which Borges is a precursor.. What was your first encounter with Borgess work? Way ...
In his 1960 Nobel Prize acceptance speech, Saint-John Perse said that it is enough for the poet to be the guilty conscience of his time. Perse was a poet who ventured inward and he often described his journeys in terms of landscapes and broad histories, of the interior made exterior.
In Petty Theft, Nicholas Friedman cultivates the strangeness of daily life and turns an unsentimental eye to joy, catastrophe, and the myriad stations in between. The poems often set us wandering: to the busked streets of Assisi; to a burning circus tent in Hartford, Connecticut; to a stone circle in England; to the poets native Upstate New York; and to his adoptive California, where a wealthy neighbor lives behind a massive hedge, four-square/ like a curtain wall/ that keeps us here, him there. The theft of this collections title lurks on every page, luring faith to doubt, love to loss, and appearance to illusion. Yet these poems never lapse into hopelessness. Even where failure and tragedy precede human understanding, Petty Theft suggests the possibility of sustenance and recompense. Both confident and questioning, this debut collection announces Friedman as an important new voice in American poetry. Petty Theft is the eighteenth winner of the annual New Criterion Poetry Prize. The New ...
Off the page, it would be talking to someone whos had an experience with a poem after hearing me read it. I wish there was less of a barrier between the poet and the audience at a poetry reading. I wish we could talk about what poems actually mean to us, and how they help us live. Id love to just pass my poems around before a reading and ask people which ones theyd like to hear, even if their responses were based only on the titles. The visual artist Felix Gonzalez-Torres said that, For most of the work I do, I need the public to become responsible and activate the work. I think about that a lot. How can I do that with poems? I want to. I really believe that poetry can enrich peoples lives, especially today when consumer culture is constantly pushing us toward soundbites and the same ten words, toward instant gratification and not thinking or reflecting about our emotional and intellectual lives and whats actually happening in the world. Its the culture of emoticons. I hate emoticons. ...
Introduction. Dulce Et Decorum Est Colin Mcknight The poem ??Dulce Et Decorum Est? by Wilfred Owen describes a gas attack on a group of soldiers returning back to base during World War one. One man fails to fit his gas mask on time and suffers a slow and painful death due to the horrific effects of mustard gas. This essay will show how poetic techniques are used to make the description vivid and consider what effect this has on the reader. Owen is writing from personal experience as he fought in the war from 1915-1918. In the war, Owen suffered from shell shock. He also spent a period of time in a military hospital, where he met poet Siegfried Sassoon. It was Sassoon that encouraged Owen in his poetry. While at the war, Owen wrote until his unexpected and tragic death in 1918-one week before the war ended. Owen viewed the war as cruel and a waste of time and his poetry is full of bitterness. In the poem ?Dule Et Decorum Est?,Owen expresses his feelings about the war. The theme in ?Dule Et ...

I actually think Devonport got it wrong. Watching the Accenture on TV last week was, by the last round, reduced to watching a few shots squeezed in between advertisements. Whats better would be to engage in a friendly game of match play from time to time and leave the score cards with the starter. But when was the last time someone came up to you at your local course and asked do you want a match? Maybe in Scotland, but not in the U.S. Or am I wrong?. Matches of all kinds were certainly played at the Old Course in St. Andrews in the 1920s. And for some undetermined reason, The Royal and Ancient Golf Club recommended at that time with regard to such matches that all sympathetic handicapping should be discontinued. This advisory inspired a wily golf poet to respond with the following tale:. ...

Nobel Laureate (Economics), Gary S Becker and his co-worker Julio J Elias established a market price for a live donor kidney as a commodity.18 Assuming that an American earning a mean of $40 000 annually has a life valued at $3 million, faces a risk of death from nephrectomy of 1%, a decrease of 5% in quality of life, and will lose $7000 of income due to convalescence from surgery, they calculated a kidney purchase price of $45 000. Using a more probable death risk of one in 300 nephrectomies (the true reported risk is three in 10 000);19 reduces the kidney price to $20 000. Our current non-system promotes a kidney black market available only to the wealthy who bear the total expense for what may be inadequately screened, suboptimally matched organs inserted by unregulated (inferior?) surgeons. Becker and Eliass proposal would end advantages of wealth in organ acquisition since poorer individuals would obtain their kidneys via Medicaid or Medicare ...

… to: How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. I love thee to the depth and breadth and height My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight For the ends of being and ideal grace. I love thee to the level of every days Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light. I love thee freely, as men strive for right. I love thee purely, as they turn from praise. I love thee with the passion put to use In my old griefs, and with my childhoods faith. I love thee with a love I seemed to lose With my lost saints. I love thee with the breath, Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose, I shall but love thee better after death. Elizabeth Barrett Brownings sonnet How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. I love thee to the depth and breadth and height My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight For the ends of being and ideal grace. I love thee to the level of every days Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light. I love thee freely, as men strive for right. I love thee purely, as they turn from praise. I
What is it about schizophrenia that lends itself to creativity? One important aspect of the condition is what is diagnostically known as loosening of association. Words and concepts can combine in the speech and writing of schizophrenics in ways of association that are highly unusual. In refractory schizophrenics, these associations lead to word-salad type expressions that run counter to meaning. In some schizophrenics however, this unusual and loosened conceptual play can lead to quite successful creative outcomes. Writing, especially in mediums such as poetry, associations of words and concepts has to be loosened via an imaginary obfuscation which gives a pleasant unusualness. With the right vocabulary, this unusualness can lead to expression of beauty which are at the heart of poetry. Schizophrenics are in a perfect position to capitalise on this linguistic gymnastics, due to the above mentioned symptom - loosening of association ...

The first review of Heat Wake, from Publishers Weekly, is in…. read it here and below…. Zuzgas debut collection grows out of the intersection of myth and nature, like a simmering volcano of animal intensity that occasionally erupts in expressions that alternate between euphoria and lament. He establishes this strange amalgam from the opening lines of the first poem: All rocks are queer. By this I mean/ Im gay. In Love Poem, Zuzga recalls a melancholic youth in the dark shadow of an emerging queer identity (I was angry at myself for being a teenaged mermaid) and tinges of this same sadness appear at other moments in the collection. I may have exceeded the number of allowable/ falls-in-love, he sighs. Animals appear everywhere, including bats, sharks, hot deer, and an extinct Stellers Sea Cow that munches on sea lettuce the color/ of absinthe. Zuzga also meditates on the distinctions between human and nonhuman animal as scientists observe an array of marine life. In the title ...

3:AM: Let us speak about your birth in Russia and your status as a Lithuanian. Is this exiled beginning, in Barnaul, in Siberia, the beginning of your poetry, that is does your work somehow maintain an indelible relationship to the political reality of Lithuania, its proximity, its subjugation to Russia?. Eugenijus Ališanka: All stories have a beginning, but its not always possible to tell the story from the beginning. Sometimes it is even better to start from the middle or even from the end. Siberia is the beginning of my physical biography, while the beginning of my creative biography lies much further along, and it is not clear to me where exactly. Maybe it might be in my student years, when I studied mathematics and wrote my first poems. Maybe later, when I started to treat writing as something more than a hobby or spiritual practice only. And maybe later, much later, one might say today, when I have the feeling I am poisoned by words; when poetry became an object of hatred and love at the ...

Here is writing that is entirely open to the world, a poetry that generously refuses to delimit the human experience or accept only what is known. While it may be defined as asemic writing, such definition sterilizes what we have before us: a poetry that precedes language, a personally rhythmic grammar that plays among the tools of expression, and explores the outer boundaries of the rational as it searches for connection. In todays literary climate, Echolalia in Script is refreshingly, breathtakingly transcendent. ...

563). The symptoms of schizophrenia can be characterized into two different categories: positive and negative symptoms.Positive symptoms reflect an excess or distortion of normal functioning (Hockenbury & Hockenbury, 2011, p. 563). Positive symptoms add to the persons everyday life by way of hallucinations, delusions, and severely disorganized thought processes, speech, and behavior. Delusions are a false belief that continues despite overwhelming contradictory evidence.. Schizophrenic delusions are often far-fetched and nonsensical notions, not simply inaccurate beliefs. The person may believe that aliens are attempting to abduct them. This delusion would fall under the delusions of being controlled category.There are also delusions of persecution and delusions of reference. Some people have delusions of grandeur in which they believe they are extremely important, powerful, or wealthy.. Identifying with biblical characters is a common delusion of grandeur. A person suffering from these ...

On the part of the women who make such claims, the behavior is that of the cowardly bully. They hate men; but while it is hard for them to confront men who are actual abusers, many of whom are adroit at social manipulation, it is a lot easier to attack men who wish women well. It is similar to the foolish behavior of inner city blacks who attack white city liberals while having no guts to fight real racists in the countryside. The men who are most predisposed to seek womens well-being, they attack the most viciously. This drives away potential allies. It also makes the actual misogynists credible in society. If goodwill toward women gets rewarded with viciousness, ill will toward women becomes more credible. The victims of this are of course the women who are suffering enough already - women in right-wing, Muslim or inner city communities. Women act like jerks, and that makes credible to men - and many women - the claims that women are weak and stupid and should be robbed of their rights. ...
Piss Christ. There are more, but these are the extreme. A Minute of Silence isnt so much controversial as unexpected. Is it art if the artist breaks? I personally love that piece. The rest I do not agree with. I am not ashamed of bodily fluids; I am planning to be a nurse after all. But to use as mediums for art, I do not think works. It shocks. It gets people talking.. What about music? Is rap art? Is singing about hoes and bitches and using other vulgar and derogatory terms art? But on the other side of the coin, is it the artist or the music thats art when it comes to sex symbols like Ariana Grande?. I personally cant get into rap. Not because its bad, I think its a form of poetry set to music. As long as it has meaning to it. My hearing impairment keeps me from hearing the rhythm of rap. I always failed poetry in school.
