American Life In Poetry
posted at 7:17 PM

Poetry for the Rest of Us...
Fifty years ago, schoolchildren memorized Emily Dickinson and the taffy-sweet quatrains of Marlowe and Burns and Lovelace. Poetry was easy and portable popular entertainment, the iPod of literacy.

Whatever happened to poetry, anyway?

Sharp Sand: Dear Students... good advice for all... not just college folks...

About the emails. When you are asking someone to A) consider that they have made a mistake, or B) grant you a favor for some particular reason, it is best to be civil...

Of course, I will be happy to consider possible errors in grading, even if they are subjective in nature, but you will have to make your case on intellectual grounds, not emotional. It may surprise you to know that I would prefer a gradeless system, but I suspect that most of you, like the university & like our society at large, would find that unacceptable...

Art of Anamorphosis
posted at 9:36 AM

Anamorphosis...
Technically, 'the illusional art of anamorphosis, [is] a method of visual distortion whereby an image is presented in a confused or hidden form. When looked at from a different angle or in a curved mirror, the distorted image appears in normal proportions.'

To read poetry is to enjoy a mimetic gesticulation towards the thought process, to demand from it alternatives to ordinary remembering and comprehension. In this elusive, decorous and ceremonial absence of significant reportage, history is a minor character in a timeless masque enacted in the evolving theater of language. ... nick piombino "writing and remembering"
