American Poetics; Human Farming; America Lost

What Would Whitman say today?

English: Photo of American poet Walt Whitman h...

One sees it must indeed own the riches of the summer and winter, and need never be bankrupt while corn grows from the ground or the orchards drop apples or the bays contain fish or men beget children upon women.

Other states indicate themselves in their deputies  . . .  but the genius of the United States is not best or most in its executives or legislatures, nor in its ambassadors or authors or colleges or churches or parlors, nor even in its newspapers or inventors  . . .  but always most in the common people. Their manners speech dress friendships—the freshness and candor of their physiognomy—the picturesque looseness of their carriage  . . .  their deathless attachment to freedom—their aversion to anything indecorous or soft or mean—the practical acknowledgment of the citizens of one state by the citizens of all other states—the fierceness of their roused resentment—their Curiosity and welcome of novelty—their self-esteem and wonderful sympathy—their susceptibility to a slight—the air they have of persons who never knew how it felt to stand in the presence of superiors—the fluency of their speech their delight in music, the sure symptom of manly tenderness and native elegance of soul  . . .  their good temper and openhandedness— the terrible significance of their elections—the President’s taking off his hat to them not they to him—these too are unrhymed poetry. It awaits the gigantic and generous treatment worthy of it. -Excerpt from Preface to Leaves of Grass, first edition (1855) by Walt Whitman  2nd paragraph, line 6 – 3rd paragraph.

American Poetics: Segregated Group Think (S.G.T.)

Frightful to consider, consider it we must.  American Poetics with great enthusiasm generally embraces Segregated Group Think (S.G.T.); climbed into The Box and closed the lid behind it.  Real or perhaps only in perception is not important what is important is American Poetics used to occupy the stratosphere of socio-political economics, was an agent for thought not merely a vehicle for approved transmission.

Are there any American Poetic Heroes today that have not fallen into the trap of the Sham Fight: Capitalism vs. Communism, Left vs. Right, Conservative vs. Liberal, Black vs. White vs. Asian vs. Hispanic?   The Sham Fight is the means the Scoundrel Classes exert control so too is the Government Tit.   Do Government Grants and other sources of Government Direct and Indirect financial support influence American Poetics or is it the Super-Class Uncorrupted by The Government Tit?

Not to take a thing away from her however, the question needs to be asked; why is The Angry Black Woman celebrated far above and beyond The Angry Black Man or The Angry Native American, Hispanic, Asian, Arab, White Woman or Man?

American Poetics: Esoterically Yours

Have you ever wondered why American Poetics does not maintain a higher participation rate in the Socio-Political Economy, American Culture as a whole?  There is a Pseudo-intellectual snobbery built within the framework of American Poetics.  This is experienced on social media sites, discussion boards, chat rooms, blogs but what about in the classrooms across America?

Is poetry free for interpretation or is it shackled by mandated federal – state standards, curriculums, academics, conventional and Segregated Group Thinking.  Is academia free to introduce poetry or are they censored for fear of offending someone with a different social set.  Can students freely express themselves in their poetry without being expelled?

Remember the history of humanity.  Government Controlled Schools, Control Thought, Poetry Should in Theory, Set Humanity Free!

“Human Farming is made possible by the duplicity of Intellectuals, Artists and Priests; who were and are well paid to conceal this reality: Government Systems equal Livestock Management Models.

Hang the Hiccups! A Shaw Centre for The Arts and Literature Response to: Scoundrel Classes and Revolutions

leave a comment »

Reply to Scoundrel Classes and Revolutions posted by Harry Shaw, Director, The Shaw Centre for The Arts and Literature:

To understand Swinburne’s Revolution one need only look to Walt Whitman. Although, Swinburne’s, “Eve of Revolution” was more of an overt attack upon the corruption of the church and politics. The essential problem being is that Swinburne was trying in many ways to mimic Whitman’s humanism as expressed in much of what was European Socialism.

Swinburne read Whitman’s, Leaves of Grassextensively and was fan of Victor Hugo as well.

Like Whitman, Swinburne was looking to write a humanist bible of sorts.

He wasn’t really preaching a revolution of the masses but a revolution of thinking about the world…much like Whitman.

And it must Never be overlooked that Swinburne was responsible for a “revolution” in poetry meter in his lifetime. Whereas Whitman threw the conventions of meter out the window in Leaves of Grass and used blank verse almost exclusively, Swinburne, experimented with lesser used meters beyond iambic pentameter. Swinburne kept rhymed meter but changed it’s length in many of his poems.

A Prayer for My Daughter

BY WILLIAM BUTLER YEATS

 

Once more the storm is howling, and half hid

Under this cradle-hood and coverlid

My child sleeps on. There is no obstacle

But Gregory’s Wood and one bare hill

Whereby the haystack and roof-levelling wind,

Bred on the Atlantic, can be stayed;

And for an hour I have walked and prayed

Because of the great gloom that is in my mind.

 

I have walked and prayed for this young child an hour,

And heard the sea-wind scream upon the tower,

And under the arches of the bridge, and scream

In the elms above the flooded stream;

Imagining in excited reverie

That the future years had come

Dancing to a frenzied drum

Out of the murderous innocence of the sea.

 

May she be granted beauty, and yet not

Beauty to make a stranger’s eye distraught,

Or hers before a looking-glass; for such,

Being made beautiful overmuch,

Consider beauty a sufficient end,

Lose natural kindness, and maybe

The heart-revealing intimacy

That chooses right, and never find a friend.

 

Helen, being chosen, found life flat and dull,

And later had much trouble from a fool;

While that great Queen that rose out of the spray,

Being fatherless, could have her way,

Yet chose a bandy-leggèd smith for man.

It’s certain that fine women eat

A crazy salad with their meat

Whereby the Horn of Plenty is undone.

 

In courtesy I’d have her chiefly learned;

Hearts are not had as a gift, but hearts are earned

By those that are not entirely beautiful.

Yet many, that have played the fool

For beauty’s very self, has charm made wise;

And many a poor man that has roved,

Loved and thought himself beloved,

From a glad kindness cannot take his eyes.

 

May she become a flourishing hidden tree,

That all her thoughts may like the linnet be,

And have no business but dispensing round

Their magnanimities of sound;

Nor but in merriment begin a chase,

Nor but in merriment a quarrel.

Oh, may she live like some green laurel

Rooted in one dear perpetual place.

 

My mind, because the minds that I have loved,

The sort of beauty that I have approved,

Prosper but little, has dried up of late,

Yet knows that to be choked with hate

May well be of all evil chances chief.

If there’s no hatred in a mind

Assault and battery of the wind

Can never tear the linnet from the leaf.

 

An intellectual hatred is the worst,

So let her think opinions are accursed.

Have I not seen the loveliest woman born

Out of the mouth of Plenty’s horn,

Because of her opinionated mind

Barter that horn and every good

By quiet natures understood

For an old bellows full of angry wind?

 

Considering that, all hatred driven hence,

The soul recovers radical innocence

And learns at last that it is self-delighting,

Self-appeasing, self-affrighting,

And that its own sweet will is heaven’s will,

She can, though every face should scowl

And every windy quarter howl

Or every bellows burst, be happy still.

 

And may her bridegroom bring her to a house

Where all’s accustomed, ceremonious;

For arrogance and hatred are the wares

Peddled in the thoroughfares.

How but in custom and in ceremony

Are innocence and beauty born?

Ceremony’s a name for the rich horn,

And custom for the spreading laurel tree.

The Poetry Foundation: History and Mission:

POETRY FOUNDATION

The Poetry Foundation, publisher of Poetry magazine, is an independent literary organization committed to a vigorous presence for poetry in our culture. It exists to discover and celebrate the best poetry and to place it before the largest possible audience.

The Poetry Foundation works to raise poetry to a more visible and influential position in American culture. Rather than celebrating the status quo, the Foundation seeks to be a leader in shaping a receptive climate for poetry by developing new audiences, creating new avenues for delivery, and encouraging new kinds of poetry. In the long term, the Foundation aspires to alter the perception that poetry is a marginal art, and to make it directly relevant to the American public.

Established in 2003 upon receipt of a major gift from philanthropist Ruth Lilly, the Poetry Foundation evolved from the Modern Poetry Association, which was founded in 1941 to support the publication of Poetry magazine. The gift from Ruth Lilly has allowed the Poetry Foundation to expand and enhance the presence of poetry in America and has established an endowment that will fund Poetry magazine in perpetuity. ~MORE~

LAURA BUTLER NEWS CHANNEL: St. Patrick Smiling, Charles Swain Too…Laura Butler’s Technicolor Dreamscapes on New Irish Art

The Cottage Door

By Charles Swain

 

The starry silence falls

Along my sylvan way,

A spirit walks the earth,

We never meet by day;

And list’ning to the voice

Of years that are no more;

My feet–Oh! know’st thou why?

Have wandered to thy door.

 

The quiet taper burns

And makes thy casement bright,

And soft thy shadow falls

Between me and the light;

I gaze as on a shrine

My heart would bend before;

My couch had seen no rest,

Had I not seen thy door.

 

The Night, as if to breathe,

Her starry curtain parts;

The very air seems faint

With breath of lovers’ hearts:

Some spirit robes the earth

In light that heaven wore;

Or is that light thine own?—

And is that heaven thy door?

 

The Red Door, One-roomed Cottage, Cultra, County Down

 

‘The Red Door, One-roomed Cottage, Cultra, County Down.’ 8″ x 10″ oil and acrylic on canvas.

 

The story behind the painting:

 

Windows, doorways, gateways are all thresholds that I love to depict in my photographs and paintings but beside doorways and their purpose in linking two views, (two worlds), I also just love doors. I especially like old doors, whose character can be seen on their surfaces, years of peeling and faded paint, nail holes and scratches, hooks and crevices and key holes. In painting a door I try to catch the myriad reflections, shadows and colours, the glimpse of the grain under the paint and the faded and decaying sections.

 

My father came from a family of Painter and Decorators. They were craftsmen of their time and although he pursued an entirely different career, he never forgot those skills. I used to love watching him paint as a child and as I tried to ‘help’ he would teach me some aspects of the task like painting along the grain and smoothing and sanding down between the layers.

 

When I paint an old door in a painting I try to honour the people that lived in the home, or the farm workers who housed their stock behind the worn old doors of barns and of course the people who painted the doors over the years, successive generations caring for their home. When I paint a picture including a door I am paying homage to the past. -Laura Butlerhttp://www.NewIrishArt.com/LauraButler

‘Ballinderry Forge Cottage, Cultra, County Down.’ It is oil and acrylic on canvas, 8″ x 10.”

 

The story behind the painting:

 

I often visit the Ulster Folk Museum in Cultra, County Down, where a number of original vernacular buildings have been restored from dereliction and preserved. Somehow the curators have managed to capture the spirit of the homes and as someone who is drawn to places containing the presence of people, past and tradition I find the place a tranquil and almost spiritual place that is deeply respectful of the local people who once worked their living and raised their families under the roofs. Passing by this forge cottage, once the home of blacksmiths of many generations my eye was caught by the shaft of sunlight across the thatch and illuminating part of the doorway, especially the tiles just inside the porch. A sense of homeliness and warmth drew me to the scene which for me is redolent of summer days, childhood memories and of lives well-lived. -Laura Butlerhttp://www.NewIrishArt.com/LauraButler

K2 Global Communications Llc 2012 End-of-Year Report (Excerpt)

leave a comment »

…Excerpt from our WordPress 2012 Annual Report:

 

Some of your most popular posts were written before 2012. Your writing has staying power!
Consider writing about those topics again:

 
1. The Arts Music/Paint/Literature-Writers

 
2. Government Systems – Economics

 
3. Culture, Tourism, Culinary Arts

 

 And then there was this media research…

 

Writer Wordart

Writer Wordart (Photo credit: MarkGregory007)

 

Our Government System-Economics posts were mentioned in the MSM 1,033 times (combined broadcast, print, online). Of those mentions 96% were attacks from both the capitalists and communists.

 

This suggests to us that our assertion along with Great Thinkers, Historians, Poets and Authors Harry Shaw, Alan Keyes, C.S. Lewis, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, George Orwell, G.K. Chesterton, Hilaire Belloc, that both systems have found their logical conclusion in the establishment of the Globalist Elite Benevolent Corpo-Banker Government, which owns the attacking media, is absolutely Dead on…BULLSEYE!

Twelve Years Later…2012 Korea’s Royal Culinary Arts Festivals and Mainstream America

leave a comment »

“Late 90’s early 00’s we worked with Award Winning Culinary Arts Personality/Author Corinne Trang introducing America to Korea’s Royal Culinary Arts; taking it mainstream, dominating Media stories and Culinary Arts/Cultural Travel for Korea Tourism and Culture.” -Greg Kelly, Partner K2 Global Communications llc.

 

 

Essentials of Asian Cuisine: Fundamentals and Favorite Recipes © Corinne Trang Award Winning Culinary Arts Personality, Author

With eight major national cuisines, and dozens of regional variations, a comprehensive exploration of Asian cuisine might seem too daunting to present in one volume. But with “Essentials of Asian Cuisine: Fundamentals and Favorite Recipes, ” award-winning author Corinne Trang successfully brings the fundamentals of Asian cooking into the home kitchen in a collection that includes both contemporary and time-honored recipes.Trang takes the reader on a journey of Eastern culinary discovery as seen through a practiced Western culinary lens. Explaining how and why Chinese cuisine is at the root of all Asian cooking, she describes in familiar terms the techniques that incorporate the five senses and embody the Chinese “yin yang” philosophy of balanced opposites. Trang uses Asian ingredients commonly found in supermarkets and through mail-order sources — such as fish sauce, lemongrass, and rice noodles — to guide home cooks through the preparation of healthy, sensual meals. She illuminates the mysteries of authentic Asian cooking, explaining the aromatic herbs and spices that make Asian cuisine vibrant, colorful, and distinctive.

Trang brings together more than three hundred traditional and cutting-edge recipes for condiments, appetizers, main courses, vegetables, and sweets and drinks from China, Japan, Korea, and Southeast Asia. Mouthwatering items include Chinese Scallion Pancakes, Filipino Fried Spring Rolls, Spicy Indonesian Crab Fried Rice, Japanese Miso-Marinated Black Cod, Japanese Spring Water Tofu with Sweet Sake Sauce, Stir-Fried Leafy Greens, Chinese Pork Ribs with Black Bean and Garlic Sauce, Green Tea Ice Cream, and Thai Coffee.

In organizing the book by type of food, Trang allows cooks to see both the common elements and the distinctive individualities of Asian national and regional cooking. Trang explains the roots of major recipes and discusses where they appear in various guises in different countries. Vietnam’s “Canh Ca Chua” (Hot and Sour Fish Soup), for example, can also be found in Cambodian, Indonesian, and Thai cuisines; Trang provides the recipes for both the master soup and its variations.

Trang includes a comprehensive glossary of Asian ingredients, plus a detailed list of resources for purchasing special ingredients and equipment. She offers sample menus, including a Chinese Dim Sum, a Filipino Dinner, and a Japanese Lunch. A special section on “feng shui” demonstrates how to organize and beautifully present a meal.

In this lavishly designed and illustrated volume, more than eighty-five original black-and-white and color photographs bring to life the ingredients, dishes, and people of Asia. The book is rich with personal anecdotes and intriguing information about Asian culture, and nowhere else will you find such a clear, comprehensive, and accessible treatment of Asian cuisine. More than a cookbook, “Essentials of Asian Cuisine” is a celebration of exotic culinary delights.
