“A little dispirited”: a eulogy for 2011


  1. Vomithelmet McGee

      I have to write a comment because I don’t “like” this, I felt faint reading it and it relieved some despair and it was gross too. Anyway, it’s impressive.

      15-hours-post-script, please to note: no disrespect intended toward you, deaders, or to celan’s beautiful, deeply moving poem, via the goofiness of my lame high school Deutsch remark – again, thanks

      Celan becomes indispensable to most who read him.  If you’ve not, yet, then Hamburger’s Selected Poems is maybe the most useful place to start — more copious than any other single book I’ve seen in English, and printed bilingually in the practical way (Deutsch and English pages facing each other)–the better for us Hochschule Germanists to crib from.

      Oddly, Celan backed away from Death Fugue as it became popularish.  He found it – as I understand him – to be too theatrical, or maybe just too obvious, in its refraction of “Deutschland”.  I think he wrote poetry differently – more fractured, more piercing and monstrous, (to me) better – in reaction to the fairly rapid approval of Death Fugue.

      Absolutely scarcely on the topic of the notebook images of this blogicle, I was reading reaction to this charming commentary – http://takimag.com/article/the_talk_nonblack_version_john_derbyshire#axzz1rSn4JMpN – and I came across this bit of hilarity:  http://www.jest.com/video/165065/porn-stars-against-santorum .  Happy Eastertide!

      looking forward to checking out the Hamburger – the internet tells me two copies ‘on shelf’ at downtown berkeley public library waiting for me to come and find

      derbyshire article – um, erm, makes me squirm
