Power Quote: Luna Miguel

It’s impossible to support today the idea of the author as a divine entity… If we want people to approach poetry, it would be better to delete the myths.

      it’s hard not to do that when she’s that hot

      There’s no way to delete myths. Consciousness lives itself out mythologically.

      Yeah, no one is deleting myth anytime soon… unless she’s talking about the myth of “The Poet.” That myth is bogus. Poets are people. Not seers.
      But Icarus, Oedipus, Jesus, Ulysses, Joan of Arc? We’ll be dealing with those myths until we aren’t human beings anymore, because they are just really big, narrative metaphors for the way our human brains work.
      See “Hero with a Thousand Faces”

      What a silly idea. Poetry is a myth itself. People are only people. No matter if they are poets or not. It’s not the same.

  8. Benny

      But I really don’t understand the meaning of this statement. Maybe has she ever thought that a poet was an alien?

  9. Garett Strickland

      I think that if a poet is doing their job right, then they’re a seer.

      Yes, delete the myths so more people will read poetry! No more “this book was created by a divine entity, read it!”, just, “this book was created by a boring asshole, read it!” Yes! YES!!!!!

      But then again… with so many poets chronically despondent over not being rightfully recognized . . . why complain if a poet or two gets deified?

  13. deadgod

      Because the two misrecognitions – negligent dismissal and deification – are two side of the same culturally generative polyhedron.

  14. Owen Kaelin

      That makes complete logical and rational sense, deadparadox.
