Comments

Thanks so much for all these posts this week--love the HD/HDTV & O'Hara when he dishes! I wonder what you think draws folks to HD--the use of myth, myth to talk about what isn't talked about, etc?

Very interesting post. It is conceivable that the campaign for Barbara Guest, the "left out" member of the NY School, has a homophobic element in it. Three of the four poets at the center of the NY School (Ashbery, O'Hara, and Schuyler) were gay, and in their work there is a quality of high camp ("homosexual aestheticism": Susan Sontag) missing from Guest's.
"Personism" is a masterpiece.

Thanks both for your comments. I think you are right about why people might read H.D.--the mythic gets right to the psychic without the detritus of the present social world. Also, the sheer beauty of her free verse. She is a master of free verse rhythm.

Very interesting comment on Barbara Guest. I agree!

Radio

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

THE RULE OF THUMB
by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
