william blake's milton

Eve Tempted Satan

in the guise of the ancient serpent... illustration William Blake


Paradise Lost milton's defence and the argument against nOn rhymin verse
THE Measure is English Heroic Verse without Rime, as that of Homer in Greek, and Virgil in Latin; Rhime being no necessary Adjunct or true Ornament of Poem or good Verse, in longer Works especially, but the Invention of a barbarous Age, to set off wretched matter and lame Meeter; grac't indeed since by the use of some famous modern Poets, carried away by Custom, but much to thir own vexation, hindrance, and constraint to express many things otherwise, and for the most part worse then else they would have exprest them. Not without cause therefore some both Italian, and Spanish Poets of prime note have rejected Rhime both in longer and shorter Works, as have also long since our best English Tragedies, as a thing of itself, to all judicious ears, triveal, and of no true musical delight; which consists onely in apt Numbers, fit quantity of Syllables, and the sense variously drawn out from one Verse into another, not in the jingling sound of like endings, a fault avoyded by the learned Ancients both in Poetry and all good Oratory. This neglect then of Rhime so little is to be taken for a defect, though it may seem so perhaps to vulgar Readers, that it rather is to be esteem'd an example set, the first in English, of ancient liberty recover'd to heroic Poem from the troublesom and modern bondage of Rimeing.

Guy deborders was very good at hold ing heads,
but not so good at holding hands.

teh first volume of his autobiography is chocbloc
as I recall with resentments

Guy Debord
Correspondance, volume 7
Fayard - 2008

En 1988, Guy Debord fait paraître ses retentissants Commentaires sur la société du spectacle, où les «quelques conséquences pratiques, encore peu connues, qui résultent de ce déploiement rapide du spectacle durant les vingt dernières années» viendront confirmer ses thèses de 1967, en disant «ce qui est».

De façon similaire, sa correspondance - qui avec ce volume arrive à son terme - montre, durant les sept années qui vont lui rester à vivre, que face à une nouvelle forme de notoriété il continue de juger et d'agir selon ce qu'il est.

Il décidera, le 30 novembre 1994, de franchir, à l'heure choisie, sa propre ligne d'arrivée ; comme il avait décrété que l'année 1951 devait être celle de son véritable point de départ. Car «la suite était déjà contenue dans le commencement de ce voyage».

Mister D! you are striking through your own texts!

whats happening??????

We're Not sure we like them! Mister Courier!

after a ll verse poems are moods reflections and so on. imaginative reconstructions of not so biographical necessarily tales.

So it goes.

that was...q u i c k

saying it was over

you said
baby lets become punks

six months later
everyone cut their hair

i like this music.as i write.:
Sonata for violine and keyboards. no 5. in F minor.

you came once. lit a smoke. lay back spreading yer eyes
wall to wall

we were furniture.

ugly as sin.
me too.
i was so ugly

the night wanted t o shatter my legs.

i tried to become queer out of respect for you.

we 'd ended up on the bed.
with our clothes making out
badly hotly

round 4 in the afternoon.

i came with my jeans on
you did too.

your girlfriend was jealous.

these love days you had ugly cuts as sickening as the line marks
on a fat ass''s chin
were not
but when we fucked.
it was tornado . time. darling.


the friendship between deleuze et tzra was a secret as the love of communism and moi moi and communism.

I was.
in a cafe.

long ago
tzra went there.
each day.

one afternoon.
deleuze came by.
he was wearing sunglasses.

he came quietly to tzara's table who was quite older
they shook hands
laughed then continued to speak

Tzara turned to me in a prose poem
he said my friendship
with this man is secret as a secretary
and is as eternal as the sky

continue he said

contin "my friend, the mathematician _ my oldest friend, at least so far

he said
Clifford you know the city better than some people who live here.

well that was then,
who knows
what i will know
when next I go"

well we all know cities change. sometimes in Montreal, i forget where i am and thinking and dreaming imagining i think i am there in Paris,

and the sky
I remember the sky the heaven sent slate blue sky of montreal and its universal beauty

and th e October sky of Paris.

the first day I got there , Maurice met at the airport,
we went to have coffee

and later the same day, I helped him move. and met Isabelle. the woman he had married..

well first i slept then we moved. him his baby and Isabelle later that day to
after that, every day I took the train to the city. then the metros and walked every

Dans une autre vie,
in another life I walked around the lecture halls
where Deleuze had taught,,, the smoke filled room.... we worked hard then the students... the crazy crowds and lectures... electric voice of learning and tape recorders and intensity...

"chaque mardi matin à l’Université Paris VIII Vincennes et à ..." those were the wild days and mornings of discipline.

In another life,
you walked with the old man Mister Sami Rosenstock Tristan Tzara.

Deleuze walked we met him. Moi et le vieux homme. Il a parle tres bien. Il etait mon pere.

ima ga _ paris in the sixth arrondissement...


I've just stumbled across this interesting link to paris, and various sites and scenes over there... and it looks like apartments, as well, that are being rented... prob. a bit expensive for me... but what's wrong with dreaming of the cities I love most in the world....

c'est un presque ville proche des reves
un ville proche de mon coeur et mon coeur et l'ami de mon coeur
et coeur de mon ami et
proche de mon
"city" ma ville Paris


"All about Paris. Based on our experience and tons of articles kept in numerous random folders that may now be thrown out."

found images and links to paris arrondissement....

Paris ....... in the 6th arrondissement and close to our rental apartment - 39 Vaugirard....

"Posted by Paul " and reposted here by yours truly, Clifford Duffy
"Montparnasse Cemetery – This nearby cemetery is a fun walk for kids with the final resting places of Charles Baudelaire, Eugene Ionesco, Samuel Beckett, Jean-Paul Sartre, Man Ray, Simone de Beauvoir, and Tristan Tzara, among many others. (Map in book in our apartment or available at Edgar Quinet entrance.)"

I recall as I came to Tzara's grave how simple and unassuming it was. It was like when I came to Sartre and Debeauvoir's , how simple and even, humble they. were.

as lightening is to sky. as heaven to earth.a s mocking birds to song. as my heart is always close to paris.
to the quartiers and metro and arrondissements.
so many walks over the city and around _______________> here

O O O a real woman? a real woman, you mean a woman __ a woman .

O I was watching Wings of Desire it was so long since I saw

Yes, the scene when he picks up the stone in her room
not too after they meet
he picks up as a ghost at first but an angel ghost

But you didn't answer my question Mister D.

your question, yes, well a real woman,

its been so long since I tasted a real woman's breast
my mouth can't taste for seeing

yes that's how long

Mister D-- you need to work on these series more

these people and their wars

from counterpunch
August 20, 2008 Proportion and Distortion Russia and Georgia By MICHAEL NEUMANN

It's said that Russia's response to Georgia's attack on South Ossetia is disproportionate: we hear of "Western leaders anxiously watching for a withdrawal and puzzling over how to punish Moscow for what they called a disproportionate reaction to the Georgian offensive". No one has asked whether a disproportionate reaction or response is always wrong.

War, or an armed attack, can itself be a disproportionate response to some offense. If Britain, for example, declared war on Sweden for producing Abba, that would be disproportionate. It would also be wrong, because Abba isn't cause enough for initiating violence. Britain could at least ask for a large indemnity first. The Nuremberg tribunals placed aggression, a "crime against peace", ahead of war crimes. Perhaps this was meant to remind us that wars usher in far worse than war-fevered cheerleaders suppose, and are virtually always an immoral and disproportionate response to offences.

for the remainder go to counterpunch

jesus de montreal

--------------- this movie is actually filled with diverse ins and outs pun, comic relief, and spiritual truths that cut over the highbrow ideas of our daily lives. we are dancers of the body adn spirit. crucifixion or crucifiction.....

________________ and it shows some nice sceneries de of Montreal. A funny city. Montreal. Un ville comique et lourde et aussi bien belle~

Dir. Denys Arcand
Cast includes Lothaire Bluteau, Robert Lepage, Rémy Girard, Johanne-Marie Tremblay and Catherine Wilkening.

---------------- a tht end of the film. he dies in the Metro. The actor playing Jesus in the movie. I used to live near that oratory. its a horrible place at day, but quite splendid at night. Montreal villes des esprits catholique et tant d'autres et tant d'autes....

------------------ And the voice of this hard French Canadian( I refer to the woman who is speaking of the stations of the cross...)is captured so well. Nothing so hard as a french canadian woman's voice
nor nothing as pure as the voice when happy.

But this is true of all Peoples.

Le voix des autres.
et ta voix, toi la, dans ton corps et tes seins et tes mains
et les villes et les autre villes
le presque proche ville plus proche a moi que des autres
le plus proche presque ville a montreal

2008year of a thousAnd plateaus

"2008 is apparently not only an Olympics year, but capitalismandschizophrenia.org has proclaimed 2008 2A Year of A Thousand Plateaus," dedicated to the collective study of Gilles Deleuze’s and Félix Guattari’s ‘book’ by the same name (book here appears within inverted commas as a precaution, since the writers themselves did not like to apply the word book to what they saw as an altogether different thing). From the capitalismandschizophrenia.org main page (outdoolinked above):
"[The capitalismandschizophrenia.org construction site is a] project which is gradually becoming, and the first collective project is to read and write A Thousand Plateaus, back and forth, over, under, and piercing through. The main task of this wiki is to function as a philosophical meeting place for those who read Deleuze & Guattari's books. It is open for everyone to create an account and start filling it up. There are no concrete rules when it comes to definitions, interpretations or applications. This site is not around to set Truth straight. Rather you are encouraged to participate in a spirit of dialogue, recognizing what is productive in the multiple ways of proceeding with those great books."
