on silent haunches

ladies and gentleman -blaise endears is not dead by patti smith

"I am haunted by no phantoms.
It is rather that the ashes I stir up contain the crystallization that hold the image (reduced or synthetic) of the living and impure beings that they constituted before the intervention of the fire.
If life has a meaning, this image
(from the beyond?) has perhaps some significance. That is what I should
like to know. And it is why I write."

MONDAY SEPTEMBER, 1 , 2014

At the root of the problem where our civilization goes wrong is the mistaken belief that nature is something less than authentic, that nature is not as alive as man is, or as intelligent, that in a sense it is dead, and that animals are of so low an order of intelligence and feeling, we need not take their feelings into account.
~ Gary Synder ~ Pulitzer Prize winning poet.

than a half century, with her work achieving
enormous popularity, and translated internationally
into many languages

open/close                read more about Nancy Morejón                                     
Nancy Morejón (b. 1944, Havana, Cuba) has been writing and publishing poetry for better than a half century, with her work achieving enormous popularity, and translated internationally into better than ten languages. Among her many honors are the Cuban Premio Nacional de Literatura (2001), the Gold Crown of Macedonia (2006), the Rafael Alberti Award (2007), the Gallega Universal Writer (2008) and, most recently, the prestigious Latin American Studies Association Award (2012). In 2013 she was awarded the Order of Arts and Letters of the French Republic. In 2008, Morejón was elected president of the Association of Writers of the Unión Nacional de Escritores y Artistas Cubanos (UNEAC). Currently, she directs the Caribbean Studies Center at Casa de las Américas, Havana, epicenter of Cuban and Latin American intelligentsia, and serves as Director of the Cuban Academy of Language.

Most of Nancy Morejón's extant poetry was collected into the anthology El huerto magnífico de todos, edited by Alfredo Pérez Alencart; this was preceded by Looking Within / Mirar adentro: Selected poems 1954-2000 (bilingual edition), edited and with an introduction by Juanamaría Cordones-Cook.

Her first collection of poetry to appear in the US, Where The Island Sleeps Like A Wing, was published in the Bay Area by the late Robert Chrisman's renowned Black Scholar Press in 1985, and translated by Kathleen Weaver. Her most recent poetry collections are Peñalver 51 (2009, Mockingbird Foundation of Zamora, Spain), and the anthology Exposed Havana (2012, Vigia de Matanzas Edition).

Eyes Wide: The Films of Stanley Kubrick
September 4 - October 31
Kubrick Films
This complete Kubrick retrospective begins with his first feature, 1953’s Fear and Desire, an existentialist exercise
in the futility of war, and ends with Eyes Wide Shut, an absurdist exercise in the depths of the erotic,
released afterhis death in 1999. These thirteen films, made over a span of forty-six years,
reveal the ever-curious, pessimistic,and meticulous mind of one our great directors.
