  • “Many of us learn to construct a clear and precise vision of what we want, but we’re never taught how to enjoy what we actually have. There will always be more victories to strive for, more strangers to charm, more images to collect and pin to our vision boards. It’s hard to want what we have; it’s far easier to want everything in the world.” ― Heather Havrilesky, What If This Were Enough?

  • The stars are like letters that inscribe themselves at every moment in the sky. Everything in the world is full of signs. All events are coordinated. All things depend on each other. Everything breathes together.

  • ¡Hola gente! ¿Cómo andan? Hoy es el #DiaMundialdelaPoesía así que, obviamente, hablaremos de ella ❤.
Como muchos sabrán, en la literatura sucede que se establecen variaciones en los paradigmas estructurales a través del tiempo, o sea que un género puede ir transformándose, así como lo que apreciamos del mismo en diferentes contextos históricos.
La poesía es una de las artes que está sufriendo grandes cambios de apreciación, y yo creo que para bien.
Hace 40 o 50 años, leer poesía como la de Elvira Sastre, Rupi Kahur, Amanda Lovelace, y muchísimas más autoras del estilo, sería algo de no creer, algo que incluso hubiese generado un debate increíble.
Por suerte, hoy contamos con una nueva apreciación de lo que llamamos poesía, con un significado más abarcativo aún y con una forma tan descontracturada y profunda que enamora.
*
Ahora, en este caso particular, este libro que ven en la foto no me gustó tanto. Pero creo que es porque tal vez no logré conectar con la mayoría de las letras que Rupi Kaur nos entrega en cada página.
Les comparto un poema que si me gustó:
"La luna es responsable
de sacar las olas
del agua en calma
cariño
yo soy el agua en calma
y tú eres la luna".
*
Gracias obvio a @loschicosnoleen por el ejemplar.

  • This novel delves into some really intense emotional spaces. After the death of a husband who only caused her misery, the main character relinquishes her hold on life and gives herself up to apathy. In the midst of an affair with her aged father in law and feeling numb and careless, she falls for the gardener, tries to get a hold of him and, failing that, plots to spread her misery to him and many others as a sort of consolation.

This novel was really different than the other Japanese novels I've read, mostly because of the density of the prose. I got the impression reading this that Mishima is a master and also that this probably isn't his best novel. It felt like the work of someone who could do and has done much more.

  • Ahead of Dr Alex Barber's talk on Frankenstein on 28 March at ImagineBelfast,  catch-up with Dr Sue Asbee's video on the relevance today  of the social issues raised by Shelley https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-1QNMnaO_FE&

On 1 January 1818, the world was introduced to Victor Frankenstein and his creature by 18 year old Mary Shelley. Dr Sue Asbee, Senior Lecturer in English, explores the important social questions Frankenstein addresses and why the issues remain relevant and important today. "Frankenstein and the hyena in petticoats" (sold out, but we have a waiting list!) Thursday, March 28, 2019 - 17:00 to 18:30 
The Grand Opera House, Belfast 
http://www.open.ac.uk/northern-ireland/events/sold-out-frankenstein-and-hyena-petticoats

As part of the Imagine! Festival of Ideas and Politics, this event will take a fresh look at Mary Shelley’s novel, Frankenstein. Dr Alex Barber of The Open University will consider the surprising presence of the author’s mother and father – political philosophers Mary Wollstonecraft and William Godwin – within the book. Using video clips during the talk, Dr Barber will uncover the influence of Shelley’s parents on this novel, particularly her feminist mother, who was called ‘a hyena in petticoats’. ​

Minimum age limit: 18+ ​This event is sold out, however we are operating a waiting list. #politics #ideas #OU50 #ImagineBelfast #grandoperahouse #philosophy #literature #frankenstein #feminism #womenshistorymonth

  • "My reasons for opposing Christianity are diferent those of the people at large. I have never thought of Christianity as an evil religion.
(...) Father, I want you to think over two things this old man has told you. One is that the persistent affection of an ugly woman is an intolerable burden for a man; the other, that a barren woman should not become a wife."

  • Я вас люблю, — хоть я бешусь,
Хоть это труд и стыд напрасный,
И в этой глупости несчастной
У ваших ног я признаюсь!
Мне не к лицу и не по летам…
Пора, пора мне быть умней!
Но узнаю по всем приметам
Болезнь любви в душе моей:
Без вас мне скучно, — я зеваю;
При вас мне грустно, — я терплю;
И, мочи нет, сказать желаю,
Мой ангел, как я вас люблю!
Когда я слышу из гостиной
Ваш легкий шаг, иль платья шум,
Иль голос девственный, невинный,
Я вдруг теряю весь свой ум.
Вы улыбнетесь, — мне отрада;
Вы отвернетесь, — мне тоска;
За день мучения — награда
Мне ваша бледная рука.
Когда за пяльцами прилежно
Сидите вы, склонясь небрежно,
Глаза и кудри опустя, —
Я в умиленье, молча, нежно
Любуюсь вами, как дитя!..
Сказать ли вам мое несчастье,
Мою ревнивую печаль,
Когда гулять, порой, в ненастье,
Вы собираетеся вдаль?
И ваши слезы в одиночку,
И речи в уголку вдвоем,
И путешествия в Опочку,
И фортепьяно вечерком?..
Алина! сжальтесь надо мною.
Не смею требовать любви.
Быть может, за грехи мои,
Мой ангел, я любви не стою!
Но притворитесь! Этот взгляд
Все может выразить так чудно!
Ах, обмануть меня не трудно!..
Я сам обманываться рад!
