The Poets

This is too cool ... tell me what you think.

All I’m saying is that Ezra Pound (modernist poet, born 1885) and Edward Norton (modern day actor, born 1969) both share a similarity of physical facial features that are uncanny, amazing, and nearly bordering on creepiness … take a look, tell me what you think.

Quite Uncanny

Call me a fool- well, okay, don’t call me a fool … but is it me, or would Jeff Goldblum be the perfect actor in a movie portraying the life of one of the founders of the Beat Poets, Allen Ginsberg? Their semblance is quite uncanny- agreed?

"Had they but courage equal to desire ..."

I cannot begin to articulate the depth of influence that this particular poet has had on my life.

To express internal realities that transcend the mundane through mythological and eschatological writings that defy prose; to deliberately interweave those expressions so as to bring to mind brutal historical events revolving around the loss of love; to be brazenly mystical and a champion of truth via verse, is for me- in light of authenticity and the bravery of creativity- the mark of a poet worthy of historical recognition.

Happy birthday, Yeats (1865-1939). "Had they but courage equal to desire ..."
