Auden and Stravinsky

The shabby, dandruff-speckled and slightly peculiar-smelling poet could not have been more unlike the neat, sartorially perfect and faintly eau-de-cologned composer.

Reading Pessoa

Came across this reading Pessoa today:


Tengo grandes estancamientos. No es que, todo el mundo, tarde días y días en contestar con una postal la carta urgente que me han escrito. No es que, como nadie, retrase indefinidamente lo fácil que me resulta útil, o lo útil que me resulta agradable. Hay mas sutileza en mi falta de entendimiento conmigo mismo. Me estanco en el alma misma. Se produce en mí una suspensión de la voluntad, de la emoción, del pensamiento, y esta suspensión dura magnos días.


There you go.

New Chapter One

Having visited my agent a couple of weeks ago, we decided to make a few changes to Chapter One of PIGS. The new Chapter One has now been posted.

To quote Edward Thomas, after nearly five months of blazing sun and hot weather: Rain, midnight rain, nothing but the wild rain on this bleak hut, and solitude, and me. In Ocentejo, as you can see, desperately trying to get PIGS ready before the beginning of December. The task seems more impossible as each day goes by and I look at how much there is still left to do. Brings Allen Ginsberg to mind: Four skinheads stand in the streetlight rain chatting under an umbrella. Rainy night on Union square, full moon. Want more poems? Wait till I'm dead.

PIGS (Version 4)

I am posting the first chapters of PIGS version 4. Just back from El Bierzo in the North West of Spain. One of the most beautiful parts of the country I have seen. Well worth a visit.
