Hermit Diary 25: Susan Rothenberg and the essence of things


Susan Rothenberg, a very fine painter, died last week at the age of 75. I knew of her but didn't know the breadth of her work particularly well; this video touched me. Some of the animal images remind me of Lascaux and other cave paintings, and many of them have a quality -- like those prehistoric drawings -- that speaks to me in the present moment.


She said in a 2005 interview, “If you don’t know

Thaliad by Marly Youmans
"Do you find it annoying when sentences go on and on and on and never seem to end and you feel like you are caught in the never-ending story because of how long they are and you just want to come up for air, you just beg for that tiny dot, that period" Read more of this review »

The Book of the Red King by Marly Youmans
"This poetry collection by Marly Youmans is simply one of the most beautiful and haunting book I have read in a long time. Both a narrative collection and a series of loosely related "shards" as the author calls them, it is an initiatory travel on the" Read more of this review »

Lydia Davis
“We know we are very special,” Davis writes in “Special”: “Yet we keep trying to find out in what way: not this way, not that way, then what way?” (from James Wood's review of the FSG "Collected Stories of Lydia Davis")”

John Berger
“Sorrel soup:
"You cut the egg into slices, and you eat it with the green soup. And the mixture of the sharp green acidity and the round comfort of the egg reminds you of something extraordinary and far away.
Of home?
Certainly not, not even for Poles.
Of what then?
...Of survival, perhaps.”
