English Fragments A Brief History of the Soul

4.27  ·  Rating details ·  15 ratings  ·  1 review
Moving freely through poetry's pictorial fragmentariness and literal fragments of prose, with a streaming, equanimous, nondiscriminatory referentiality, Martin Corless-Smith proposes and confers with entities in "the janus-faced doorway" of antiquity and contemporaneity--the "experience and the coming-into-history of that experience."

Mysteries and corn stand side by side.
A little too 'project'-ey for my taste; that project being 'the soul' in this case; not that there aren't really great parts in there as well (esp. loved Mutability Chorus on p82). I didn't like when he related the body/soul thing to writing/literature. It seemed a bit too myopic.
The terrible thing about being a writer is that it is what I wanted.
