COMMENTARY: Old Soldiers Never Die

This stanza is to be found in Canto Andrew Johnson and Ronald Reagan both had vetoes overridden, in andrespectively. Yet, despite political differences on these two votes, in addition to naming unqualified former Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate, in a misguided attempt to secure the votes of women, I still admired John McCain.

And so far all of my characters have been posthuman. In fact, the great blemishes of In Memoriam, its redundancy and the dislocation of its parts, were largely due to the desultory manner of its composition.

Forgive my grief for one removed, Thy creature, whom I found so fair. Poetry at its best has the effect of a mind-altering drug.

I hope we could add, honorably. And I do think that writing poetry is my own attempt, in a way, to provoke the system of myself into a transition to otherness, as you say. The first quarter was an unusually good one in terms of hedge fund mortality, and still, tearful letters were written to loved ones, a.

Surrealism, of course, was born out of the catastrophe of World War I, as the practitioners of Dada, having deconstructed the culture that gave rise to that war, sought something positive to put in its place.

He will be sorely missed. The spirit does but mean the breath: Today, the nation mourns the passing of another giant, Sen. Sentient, of course, would not be sentimental about its own demise: Is that the work? As poets, we are forever learning to speak our native language. I hear it, for example, in how much you make of the erasure that creates word out of world: He spent the next five and a half years in captivity as a prisoner of war, tortured almost every day while in captivity.

Therefore a translation can only ever be a pale paraphrase of the original poem, leaving behind overtones and undertones of meaning that exist only in the source-language.
