From 18 feb a virus fucked up my hard drive thats why i disappeared so look out tertius is back ricardo

Tertius said...

See u havent stopped i now have lots of material to share and a perhaps a play should be co written or produced because the theatre is the vehicle for performance poetry i have the text written and the characters etc u can take this raw material further but i will contact u on this later as i dont trust this damn net

Tertius said...

or maybe film is the medium either way i have developed a poetic script in a traditional dramatic structure that is in the form of a tragedy with comic relief the story has been developed for ten years so its not a whim it needs collaboration and performance and u picked up it is indeed gothic in parts i have given u some excerpts in the comments

Regarding the 18 feb blog i have no objections to sharing i contextualised the material to converse with you and added some characters like the fischer king etc to relate to a layered reality which engages eyelight rather than postulate any negativities or critiques which i have no interest in, ive engaged some of my own text to your text and they have their own relations that is all. Any other comments become hierarchical and that was the 'tower' i was trying to deconstruct the language poetry in symbolisms and democratise my entries to eyelight. The script ive written is far more traditional in structure as it has to be to convey the plot

Tertius said...

Ive written two plays of a trilogy which draw on realities in different time zones for example consider the revenge and horror tragedies after shakesp. and relate that to basic crime story and draw on real events. Consider macbeths curse of the witches 'infected be the air whereon they ride and damn all those that trust them'

Tertius said...

{4th comment is tertius not anon] So there we have macbeths curse and the promise of the crown by the witches . Roman Polanski directed Macbeth in 1971 backed by Hefner and Playboy before that in1968 Polanski made Rosemarys Baby about a Witches Coven having a demonic pact with an aspiring actor that raise the devil to impregnate his wife so he is promised Faustinian worldy wealth.

Tertius said...

Later in the 1969 polanskis pregnant wife was murdered by the manson followers so the horror became real.The point is the layering or versions of truth which affect us all recall the 'play within the play' of these dramas . These dark matters are raised so they can be expunged and order restored.

The beauty of the plasma and its minute state in the unseen and the machinations of the tiny. The ants followed the mighty elephant and devour him because its in their nature and the four seasons of the human condition apply to the text and its conglomeration to propose a condition that relates to any setting, this is the application of language poetry to sound of Bach or the sculpture of David or mumblings of Brando who is to say the value is in the sense so hope and valour defeat horror and avarice and bury the witches that reappear at the end of Polanskis macbeth but dont in Shakespeares original . Weld the chain back together and restore the order of the crown.

The paintings of the master , the sculpture of the beast , the visions of the sage and smiting of the word, the world and heavenly promise, peace and love and rest. O to sleep little one you are safe here tonight.

Hail tertius!

I have seen the Polanksi Macbeth. I also read a book about Manson years ago but cant recall that connection to Polanksi.

[On the net I use a free anti -virus AVG]

Not sure about a play or a film but it is possible - I just watched a video I had of the first poetry Brats thing -id read well there and so did Yves Harrison, Renee Harrison (he is doing a degree in religion/philopsphy etc, Raewyn Alexander, Matt Sunderland, myself and Linda Earle. Strange to think that was about 15 years ago...

Matt maybe contact for movies or Roger Horrocks - not really my area - although of course potentially I want to involve all media or modes - someone on here might know where to submit play...

I did perform 'Tin Drum' at the Little Maidment in 1991 and 1992.

More later - I just got in

tertius -

potentially - potentialy I emphasise -I want everyone (or
anyone -clearly there are prtcical reatrints but these are not based on "heirachy" or quality per se - simply practicality and legality) ) to contribute (particpate) in to the IP - of which EYELIGHT is a subset.

One point - reading Barthes (commentary actually) on Intertextuality etc and Derrida somewhat - this adds to what I am doing - sort of converges - the "Death of the Author" happened with Constructionism - quickly - in my view there is one new point here...

The elimination of the Bourgeois (culture, thinking, structure) (not poss. comepletely yet) potenially means a new working class - a real - liberated and paradoxically vitally more individual working class - liberates the creativity of all - but also pursues the "dream" of Barthes etc against sameness - against the "tradition" or the idea of a "centre"...
That is it struggles to resist production / straight to consumption per se...

It also wants difference and deferance... hence the Other - you are - well, you know about that.

That said I do sell things!! (Not much these days)

But here for ex I refuse to have adverts....

But as to your play / film - yes -
possible -yes ...

And pot. I want interaction and all media - how to do that practically is the problem..


Short comments just for now.

What do you mean by the ip address entry ? the virus reminded me of the macbeth quote and the reference to hierachy is to do with the "tower" not eyelight. The factory or architecture of a building and how intertextual development concerns the small and the large. Also the mixture of fact and fiction in any work.

tertius said...

Also is your 'shadow sleeps' poem developed from a previous poem of yours or is it new? It hits hard thus my "smiting of the word, world....etc"

tertius said...

The haze of fact/fiction; the virus the supposition of an impending production, related versions and adaptations... this is where poetics endure...one more attempt and the need to sleep securely then to dream. c co con conc conci concis concise. The word builds up to a meaning which is 'concise' it has expanded in contrast to its definition. Here in a shell there is a process and a construction diametrically against the meaning. So concise in message and expansive in structure. So can u see the reason in madness ...happy happy dream.

Interesting response to Alan's work. BTW I am not directly "connected" to Alan Sondheim he works on his own Internet Project which has hundreds maybe thousands of texts and images and sound files etc etc

You've lost me here.

I'm not necessarily working from any theory toward anything. Basically I just kind of "compose".

I'm going to write or on what I am doing, and something of the how and why and the nature of the process of it, in the next two weeks or so.

That was an old poem I found -I integrate ideas and processes of my The Infinite Poem with things here - so briefly what I have is spectrum or range of things - some direct - some deliberately poetic as in "symbolist poetry" etc and there are things here that are actually simply learning things...and so on - from the personal to the random etc whatever..also fragments of old poems are repeated as the Blog "progresses"...

You could see it as kind of long and ongoing "musical composition" ..some stuff is improvised - some is "stolen" and so on...

This "talking about it" is also a part of it. That goes back to Brecht. The I. P. developed from ideas in an essay by Charles Bernstein.

Richard Taylor said...

I'm just watching the Dave Letterman Show...very droll!

Richard Taylor said...

Reading some Laforgue who influenced Eliot and Pound and Joyce etc - Itook somethgof his form his (mainly satirical) "Moral Tales " (satiric rewritres of Hamlet) and used it e.g. in my poem "The Innnocent Age" I interjected the phrase

"He washed his hands in eyeballs."
which is something I changed done by Laforgue...

Hard to get his work translated although I do attempt some translations with dictionary etc

Richard Taylor said...

BTW you mentioned Brando -the Mumbler extraordinaire!! - - he is great in "Apocalypse Now" -great film based on all sorts of things esp. Conrad's "Heart of Darkness" and Brando reads from Eliot's The Hollow men (which quotes (he has a note at the head of his poem: "Mr Kurtz - he dead") (he also talks elsewhere of "the horror"...) "Heart of Darkness" and 'the hollow men' is (from a speech in Julius Caesar (it is Brutus commenting) and so on and on... all these connections...

Great film, - many layers.

tertius said...

Earliest memory of the performing poets was circa 1989/90 at the Albion i think and recall a great atmosphere in contrast to the academic conditions ... forgive this descent into sentimentality.

tertius said...

This comparison between the poetry of the 'street' and the 'tower' is the dichotomy of almost all of my comments and their own inter-relations. It would make a compelling novel or play.

Potentially yes - there are also meeting points so to speak - the whole issue is mixed with 'politics' (class), philosophy and manyissues - nominally the Language Poets were "street" poets eson a sene but they were also theoreticians -some people are better in "academia". (Ron Silliman is not an academic - he is working for a private company I think - and such as Bernstein etc are academics) - but both would endorse (say) Ted Berrigan who never "made it" to academia and was always kind of "down and out" (I don't mean he was a bum) but pretty happy I think (his son writes also BTW; Ted was good and responsible father I herd also)... the debate is complex. We have Noodle String who boasted once he was "illiterate" (to me when I asked if he had read much poetry or literature) - he used to sell his poems on the street on Saturdays at K Road)

As a young man I probably would have pursued an academic career - but I diverged (I started with science but didn't do any good)..only later I started reading at the Albion more or less by chance...

Perhaps the fact I had spent so many years not studying literature - being a family man and or a lineman et etc meant I brought something or perhaps I lost something by not going to learn literature as Jack Ross did - (in fact I also did later more intensely in the 90s as you did) I cant know...

It is an interesting are but not a simple dichotomy. We need "street" poets etc and academics and others... some people who seem arrogant or aloof are, simply shy.

But done with some subtlety, that subject and others mixed, could be part of, or one of the bases of, a novel or drama...

And is it a Tower? One of Yeat's books was called 'The Tower'... And a dichotomy - more a dialectic?
