Kahlil Gibran (1883-1931) is the author of the classic “The Prophet” and is bestselling American poet of the 20th century. He's honored in Arabic literature as one of the greats of their Romantic era. However, in America his critical reception has been much more mixed. While the public loves his work, critics celebrate him far less than his contemporaries, such as Robert Frost. But no one cares what elitist critics think. Beauty is a right, like air, water, and freedom of speech. Our tastes matter. In this poem of paradoxes, Gibran discovers the joy in defeat, the flaws of victory, and his own potential for triumph, hiding in the unlikeliest of places. May his masculine vision of the noble pursuit of purpose inspire us all.

Episode 482. Part 2 of our interview with Ted Schirmer about his memoir, Defiance. In the '70s, even twenty years after Brown v. Board of Education, LSU was still refusing to give up its racist past. While most students attending LSU were primarily focused on obtaining a better life through getting a college degree, some could not turn their backs on injustice. The students who fought at Ted's side were not the wealthy fraternity or sorority members. They were from middle to lower-middle class families and the working poor. It was Ted's goal in writing this book to honor their sacrifices and tell what it was like to fight the system-the LSU administrators, the Board of Supervisors, and the Greek organizations-in the deep south in the turbulent '70s. This week in Louisiana history. August 14, 1903. Albert Batson hanged in Calcasieu Parish Jail for murder of six members of Welsh family. This week in New Orleans history. Pelicans' "Cotton" Knaupp's Triple Play, August 8, 1916. While playing second base for the New Orleans Pelicans on August 8, 1916, Henry Antone "Cotton" Knaupp became the only player in the history of the Southern Association to turn an unassisted triple play. With the bases loaded and Knaupp playing 2nd base in a game against the Chattanooga Lookouts, he caught a line drive hit by shortstop Joe Harris, tagged Jake Pilter who was running from first to second base, and stepped on 2nd base to put out Bob Messenger before he could return to second base.

Ep 180: Two Erotica Authors, Lucille Lewis & Ruan Willow, Chat about writing erotica, fantasies, sex, & the writer's life. Listen to my chat with Lucille! We had so much fun! It's a girl's chat & you get to listen in! We discussed writing: how to do it, writer's block, story development, & using both our own sexual fantasies & those of others, in our erotic writing. She read an erotic poem, which was yummy! We chatted about the novel she's working on, which she is co-writing, plus her writing on Medium. We discussed how erotica helps people explore and experience their kinks and fantasies & why it's so much more powerful, & personal, as compared to watching porn. We broached the topic of the negativity of many people in this world who view erotica as bad, those judgmental people are a part of the bigger problems in our sex-is-taboo sex-negative society. Erotica embraces sex/sexuality openly as a normal everyday thing, which it should be, & often is, even though our culture tries to pretend it's not. We chatted about how important it is to be a genuine person, a whole person, on social media. We talked about how real friendships can happen on spaces like Twitter, & how close & solid those friendships can be. We get to connect & make friends with like-minded people from all over the world we may never have met in our lives. We gushed about how unbelievably great, supportive, & amazing the erotic writing community is on Twitter. It's a very special phenomenon that constantly blows my mind in a very good way.Check out Lucille Lewis's work on Medium: https://medium.com/@looloubelleFollow her on Twitter: http://twitter.com/LoolouLewisThank you for coming on my podcast Lucille!Want to join Medium?

When we think of racism, we often think of actions, obstacles, systems. What we often overlook is the power of images, movement, art, and words. They represent the power of both harm and hope. Elizabeth Alexander in her new book, The Trayvon Generation, uses this prism to share poetry, art, and film. And along with her exquisite, evocative language, we find ourselves educated, provoked and challenged. Elizabeth is singularly equipped to tell us this story. She is a poet. Many were introduced to her when she read her poem “Praise Song for the Day” at President Obama's inauguration. She is a bestselling, award-winning author and is now the president of the Mellon Foundation, the nation's largest funder in the arts, culture, and humanities. But at her core, she is an educator, having had that role as chair of African-American studies at Yale University. In her new book, that is just what she does. She educates us, and the poet in her delivers the education with lyrical beauty. Elizabeth Alexander is a prize-winning and New York Times bestselling author, renowned poet, educator, scholar, and cultural advocate. Her most recent book, The Trayvon Generation (2022), is a galvanizing meditation on the power of art and culture to illuminate America's unresolved problem with race and the challenges facing young Black America. Among the fifteen books she has authored or co-authored, her memoir, The Light of the World, was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in Biography and the National Book Critics Circle Award in 2015 and her poetry collection American Sublime was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in Poetry in 2006. Notably, Dr. Alexander composed and recited “Praise Song for the Day” for President Barack Obama's 2009 inauguration. Over the course of an esteemed career in education, she has held distinguished professorships at Smith College, Columbia University, and Yale University, where she taught for fifteen years and chaired the African American Studies Department. Dr. Alexander is currently president of the Mellon Foundation, the nation's largest funder in the arts, culture, and humanities. * Roxanne Coady is owner of R.J.

TODAY'S GUEST John-Paul Flintoff is a writer, performer, and illustrator, and the author of books like How to Change the World and A Modest Book About How to Make an Adequate Speech. He worked for 15 years as a writer and associate editor on the Financial Times, The Sunday Times, and other papers in magazines, and has been involved with The School of Life in London as a lecturer and writer. Today, he runs a subscription service called Adequate Projects, which provides moral support and a bit of financial freedom in return for discounts and exclusive access. EPISODE SUMMARY In this conversation we talk about: The importance of creativity and how he learned it as a child. His attraction to poetry and why he became a journalist. His book, How to Change the World, and the burden it placed on him later in life. His involvement with The School of Life. What learning improv taught him about creativity and about life. His work on public speaking and his book on the subject. And how tragedy reshaped his life and led him on a search for more resilient happiness. We spoke in early June 2022, and I was excited to talk to John-Paul because of his involvement with so many things I care about, from The School of Life, to mindful use of technology, to improv and creativity, to the art of writing. I left this conversation feeling inspired by John-Paul's honesty, his never-ending search for expression, creativity, and happiness, and the wisdom with which he connects with the people around him. I think most of our listeners will feel the same. This conversation is one of many weekly conversations we already have lined up for you with thinkers, designers, makers, authors, and entrepreneurs who are working to change our world for the better.

This week, Esther Belin speaks with Toni Giselle Stuart, a South African poet, performer, and facilitator. Belin says, “When I first heard Stuart's poetry, I was moved by her use of sound and breath to create tension and emphasis. She works against fractionating the whole person in ways that offer healing.” We hear two poems by Stuart, “maghrib” and “midnight,” from the July/August 2022 issue of Poetry. The poems are from a new trilogy of speculative fiction. Stuart says of the genre, “Speculative fiction gave me space to explore questions around identity in a way that was less suffocating.” Belin and Stuart also get into rhythm as an integral aspect of acknowledging self and land, and of healing. In the world Staurt is building, she says, “Rhythm has a capital ‘R'.”

Poetry is the hidden language of scripture, art, and our daily experiences. In a world that values doing above reflection, we've lost the ability to understand and appreciate the role of good poetry. What does a world that's full of poetry and wonder actually look like?Joining us today is Sally Read, a Rome-based English poet, and writer. She shares how she went from being a staunch atheist to Catholic in a short span of 9 months. How after her conversion she is now wilding her prose and poetry to illuminate the life of the Church and the Gospels.
Tonight, we'll read poems by John Keats starting with one titled “Sleep and Poetry.” John Keats' poems are a major part of English Romantic poetry. They portray settings loaded with symbolism and sensuality, and draw heavily on Greek and Roman myth along with romanticised tales of chivalry. Keats died in 1821 at the young age of 25, having written the majority of his work in less than four years. In his lifetime, sales of Keats's three volumes of poetry probably amounted to only 200 copies. The compression of his poetic apprenticeship and maturity into so short a time is just one remarkable aspect of Keats's work. Keats was convinced that he had made no mark in his lifetime. Aware that he was dying, he wrote "I have left no immortal work behind me – nothing to make my friends proud of my memory – but I have lov'd the principle of beauty in all things, and if I had had time I would have made myself remember'd." Keats's ability and talent was acknowledged by several influential contemporary allies. His admirers praised him for having developed a style which was more heavily loaded with sensualities, more gorgeous in its effects, more voluptuously alive than any poet who had come before him. While not appreciated during his lifetime, he has gone on to become one of the most loved of the Romantic poets, and has provided inspiration to many authors after him. — read by V —

Am I coming through just fine? Your memory was buried in simple box of pine (chorus): Did her green eyes seduce you and make you get so weak? Was there fire engine red that she left upon your cheek? It's such a shame you had to break the heart you could have counted on But the last thing you need is another episode of blonde Revolving like a jeweller's figure on a music box The spangled curtain parted and night-club scene unlocks Pinned and fixed and fastened in a fallow spot Arms thrown out to everyone, she's giving all she's got To the last gasp of a wounded bandoneon A tiny man imploring to the ceiling fan this stolen feeling Amplified up through a busted speaker Blaring, blasting, advertising, distorted beyond reason Into the street where petty crime-coats shadow panic drunkards Half out of the taxi-cab the barker seized my elbow He thought I was another lonely, likely pilgrim looking for St. Telmo (chorus) I tried to keep a straight face but you know it never pays He would stare into those eyes and then vacation in her gaze She was a cute little ruin that he pulled out of the rubble Now they're both living in a soft soap bubble The film producer's contemplating, entertaining suicide The picture crumpled in his fist, his runaway child bride The timepiece stretched across his wrist She couldn't care less cast aside The scent that so repelled him that he swore: "insecticide" And there's farewell note to mother That will conclude "Your loving Son" "Oh, tell your other children not to do as I have done" Did her green eyes seduce you and make you get so weak? Or was there fire engine red that she left upon your cheek? It's such a shame It's such a shame, shame, shame A shame you had to break the heart you could have counted on But the last thing you need Is the last thing you want Is another episode of blonde It's another episode of blonde, oh oh oh It's another episode of blonde So an artist drags a toothbrush across the first thing that he sees And names the painting "Christ's Last Exit into Purgatory" Receiving secret messages from an alien intelligence And Paying off his stalker it's a legitimate expense So paste up pictures of those shrill and hollow girls with puckered lips She's a trophy on your arm, a magnet for your money clip The moral of this story is a sorry tale to say They're pieced with links of chains so they can never run away
The first falsifier in the tenth of the evil pouches of fraud (those famed "malebolge") steps up to tell his tale: a funny joke about grifting, the stupidity of his mark, and the unexpected whims of damnation in Dante's INFERNO. Dante is clearly having a good time. And we should, too. Because one of the ways you save your humanity, even in hell, is to laugh at human foibles. Join me, Mark Scarbrough, for an explication of this short passage toward the end of canto XXIX in INFERNO. We've got a storyteller on hand. And he wants to tell us his tale. Here are the segments of this episode of this episode of WALKING WITH DANTE: [01:23] My English translation of the passage: INFERNO, Canto XXIX, lines 109 - 123. If you'd like to read along, please find this passage on my website, markscarbrough.com. You can even drop a comment about this episode. [02:56] The first falsifier gives the details of this life but not his name. In fact, he speaks about himself using Dante the poet's favorite technique: periphrasis. [04:33] Should we trust the commentary tradition on the identity of this character? [11:01] Why must we historically identify every figure in COMEDY? [12:53] The rage for (interpretive) order may obscure the low humor of this passage. [14:41] Your actions in "real" life may not determine your place in the afterlife. [16:54] Why is alchemy such a great sin in the Middle Ages? [20:37] Poetry is alchemy--and so this pit is the climax of the narrative of the fiction in the eighth circle of fraud. [24:41] How do you keep your humanity in hell? You laugh!

Former Nebraska State Poet Twyla Hansen declares that "poetry can save you." In the show, Hansen talks about making sense of the world and of herself through poetry, her affinity for the sacred, wild, and wondrous places around us, and how poetry can be a salvation in the face of pain and grief. Twyla Hansen was born and raised in northeast Nebraska on the farm her grandparents had purchased as immigrants from Denmark in the late 1880s. Hansen served as Nebraska's State Poet for the term 2013-2018. Her newest book of poetry, Rock • Tree • Bird won the 2018 Willa Literary Award and the 2018 Nebraska Book Award for Poetry.

Whether you care to admit it or not, when you play with sex, you are playing with the heart.You can expect this to be one of my more bittersweet but not quite bleak episodes. Tune in, if you will, to an unsavory story of unconquered love and common war of the sexes.

481 Part 1 of our interview with Theodor "Ted" Schimer about his memoir, Defiance. In the '70s, even twenty years after Brown v. Board of Education, LSU was still refusing to give up its racist past. While most students attending LSU were primarily focused on obtaining a better life through getting a college degree, some could not turn their backs on injustice. The students who fought at Ted's side were not the wealthy fraternity or sorority members. They were from middle to lower-middle class families and the working poor. It was Ted's goal in writing this book to honor their sacrifices and tell what it was like to fight the system-the LSU administrators, the Board of Supervisors, and the Greek organizations-in the deep south in the turbulent '70s.

Harris, who is also the creative mind behind Project Tzimtzum: Play, Learn, Make, joins Dan and Lex for a conversation about the Jewish present and future. They hop from, and to, a wide variety of topics, including literature, fandom, Dungeons & Dragons, and darkness.Pre-order The Red Door by clicking here!

“These United States are themselves the greatest poem.” When Walt Whitman wrote this line, he was an unknown Brooklyn newspaper man. But his work would transform American poetry and offer a new vision of American identity—one that was diverse, urban, and embodied.
