Book Vs. Movie: The Year Without a Santa ClausThe Rankin/Bass 1974 Classic Special Based on a Light Verse Book For many 70s kids, the Rankin/Bass specials with their catchy music and stop motion animation, were high art. From Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer to Santa Claus is Coming to Town, their specials garnered big ratings and helped popularize holiday music. One of their most iconic specials was based on a 1956 Phillis McGinley book, The Year Without a Santa Clause which told the story of a burnt-out Kris Kringle who wanted to take leave for one Christmas. McGinley (1905-1978) was a master of the “light verse” and used humor to describe everyday life. Throughout her writing career (as a poet and children's author) she loved to talk about humility and living a simple, suburban life. She was not aligned with Sylvia Plath or Betty Friedan who questioned the purpose of being a woman in the 20th Century. McGinley was a lonely child who married at 32 (late for the time) and lived a Mad Men kind of life in Larchmont, NY. The Year Without a Santa Claus was first printed in Good Housekeeping magazine and was later published as a book. Boris Karloff recorded a version for Capitol Records shortly before his death in 1969. In the story, Santa has a bad cold just before the holidays and feels like he is no longer important to kids. When the world's children learn this, they gladly send him their toys to finally give him the Christmas of his dreams. Knowing he is loved sends him back to his old Santa ways.The TV special adds elves Jingle & Jangle, who, along with reindeer Vixen, look for children who still care about Santa. They are shot down (!) by competing Snow & Heat Misers who want to control the weather. In the southern part of the United States, they get into all kinds of trouble with some incredibly catchy tunes and performances by Shirley Booth, Mickey Rooney, and Dick Shawn. Does the spirit of Christmas win out? Duh! So, which did we prefer between the original story and the classic TV special?

This episode is all about the eerie melancholy and beauty of graveyards and why we should go pray, read poetry, and spend time in churchyards among the Dead. Why graveyards can be peaceful and romantic - the importance of 'memento mori' - and three famous 'graveyard poems.'

Please consider supporting Human Voices Wake us by clicking here. You can also support this podcast by going to wordandsilence.com and checking out any of my books. Tonight I read twelve essential poems from the British poet Ted Hughes (1930-1998). They can all be found in his Collected Poems (smaller selections of his poetry include Selected Poems 1957-1994 and A Ted Hughes Bestiary). In this episode I also read from The Letters of Ted Hughes. The poems are: Wind (from the Hawk in the Rain, 1957) Six Young Men (from the Hawk in the Rain, 1957) Crow's Song About God (from Crow, 1970-71) “I skin the skin” (from Gaudete, 1977) A Green Mother (from Cave Birds, 1978) Bride and Groom Lie Hidden for Three Days (from Cave Birds, 1978) Cock-Crows (from Remains of Elmet, 1979) Rain (from Moortown Diary, 1979) February 17th (from Moortown Diary, 1979) Four March Watercolours (from River, 1983) October Salmon (from River, 1983) Life After Death (from Birthday Letters, 1998) This is followed by a reading Hughes gave of his poem, “October Salmon.” Other episodes on Hughes include one where he discusses privacy for his family in the wake of Sylvia Plath's posthumous fame; another where he discusses how he discovered poetry; and another, much longer episode of readings (4.5 hours) from Hughes's poetry. Any comments, or suggestions for readings I should make in later episodes, can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. I assume that the small amount of work presented in each episode constitutes fair use. Publishers, authors, or other copyright holders who would prefer to not have their work presented here can also email me at email@example.com, and I will remove the episode immediately. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/humanvoiceswakeus/support

Her mother, Aurelia Schober, was a master's student at Boston University when she met Plath's father, Otto Plath, who was her professor. They were married in January of 1932. Otto taught both German and biology, with a focus on apiology, the study of bees. In 1940, when Plath was eight years old, her father died as a result of complications from diabetes. He had been a strict father, and both his authoritarian attitudes and his death drastically defined Plath's relationships and her poems—most notably in her elegiac and infamous poem "Daddy."Plath kept a journal from the age of eleven and published her poems in regional magazines and newspapers. Her first national publication was in the Christian Science Monitor in 1950, just after graduating from high school. In 1950, Plath matriculated at Smith College, where she graduated summa cum laude in 1955. After graduation, Plath moved to Cambridge, England, on a Fulbright Scholarship. In early 1956, she attended a party and met the English poet Ted Hughes. Shortly thereafter, Plath and Hughes were married, on June 16, 1956.Plath returned to Massachusetts in 1957 and began studying with Robert Lowell. Her first collection of poems, Colossus, was published in 1960 in England, and two years later in the United States. She returned to England, where she gave birth to her children Frieda and Nicholas, in 1960 and 1962, respectively. In 1962, Ted Hughes left Plath for Assia Gutmann Wevill. That winter, Plath wrote most of the poems that would comprise her most famous book, Ariel. In 1963, Plath published a semi-autobiographical novel, The Bell Jar, under the pseudonym Victoria Lucas. She died on February 11 of that year. Plath's poetry is often associated with the Confessional movement, and compared to the work of poets such as Lowell and fellow student Anne Sexton. Often, her work is singled out for the intense coupling of its violent or disturbed imagery and its playful use of alliteration and rhyme.Although only Colossus was published while she was alive, Plath was a prolific poet, and in addition to Ariel, Hughes published three other volumes of her work posthumously, including The Collected Poems, which was the recipient of the 1982 Pulitzer Prize. She was the first poet to posthumously win a Pulitzer Prize.From https://poets.org/poet/sylvia-plath.

Welcome back, Literary Slummers! This week we're continuing our listener/friend slubmitted unit on sad girls with a classic sad girl novel.

"When you have a regimen, it's ok to let up on yourself. Because you know that tomorrow, you'll be doing it again."Madison Cunningham firmly believes in the writer's regimen. You have to put in the work every day. None of this "waiting for inspiration" stuff. "Words on a page every day, even if it's not songwriting," she says. So she starts each day by writing for ten minutes because everyone can make time for ten minutes. No excuses.Cunningham also reads voraciously. "Books are one of my favorite wells to draw from," she says in this episode. She draws inspiration from iconic writers like Mary Oliver, Sylvia Plath, Flannery O'Connor, and Kurt Vonnegut. But books are not her only source of inspiration: dishes are too. Cunningham is yet another in the line of songwriters I've interviewed who gets song ideas while washing dishes. "Every time I've put down the guitar and picked up a dish, I've never regretted it," she says. Of course, it's not that the act of scrubbing food that gives us song ideas; instead, writing happens subconsciously. Writers of any stripe need to understand that the writing process happens when we're eating, sleeping, walking, talking, sitting, staring, whatever--even doing dishes, because the mundane activities allow our minds to wander. Cunningham is a two-time Grammy nominee (2019, 2022). Her third and latest album is Revealer.

Boos meisje van Marja Pruis Deze week bespreken we een nieuwe bundel van één van de Grand Dames van de Nederlandse literatuurkritiek: Marja Pruis. In Boos meisje verkent Pruis verschillende soorten fricties rond, van, en tussen vrouwen. Als een ware essayist-specialist laat ze persoonlijke anekdotes, literaire verbeelding, politieke vertogen en belangrijke kunstwerken met elkaar in gesprek gaan. We kletsen over essays, frictie, en mensen die de Groene Amsterdammer lezen. ‘Ik was nog vergeten om het over Boos Meisje te hebben. Boos Meisje laat zich niet paaien. Boos Meisje doet iets met haar wenkbrauwen dat nog niemand beschreven heeft. Denkt er het hare van, maar wat dat is? Maakt aantekeningen, maar ik ben bang voor wat ze noteert. Ook zoiets: Boos Meisje glimlacht niet beleefd. Neemt niet je jas aan. Parkeert achteruit in zonder in de spiegel te kijken.' In toenemende mate zijn de essays van Marja Pruis verplichte leesstof voor onze tijd: onbeschaamd erudiet en onnavolgbaar grappig heeft ze het over de hoekigheid van Rachel Cusk, over het vrouwenhaterige van Renate Rubinstein, het Arabisch van Sigrid Kaag en de arrogantie van haarzelf. In beeldende, bijtende observaties schrijft Pruis over misogynie, sociale pikordes, over het ideaalbeeld van de vrouw en de realiteit, over hoe schrijfster te zijn. Vrouwen hebben een onmogelijke opdracht in onze maatschappij. Lief zijn, maar ook stoer. Alleen niet té stoer, want dan ben je een Boos Meisje. Terwijl dat juist de leukste vrouwen zijn. Vind het boek hier in de webshop. Meer lezen van Marja Pruis? Dat kan! Verplichte leeskost voor een nieuwe generatie feministische lezers Je kunt een leven lang over feminisme nadenken, feminist zijn, maar toch telkens opnieuw uitgedaagd worden om te bedenken wat het nou precies inhoudt. Vooral als er een nieuwe generatie feministen aan de deur klopt, speelt die vraag weer op. Wat Marja Pruis helpt bij het vinden van een antwoord? Boeken. Dus vroeg ze zich af: welke boeken moet de moderne feminist eigenlijk gelezen hebben? Ze schakelde een keurkorps aan denkers in om een actuele canon voor een nieuwe generatie lezers samen te stellen. De nieuwe feministische leeslijst is een verzameling lofzangen en kanttekeningen bij oude en nieuwe helden, radicale denkers, zachte eenlingen en dromers en drammers als Sylvia Plath, Maggie Nelson, Clarice Lispector, Renate Dorrestein en Audre Lorde. Met essays van onder andere Niña Weijers, Mounir Samuel, Bregje Hofstede, Franca Treur, Fiep van Bodegom, Roos van Rijswijk en Clarice Gargard. Vind het boek hier in onze webshop. Guusje Bouhuys, poëziedocente, huisvriendin, zus, heeft haar leven op de rem gezet. Als haar beste vriend wordt beschuldigd van plagiaat en een dierbare collega doodziek blijkt, beseft ze dat ze haar zorgvuldig geconserveerde universum zal moeten verlaten. In een absorberende stijl, ironisch en bitterzoet, schrijft Marja Pruis over het verlangen trouw te blijven aan de mensen die met je meelopen, ook als ze er niet meer zijn. Kun je een ander redden, behoeden voor de val? Kun je jezelf bewaren als in een gedicht? Zachte riten gaat over de conflictsituaties van de menselijke ziel, de betekenis van poëzie en de plaats van liefde in ons leven. Marja Pruis schreef onder meer de veelgeprezen romans De vertrouweling en Atoomgeheimen en het biografische portret Als je weg bent. Over Patricia de Martelaere, dat vijf drukken behaalde. Zachte riten stond op de shortlist van de Libris Literatuur Prijs en de ECI Literatuurprijs. Vind het boek hier in onze webshop. Wil je meekletsen met Lola en Suzanne?

Connie's motivational quote for today is by – Sylvia Plath , “And by the way, everything in life is writable about, if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt."

It was so powerful and humbling! At the time I didn't know that publishing a book should have been a critical piece of my business plan all along.

Ben Luke talks to Lina Iris Viktor about her influences—including writers, film-makers, musicians, and, of course, other artists—and the cultural experiences that have shaped her life and work. Born in the UK in 1987, the Liberian-British artist works in painting, sculpture, photography, performance and installation. She creates works that reflect on her own identity amid broader themes—history and geopolitics, astrophysics and maths, ancient myths and belief systems—to explore universal implications of blackness. Among much else, she discusses her love of Rebecca Horn's Concert for Anarchy (1990); the influence of Chris Ofili, Louise Nevelson and Seydou Keïta; her enduring engagement with the writing of Jun'ichirō Tanazaki and Sylvia Plath; and her response to the films of Ingmar Bergman and Carl Dreyer. And, as usual, we find out about her life in the studio, and ask the ultimate question: what is art for?In the Black Fantastic, Hayward Gallery, London, until 18 September; Rite of Passage: Lina Iris Viktor with César, Louise Bourgeois, Louise Nevelson and Yves Klein, LGDR, London, until 17 September See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Shalini Sengupta thinks together ‘the mycological turn' in the humanities and the narrative and aesthetic work that mushrooms do in some modernist literature. She draws from Anna Tsing's The Mushroom at the End of the World and the research of Sam Solomon and Natalia Cecire. Modernist mushrooms, if they are a thing, exist in the writings of Alfred Kreymborg, Djuna Barnes, and Sylvia Plath, and the photography of Alfred Stieglitz. Shalini is a final year PhD student at the University of Sussex, UK. Her thesis explores the concept of modernist difficulty in British and diasporic poetry through the lens of intersectionality. Her academic writing have appeared/are forthcoming in Modernism/modernity Print Plus, Contemporary Women's Writing, and the Journal of British and Irish Innovative Poetry. In 2021, she was selected as a Ledbury Emerging Critic. Image Art by Saronik Bosu Music used in promotional material: ‘How Many' by Windmill Learn more about your ad choices.

In 1961, poets Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath rented their flat to a Canadian poet and his wife, the beautiful, accomplished, and slightly mysterious Assia Wevill. Soon afterward, Ted and Assia began having an affair. Within a year, Assia was pregnant with Ted's child and Sylvia, after years of suffering from depression, had committed suicide. Six years later, Assia would do the same. It's a horribly tragic tale, like something out of Shakespeare, with genius and artistic ambition and love and sex and poetry entangled with themes of power dynamics, infidelity, and mental health problems. The poetic gifts of Ted and Sylvia - and the tragic ending of their marriage - has kept biographers and essay writers busy. But what about the third woman, Assia Wevill, a successful professional with ambition of her own? What did she write? How did she fit into this triangle? In this episode, Professor Julie Goodspeed-Chadwick and Peter Steinberg, editors of The Collected Writings of Assia Wevill, join Jacke for a discussion of the "Other Woman" in the Plath-Hughes marriage.

Ultimately, the marital relationship of Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes was filled with pain and ended in tragedy. At the outset, however, things were very different. Within months of their first meeting at Cambridge, they had fallen in love, gotten married, and started having children - all while writing poetry and supporting one another's art. What did they see in each other as people and as poets? How did they inspire and encourage one another? In this episode, Jacke talks to Plath's biographer Heather Clark, author of Red Comet: The Short Life and Blazing Art of Sylvia Plath, about the creative partnership of Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes.
