...But of these sophisms and elenchs of merchandise I skill not...
Milton, Areopagitica

Except he had found the
standing sea-rock that even this last
Temptation breaks on; quieter than death but lovelier; peace
that quiets the desire even of praising it.

From a book by John Christie, containing some correspondence between Christie and John Berger, a quote from Joseph Beuys in conversation with Bernice Rose:

"In discussing Claude Levi-Strauss, Guy Davenport has noted that for modern man chaos is outside, but primitive man sees disorder as internal and the outer world as harmony, he disciplines himself in order not to contaminate the world."

the book itself is warm and astonishing in its friendly elegance.

NYPress - Film - Matt Zoller Seitz - Vol. 14, Iss. 51 Many people say the Harry Potter movie represents the first installment in a new generation�s Star Wars, but box-office take aside, I suspect that�s way off-base. With its brisk pace, elegant photography, diamond-hard fantasy characterizations and general aura of lived-in density, Jackson�s film exposes Harry Potter as a competent but uninspiring piece of franchise-building. Fellowship is the new Star Wars because it reverses the equation, reminding us that Star Wars was, in many ways, a flattened-out sci-fi variation on Lord of the Rings. In all the ways that count, it�s a richer, deeper movie than Star Wars (which cribbed from Tolkien) and its countless imitators; it�s richer and deeper because it treats good and evil not as storytelling conceits we�ve all collectively agreed to believe in for entertainment�s sake, but as analogs for our own real-life struggle to be good in a world that constantly tempts us with evils both small and large.

Language remains this inexhaustible reservoir from which noises, proverbs and stories continue to flow when water is scarce � For memory and language are places both of sameness and otherness, dwelling and travelling. Here, Language is the site of return, the warm fabric of a memory, and the insisting call from afar, back home. But here also, there, and everywhere, language is a site of change, an evershifting ground.

"I am told God lives in me -- and yet the reality of darkness and coldness and emptiness is so great that nothing touches my soul," she wrote in one of the letters.

The letters' release comes days after the archbishop of Kolkata, the city formerly known as Calcutta, said church officials performed an exorcism on Mother Teresa at a hospital later in her life. This act and the letters showed Mother Teresa was "both holy and human," making her even more special, Archbishop Henry D'Souza said.

CNN's Satinder Bindra reports on letters from Mother Teresa that show she often was tormented by doubts over her faith (September 7)

What is an exorcism?

Excerpts from Mother Teresa's letters

The nun's letters were largely forgotten until two years ago, when the Vatican began gathering paperwork on Mother Teresa -- including all her confessional letters -- for sainthood proceedings. The correspondences were sent from India to Rome, with some being published in the "Journal of Theological Reflection."

Some of the letters depict a spiritually bereft Mother Teresa, struggling to maintain her belief.

"Where I try to raise my thoughts to heaven, there is such convicting emptiness that those very thoughts return like sharp knives and hurt my very soul. Love -- the word -- it brings nothing," wrote the woman known the world over as the "Messiah of Love."

In another letter, Mother Teresa wrote, "In my soul, I can't tell you how dark it is, how painful, how terrible -- I feel like refusing God."

Church officials said the letters strengthen Mother Teresa's case for sainthood -- the struggle with her own spirituality and purpose showing her humanity.

"You can't be a saint without having suffered," said the Rev. Edward de Joly, who once served as spiritual adviser to sisters in the Missionaries of Charity, the Kolkata-based humanitarian order founded by Mother Teresa in 1950.

"This is part of the spiritual life of people, and God sometimes wants to unite the soul very closely to himself," added Sister Nirmala, head of Missionaries of Charity and one of the late nun's closest confidantes. "He will allow them to feel abandoned by him. And Jesus also on the cross felt he was abandoned."

'My most important rule is one that sums up all 10. If it sounds like writing, I rewrite it.
Or, if proper usage gets in the way, it may have to go. I can't allow what we learned in
English composition to disrupt the sound and rhythm of the narrative. It's my attempt
to remain invisible, not distract the reader from the story with obvious writing. Joseph
Conrad said something about words getting in the way of what you want to say.'

Marquez y Marcos

A Zapatista Reading List
by Gabriel Garc�a M�rquez & Subcomandante Marcos

The following remarks are excerpted from a longer interview between Colombian Nobel laureate Gabriel Garc�a M�rquez, representing the Mexican magazine Cambio, and the Zapatista leader Subcomandante Marcos. The full text appeared in Cambio earlier this year.

Garc�a M�rquez/Cambio: Do you still have time to read in the middle of all this mess?

Marcos: Yes, because if not...what would we do? In the armies that came before us, soldiers took the time to clean their weapons and rally themselves. In this case, our weapons are our words, so we have to depend on our arsenal all the time.

Garc�a M�rquez/Cambio: Everything you say--in terms of form and content--demonstrates a serious literary background on your part. Where does this come from and how did you achieve it?

Marcos: It has to do with my childhood. In my family, words had a very special value. The way we went out into the world was through language. We didn't learn to read in school but by reading newspapers. My mother and father made us read books that rapidly permitted us to approach new things. Some way or another, we acquired a consciousness of language not as a way of communicating with each other but as a way of building something. As if it were more of a pleasure than a duty or assignment. When the age of catacombs arrives, the word is not highly valued for the intellectual bourgeoisie. It is relegated to a secondary level. It's when we are in the indigenous communities that language is like a catapult. You realize that words fail you to express certain things, and this obliges you to work on your language skills, to go over and over words to arm and disarm them.

Garc�a M�rquez/Cambio: Couldn't it be the other way around? Couldn't it be this control over language that permits this new era?

Marcos: It's like a blender. You don't know what is thrown in first, and what you end up with is a cocktail.

rusted faith good biker art last time I checked this guy's stuff and presentation had improved a lot. and it was already good. there's a bikerish/adolescent aspect, but it's like tool, maynard keenan's undeniable stance. it's there it's scary, and it's very real. but there's more. i guess that's why my initial reaction was dismisive more than praiseful. there's more, and it's light. but at times like this, darkness IS a kind of light.
