...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.

Jeffers, Meditation On Saviors

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.
