You Just Keep Pushing Me Away ... · 6:45pm Oct 20th, 2016

Just a little note today. Not really tied into work—though that keeps progressing as normal—but more just a thought that's been on my mind over the last few days.

Poetry · 7:37pm Mar 3rd, 2014

So, I'm no great poet (there's documented proof of that), but there's a new poem floating around on Twitter, purportedly written by an 8th grader:

Our Generation

Our generation will be known for nothing.
Never will anybody say,
We were the peak of mankind.
That is wrong, the truth is
Our generation was a failure.
Thinking that
We actually succeeded
Is a waste. And we know
Living only for money and power

Bob Dylan, Dante, and Genres of Literature · 11:44pm Dec 11th, 2016

This year Bob Dylan has received the Nobel Prize in Literature. As this is the first time the prize has been awarded to a singer-songwriter, it has caused no end of heated discussion in educated circles about whether this was the right decision. Traditionally the prize has gone to novelists, philosophers and poets. But the times they are a changin’, and the prize committee appears to be now more open to alternative ideas about what constitutes ‘literature’, and willing to take a look at more

Okay sorry, but this has been on my mind for too long! · 6:02pm Sep 22nd, 2023

Awhile back, I got in a debate with someone over the ending of a story. I liked it, he hated it.

The general basis for his hate of the ending was actually morally based. He thought the ending was bad because it ended with humanity being "forcefully" turned into ponies, unicorns, and pegasi (the story, in essence, was an Equestria's origins story).

Review--Creating Faulkner's Reputation · 4:38pm Jul 26th, 2017

The most significant fact about 20th-century English literature is that it was dominated by cliques and entangled with politics, from the very beginning of the century.  As I explained in "Modernist Manifestos & WW1: We Didn't Start the Fire—Oh, Wait, we Totally Did", this process began in France in the 1850s, when, in response to the overcrowding of the Paris Salons

The Quickening: The triumph of garbage literature · 3:00pm May 12th, 2017

From the title, it's obvious that this has prejudice, so I'll try to be as clear as possible.

A book whose information is false, is full of clichés, has an empty speech and content is a garbage book, therefore this is garbage literature. In other words, a book made not to express but to sell.

Fan-fiction and the geography of freedom · 10:13pm Mar 30th, 2017

I like to snark at Europeans who say personal liberty started with the French Revolution. The American Revolution created a representative government with guaranteed civil liberties. The French Revolution created a representative government that terrorized its own people. The American Revolution had a lot more American-on-American violence than high school textbooks admit--for instance, Washington marched an army against the militias of Western Pennsylvania--but a lot less head-chopping than

Review of the Iliad, or, The Rage of Bad Horse · 4:22pm May 17th, 2016

Western civilization began with the ancient Greeks, and the ancient Greeks agreed unanimously that their religion, ethics, and poetry began with The Iliad. So that's where my review of Western literature will begin.

Fantasy Novels · 7:59pm Sep 1st, 2017

Many of the comments to my previous blog entry were asking if there was any way of acquiring the fantasy books I mentioned. As I said, my goal is to get an agent and then a book deal, so at this time I've decided against self-publishing.

That isn't to say, though, that I'm opposed to sharing them. If you'd like, you can PM me with a good email address, and I'll happily send along one or both. I'm fairly proud of them, so I'm happy to let people read them.

Camelot to Canterlot · 3:55pm Oct 2nd, 2020

I have recently developed a passing curiosity about Arthurian Legend. It seems every story ever written about King Arthur is some sort of fan fiction. While stuck at home, I read T.H. White’s Once and Future King (1958), which is Thomas Malory fan fiction. Malory’s Le Morte D’Arthur (1485) is a translation and compilation
