    How to Protect Bookstores and Why - Highlights - DANNY CAINE, Bookseller, Poet

    How to Protect Bookstores and Why - Highlights - DANNY CAINE, Bookseller, Poet

    
“The thing that unites my poetry and the nonfiction writing is my main obsession as a writer. It's the question of, how do you live meaningfully in late capitalism? As corporations and global capitalist forces take over the world, what does it mean to try to have a meaningful human life? I think the proliferation of objects might reflect that. A lot of what we do in this world is collect objects, and regardless of whether it's good or bad, you build a nest. I think that in Picture Window in particular, I wanted to write about the domestic in a way that I hadn't written in so far. And then the pandemic happened, so I was forced into this weird, uneasy, claustrophobic domesticity. When your attention is so focused within your own home and within your own family, every object in your house takes on a new resonance. So, when a tennis ball that you've never seen somehow shows up in your house, that's weird. It's poetic. It feels dreamlike.”

    How to Live a Good a Life - Stoic Wisdom & the Founding Fathers - Highlights - JEFFREY ROSEN

    How to Live a Good a Life - Stoic Wisdom & the Founding Fathers - Highlights - JEFFREY ROSEN

    "Being moved to write the sonnets was an unexpected gift that I was given. I certainly didn't expect that unusual practice, but I found myself moved to sum up the wisdom in concise and distilled form just by taking notes on the daily reading that I'd done each morning after watching the sunrise. And I was surprised to learn after starting the project that many people who read this wisdom during the Founding Era were also moved to write sonnets, including Phillis Wheatley, the great poet, Mercy Otis Warren, Alexander Hamilton, and John Quincy Adams, who would read the Tusculan Disputations in the original and read Cicero in the original in the White House for consolation, write sonnets, and watch the sunrise and walk along the Potomac."

Really enjoy listening to all the great poems and poets!

I have always enjoyed the artistic format and structure of poetry that highlights interpersonal emotions, unique ideas and subliminal thoughts. On the surface level, many poems are just shadows of artistic compositions, however this show unpacks the hidden meanings and what the poets intended to convey. I not only appreciate the thought and stylistic expression within discussed poems but also how they can relate to oneself, the world, and the poet. I had a great time listening to poems by writers such as Neil Gaiman, Alice Fulton, Mia Funk and such. The occasional background music is a nice and soothing touch too!

Lovely

Poetry is so important and complex! I love hearing Mia cover this form of art and poets have so much to say about the current state of our world and they say it beautifully in so few words

Hannah Lumi ,

A gorgeous account!

This podcast is truly awe-inspiring! I believe the written word to be our most powerful account of history, human emotion etc. Hearing the personal passions/techniques of each of the guests here is not only deeply touching, but motivating to young artists. Just great!
