i am revisiting Othello.... this is the first time i have watched the movie. i usually won't do shakespeare on film unless it is a royal company production. i am, however, impressed :) Laurence Fishburne is awesome.....and hot as othello ;)

Love is....merely a lust of the blood and a permission of the will.

my second favorite quote of hearts and love.

the first is: a heart will never be practical until it is be made to be unbreakable.

of course there are lots from Kundera too :)

Othello
In the new version Iago will be played by Dick Chaney

Dear Maiamuse:

I have just read a poem that you posted a while ago at a place that calls itself ‘a_poetry_club’. (http://community.livejournal.com/a_poetry_club/2260991.html)

I wanted to comment on it if you don’t mind?

The maintainer there was of the opinion that you overused the alliterative device.

I disagree!

I was wildly enthusiastic about this poem and it is my belief that, had the maintainer in question actually read closely – he would have seen exactly what you were trying to do and would also have seen just how clever the alliteration actually WAS!

It was used in PERFECT keeping with your subject matter and (dare I say) brought a Sapphic rhythm to this poem that was not only appropriate, but brilliant as well.

I noticed that your influences were said to be “old English and Elizabethan” and if you take a peek through this link -
http://www.newworldencyclopedia.org/entry/Meter_(poetry)

and apply what you managed to do with the rhythm of the piece you posted against how the two different meters WOULD naturally meet in such a piece... (assuming that you did so with intent and in deference to your subject matter – here it obviously being a Greek mythology influence) you would arrive at what you shared with us in this poem.

So – that was my two cents.

Be well,
Moonlight.


P.S. I am sorry for commenting here but the 'club' didn't seem a very welcoming place to share my thoughts on your poem.

Thank you for coming over here and commenting. I had actually asked the moderator to delete it and he apparently never did. It was not a welcoming community at all and I believe the moderator has it merely to validate his own writings.
It was intentional, I was afraid too intentional, but I needed a structured intent to try and break my writer's block.
Thanks again! It gives me a smile to see that someone actually "got it"!

wandering does not make you a "gypsy."
why would you call yourself
after those who have no home?
long skirts and hoop earrings
do not make you a "gypsy."
why do you call yourself after
those who have no clothes?

"gypsy" is pejorative. please don't perpetuate the stereotype. educate yourself on what it really means to be a "gypsy" in this world.
