Roger Shattuck, Scholar,
Is Dead at 82

In his honor, some excerpts from previous entries:

Wednesday, January 19, 2005

I just subscribed to The New York Review of Books online for another year, prompted by my desire to read Roger Shattuck on Rimbaud….

“How did this poetic sensibility come to burn so bright?”

The Shattuck piece is from 1967, the year of The Doors’ first album.

(See Death and the Spirit, Part II.)

The Times says Shattuck died
on Thursday (Dec. 8, 2005).

Here, from 4:00 AM on the
morning of Shattuck’s death,
is a brief companion-piece
to Eight is a Gate:

Four is a Door:

From Carole A. Holdsworth,
Dulcinea and Pynchon’s V:

Tanner may have stated it best:

“V. is whatever lights you to
 the end of the street:
 she is also the dark annihilation
 waiting at the end of the street.”

(Tony Tanner, page 36,
 “V. and V-2,” in
 Pynchon: A Collection
 of Critical Essays.
 Ed. Edward Mendelson.
 Englewood Cliffs, N. J.:
 Prentice-Hall, 1978. 16-55).

She’s a mystery
She’s everything
   a woman should be
Woman in black
   got a hold on me

Foreigner 4

She’s in midnight blue,
 still the words ring true;
woman in blue
got a hold on you.

But seriously…

A follow-up to the previous “tiger” entry (which was about an old but good dirty joke).

I just subscribed to The New York Review of Books online for another year, prompted by my desire to read Roger Shattuck on Rimbaud, a tiger of another sort:

“How did this poetic sensibility come to burn so bright?”

The Shattuck piece is from 1967, the year of The Doors’ first album.  (See Sunday’s Death and the Spirit, Part II.)

From today's
New York Times
:

Alexander Hammid,
96, Filmmaker
Known for Many Styles,
Dies

By KATHRYN L. SHATTUCK

Published: August 8, 2004

Alexander Hammid, a filmmaker whose body of work spanned the genesis of the experimental movement in Czechoslovakia, early anti-Nazi documentaries and soaring modern Imax spectacles, died on July 26 at his home in Manhattan. He was 96.

His work in the 1950's and early 60's involved his passion for the arts,  [including] … a collaboration on Gian Carlo Menotti's opera "The Medium" and a documentary series of master classes by the cellist Pablo Casals….

 

"… legend has it, supported by Casals himself, that he was conceived when Brahms began his B-flat Major Quartet, of which Casals owned the original manuscript, and that he was born when Brahms completed its composition."
