Love Ghost

Filed under: General — Tags: , — m759 @ 2:45 AM

Every Love Story Is a Ghost Story

is the title of an August 30, 2012, biography
of the late author David Foster Wallace. 
(See a Guardian  review.)

For example…

The Lovely Bones,  Telemark, and  Behind the Green Door.

“I have to break in my new suit
and limber up my muscles somehow,”
said Penny defensively. “One can’t
practice outdoors when there’s no snow.
Now watch this one, Mrs. Weems.
It’s called a telemark.”

Labyrinth 23

Filed under: General — Tags: , , — m759 @ 7:00 PM

The title refers to a search (see below)
suggested by three things—

  1. David Foster Wallace biographer D. T. Max
    "There's a note in one of my files where he says something like,
    'Infinite Jest  was just a means to Mary Karr's end, as it were.' "

  2. "There is a body  on  the cross in my church ." —Mary Karr

  3. A body.

The search Labyrinth 23.

(Within the search results, note particularly the post "The Infinity Point.")

The Lovely Bones

(Continued)

"… and crown thy good with brotherhood…"

"The brothers are charged with murder,
conspiracy to commit murder,
disposing a body,
and tampering with evidence,
according to police."

The Lovely Bones*

Filed under: General — Tags: , — m759 @ 8:48 AM

An adaptation for the late Barbara Lea

Man's spirit will be flesh-bound, when found at best,
But úncúmberèd: meadow-dówn is nót distréssed
For a ráinbow fóoting it nor shé for her bónes rísen.

— After Gerard Manley Hopkins, Society of Jesus

* "And I began to see things in a way that let me hold the world without me in it."
