CommentSynchronicity and TS Eliot  ·  posted 2007 by RonPrice

SYNCHRONICITY

To students of twentieth-century modernism, 1971 was the year when Valerie Eliot published a facsimile edition of The Waste Land’s pre-publication manuscripts. 1971 was a significant year in my own life for it was the year I left Canada and moved to Australia. Thirty-six years later it looked like I would lay my bones in that vast dry dog-biscuit of a continent. The publication of the pre-publication manuscripts of The Wasteland was an event which invited new accounts of the poem’s genetics and fresh assessments of how those might bear on our understanding of the poem. My move to Australia invited a different set of life studies and interpretations of my life-narrative and as the decades advanced fresh assessments of their meaning. -Ron Price with thanks to Valerie Eliot, ed., T. S. Eliot: The Waste Land: A Facsimile and Transcript of the Original Drafts Including the Annotations of Ezra Pound, Harcourt Brace, NY, 1971.

One year later, in 1972, I started teaching high school in South Australia. That same year Hugh Kenner and Grover Smith published two essays which, while differing sharply in premises and procedures, reached a consensus that Part III, “The Fire Sermon,” was the earliest portion of the poem to have been written, probably around midsummer 1921, followed first by Parts I and II, then by IV and V, the latter completed in December 1921. I was always impressed, at least since I first studied Eliot in 1963 and then taught his poetry in 1988, 25 years later, at the remarkable synchronicity between the writing of The Wasteland and a crucial stage in the institutionalization of charisma in the Bahá’í Faith associated with the passing of 'Abdu'l-Baha. -Ron Price with thanks to Hugh Kenner, “The Urban Apocalypse,” in Eliot in His Time: Essays on the Occasion of the Fiftieth Anniversary of the The Wasteland, ed. A. Walton Litz, Princeton University Press, Princeton, 1973, pp. 23–49.

CommentHistorical Background of Quilling  ·  posted 2006 by Anand

Hello,

Paper quilling is an ancient art, followed by many past ages. It is popular as “paper filigree.” The term “quilling” was taken from the feather quill. It was used to roll out the narrow pieces of paper. It has a deep relation in its history of invention with the discovery of paper in china. The first representatives of the quilling process were the associates of spiritual organizations. Gradually, it started spreading its wings to wards the other countries. With the passage of time, it became an important part of common person’s life. Read the complete article plese vist the www.articleboom.com and in art and literature dir.

--- exceprt from site --- Whataya' get?

By becoming a Hellomonkey User you gain the ability to post your work on Hellomonkey.com. Be it animation, comics, music, photography, or something that cannot be categorized by such words as "it," "thing," or "is" but must be experienced to be truly understood, it has a potential home at Hellomonkey.

But that's not all!

You'll also be able to post a resume using our resume builder. Searching for an employer, patron, or some other sort of art junkie willing to pay you for their next fix? Direct them to Hellomonkey.com where they can find your latest work and a PRINTABLE copy of your resume! As we grow, we plan to make resumes searchable by category, etc. so people with money (so called "suits") can easily find a genius (you) visual artist, writer, muscian, etc. for the big project they're working on.

By posting your work and a resume on Hellomonkey, you gain exposure to a broader audience. Said audience is small (relatively) but it is growing and with it (theoretically) so will your chances of hooking up with an insane millionaire who thinks that you're the perfect individual to paint a mural depicting the final seige of Constantinople on the head of a pin and then cast it into the Black Sea. Such a profound statement!.

But beware!

We do reserve the right to choose what we will or will not post on Hellomonkey. Yes it is censorship. Of course it is arbitrary. But if we won't take it, there's plenty of other places on the web that will.

So, that's it. What'd you expect? A free party hat? If you have any ideas on how we could make Hellomonkey a better place for you to hang out online, let us know.
