    Gary Bisaga's last comments on poems and poets

    • POET: William Blake (9/17/2009 8:09:00 AM)

      I agree with Barbara Bizarro completely except the line:

      The simplicity of his writing underlines the little society at the time knew about the consequences of their actions.

      I think society knew very well the consequences of their actions; or more precisely, most in society did. It's easy, looking back now, to not see the daily struggle for existence that most people went through. They may not have scientifically understood everything that happened as a consequence of their actions, but they certainly knew that behavior A resulted in situation B. Blake helped usher in the romantic ideas of simplicity and idealism (the the ideal society is simplest and most natural) so in that sense did damage. But I agree that he is an excellent writer, and I am really beginning to appreciate his glorious poetry myself.

    • POEM: Cliche Came Out Of Its Cage by Clive Staples Lewis (8/26/2009 3:50:00 AM)

      This is only MY guess, but I don't think so. I am very familiar with Lewis' writings, and I am always struck at how the same common themes are woven through his poetry, fiction, and non-fiction writings. I believe this is his poetic form of what he wrote at the beginning of his essay 'Is theism important? ':

      When grave persons express their fear that England is relapsing into Paganism, I am tempted to reply, 'Would that she were.' For I do not think it at all likely that we shall ever see Parliament opened by the slaughtering of a garlanded white bull in the House of Lords or Cabinet Ministers leaving sandwiches in Hyde Park as an offering for the Dryads. If such a state of affairs came about, then the Christian apologist would have something to work on... The Christian and the Pagan have much more in common with one another than either has with the writers of the New Statesman; and those writers would of course agree with me.

      Likewise, his other poems like 'A vulgar error' echo themes he writes about in books such as Mere Christianity.
