touching images



Embracing ("Ni tsutsumarete", 1992), Naomi Kawase.

modern criticism

 Not only have the words “organized” and “activity,” occurring together in this phrase, that familiar vague suggestion of the scientific vocabulary which is characteristic of modern writing, but one asked questions which Coleridge and Arnold would not have permitted one to ask. (...) And if a phrase like “ [poetry is] the most highly organized form of intellectual activity” is the highest organization of thought of which contemporary criticism, in a distinguished representative, is capable, then, we conclude, modern criticism is degenerate.

sobre o belo

Escrevia boa poesia, uma poesia de certo modo clássica, uma vez que, nos seus poemas, a verdade e a beleza não eram entidades irreconciliáveis, do mesmo modo que o sentido não era apenas uma questão de linguagem.
