research in poetry

"One old patrician is said to have expressed his love for literature in a particularly inventive manner. Instead of buying 'books without number' like everyone else, he spent vast sums filling his house with learned slaves, each of whom he required to become in effect a living edition of a classic work. One servant might recite The Iliad or The Aeneid; another would chant the Odes of Pindar. Every standard author had a distinctive voice."

Swell up, steep Cossacks.
Baffle us with equitation
Leave us sweating in wonder,
Brows sodden in the sap of twinklestuff.

We foment full and bare in your equipage,
Down down baby
Yanked up new bald and ready
Nape chapped, knees bulbous, awkward in space.

Fly forward and pull us on,
sweet heedless Nymph, ambrosial tartlet.
Baked Alaska of the lea, whip, melba.
Dulcet beast.

I like the way you're walking if you're walking my way
Needle and thread, one hand washes the other.
As birds sing out of sight, dull tines at the ready
to pierce the cervical arteries of our hillbilly foes.

Playing golf on the moon is one of the last things you would expect any man to do, but Alan Bartlett Shepard, Jr, the fifth person to walk on the moon did it during the apollo 14 mission. He played golf with a Wilson six-iron head which was attached to a lunar scoop handle. Since he was wearing a very thick astronaut's suit he could swing the golf club with only with a single hand.

Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day canceled

Tuesday, March 31, 2009

The planning committee that organizes the annual Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day program has announced that the 2009 event has been canceled due to budget constraints.

The committee had been meeting since October to plan 2009 activities following the success of last year’s event. Since then, however, the economic environment at the university has changed, and the committee struggled to find ways to present this year’s program on a smaller budget.

* "Holub's concentration on molecular destiny, perhaps strategically, overlooks the fact that we are storytelling animals dependent on each other, and moving towards a goal in ways that are partially constrained by the way we have already moved. (...) Holub has been called a humanist -- why, I can't say. Perhaps "humanist" is intended to designate someone who finds no human act or discovery or experience too odd. Otherwise, Holub is about as far from the Erasmian ideal as it is possible to be." - Iain Bamforth, Parnassus (2001 ; Vol.25, Issue 1/2)

* "Holub is an immunologist, and the rigorous logic of the scientist shows in many of the poems, which are almost mathematical in their analogies. But it is a mathematics with blood in it." - Paul Breslin, Poetry (7/1997)

* "His dislike of "poetical" embellishment, his concern that poetry should be rooted in plain, unadorned fact, is a product of years of Communist propaganda in Stalinist Czechoslovakia. It has also been influenced by the methods of the laboratory, which depend, above all things else, upon clear-headed inquiry." - The Economist (5/8/1995)

* "This ability to find wonder in the betrayals of DNA and the workings of viruses and cancers is one of Holub's greatest poetic gifts. He is endlessly fascinated by the grotesque, diseased and deformed. Accordingly, for all its talk of genes and genomes, Holub's poetry seems as much imaginatively indebted to Robert Chambers's theory of monstrous birth as to Darwinian natural selection." - Tim Kendall, Times Literary Supplement (15/5/1998)

* "His wry humour was, paradoxically, eminently serious. He may not have been out to improve the world- he probably did not believe in the perfectibility of man - but he was entirely serious about showing up human frailty and folly." - Ewald Osers, New Statesman (7/8/1998)

* "Witty, austere, classical, totally without egotism or sentimentality, he was a tireless awakener of the cynical and the servile. Throughout his poems and his prose writings, he insists that we learn a humility that can oppose the corrupt and vicious totalitarian state - the labyrinth in which his favourite symbol the minotaur stalks and stumbles and growls. His poems have a strict, undogmatic openness and wit as well as a heartening strictness and throwaway severity. In them we had that distinctive form of ethical joy we find in Aeschylus." - Tom Paulin, The Guardian (16/7/1998)

* "Holub has much in common with Auden -- a profound interest in science, a highly developed sense of irony, a strong sense of oneself as a citizen, and not least a distrust of the ego and the ego's sense of its own value, what he describes (...) as "the dubious theatre / of a thousand actors and one spectator". It is not the world which vanishes, in Holub, but ways of coping with it, such as Communism, serum shots, or particular types of humour." - John Redmond, Times Literary Supplement (28/3/1997)

* "Miroslav Holub seems to expect his readers to act like scientists, who are curious in every direction, take nothing for granted, and are willing to accept any truth, however unexpected." - Matthew Zapruder, Verse (Volume 15, Numbers 1 and 2)


Trapped in thought; a study of the Beckettian mentality.

Levy, Eric P.

Syracuse U. Pr.


248 pages



Irish studies


To some critics, to describe certain passages by Beckett as empty pits would be to assign them too much space and air. Levy (English, U. of British Columbia) understands well that critics have difficulty interpreting what may appear to be nothing but what he calls "formal brilliance." Instead of assigning Beckett's less-penetrable texts to the category of mystery, he seeks the great paradox of Beckett, which is the purpose of purposelessness, the understanding of life as the inability to begin that which is not yet ended or to end that which has not yet begun. After a review of critics that also serves as his introduction, Levy shows how Beckett's opacity hides an open wound carefully tended so it cannot be touched by healing, a construct in which all content is removed from experience except that consistent with the attitude registering it.
