Thinking Tragically, & Accurately

Depero-Lamp-Candle-Still-Life963 words

If personal anecdote is poor evidence of a more universal truth, then fictional anecdote is even worse, and the foundation of a great novel deserves better. So I propose that there is a place for direct, sustained, quantitive analysis/argument in literary fiction. The main characters and their immediate story need not, and absolutely should not, be touched by this, but the establishment of setting is also important, and this ought to be done, well, with direct, sustained, quantitive analysis/argument.

Remembering P. R. Stephensen:
November 20, 1901 to May 28, 1965

P. R. Stephensen, circa 1934

227 words

From 1942 to 1945, he was interned without trial for his pro-German and pro-Japanese sympathies.

Early in his career as a publisher, Stephensen championed the works of Nietzsche, D. H. Lawrence, and Aleister Crowley. Read more …

Chris Millis’ Small Apartments

smallapartmentsfilm1,095 words

Chris Millis
Small Apartments
Vancouver: Anvil Press, 2013

At first glance Small Apartments – the novel turned screenplay for the movie by the same name — is the usual pop culture fluff that generates only minor interest from the avid, serious reader. But a second look reveals much more.

Remembering Ezra Pound:
October 30, 1885 to November 1, 1972

Pound2691 words

“A slave is one who waits for someone else to free him.” — Ezra Pound

One of the ongoing projects of the North American New Right is the recovery of our tradition. One does not have to go too far back before one discovers that every great European thinker and artist is a “Right Wing extremist” by today’s standards.

What is even more remarkable is the number of great 20th century figures who belong in our camp as well. Read more …

Tom Wolfe
Back to Blood: A Novel
New York: Little, Brown and Company, 2012

Tom Wolfe’s Back to Blood is a quick read despite its 700-page length, and absorbing. Of his four novels, The Bonfire of the Vanities (1987) about race tensions in New York City is the most famous, but his second, A Man in Full (1998), is better. Read more …
