Lookin' 'round see which way the wind blow...
stupid sentence alert p.112 ! Ha Ha
there are a few of them
Otherwise Fowlie wrote a very insightful book.
Especially on the general observations
of poets & visionaries
towards the end--I think
therefore I roll
o i think were on the same page
way things are going
only grave site i'll be visiting
is my own
rock in peace
That's not the point. Why can't people just accept his genius? Let the guy BE!
O yeah I got it
never go Rimbaud
beyond my zen
moves my pen
It's the other way round: He says that Rimbaud will outlive Jim. "But the pilgrimage to Charleville may last longer than the pilgrimage to Paris." (p. 9) - We'll see ...
I think I found the sentence on page 9
Jim will outlive Rimbaud!!
wallace fowlie was teaching rimbaud at a university and when he had questions about jim or the doors, he would engage his students in conversation. he even went to see the oliver stone movie with some of his students. after the movie they went to a restaurant to discuss it and he said that he felt that "it might not be a success". kind of insightful, i think.
in the 60s, after wallace fowlie wrote an english translation of rimbaud. he received a note from jim morrison:
Dear Wallace Fowlie,
Just wanted to say thanks for doing the Rimbaud translation. I needed it because I don't read French that easily. . . .I am a rock singer and your book travels around with me.
at the time, fowlie said he didn't recognize the name. but, he added jim's letter to the rest that he had given to a library. the book is interesting. fowlie discusses how rimbaud influenced jim and his writing. and, since i am a novice regarding rimbaud, it also gives me an idea as to who this rebel was and why so many are influenced by his poetry.
I just began reading "Rimbaud and Jim Morrison. The Rebel as Poet" by Wallace Fowlie. On page 9 I came across a stupid sentence, so that the book fell off my hands. Need some days before picking it up again.
Like where your head's at.
