Joseph Brodsky ´s reading list

6 January 2021

twitter: @eugenio_fouz

 

extract: 

“Russian poet and Soviet dissident Joseph Brodsky immediately rose to the highest academic echelon when he arrived in America in 1972. By all accounts, the autodidact held his classes to a high standard, frequently dismissing any student arguments about literary greatness unless they centered on Milosz, Lowell, or Auden.

Monica Partridge, a former student in his class, told Open Culture, “I took a poetry class with [Joseph Brodsky] at Mount Holyoke College my freshman year… It was all 19th [century] Russian poetry, and he would give us four pages of poems to memorize overnight. We would have to come in the next [morning] and transcribe the poems we had memorized. Very Russian.”

No less impressive was the list of books that Brodsky distributed to Partridge’s class.

1. Bhagavad Gita
2. Mahabharata
3. Gilgamesh
4. The Old Testament
5. Homer: Iliad, Odyssey
6. Herodotus: Histories
7. Sophocles: Plays
8. Aeschylus: Plays
9. Euripides: Plays (Hippolytus, The Bachantes, Electra, The Phoenician Women)
10. Thucydides: The Peloponnesian War
11. Plato: Dialogues
12. Aristotle: Poetics, Physics, Ethics, De Anima
13. Alexandrian Poetry: The Greek Anthology
14. Lucretius: On the Nature of Things
15. Plutarch: Lives [presumably Parallel Lives]
16. Virgil: Aeneid, Bucolics, Georgics
17. Tacitus: Annals
18. Ovid: Metamorphoses, Heroides, Amores
19. The New Testament
20. Suetonius: The Twelve Caesars
21. Marcus Aurelius: Meditations

Nora Ephron´s fresh style

26 December 2020

twitter: @eugenio_fouz

-@tumblr-

I have just read a collection of opinion articles reunited in a book-Crazy Salad– written by Nora Ephron. The texts are cool, full of anecdotes and literature.

Ephron deals with feminism, sexuality, journalism writing

Read some of  the excerpts I took from the book:

A few words about breasts
I have to begin with a few words about androgyny. In grammar school, in the fifth and sixth grades, we were all tyrannized by a rigid set of rules that supposedly determined whether we were boys or girls. The episode of Huckleberry Finn where Huck is disguised as a girl and gives himself away by the way he threads a needle and catches a ball-that kind of thing. We learned the way you sat, crossed your legs, held a cigarette, and looked at your nails-the way you did these things instinctively was absolute proof of your sex” …
p.12

Fantasies
…” I spend a great deal of my energy these days trying to fit feminism into marriage, or vice versa- I´m never sure which way the priorities lie; it depends on my mood-but as truly committed as I am to the movement and as violent as I have become toward people who knock it, I think it is unfair to dismiss these men. They deserve some kind of answer. Okay. The answer is, nobody knows what happens to sex after liberation. It´s a big mystery” …
p.22

The girls in the office
I have not looked at The Best of Everything since I first bought it-in paperback-ten years ago, but I have a perverse fondness for it. In case somehow missed it, The Best of Everything was a novel by Rona Jaffe about the lives of four, or was it five, single women in New York; it was pretty good trash, as trash goes, which is not why I am fond of it. I liked it because it seemed to me that it caught perfectly the awful essence of being a single woman in a big city” …
p.31

Vaginal politics
Vaginal Politics covers a wide range of health subjects: the New York abortion scene, drugs, psychoanalysis, breast cancer, venereal disease, the law, the growth of the consumer health movement in America. At times, the tone is indignant to the point of heavy handedness” …
p.59

Crazy ladies
Washington is a city of important men and the women they married before they grew up. Is that how the saying goes? Something like that, anyway” …
p.116

Conundrum
As I suppose everyone knows by now, James Morris was four years old and sitting under the piano listening to his mother play Sibelius when he was seized by the irreversible conviction that the ought to have been born a girl
p.143

Lartigue -vía Paolo-streito1264 on @tumblr-

The font I have chosen to keep surnames and names on an excel list is Andale Mono, size 10. Easy to read, light.

All names on the list are obviously fictitious. I wish I had had Tom Wolfe in my classes. On second thoughts, I see him as a teacher of journalism or literature to me
