Susan Sontag, 'the greatest public intellectual of the twentieth century' (Maria Popova), who coined the term 'aesthetic consumerism,' on how art and beauty could be understood. Susan Sontag on Beauty vs. Interestingness, Brain Pickings, Apr 22, 2014. #art #beauty #aesthetics #consumerism #aestheticconsumerism #interistingness
Susan Sontag "What had been a virtue of the concept became its liability. Beauty, which once seemed vulnerable because it was too general, loose, porous, was revealed as — on the contrary — excluding too much. Discrimination, once a positive faculty (meaning refined judgment, high standards, fastidiousness), turned negative: it meant prejudice, bigotry, blindness to the virtues of what was not identical with oneself. "

Who would we be if we could not sympathize with those who are not us or ours? Who would we be if we could not forget ourselves, at least some of the time? Who would we be if we could not learn? Forgive? Become something other than we are?” Susan Sontag on literature and freedom – timelessly fantastic read:

Tuesday. Dearest, I feel certain that I am going mad again. I feel we can't go through another of those terrible times. And I shan't recover this time. I begin to hear voices, and I can't concentrate. So I am doing what seems the best thing to do. You have given me the greatest possible happiness. You have been in every way all that anyone could be. I don't think two people could have been happier till this terrible disease came. I can't fight any longer. I know that I am spoiling your life, that without me you could work. And you will I know. You see I can't even write this properly. I can't read. What I want to say is I owe all the happiness of my life to you. You have been entirely patient with me and incredibly good. I want to say that — everybody knows it. If anybody could have saved me it would have been you. Everything has gone from me but the certainty of your goodness. I can't go on spoiling your life any longer.I don't think two people could have been happier than we have been. V.

Francisco de Blas home, inspired by the poetry of Luis Cernuda In 1999, Literature professor Francisco de Blas hired architect Alberto Campo Baeza to build him a home in Sevilla la Nueva, Madrid, Spain pressing into his hands a copy of Luis Cenuda’s complete poems for inspiration. Cenuda’s work is infused with themes of dreams, freedom, sweeping landscapes and the contrast between the internal and external life, and we think (if we squint) we can totally see all those in this lovely home.

Worth Reading, Book Lolita, Books I Ve, Books Books, Favorite Books, Vladimir Nabokov
If you can get over the subject-matter of this book (it involves a very young girl who has a sexual relationship with her step-father) you will find unique and beautiful use of the English language. Worth reading, although you will feel disgusted for 95% of the time you have the book open.
Think you're a good writer? Try writing a novel, not in your native tongue but in your second language. That's what Vladimir Nabokov did.
Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov. I majored in literature in college and of the *zillion* books I read over the years of obtaining the degree, I found this to be one of the "dirtiest" books I have ever read and with little to no profanity or explicit dialogue or description. The use of typography was also unique and the first time I'd seen it used to invoke characterization. Complete worth the read and no movie yet has been "good enough" in my opinion.

Instead reading, enthusiasts everywhere are building “little libraries” that resemble large birdhouses and setting them up in their yards and businesses/Non c'è bisogno di costruire un edificio costoso per ospitare una #biblioteca Invece di leggere, appassionati di tutto il mondo stanno costruendo "piccole #biblioteche" che assomigliano a grandi nicchie e collocandole ove preferiscano.
