the african-american poet, academic and activist, amiri baraka, who died yesterday at the age of 79, was an intellectual troublemaker, to be sure; and that's a compliment. • via the guardian • rest in peace, A.B.
LeRoi Jones, who changed his name to Amiri Baracka and was a militant, a racist, and a "tireless agitator". A quote: "We want poems that kill….assassin poems, poems that shoot guns/wrestle cops into alleys/and take their weapons leaving them dead/with tongues pulled out and sent to Ireland". LeRoi bit the dust on Jan. 9, 2014 and now his mouth is finally shut.

Amiri Baraka: Controversial Author And Activist Dies At 79 http://huffpost.com/us/entry/4570912
Amiri Baraka Dead: Controversial Author And Activist Dies At 79 Amiri Baraka, the militant man of letters and tireless agitator whose blues-based, fist-shaking poems, plays and criticism made him a provocative and groundbreaking force in American culture, has died. He was 79. Perhaps no writer of the 1960s and '70s was more radical or polarizing than the former LeRoi Jones, and no one did more to extend the political debates of the civil rights era to the world of the arts.
Amiri Baraka ~ Transformed from Beat Caravan of Allen Ginsberg & Kerouac to Leader of Black Arts Movement; Ally of Black Power, rejecting liberal optimism of early '60s & intensified divide over how & whether black artists should take on social issues. Scorning art for art's sake & pursuit of black-white unity, Barak was part of philosophy calling for teaching Black Art & Black History & producing works bluntly calling for revolution. ~By HILLEL ITALIE 01/09/14 AP http://www.huffingtonpost.com

Mary Shelley’s handwritten poem “Absence”, on the death of her husband. "Ah! he is gone — and I alone; How dark and dreary seems the time! ‘Tis Thus, when the glad sun is flown, Night rushes o’er the Indian clime. Is there no star to cheer this night No soothing twilight for the breast? Yes, Memory sheds her fairy light, Pleasing as sunset’s golden west. ... "

Ah! he is gone — and I alone; How dark and dreary seems the time! ‘Tis Thus, when the glad sun is flown, Night rushes o’er the Indian clime. Is there no star to cheer this night No soothing twilight for the breast? Yes, Memory sheds her fairy light, Pleasing as sunset’s golden west. And hope of dawn — Oh! brighter far Than clouds that in the orient burn; More welcome than the morning star Is the dear thought — he will return!

Mary Shelley, “Absence” ~ "Ah! he is gone — and I alone; How dark and dreary seems the time! ‘Tis Thus, when the glad sun is flown, Night rushes o’er the Indian clime.” ~ The Frankenstein author wrote this heartbreaking poetic tribute to her husband, Percy Bysshe Shelley, which was published eight years after his death in 1822. Women were prohibited from attending funerals in pre-Victorian England due to health concerns, so she never had a chance to bid him a final farewell.

This right here is the reason I don't let people read my poetry. It's just more personal than prose.

Day Jobs of the Poets... strange but true, in every single case. I have been... cook by night... And in early early days, deliverer of flowers (for florist) and believe it or not, proof-reader of the NYC telephone book! (Was 16. Long pre computers.)
amandaonwriting: It’s almost the end of National Poetry Month. Grant Snider of Incidental Comics illustrates the day jobs of 12 famous poets. Purchase your poster here
INCIDENTAL COMICS: Day Jobs of the Poets--Prints are $15. An excellent motivating poster to hang above one's writing desk.
The inimitable Grant Snider strikes again, with the day jobs of famous poets – including Jack Kerouac (railroad worker), Charles Bukowski (mailman), Emily Dickinson (cat-keeper), and T. S. Eliot (bank clerk.)
INCIDENTAL COMICS: Day Jobs of the Poets "This comic is factual, but it requires a couple clarifications: Wallace Stevens was an executive at an insurance company, not your average insurance salesman. And there's no evidence that Emily Dickinson liked cats, but her sister Lavinia was cat-obsessed. So Emily must have been forced to cat-sit occasionally."
