Crash Beautiful, Eye
When you are old and grey and full of sleep,/ And nodding by the fire,/ take down this book,/And slowly read,/and dream of the soft look/Your eyes had once,/ and of their shadows deep;/How many loved your moments of glad grace,/And loved your beauty with love false or true,/But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you,/And loved the sorrows of your changing face —W.B. Yeats, excerpt "When You Are Old"

Kurt Vonnegut's letter to a high school English student. This man will always be my literary hero!
In 2006 Ms. Lockwood, an English teacher at Xavier High School, asked her students to write a letter to a famous author. She wanted them discuss the author’s work and ask for advice. Kurt Vonnegut (1922 – 2007) was the only one to write back and his advice is worth reading. If you can’t…
Writing Lab: Kurt Vonnegut's eight essentials for a good short story. | Rebelle Society
Kurt Vonnegut. I recall that some writer was shocked to find out that Vonnegut wasn't a perfect soul and happiest man who lived. That's not why I admire him, it's because he lived through a hell in WWII most people can't fathom in a nightmare, he suffered setbacks and emotional lows in his life, and maintained a really logical and appropriately sardonic view. A genius..

Walt Whitman, by Thomas Eakins, 1891. When Walt Whitman first published “Leaves of Grass” in 1855, he found the source for American vitality in a democracy rooted in the connection between its people and nature. Whitman’s refusal to accept the existence of boundaries and limits on the body, as well as the mind, is the most radical statement ever of American individualism. Expansively omnisexual in his writings, Whitman spent the Civil War years and after with his lover, Peter Doyle, a Confederate deserter. Inspired by the comradeship engendered between men under fire, Whitman celebrated love and affection between men in poems he collected under the titles “Drum Taps” and “Calamus.” Just as society’s attitudes were consolidating into rigid division that outlawed the homosexual, Whitman’s poetry and his life proclaimed that the possibilities of desire were not so easily characterized and contained.
A classic portrait of Ernest Hemingway.

loveyourpoetry: “All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they had really happened and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you: the good and the bad, the ecstasy, the remorse and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was. If you can get so that you can give that to people, then you are a writer.” - Ernest Hemingway
Quote: 'The best people possess a feeling for beauty, the courage to take risks, the discipline to tell the truth, the capacity for sacrifice. Ironically, their virtues make them vulnerable; they are often wounded, sometimes destroyed' ~ Ernest Hemingway ~

A further testament to the death grip of all things Poe on popular culture is that no English-language poet, with the exception of Shakespeare, has been depicted in television and cinema more often than Poe.
