"Room on. I was so happy that you started this wonderful conversation with a very direct question about politics and art. I happen to be one of those. All art is political types. Although there's lots of art with politics. I disagree with that. I so love. Of course but What about you. How do you think about that question. Yeah absolutely there is a lot of great arts. That's politically troubling. Or the product of people whose politics we might find abhorrent in our conversation mentioned both t s eliot and ezra pound who those because her case in point you have to hold certain contradictions in mind that a person could do bad things or think bad things but still make nice art or a book or film or what have you could propagate troubling ideas but still be beautiful absolutely to me. It's like one of the things in the nexus of factors that you consider right. There's like its aesthetic brilliant. Whatever it's project is and politics sort of weaves all within that it seldom the be all or the end all of why we should or shouldn't like or appreciate a worker artist. I feel like and also i think in a moment where we talk so much about cancellation right and sensitivity to work meeting certain philosophical standards. I don't think that's really useful. Either i think you still have to listen to wagner. Even if wagner has been co opted by the right rate. Well yeah. I mean you're talking to a guy who's my previous podcasts. For slate was all about shakespeare. And one of my favorite shakes comedies. Much ado about nothing contains the line if i do not love her. I am a jew so you know like as do i think there's all sorts of identity groups where you end up in a very bizarre relationship with texts from antiquity especially that you love. The political project of heavier. Poetry is clearly part of his creative process and i was fascinated that one thing we tried to do was to push him away from that to figure out other things that he was capable of as a poet and one of the poems that resulted from that is wonderful but it also felt discomfiting that a white creative writing professor was prevailing upon an immigrant poet to stop writing about the more heroin parts of his personal experience. What did you make of that. I think it makes a lot of sense with respect to own interest in the sensual right that she might nudge him in that particular direction. And i think. I can understand that. Because i myself responded to that particular poem of yours because it wasn't grappling directly with his experience of being an immigrant but was something more widely accessible to the reader. It was just showing off. He can do with words. I don't think that kind of caution is necessarily about inhibiting him from engaging with this material. I actually think it's about setting him free. Yeah totally and this might be because my first book is an oral history. But i loved that havi air borrowed from that form for his poetry. I really think a lot of interesting work and come out of stealing the tools of one form and adapting them to the one. You're working with like in my homework. I am so much more likely to find formal inspiration in a documentary or comic book or a play than in another work of prose nonfiction. For whatever reason do you think about this. Either with your students with your own writing absolutely all the time. When i teach writing i talk a lot about the sitcom as kind of perfect form. I think that wherever you find inspiration that salad and you need to accrue the tool that will help you get your work done you know. Part of why poetry in particular is so daunting to me is precisely what you're talking about if you think about elliott referencing the golden bough in the wasteland. That's academic papers do not poetry but of course poetry can do anything and every form ken. Poets have maybe known that for longer. Or maybe it's more inherent to the project of the poem but that's what makes them simple but it's also what makes them kind of incredible. Yeah and i really appreciated that. As havi air is transitioning to doing nonfiction however he's not like abandoning the strictures of that john r- either for example around factual accuracy impart. Maybe this is getting into the weeds but in the kind of mfa universe there is. This movement often led people sort of affiliated with poetry to do away with the idea that nonfiction has to be rigorous with the facts. I thought that it was really interesting to hear him talk about his memoir and progress and to hold that work up against the poems by talking about the work that way heavier kind of helped quell one of my initial concerns with reading unaccompanied which is reading heavier into the poetic. I who we meet on these pages. He helped me understand that that was an accurate way of reading but had a very different experience. Hearing him simply tells the story of how came to this country. I mean you heard in this conversation. I started crying just hearing him. Explain it to me directly to my face over consume so to speak to my face but the poems have a similar effect but that direct testimony i also found really powerful. So i think it's a way of showing you. They're sort of multiple paths leading to the same destination remind. That's a wonderful note on which to end this episode listeners.

Is it important to you for your book to be on the cover. It's important for me for the book to begin cover because my ego however, I have written books by book where my name has not been on the cover and I'll tell you straight years ago I met a guy and he had done some big shots book a business guy I forgot some corporate. Captain. and His name wasn't on it and I It didn't have as told tour with and I said to the ghost a man you're not book and he said I don't care a true ghost ship care and I thought to myself at the time I hope to get their one dick. Because I did see it as the truth. That sort of how I see I I've been trying to understand the logic i. always assumed that the really really successful rich people could afford to keep the ghost riders name off the book, and if you're if the goes his name was on the book, it was either because they couldn't afford to to keep them off or if it goes rider was so big in such a big name that it would actually draw more people to read it..

The greatest minds of this lost generation and fostered an artistic culture that would resonate for decades. It's it was during these years as argued with Ezra pound drank with James Joyce and studied under Gertrude. Stein that Hemingway's signature style came into existence stance. Hemingway himself later described it as the iceberg or theory of omission instead of diving deep into the emotions the romantics or or engaging in deep psychological deconstruction of characters hemingway brought his journalistic skill of brevity to the page by saying the absolute bare minimum about out characters and crafting simple description of setting and plot. Hemingway believed he could focus the reader's attention onto filling out the outlines themselves so basically Gli. He believed that by showing as little as possible. The audience would actually be able to perceive the emotional enormity of esteems stories to give them a spiny sense for detecting protecting the full iceberg. That is human existence. Hemingway style perfectly sinked with the modernistic artistic movement of time putting together the transatlantic antic review with Ezra pound and others. Hemingway began releasing his short stories. His first story Indian camp was about a boy forced to watch his father. Perform an emergency agency c-section on a native American woman themes of death life and women were already at the forefront of his mind. The modernist audience responded very well so so much. So that after befriending F Scott Fitzgerald who had just found great success with the Great Gatsby. Hemingway decided that a novel was also his next mountain to climb on his professional. Life was not the only thing influx Hadley was a lively companion for Ernest in these European days and they would often travel with friends is to pimp blown a Spain for the festivity of the bullfights they had their first child in nineteen. twenty-three named John Hadley Nick Noor.

He found himself increasingly at odds with his motherly mentor. This initial dispute dispute evolved into a decade-long scandal regarding who truly coined the term loss generation young vain and arrogant and his new-found dominance of the local scene. Hemingway was happy to claim it for himself in front of the press and as he wrapped up work on his first novel the Sun also rises inspired by Hadley and his travels to Pamplona and channeling the weariness and Philistine nature of the loss generation. Hemingway found a stronger source of support from a friend named Pauline pfeiffer. We're Hadley Hadley hoped. Ernest would be more selective and cautious in his choice of publisher. Pauline thought the novel needed to be released as soon as possible. So earnest took the first offer given to him followed quickly by a divorce. Order from Hadley. Hemingway was married to pauline within months of a separation old ernest. Never want to rush into things. All of this occurred as the sun also rises became a sensation. It contained many elements considered scandalous for the time it detailed the excessive lifestyle of the lost generation. They're drinking partying and sex in fact. The novel drew criticism from his own friends as hemingway had clearly based the characters and their dirty little secrets on people. Well he knew Hemingway's mother was not a fan either hoping he would go back to the less sensationalist pursuit of journalism. Yeah on the world. Stage it struck a modernist dischord critic Henry.

Sumer ISM women cut their hair. They smoked they drank. They were sexually liberated. The average American had more money than ever before to spend and they chose to do so on jazz cars ready to wear clothes home. Appliances and illegal consumption of alcohol.

Hemingway met a beautiful woman eight years his senior at one of these ostentatious gatherings twenty nine year old had me. Richardson was a talented musician. Who seem to lose sensuality? Hemingway was immediately drawn to her and she was equally taken with him in less than a year. The couple decided to marry and start their lives over in Paris France. Paris in the nineteen twenties was known as is an artist's playground. The on the four or crazy years in French were coming to ahead which meant cultural social and artistic collaboration specifically among the you hear the rent was lower the booze was legal and the young artists were not only accepted but encouraged to experiment and thrive. It was exactly the environment where a burgeoning author like Ernest. Hemingway could flourish the newlyweds. Only words began their new lives in a meager apartment. With no running water they survived on heavily inheritance and Hemingway's job as a European correspondent with a Toronto Star. Hadley was Hemingway's biggest supporter. She believed without a doubt. The Hemingway would become the novelist he aspired are to be. She constantly validated. His ideas encouraged his ambitious endeavors in even worked as his assistant throughout the process. The only person more confident than they authors skill was hemingway himself. He truly believed he was destined for greatness. He was charismatic. Intelligent and open minded. These qualities brought him into circles of some of the most influential artists of all all time. Sure would anderson a fellow novelist and a close friend of Hemingway introduced him to his friend. Gertrude Stein up a progressive novelist poet and playwright intern. Hadley and Hemingway were granted an invitation to twenty seven Rue de Fleurus the infamous. Home of Gertrude. Her Partner Alice B Toke lists and their notorious alone there. She hosted some of the most influential artists artists of the time Cosso Patisse F Scott Fitzgerald and Ezra pound all drank and collaborated in her home. She began to mentor. The young and hungry hemingway but felt that many of his short stories still had too much description and unfortunately none Donovan was very good. She pleaded with her new apprentice to start over and to concentrate on his work and she gave thorough notes about how he could improve move he spent hours wandering the halls of Gertrude home as she took a pen to his fiction. He stared at her collection of Picasso's Monet's season seasons. Hemingway wanted to be an author in the way that these men were painters he respected their ability to sustain define emotion and through Palette and tone. He only hoped his own literature would reflect a similar level of mastery with this inspiration. He started writing a story about his time at war but that novel never reached completion. He left it behind in Paris when his paper dispatched him to work from Switzerland for months. Hemingway Road Hadley letters begging her to come visit him. He finally convinced her when he I was introduced to the fame. Investigative Journalist Lincoln Steffens while working at the peace conference in Geneva. Stephens wanted to see Hemingway's work. It was the perfect opportunity to send for heavily and his manuscripts before setting out she packed every piece of Hemingway's writing into a suitcase including the beginning of his war novel then when she boarded that fateful train all of Hemingway's manuscripts witnessing when Hemingway greeted his wife at the train station. In Switzerland Hadley was frantic. She searched for the right words and individually told her husband that his life's work had been stolen. It was all her fault at first. Hemingway laughed after the ridiculous claim after all he had carbon copies of his compositions back in Paris but had lead tearfully confessed that she'd rated every corner of his office. She brought everything she could possibly find including the carbons in a fit of panic in disbelief. This belief hemingway raced back to Paris. Hoping that it wasn't true when he arrived at their apartment he discovered that had these remarks or correct years of hard work and creativity were lost in an instant. It was as if a piece of hemingway died with the loss of those manuscripts scripts the author felt that he had nothing left to show for himself. Nothing laughed that he was proud of. He declared that he would never right again coming up hemingway puts out a reward for his lost materials and is forced forced to reinvent himself now back to the story in one thousand nine hundred twenty two twenty three year old. Hemingway was on assignment in Geneva Neva Switzerland and invited his thirty one year old wife Hadley to visit. She gathered all of his previous works only to lose them during the train. Trine right over. The couple had plans to travel onto Schambori Switzerland after their time in Geneva but according to a stamp in his passport hemingway returned return to Paris on December third to search for the lust material. He tore through his apartment frantically checking every cabinet habit and drawer in the home but Hadley had packed it. All the writer later recounted his emotions around this loss in a short story story titled a strange country. He claimed I felt almost as though I could not breathe when I saw there. Really were no folders with originals. Your folders with typed copies are folders with carbons to pour salt in the wound. Hadley had also packed all of his stationery pens pencils envelopes and postage coupons. He later joke that Hadley was trying to put me out of business a week. After Hemingway's anyways tragic loss. His colleagues Lincoln Steffens and Guy Hickok traveled to Paris to help him investigate the theft. They searched the city's lost and found bound. Bureaus and repeatedly checked in with geared Dalil after hitting multiple dead ends Hemingway's friends encouraged him to put an ad in the newspaper newspaper. But William Byrd a fellow journalist told hemingway that it wouldn't be worth the cost of running the notice unless he planned to offer a substantial Stanford reward hemingway proceeded with the recommendation but his finances were tight his reward of one hundred fifty francs equivalent to a one hundred and fifty dollars. Today wasn't enough to entice anyone to return the stolen beliefs. Stephens eventually sat the author down and told him I'm afraid. This stuff is lost him. Hemingway succumbed to defeat and gave up on finding the lost manuscripts but moving on was incredibly difficult. He turned to some of the new friends he'd made in Paris for comfort. One of those companions was fellow. American ex-pat poet and critic as pound in January of Nineteen Twenty three twenty four year old. Hemingway wrote to thirty eight year old. Ezra looking for guidance he said I suppose you heard about the loss of my Juvenille. IAEA you naturally would say good etc.. But don't say it to me yet. Reached that mood as we tried to. Brighton Hemingway's dark mindset framing the event as an act of God. He believed that an artist early work was meant to be forgotton. Ezra advised hemingway to recreate whatever was worth salvaging aging from memory. But Hemingway had a hard time accepting this advice considering his most prized piece was a novel reflecting upon his his time at war. His recollections simply wouldn't suffice to recreate those intimate details. He'd already started to repress. In an effort to re-inspire the author Ezra invited Hadley and Hemingway to his home in Rapallo Italy in the early spring spring of Nineteen twenty-three the retreat was supposed to encourage hemingway but he failed to accomplish anything new during the trip. The legendary author author felt he was hitting rock bottom. He was certain that this was the end of his short-lived writing career. What he didn't realise was there was one one piece of his old writings still to be discovered a letter that actually held the key to getting the author back on his feet in the spring ring of Nineteen twenty-three a short story titled Mild Man had been returned to Hemingway from a magazine editor along with a rejection letter? Uh the envelope was buried. Deep in a pile of old mail still unopened in Hemingway's Paris apartment until he returned home and reviewed his pending correspondences as a last ditch effort. He shared the peace with an editor from New England. Who happened to be seeking fiction Shen for an annual compilation? The editor loved the story so much that he went on to publish it. Mild man was included in the best short stories. Stories of one thousand nine hundred ninety three. Finally Hemingway was taking control of his destiny.

How does that compare to the general population? According to one widely accepted study around forty six percent of Americans experienced some sort of mental disorder during their lifetimes, so artists and writers are considerably higher than average. But Simon and found that scientists have a considerably lower tendency for mental disorder only around twenty eight percent, if you include all creative types in the tally fine Minton found that they have lower rates of mental illness than non creative people creative behavior is in fact, often a marker for good mental health. So if you're looking for some magic formula for the relationship between creativity. And mental illness. I don't take there's one formula for that. Walter Isaacson again, you know, Ben, Franklin was a happy well adjusted get even though he was a run away from his brother who tried to keep them as an apprentice, Leonardo da Vinci was pretty tortured, you know, had all sorts of manic periods of his life where he was both depressed and elated somebody like Einstein deeply focused Steve Jobs had both demons and angels inside of his ad. So I don't think you can make one blanket pattern to say creative. People have some special mental challenges or abilities..

"I'll leave it up to you to decide whether Elvis Costello belongs on the creative genius list. In any case, there's one characteristic that we almost universally associate with such people that they're tortured, either they burn so bright that they flee out early die young or is spend long lives racked by schizophrenia or depression, or at least garden variety neurosis maybe the most famous. Most defining example, this is Van Gogh, those nervous breakdowns self mutilation and eventual suicide. Dean, Simon is looked at the incidence of mental illness in creative types through the ages. And there is a correlation between creativity and mental illness, but depends on the kind of creativity you're talking about. There's a relationship between how much constraint the creative genius has operate under and their tendency towards mental illness. Scientists operates under a lot of constraints. Scientists has to come up with their is consistent with the facts, has to be logically coherent at has to fit in with what previous scientists have been doing and so forth. And in our culture, artists don't operate that way picky sends to the romantic period. Anything goes, but there are in times and places where the arts have extremely high constraints and. Goes on Japanese haiku, for example, is a very, very constrained form. You have a certain number of syllables to work with. You also have a certain number of themes that are considered to be more appropriate for haiku. So what's interesting is that as you get into Demane that are very, very constrained, mental illness tend to be very rare. And then if you go into more and more unconstrained forms of expression than you also do it at risk of having more mental illness as well as having, you know, all sorts of horrible experiences in childhood or adult leci- and there's a study published on this where you can compare Nobel prizes in physics with Nobel prizes in literature, and they're not cut from the same cloth at all. I think if you look at American winners in literature, most of them are hall IX. Yeah, alcohol, they. They often dropped out of school. They, you know, they had tremendous ups and downs and in their education if even finished formal education, whereas the the physicists came from perfect, family backgrounds, professional families, nothing happened. Nobody died. Excellence in physics is building within a domain that must be mastered. I in that requires a certain set of resources and skills and ability to color within the lines. Yes, right. And you and your spec to stay within the box because the box actually defines what is science. So interesting. I published an article in nature a few years ago, but they wrote their own title and they deliberately provocative, they said, after iron Stein. Genius is extinct. Whoa, and Amelia. I got inundated all sorts of mail emails mostly from people, some some who agreed with me. And did you take credit for writing the headline in those cases where they agreed? Yeah, right. Exactly. But others said, wrote and said, what about me? You know, and they said, I'm a genius and an, I'm after an Stein. In fact, I've actually disproven ever everything that Stein got credit for and I'm still waiting to get my Nobel prize and they'll publish this stuff on the web, usually their own personal website and you look at it and it violates all the constraints of science. I mean, basic thing is you have to pay high school how your bre, for example. I know that seems really obsessive, but you have to high school algebra. Well, I mean, we're laughing about it, but on the other hand in language, let's say, right, you can break language. You can go way outside the bounds of formal English or any other language, and it can be considered poetry, but I see that scientists at different ballpark, right, and a case of poetry.
