That's ibkr great. okay. I'm gonna read from So the final The the collection that barron published after the dream songs was called love and fame and it was a great change of style and it was not much loved when it was published.

"Interesting Little exchange where he but he he would ring addison late at night during the period. He was writing dream songs. I grew to expect drunken sometimes telephone calls in the course of which she'd read from work in progress. I can't recall how many calls they were but usually wanted my reaction to use of dialect by preferences for idiomatic rendering. But i wasn't about to let the poaching of what he was saying. The interrupted by the dictates of my ear for afro-american speech besides watching him transform elements of the minstrel shown to poetry was too fascinating fascinating. Too and amusing was my suspicion that berryman was costing me as long distance. mr interlocutor. was it mr tambo. Whose temporary role was that of responding critically to his mr bones and huffy henry. I think what you get. When ellison goes on to meet him and ultimately he feels he feels uncomfortable. And it's interesting adrienne. Rich kind of gives him a pretty much a free pass on on the black face as well. But you do when you read tony morrison and you re claudia rankine. It's a sam. Says it is problematic. And i think he kind of was doing it because he knew that it was problematic. Generate says that black faces the supreme dialect posture of this country. Going straight to the roots of app madness. As i said he's not pretending to be blackie's pretending to be a white man pretending to be a blattman and some some part of that is is a kind of deep insecurity About about whiteness. In about his position in the world. I think is very important. That you that you say to people live. That isn't element in these folk poetry that you find comfortable. I suspect you said. I think he kind of intended it to be uncomfortable. I think the minstrel see element is fascinating. Because i've been talking about. I'm fascinated by a by berman's atchoo performance performance is a big part of what berryman is bound the fact that he comes to preeminence in the i wall how ian age of electronic celebrity is not a coincidence. I keep returning to this. But the level of his fame is the fame that and the type of his fame and the effect on his posthumous rhett reputation. Things that would not have happened in the nineteen thirties..

Famous says when he got what he wants aids the poems killing This is Bello talking about how he felt about the end of his friend jomon life and the ways in which he felt berryman who come to the end of the road. It was partly that he felt that he was dying I would guess that That he had this some unremitting approaching death that he felt it through. The ruinous is the body that When you heard john cough when you saw john pass out when you saw his color you knew that he was a dying man. Furthermore you knew that he john knew it killed himself because this despair was too great to be contained the chief illusion i suppose if nourished him when he could at any time. Start over. but i don't think that he believed in it. In perhaps in the end he saw it as a kind of grim joke. That one could begin once more a new with a new house. A new place.

Hollywood's essay dumped behrman alcohol which led to a big debate about how of what berryman did was directly inspired by alcohol. And how much was facilitated by alco would he have written in that way had he notes been carrying around that particular a monkey on his back for the whole the nineteen fifties and sixties is with that people say that he led drinking from dylan thomas that he wasn't a big during current i think of his relationship to suicide as a sort of afo and sometimes a friendly foam something new completely intrinsic to who he was how he thought how he lived how he loved for his father committed suicide when he was held.

"The local the morris gorham book talks about the local of wonderful book as a kind of modern version of that has a history of pubs in it us lovely. It's a sort of celebration of of what. Pubs historically have functioned as from the development notes from from from the medieval beginnings right through to the nineteenth century where they were finally enough. They were meeting places for revolutionaries through to today. Where they you know. We've been through the gastro pub revolution. But they're also essential to the development of popular music. Live music lots and lots of bands started in pubs as well. That's a handsome looking. The is a really beautiful looking book. Maybe i'll just read this little paragraph and it's something i believe and i've got as i have a village pub and i'm continually kind of berating The the very poor brewery who own it for not doing more but you know pub in the end it will always be about community will always be a space. I mean you know you're talking about the the thing you kinda behave in pablo. You behave on social media. You have to. You have to learn to modify yourself your opinions. Your ideas in order for community to happen That doesn't mean you can't have disagreements. You can have very strong disagreements. But there's there is sort of a civilizing influence. I think the has had and they they're Almost all the stories you hear about pubs nowadays negative sanga. I'm gonna read you a little bit from From the introduction.

With an aesthetic that is simple and unselfconsciously they have frequently appeared and former highstreet buildings rather than homes and architecturally are hard to distinguish from the rest of a run of shops generally lacking a seller.

"And the book With him she gives him the lost world. And it's up to you a reader listener whether you agree with this on what you make it. So i'm just gonna read what eric lands that he says in john. You're gonna find this particularly interesting. I think Lindsay's view is that the revolution is still happening that the move. Communism take hundreds of years and it's an incremental revolution. They'll never be a moment where it takes place it's going it's happening now here in twenty twenty one. This is what he says. Lanza zeti pours another drink lights. Another cigarette settled back in his chair. And says george orwell left a legacy of despair he came back from spain and said communism and fascism of the same oh well said all revolution ends in totalitarianism and if you want to see a picture of the future imagine a boot forever stamping on a human face. Well as far as i'm concerned that was the worst thing that could have happened in the post war world because he helped disintegrate the left more than any government policy of the cold war. And what happens. When the left disintegrates the reut instantly moves up to fill the vacuum and this fifty years ago. Eric lens as he was saying this everybody. Despair leads to anneke an anneke leads to repression and fascism and in this country. The despair of the left led directly to vietnam. Nixon and watergate. Look let me explain it to you this way. You're a feminist right. You hate what freud said about women you see. The old man was wrong wrong. Wrong about women. But does that mean you get rid of freud of cool snow. That's like throwing the baby out with the booth. Bucer freud was wrong on this wrong on. That may be wrong in every particular. But he was right. Well it's the same in spades with marks. He was wrong on this wrong on that wrong. And a lot of things but my body was right and to throw out mark's along with totalitarianism is to spit on the future. Dig our own graves and full roy. In and the revolution will come. It will come off the roll zeti finishes with a mocking grin. It is no accident. Come raid that. You and i sitting here today talking about these things. That's wonderful as we say in so on social media. I'll just leave that the people to think about as a really great book. So that's three out three for. Vivian gonna give me absolutely love that fans fascinating and relevant joe mafia i've been reading A book Called public house a cultural and social history of the london pub. And i've been reading it and looking at it as much as reading it. It say is a really beautifully produced book that came out of an academic calls at the department of architecture at kingston school where the editors of the book had been teaching basically the function of pub within within community in the architecture. Pups david night and christina montero. So it's it's two things. It's a gaza tier of one hundred twenty brilliant london pubs from the old victorian gin palaces through to the the latest kind of micro pups but it's also collection of essays by some wonderful writers An intro from city. Count the mac but it's got Go essays on I'm not read a little bit in a moment. From jennifer lacy allen's lifestyle on the the bell the lost detail. Luke turner Bob stanley remember that..

"One of the themes go work is the idea that hub parents were communists. She was a pioneering feminist One of the ideas in her work is the is discussion of how political social movements religious movements stoltze from a position of emancipation and over group. Emancipation of the group an end up oppressing the individual that what starts as the thing that liberates you an ideology that can liberate you becomes dogma and once it becomes dogma. It becomes a tool of repression for the individual and the romance american. Communism is a look at the history of the communist policy in the us. The twentieth century first published in the mid nineteen seventies and digging. Go nick went interviews about fifty or sixty communist so former communists many of whom were in their fifties sixties or seventies many of whom would actually fort in certain revolutions. All been through the mccarthy witch hunts or a never recanted or entirely recanted and said to them and try to map. The process of their emotional lives through the periods of that either being members of the communist party or ex members of communist party. What she finds they have in common is that regardless of whether they are still communists whether they left the communist party thirty years earlier whether they're angrier ever having been associated with communism. They all seem to say that they never felt so alive as when they felt they were making a difference when they felt they were part of a group striving for a common goal and when they had a way of looking at the world which helped them make sense of it and whether they still saw the world like that or whether they disagreed with it they seem to have this thing in common that they they were alive and they were fully alive when they were communists and for that we could substitute woods christian or feminist or fascist or the book is about communism. And it's not about communism. So i i really really enjoyed it. Found it really stimulating. And i just want to read you from the end of the book. Boy a communist cooled. Eric land zeti. Who is in his seventies in the mid nineteen seventies when he's interview buffet in go nick and she describes him as having a remarkable wholeness of being quote. He's the most perfectly integrated communist. I know which means the the point. She interviewed him. He is the communist. Most persuasive to her of that communism can be integrated with the progress of the life of the individual.

"Poet laureate Elizabeth Bishop made regular dutiful visits to as pound during his twelve year stay at the government run saying Elizabeth Psychiatric Hospital. Pilgrimages to this mythic giant of modernist writing seemed to be almost expected of any poet acclaim as pound was visited by the likes of Robert Lowell, John Berryman e e cummings Elliott's Marianne Moore Charles Olson William, Carlos Williams, and Allen Ginsberg during his time at the DC facility. Much, like the sombre parade of Daviau tease paying respects to woody Guthrie laid dying in New York City. Pound was incarcerated at Saint Elizabeth in nineteen, forty five as an alternative to life imprisonment for conviction of treason as a pro fascist antisemitic broadcaster in Italy. Though many have questioned the severity of his mental afflictions pound became a caricature of insanity during his decade long stint and what he called the Bug House as he would sit in the gardens, wearing sandals and open shirts, feeding peanuts to squirrels. He could talk sensibly powerfully about writing and then babbled near here lately about the evils of the Jewish people. Bishop expressed deeply conflicted feelings about her time with the revered poet. To see an undeniable genius locked up among demented hysterical forgotten folks and dehumanized to unrecognizable stature. She turned to her craft to explore and manage this confusion. Her poem a visit to Saint Elizabeth's is a lament for the fallen hero a curious case study of broken nece and prayer against her own fears of following in his footsteps. The poem is structured as a nursery rhyme which both ads in Arab ambivalence to her subject and furthers the unsettling sense of lunacy that permeated her visitations inter host. This is the house of Bedlam. This is the man that lies in the House of Bedlam. This is the time of the tragic man that lies in the House of Bedlam. This is a wristwatch telling the time of the talkative man that lies in the house of Bedlam. A sailor wearing the watch that tells the of the honored man that lies in the house of Bedlam. This is the road stead. All of board reached by the sailor wearing the watch that tells the time of the old brave man that lies in the house. o-. Bedlam. These are the years in the walls of the word, the winds and the cloud of the Sea of. Sales by the sailor wearing the watch the tells the time of the cranky man that lies in the house of Bedlam. This is a Jew in a newspaper hat that dances weeping down the ward over the creaking see of board beyond the sailor winding his watch that tells the time of the cruel man that lies in the House of Bedlam. This is a world of books gone flat. This is a Jew in a newspaper at the dances weeping down the ward over the creaking see of board of the body sailor that winds his watch that tells the time of the busy man that lies in the House of Bedlam. This is a boy that pats the floor to see if the world is there is flat for the widow June in the newspaper hat that dances weeping down the ward waltzing the length of a weaving board by the silent sailor that here's watch that takes the time of the tedious man that lies in the House of Bedlam. These are the years and the walls in the door that shut on a boy that pats the floor to feel if the world is there and flat, this is a Jew in a newspaper Hatha dances joyfully down the ward into the partying sees of board passed the staring sailor that shakes his watch.

Walking the plank of coffin board with a crazy sailor that shows his watch that tells the time of the wretched man that lies in the house of Bedlam. There's an unproductive trope of there being a fine line between genius and Madman. We are encouraged to believe that the works of artists in an asylum are somehow this perpetual motion machine where mental illness fuels creativity, which in turn fractures the creator. Even more. Creating, a cycle toward an inevitable dark end where we are left only with the work to scrutinize or buyer. The truth is a lot less dramatic but no less sad. Social circumstances, interpersonal relationships, biology substances, and societal expectations. Each play relevant roles in determining the wellbeing of every person artists, genius or just the poor soul sleeping on the street in a newspaper. Art and artists are separate just as mental condition and person are separate. Influenced interlaced certainly, but we so often forget that works do not define the person rather the person defines the work. Just as Elizabeth Bishop was fascinated afraid even somewhat removed from such a prominent important writer as as their pound while in that controlled environment. So are we totally captivated by the albums? Were created well, the artists were mental hospitals. They are rare artifacts that unfortunately ended up finding the artist for their careers while giving an undue amount of weight to the condition of their mind rather than the beauty within it. The artistry that comes from pain and confusion of confinement in a hospital in mind. This records are a snapshot of Musicians on the brink that utilize songs to communicate their struggle relieve suffering. Today, we are exploring institutional.
