I. A problem indeed what an irremediable problem I am faced with. It is a feeling of a whole country hurting me then, where to run for refuge? A person who acquires complete consciousness of all climes and conditions of human existence is the very person most hurt, not the common man who has not developed this cursed consciousness.
Evil has been haunting the world despite many men of action who rose up against it. . In all times and in all centuries’ thinkers, crusaders, honest and truthful men were humiliated and persecuted. Despite this historical threat. I cannot change you see.
11.I shall pass on to the aspect of what my philosophical eye perceives in the poet and his tools of work.
Poetry is a struggle between language and human experience. Poet the chosen medium to express the local experience of man on earth is an eternal; adventurer scaling to the peaks of expression while the language which is the product of common people and pedestrian experience and which alone is available to the poet in his adventure . keeps failing him. It is on these struggles of the poet that the common language arrives at levels of sublimity in the expression of higher experience.
The growing understanding of life by man is not merely the effect of external experience gained by age but in truth a gradual flowering of ones own soul.
When the flower of the soul blossoms and its fragrance begins to waft on the breeze, an attempt to bring it under one division of other of creative art as romanticism, classicism, surrealism, or any other ism is too much of a gross approach to too subtle a thing which transcends, the mere physical plane of human experience. No attempt at a formal denomination of that state of creation can ever be successful.
Each emotional and intellectual stress of each instance of intense experience that I pass through, is a step higher in my mountaineering of poetic peaks, for, I look upon thins around and things within thereafter, only from that level.
To be continued......
Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us Seshendra. As usual your observations give us something to ponder.
A person who acquires complete consciousness of all climes
I would suggest he is either an erudite geographer or a grandiloquent twit.
