  • What Makes Us Laugh?: Jesse Armstrong Talks to Ned Beauman at Lutyens & Rubinstein
    on my windpipe our narrator complains Beauman suggested that the selfishness of Armstrong s characters points to a pessimistic world view a Dostoevskyan nightmare scape With such self interested pettiness dictating human behaviour why he asked his expression serious don t we just die Armstrong replied with perhaps the most interesting revelation of the evening that despite writing such unlikeable characters despite hating the company he keeps over half the time he still considers himself an optimist He subscribes to Updike s interrogative outlook my work says Yes but Updike explained in a Paris Review interview asking and asking of his characters until they are entirely exposed Not a misanthrope then Seeing the best in people even as he leads them into minefields to relieve themselves one of the funniest episodes in the book actually Beauman tried a different tack If you don t hate them do you admire them Do you envy the passion with which these students take their sincerely crafted if terrible play into the Balkans Armstrong laughed again and admitted to being a liberal His position is to be open to lots of positions So no He doesn t envy the students their single mindedness The book is funny a money back guaranteed kind of funny Beauman said and that s Beauman s money Armstrong was quick to add It s cruelly funny Armstrong even slips a banana skin beneath his protagonist s feet at one point and self referentially so As we made our way towards Slovenia Christian s delight increased steadily He started to laugh as he read That is always irritating What s so fucking funny friend you want to ask of this person off on their own having a good time with an author right in front of your face while you re trying to mind your own business among all the horror in the world He banged a fist into the seat in front of him Oh man this is it he said and crossed his legs with merry abandon But it also raises plenty of questions about the funniness of idealism of earnest art And it deals bravely with issues of the Bosnian War and Britain s position of non intervention As we have seen elsewhere in Four Lions and as we significantly haven t seen elsewhere in his unproduced screenplay Murdoch Armstrong isn t afraid to address difficult subjects In light of this talk I left the book with a feeling of admiration for Armstrong s self professed optimism If you can live with this really unloveable bunch their rising lilt ringing in your ears day after day after day immersing yourself in what Beauman called a Hobbesian universe in which people make only ephemeral associations and still maintain a love for your fellow humans well I m very impressed Love Sex and Other Foreign Policy Goals is published by Random House About Xenobe Purvis Xenobe is a writer and a literary research assistant Her work has appeared in

  • Words & Music: Eddie Argos on Just William
    house I was 12 years old and read the three or four collections they had over and over again I ended up reading them every summer I was there and eventually added to the collection with my own purchases from the local charity shops The William stories are always set in the decade that they were written in so if Richmal wrote the book in 1968 the story was set in 1968 however William never ages he is 11 in 1922 and still 11 in the last book published in 1970 While when read as a whole this gives a fascinating insight into how family and village life changed over the course of the 48 years Richmal was writing the books once you feel you ve taken William on as a friend it gets a little frustrating I would have loved to been able to read stories about William as a teenager or as a grown up I used to spend my summers at my grandparents day dreaming and writing my own stories about who he d become So when I was creating myself as Eddie Argos I think these half thought out William stories from my youth drifted back into my mind William was brave especially when there was a pretty girl involved indignant about always being right even when he was wrong sometimes especially when he was wrong charismatic daring always on the lookout for a fun new adventure and most of all a massive show off often getting into trouble to try and impress his peers William would most definitely have become the front man of a band and was certainly the lead singer I wanted to be I should point out here that it was William s exuberant misbehaviour that inspired me not his writing skills although whoever is sub editing this may disagree So it turns out the answer to which books have most inspired you is the William Brown series of books by Richmal Crompton I ve based my entire personality on what that funny little 11 year old may have become had he been allowed to grow up Because I know there are only 39 books in the series and I want there to be a new one for me to read for as long as possible I ve held off buying all of them on eBay and still only buy them when I see them in charity shops or second hand book shops I m always on the lookout for William and The Pop Singer released 1965 as deep down inside even though I know it couldn t possibly be true I m hoping he ends up writing a song called Formed A Band About Eddie Argos Eddie Argos is an artist and writer living in Berlin He is most well known for being the lead singer of the band Art Brut who have to date released four albums with the two most recent being produced by Black Francis of Pixies As

  • Words & Music: May Robertson of the Keats Quartet
    Again in which he describes the play as a bitter sweet Reading such tragedy is like being consumed in the fire but continuing that metaphor the reader might through it and despite the pain find new Phoenix wings We borrow this as a good way to describe the uplifting cathartic quality that we look for when we re playing music such as Death and the Maiden This year we ve been working on another piece inspired by a poem this time by Keats himself The talented young composer Lewis Wolstenholme modelled his When I have Fears for us on Keats s sonnet of the same name carefully finding musical ways to mirror the rhyme scheme and chart the emotional progress of the poem Yet the musical language is Lewis s own it represents one modern reader s interpretation of the poem just as Keats uses poetry to document his own experience of Shakespeare Milton and the ancient classics Completing the circle we ll be performing Lewis s piece at the Keats House in Hampstead this autumn physically inhabiting a space where Keats was present and using sound as a way to reflect on his work It will be a metaphor for how his work inspires us Making sound feels an especially appropriate response to Keats because sound and music are so present in his poetry In the Ode to a Nightingale said to have been written in the garden of the Hampstead house the song of the bird pouring forth thy soul abroad In such an ecstasy accompanied by the murmurous haunt Of flies offers an escape from a human sound world where we hear each other groan It doesn t last of course Fled is that music In the Ode on a Grecian Urn Keats uses sound to explain its opposite silence music here is so unreachable it s inaudible and therefore never has to stop In a Platonic thought the poet suggests that this might be better When we play in the house in Hampstead we ll be trying to create something beautiful that only exists temporarily we know it has to subside into silence and cease to be Yet heard music can be one of the glories infinite that haunt us to borrow again that first part of Endymion Keats tells us that art can both articulate and transcend human experience He does this in poetry that is filled with sound That s why he inspired us to take his name The Keats Quartet will be performing at Keats House on 12th October at 3pm with a programme featuring Wolstenholme s new composition and other lyrical English pieces About May Robertson May Robertson plays with the Keats Quartet keatsquartet com She read English at Cambridge University before becoming a freelance musician May blogs at intymeoflove blogspot com and tweets at MayRobertsonVln Follow the Keats Quartet on Twitter KeatsQuartet Mail Web More Posts 1 Comments comments Prev Words Music Mychal Cohen of Campfire O K Next Words Music
