  • Words & Music: Astronautalis on Mark Helprin
    out and out idolatry and one could even argue blatant imitation And though that book truly changed my life and my music and my language every time I think of A Soldier of The Great War my first thought is never of the moments that moved me the language that shaped me or the story that entranced me but that day on the mountain pass where the world around me was so alive so insane and so beautiful that I had to put the book down Since that wild drive through the Rockies almost 10 years ago my dangerous little hobby of touring around the country with my friends has slowly turned into a tidy little living made from touring around the world with many of the same friends and yet my life has only become more bizarre more thrilling and more insane Often I think about the criticism Helprin faced later in his career for what many people thought to be a fantastically naive romance about the overwhelming beauty in the world And I can t help but think of how broke we were back then how sick I was and how close we were to death on that road and yet how truly beautiful it all was So beautiful in fact that I had to put down what would become one of my favourite books just to take it all in Astronautalis will be playing a handful of UK dates this August Check his official website for details About Andy Bothwell Once you find out that Astronautalis was born to a Texas train man with a nose crooked from bar fights and a pretty Kentucky girl who ran away from home at 17 to become a photographer it becomes clear that he didn t stumble into the life of a drifter he was born into it With a poet uncle who lived off horse betting and hitchhiking grandfathers who were spies sailors and test pilots and over 500 000 miles of touring under his own belt you have to wonder where the tales in Astronautalis music end and the life of Andy Bothwell begins Bothwell has spent almost every waking moment of the last seven years on the road playing shows earning scars collecting giving tattoos grinding out a cult like fan base and living up to his proud storied and whiskey soaked blood line Mail Web More Posts 1 Comments comments Prev Take Me Back To New Orleans Next Words Music Mychal Cohen of Campfire O K Related Posts Walk the Perimeter Micro Narratives of the Everyday Books in Review Froth on the Daydream by Boris Vian Litro TV Recent Posts Bringing Up Baby In the Night Time Before the Sun Rises at the Gate Theatre True Love in Los Angeles A R BY ANY OTHER NAME The Echo Travelling in Fiji The Litro Blog View Archive 11th February 2016 Litro 149 The Love issue Letter from the Editor By Eric Akoto Love we spend our lives

  • Gove’s Marbles: English Literature and Moral Education (Part I)
    as what Gove accepts as intellectual rigour has narrowed and just as he has sloppily elided his pet terms so that each seems to act as a synonym for the others so too has the publicly sanctioned scope of Literature been reduced and the justification for this reduction been founded on a disciplinary conflation Leave aside for now the knotty but rather dull question of the criteria of great when one talks of great literature and great writers by restricting the range of study to a small handful of canonical works and authors plus one or two others and that despite Gove s protestations is what the curriculum reforms amount to de facto Mr Gove makes narrow historical interest the driving force of literary study This does not mean let me be clear the productive coexistence and cross fertilization of History and Literature two related modes of intellectual enquiry It means the ill conceived reduction of Literature to History the latter narrowly conceived To think any subject reducible to the terms or principles of another is mere idiocy certain subjects may have overlapping interests or rely on similar skills but there is no subject related epistemological foundation on which all other learning rests Gove s insistence that there is a Great British literary history to which school children must be exposed misses just what is most valuable about English Literature as a field of study and it entirely ignores a mode of knowledge quite different from that to which Mr Gove clings The work of getting students to know in Gove s preferred sense of the word that Shakespeare was the author of a significant body of plays and poetry and that his contribution of neologisms to our language likely runs into the thousands this is the work of moments and perhaps of a little periodic recital Fostering an appreciation of just what such information might mean for us this is a far harder task a more vital one to be sure and one that will require some degree of intellectual rigour while having little to do with the bare facts of any matter These then are the problems 1 that the scope of what counts in schools as capital L Literature is being unreasonably constrained and prescribed 2 that sight of just what literary study adds to our knowledge and know how is dimming as literary study is being treated as a branch of history itself tendentiously and poorly conceived as little more than a select group of timelines The matters of English Literature and its contributions to knowledge and of just what English is for will be the focus of Part II For a more strictly academic consideration of politicized liberal and teleological conceptions of education see Kenneth B McIntyre s recent article in Journal of Philosophy of Education Incidentally a PISA report on creative problem solving places UK students eleventh out of 44 countries The UK in most of PISA s measures came to close to the

  • Diary: Hay Festival of Literature and the Arts
    year old bestseller Watching the Englis h which she s recently revised an updated An anthropologist who describes herself as a data junkie Fox discussed English cultural grammar what it really means when we bring up the weather in conversation the unwritten rules of queuing our class radar that s built on linguistics our constant readiness for irony Particularly illuminating on how the use of social media has altered our methods of communication Fox was a warm and passionate speaker with a voice reminiscent of Vanessa Redgrave Niall Ferguson is also an excellent speaker slow and measured clearly giving careful consideration to every word The First World War has been a popular topic at Hay this year with Max Hastings Kate Adie and Margaret Macmillan all speaking on the subject as well as Ferguson Many drew parallels between the Great War and recent conflicts in the Balkans Iraq Afghanistan and the Ukraine but Ferguson called the British public to task on their opposition to recent conflicts in contrast to their continued justification of the First World War Calling other historians views a failure of imagination Ferguson claimed that Britain was wrong to take military action in 1914 and that the conflict and the loss of so much human life could have been avoided As he concluded I heard the lady behind me exclaim Well he s a pugnacious chap isn t he It s possible to spend the day in back to back talks but if you need to give your mind a rest there are other ways to pass the time vintage clothes stalls stands selling everything from fiendishly expensive crockery to artisan ice cream booths advertising river cruises independent schools renewable energy and the RSPB deck chairs to sit in and read There s even a delicious brand of apple juice produced specially for the Festival Just don t bother trying to connect to the Internet or make any phone calls because nothing works round here better to leave electronic devices at home establish a meeting point and rely on pen and paper if you want to take notes Somehow that seems appropriate About Laura Macdougall Laura Macdougall works as a fiction editor by day At night she can usually be found at the theatre a gig or a comedy show She is particularly interested in new writing and work by emerging female artists Mail Web More Posts 5 Comments comments Prev Book Review The View from the Train by Patrick Keiller Next Book Review Death Can t Take a Joke by Anya Lipska Related Posts The Written World An Introduction Book Review The Circle by Dave Eggers Just Browsing An Ode to the Second Hand Bookshop Litro TV Recent Posts Bringing Up Baby In the Night Time Before the Sun Rises at the Gate Theatre True Love in Los Angeles A R BY ANY OTHER NAME The Echo Travelling in Fiji The Litro Blog View Archive 11th February 2016 Litro 149 The Love issue Letter from the
