IN QUEST OF A TITLE By VOLTERRA
Paperback: $4.88
Ships in 3-5 business days
Bloom:Sublimity of Am. lit. bk., a reply (referring to good Pynchon's 2013 book: he knows what he is suppressing from public knowledge: the "daemon" knows) to statements epigraphed to V.'s... More > poem in midform: "Yes, said Joyce, I met [Proust] once at a literary dinner and when we were introduced all he said to me was: ‘Do you like truffles?’ ‘Yes,’ I replied, ‘I am very fond of truffles.’ And that was the only conversation which took place between the two most famous writers of their time, remarked Joyce—who seemed to be highly amused at the incident…. [Whitman] has a certain flavour, it is true, the smell of virgin forest is in him, and of the wooden shack, a kind of primitive colonialism, but that is a long way from being civilized…. I look on Thoreau as an American Frenchman…. the real American writers so far have all been minor writers, such as Jack London, Bret Harte, Robert Service in Canada and such like, and it will take a long time before they produce any art which is worthwhile." US violence as Iraq's.< Less
WITH RIMITTO ALL'S WELL By VOLTERRA
Paperback: $5.84

A statement by a son of Russian Jews (not of Isaac Babel), "Energetic as [Stendhal] is, he cannot match Balzac and Victor Hugo, preternatural demiurges of creativity, and his art is precisely... More > the reverse of Flaubert's painstaking mastery," (agreed:) that the statement can be with equal wisdom, "Energetic as [Shakespeare] is in his 39 plays, he cannot match Lope, preternatural demiurge of creativity who wrote 1,800 plays, and his art is precisely the reverse of Joyce's painstaking mastery." 1 R&N wipes out all of Balzac as W@Peace Dickens. Futile attempt of Cheney that "I'd" do it again, when this thing started much earlier and notwithstanding the implied "Cheney Administration" (Putin to pres. Medvedev)) of the Gestapo and the former employer of Putin, the umbrellaed KGB. That particular child insisted in May, 2015, that poems, novels, stories, plays only matter if "we" do: vanity; and "I'm not Tolstoy. I just love reading books." [Sure]If you are supposed to pray 5 times a day that is sure to warp your mind.< Less
I By VOLTERRA
Paperback: $8.32
Ships in 3-5 business days
A novel, but difficult to compare to "Love loves to love love" of Joyce. Malala Y. may be the most intelligent Pakistani ever (unintelligent enuf not to realize she is merely a propaganda... More > tool: "western powers" are not breaking ties with or using those Am bases to depose the disgusting Saudi family, a fact to be happy about: they hadn't a clue what to do with post-G Libya) according to Westerners or at least Western journalists, but she believes in schoolearning that taught schoolmaster Shakespeare and clerk Einstein nothing. Female (DT has made Kelly as alliteratively famous as Kardashian, Mrs. Clinton in Pop culture) sex can't love or think and if tried she would die of a stroke. There should be payment for being a politician. Pay half a million current dollars every half a week while a professional. One does not want to believe Stalin gets off as scot free as Osip Mandelstam: justice as much as greed and fear of death fuels religions.< Less
A NEW EVENING AT THE THEATER By VOLTERRA
Paperback: $6.40
Ships in 3-5 business days
"Marjorie's Intentions": A brief verse drama that is more joyous and less comic than one in reading or performance may want. A veritable tragedy. The author toyed with titling it... More > "Crass Oppression in Québec", but chose this more telling title. "The Triumphant Defeat Final of the Corsican": A wholly self-contained play from the other. The place is Waterloo, the play is brief, and the characters with speaking lines are all women, to rebound against the thoughts of the centuries, and the play is of the examining class. Then a friendly intermission, followed by four brief plays. A total of six, making it a new evening at the theater. From Muhammad's book it is clear that Arabs then thought death is the end, spite of all their gods. A noble people compared to Israelites who spread their cancer through a book called Tanakh. N Amer blacks slaves (pathetic cases) of their slavemasters' religion. What does love between humans amount to, moist connections.< Less
CHECKMATE: AN ASIAN POEM By VOLTERRA
Paperback: $9.44
Ships in 3-5 business days
This Asian poem, "An encumbrance/ On the human dance," very different from what N. Boyle says in the Encyl. Britannica in 2014--"He could be said to stand in the same relation to the... More > culture of the era that began with the Enlightenment and continues to the present day as William Shakespeare does to the culture of the Renaissance and Dante to the culture of the High Middle Ages. His Faust, though eminently stageworthy when suitably edited, is also Europe’s greatest long poem since John Milton’s Paradise Lost, if not since Dante’s The Divine Comedy." That character I (Shakespeare in his epitaph dramatizes the fact that he is in a class of his own, not Chaucer, Spenser) is here in this of some interest for he has something of the divine in him. The new thing about this work is so much the fact that the poem will improve in translation.< Less
CANDY By VOLTERRA
Paperback: $5.00
Ships in 3-5 business days
A novella that may alternatively be titled Solipsism. For whatever reason, 20th century masterpieces all end with es: Ulysses (1st ½, citizen: as Eliot wrote, that part approximately a novel,... More > the rest phantasmagoria), Le Côté de Guermantes, Ficciones, Hidden Fortress, The Heart of Darkness. One of Shakespeare's hidden ironies: childless Macbeth should have no reason to fear Banquo. This is almost as crippling as Horatio saying of having seen the king once and, then, that he "knew" him-these hands are not more like: slapdash conglomeration by Shakespeare. Israel, the star of David, again begging for money from the US without which it could not be a nation. These jews are self-sufficient all right and remain so now as always a client state. These christians do not so much rerereread the gospels at the time of J.'s who never existed birthday but gift each other.< Less
WHAT'S LOVE By VOLTERRA

Drama, a "grand" cast. A jihadist fascist: a character (forgive since fictional) in a series of novellas who says (Matt. 10:34), "Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I... More > came not to send peace, but a sword." Another is who proclaims — "Say: We have believed in Allah and what has been revealed to us and what has been revealed to Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the Descendants and what was given to Moses and Jesus and what was given to the prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and we are Muslims [in submission] to Him." (Qn: 2:136) And yet against allah (as with "Qn" penalty for adultery) Moslems suffix Md. differently, not realizing his political gambit for equality. Why? Neither Jesus, Moses, Muhammad among "middle eastern" religions was a vegetarian.< Less
TWO ANTITHETICAL CONTENTIONS OF VANITY, PUNNING By VOLTERRA
Paperback: $7.68
Ships in 3-5 business days
Human nature is very limited, whatever “clinical” psychologists claim. This very short treatise about the whole of the human mind is about as long as it takes to expound psychology.... More > Eggzamples, Example, women sadly remain women psychologically, whether in burqa-land or bikini-land. Proved, no woman of the hundreds who read it had any idea of this man really can love, how exciting to be with him. Ha ha. Abstract art is just splotches of paint as banal as flowers, naked women painted in earlier centuries-times. If docile muhammadans were plausible about the American-Israeli conspiracy so called, the latter would have blown away the Kaba in Mca and the holy mosque where Muhammad, etc. are buried, without facing anything worse than the blowing up of the Empire State Building. Capitalism: Mich. Jordan when famous endorsed an underwear brand, those "literary" anthologies. Interesting surface, many painters can do that, but drama, only Tiziano (Titian).< Less

More > Friend MM, woman said what kind of person brought to "our" feminine house? Mr. Scott Purdy later, evening, phoned MM at MM's residence, that he had managed to sleep with the woman (who knew Purdy was about to wed), glad to do so Before marrying, not infidelity. Said MM, SP truly is a Don Giovanni. MM looked to being a movie director, but never bought a VCR. His friend many years before had asked V. to borrow his so that he could show pornographic stuff as prelude to love with a Caucasoid woman, being Negroid. After triumphing he said difficult to choose art over sex (salivary). Returned the VCR with much thanks. A copy sent in 2016 Jan. to "Masculine Putin, dictator of Russia, 'Land of Tolstoy, Pushkin/ Not Lenin, Solzhenitsyn, Putin'" in English to Moscow, exact Kremlin.
