“Timeless. On the contrary, inside time. And beyond. It rains this light rain of words. Significant. Blunt. Stirring, most of all. / And then the images, evoked, drawn, painted. Strokes and... More > shadows. Black. Intensity, liberty. And love. Thank you Stefano.” Marco Mathieu, Writer and Journalist (“La Repubblica”) - Milan (Italy) / “Violent Dances Fade” (Libertarian Poetical Fragments) is a visual arts and poetry project born in Milan in 1996, further developed in London and currently active in New York. Violent Dances Fade intends to foreground different interpretative perspectives as an attempt to frame the terms of social debate. And the admission of the adoption of ethical assumptions becomes unavoidable, as the faced themes are liberty and love, essential constitutive personal element, but formidable tension in a political dimension.

The Argonautica By Apollonius Rhodius & R.C. Seaton
eBook (ePub): $3.99
The Argonautica is a Greek epic poem written by Apollonius Rhodius in the 3rd century BC and tells the myth of the voyage of Jason and the Argonauts to retrieve the Golden Fleece from Colchis. Their... More > heroic adventures and Jason's relationship with the Colchian sorceress Medea were already well known to Hellenistic audiences, which enabled Apollonius to go beyond a simple narrative, giving it a scholarly emphasis suitable to the times. It was the age of the great Library of Alexandria and his epic incorporates his researches in geography, ethnography, comparative religion and Homeric literature. However, his main contribution to the epic tradition lies in his development of the love between hero and heroine – he seems to have been the first narrative poet to study "the pathology of love". His Argonautica had a profound impact on Latin poetry. It was translated by Varro Atacinus and imitated by Valerius Flaccus. It influenced Catullus and Ovid and it provided Virgil with a model for his Roman epic, the Aeneid.< Less
A Guide to Men Being Encore Reflections of a Bachelor Girl By Helen Rowland
eBook (ePub): $3.99
A Guide to Men Being Encore Reflections of a Bachelor Girl by Helen Rowland, first published in 1922. The greatest evaporative of course of this form of bon mot is mere cleverness. Wit is the attar... More > which endures. The wit of Pope and Catullus, Landor, Voltaire, Rousseau and Wilde. Few of the perfumes of this diminutive form of wit and satire have survived. Pretty and scented vaporings, most of the thousands and thousands of them, that have died on the air of the foibles of their day. The racy old odors, which are as new as now, that still hover about the political and amorous quips of the Greeks. The nose-crinkling ones of the French, more vinegar-acrid than perfumed, although a seventeenth-century proverb calls France "a monarchy tempered by epigrams." The didactic Teutonic ones, sharply corrosive. "The average man takes all the natural taste out of his food by covering it with ready-made sauces, and all the personality out of a woman by covering her with his ready-made ideals."< Less

More > characters acting on the stage in a sort of dialogue between groups, or in a full operatic “concertato”. Narration is the basic element. A story where several situations occur and memories are back from the past, finally leading to the end of a journey when, looking back, we maybe can understand the sense of the journey itself. The title is a verse from a poem by Catullus (Carmina, LXXXV): "Odi et amo. Quare id faciam, fortasse requiris. Nescio, sed fieri sentio et excrucior". (I hate and I love. How can I do this, perhaps you ask? I do not know, but I feel it happening, and I am in pain.) My warmest thanks to my friend, the great cellist Enrico Bronzi, for having asked me to write this piece.
