Dickinson Season 3: Release Date, Cast, And More

(Welcome to ...And More, our no-frills, zero B.S. guide to when and where you can watch upcoming movies and shows, and everything else you could possibly stand to know.)Apple TV+'s upcoming coming-of-age series "Dickinson" first burst onto the scene in November of 2019, taking a thoroughly (and fittingly) modern approach to retelling the story of the world-famous literary figure Emily Dickinson ... a woman, an artist, and a symbol who was ahead of her time in so many ways. The first two seasons ...

“Love And Theft” Turns 20

“I contain multitudes,” Bob Dylan proclaimed at the start of his 2020 album Rough And Rowdy Ways. It’s a line that virtually only he and the poet he borrowed it from — Walt Whitman — could get away with. Who’s going to argue with Bob? At this point, his body of work is nothing short of monumental, an incomparably rich and wide-ranging oeuvre that defies categorization. Of course, had the Dylan saga come to an end with the 20th century, his legacy would have been secure. But miraculously, the las...

Black Americans must overcome negative self-concepts to succeed

How does someone act Black? The first time I asked myself that question, I had just been told that I was “acting white” because I read comic books and listened to Jazz rather than playing football and listening to rap like the rest of my Black peers. The idea of “acting white” has plenty of colloquial synonyms, “Oreo” being one of them. White on the inside, Black on the outside. I spent a lot of my childhood wondering: If I was acting white, what did it mean to “act Black?” Skin color does not i...

Whitman and the America yet to be: reconceptualizing a multiracial democracy

My research on the ten years that Whitman lived in Washington, DC, (1863-1873) led to my argument in Whitman in Washington: Becoming the National Poet in the Federal City that his experience with the federal government—its bureaucracy, its hospitals, its soldiers, its efforts to realize the proposition that all men are created equal—transformed him. His identity as the poet of America was of course formed while he lived in Brooklyn and wrote Leaves of Grass (1855), but what has often seemed to m...

Why literature must be part of the language of recovery from crisis

Wislawa Szymborska’s poem “The End and the Beginning” outlines a plan of recovery after the war: the Polish Nobel Laureate’s vision of how we return to a sense of normality is pertinent to our times, when the COVID-19 pandemic has left the world in ruins and people in an unfathomed reality. The poem, inter alia, mentions bridges—literal ones that we must cross to resume activity, but it’s not lost on the reader that bridges are also spiritual, emotional, and cultural. The bridge she constructs t...

Democracy in America has been overthrown before

Walt Whitman once wrote, "Did you, too, O friend, suppose democracy was only for elections, for politics, and for a party name?" His words rang out in a familiar key this week, writes Jane Greenway Carr, as Americans raised alarms over widespread Republican efforts to make it harder to vote and easier to overturn elections.

Turn any place on earth into a New York street corner

Group think: why art loves a crowd

From flâneurs to rallies, protests to parties, human beings are drawn to congregate. With social gatherings a possibility once again, Olivia Laing considers the crowd in art and literatureWhen I was very lonely in New York, one of the things that most comforted me was to wander up Broadway or along the East River, alone but in the company of thousands of strangers. Anonymised by the multitude, I felt the burden of my sorrow slide off me. It was a relief to be part of a whole, no longer agonising...

Check out these spring book releases about birds, gardening and the outdoors

By JULIA RUBIN The new season of spring shows has begun, and viewership is way up by all accounts. We’re not talking about screens, which we’ve all been glued to during the pandemic. Less noticed is another trend: people tuning in to nature for quieter, real-life, high-stakes drama. From new Audubon field guides, updated for the first time in decades, to a book of poetry about insects, publishers are trying to meet this moment: Not only is public engagement with nature high, but so is concern ov...

Dooryard.

The word dooryard is well known to me as a lexical item, but I had no idea what exactly it meant; as ktschwarz said in this Wordorigins thread, “like probably most Americans outside New England, I associate it mainly with Walt Whitman’s ‘When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom’d’.” Fortunately, in the same thread cuchuflete linked to this 2017 FB post from the Bangor Maine Police Department: The term “dooryard” has such a simple and clear meaning to me that I had no idea the phrase could be so ...

A focus on mental health, not more court orders, key to curbing homelessness

U.S. District Judge David Carter is frustrated with the homelessness crisis. As the judge overseeing a lawsuit over L.A.’s failure to provide housing for downtown homeless residents, he has held a number of high-profile hearings at which he has attempted to pressure local officials to take action. Recently Carter visited the Skid Row area during a rainstorm and then issued a blistering order declaring that the conditions he saw were “appalling and dangerous.” On Thursday he held another hearing,...

Viggo Mortensen talks directing Lance Henriksen in a story inspired by his mother’s death

Flying home across the Atlantic after his mother’s funeral, actor Viggo Mortensen started to write, sifting through memories and feelings to capture her spirit and story before it faded into fragments of the past. “I just wanted to remember as much as I could about her, because everything is so present, and intense, as happens when someone dies that you care about,” Mortensen says via Zoom from Barcelona, Spain, the country where he’s lived in recent years. “Images of her at different times.

Behold the Steampunk Home Exercise Machines from the Victorian Age

The pandemic has resulted in a lot of people reinventing their fitness regimens, investing in pricey items like Mirror and Peloton bikes to turn homes into home gyms. Personally, we’re saving our pennies until some Etsy seller replicates the mechanical therapy systems of Dr. Gustav Zander (1835–1920). From the mid-19th century through WWI, these machines were at the forefront of gym culture. Their function is extremely similar to modern strength training equipment, but their design exudes a d...

Naomi Long Madgett, Longtime Poet Laureate Of Detroit And Champion Of Black Poets, 97

Madgett was 17 when her first book was published. “Her elegant, exacting and lyrical poems — which invited comparisons to Walt Whitman and Emily Dickinson — addressed a breadth of themes: social justice, romantic love, women’s histories, religious devotion and the craft of poetry itself. Yet she was almost as well known as a publisher and editor of poetry.” – The New York Times

‘Homeland Elegies’ offers brutal, often funny look at being Muslim in post 9/11 America

By Ann Levin An elegy is a mournful poem expressing regret for something lost. Ayad Akhtar’s brilliant new novel, “Homeland Elegies,” mourns an America that has lost its way in the half-century since it welcomed his parents’ generation of Muslim immigrants from Pakistan. It’s a work of autofiction narrated by a man named Ayad Akhtar who is best known, like the real Akhtar, for writing a hit Broadway play in which the lead character, a Pakistani American lawyer, expresses some sympathy for the te...

How beards put a brave face on threatened masculinity

In the West, for many centuries, shaving has identified a good man properly oriented to a higher order, whether divine or political. Defying this regulation meant being ostracised. But on occasion, a general reorganisation of masculine norms has interrupted the shaving-respectability regime.Alexander the Great established shaving as the ideal in Greco-Roman civilisation when he imitated classical depictions of eternally youthful gods. Though there was a brief resurgence of beards inspired by Rom...
