review Elsewhere

Elsewhere review è 3 Eliot Weinberger ✓ 3 read review Elsewhere “In a century of mass migration and deportation political exile and casual tourism being elsewhere was the common condition For the moderns elsewhere was not merely physical location or dislocation but was intrinsic to the work Victor Segalen in China at the beginning of the century writes of the ‘manifestation of Diversity’ a ‘spectacle of Difference’ everything that is ‘foreign strange unexpected surprising mysterious amorous superhuman heroic and ev. If you ask only for what s here you get everything This is a very slim book and every page is alive I ordered it thanks to the Goodreads algorithm that tells us every month about new books by authors we ve reviewed On the theory that anything by Eliot Weinberger is worth reading a theory so far absolutely verified I read itThe idea of the book is fourteen manifestations of diversity instances of the collage of a poet pasted physically or mentally onto a specific unfamiliar landscape Sounds like nothing Any poem might claim the same But Weinberger has chosen well and strangely from several poets I ve never heard of as well as a uartet of favorites Lorca Hikmet Pessoa and Villaurrutia the last of whom I only know because Weinberger translated a collection by him back in 1992 and I was lucky enough to discover itI could happily uote from every poem lines from Lorca s dystopian dawn in NYC after the 1929 crash or Villaurrutia s erotic dream heavy nocturne about the lost angels of Los Angeles Or N zim Hikmet s Things I Didn t Know I LovedI never knew I liked the night pitch blacksparks fly from the engineI didn t know I loved sparksOr the delicate poem about drinking a glass of water by Toriko Takarabe that contains the unaccountable lineBut when the water passes down my throatI wouldn t think of a Mongolian man following his sheepWeinberger s brief notes at the end of each poem are stuffed with surprise Who knew about the new Nicaraguan vanguard of which the 15 year old poet Joau n Pasos was a member or that there is a book to be written about the network of poets that once existed across the African diaspora from the 1920s to the 1970s embracing such movements as Negritude and Black Nationalism Plus there s a 15th poem hidden in these notes by the supposed screenwriter Charles Reznikoff who spent two years in the 1930s watching the flies on his desk This one s from a seuence called Autobiography HollywoodIt has been raining for three daysThe faces of the giantson the bill boardsstill smilebut the gilt has been washed from the skywe see the iron world
