The screwy, at its most basic, is a form of energy, something simultaneously marvellous, explosive, and, as a consequence of [...]

A new book by Joël Gayraud is available here  L’Homme sans horizon At the beginning of the millennium, after the collapse of the Eastern bloc, the horizon of humanity has been abruptly shuttered.

OUR GAME

By |2019-10-28T20:16:25+00:00October 27th, 2019|Essay|0 Comments

“Only by despairing, and then despairing of despair, can mankind begin truly to see and to act consciously in the service of the marvelous.

The Cenacles and the Limelight

We note the participation of more and less well-known, including some repulsive people from the academic world. In other words: [...]

HIS BODY IS A CROW

By |2019-07-21T14:47:52+00:00July 21st, 2019|News|0 Comments

His Body is a Crow is a collection of surrealist poems by Steven Cline. They are a signalsign from a unknown place. A place of strange entities and folkloric thingamajigs, of cruelty and sweetness in dialectical communion. In these poems Word fornicates with Word, and Meaning has very little gravity. Meaning may be seen to [...]
