About a little tribute to emily dickinson
whose poetry reflects an extoraordinary, passionate personality that she had to hide all her life
those were the days when women, passion and pleasure were an unacceptable combination...

"Take all away from me, but leave me Ecstasy,
And I am richer then than all my Fellow Men --
Ill it becometh me to dwell so wealthily
When at my very Door are those possessing more,
In abject poverty --"

You have created a good visual analogy to the ecstatic feeling of the poet in the swirling skirt and the dynamic position of her legs. Unfortunately the rest of the picture does not contribute much: the obviously manipulated carpet and neutral skirting board speak neither of ecstasy nor abject poverty but water down the overall impact; cropping her feet seems a pity when they could (literally) underpin the sense of movement. Still it's a striking shot and much more interesting than most. Best wishes, Jonathan.

PS It's just my humble opinion, I hope you don't mind the crit.

I should have read your bio before asking you about being or at least knowing so much about Hungary and Hungarians. Great photo by the way.

i'm glad you said that, Patrick! that's what i always try and achieve with every photo i take - to make people stop and wonder for a second, or to try and figure out the story behind the image... :)

nothing else seems to make much sense to me about photography - at the moment anyway...

Passion, heat, soulful and so on. I can also say it?s beautiful - but mostly i like the movement, pulse and vibration.

i love this too Paula ... my only (small) problem is the blurring or smudging you did to the right side of the legs .. not that is shouldn't have been done - but to be more invisible or descrete or un-noticed .. that aside - this is a truly woderful image Paula - with such life and emotion - it's sexy, it's life filled, sensous, fun, bright .. and on and on ... as it touched the hearts of this viewer ... love it!

Means was in the modernist thing from the start........but not a manifesto type like the Imagists. Read her letters.....she owned the English language.

i don't suppose ezra pound was in the position to declare anyone wacky, but that's just my humble opinion... :)

surprisingly i don't know "normal" poets... so i don't know marianne means either. :)

She was from the south [US]. She and Graves were an item.....she was rhe otherwomen homewrecker. :)

Freud had HD on his couch for a few years...even Ezra thought she was whacky. I have some Sexton although I haven't read her for awhile. Marianne Means is the only "normal" woman poet that I can think of at the moment. She must be on a very short list. :)

Call me Senor Stupid but where do the "Spice Girls" fit into this puzzle? Photo note- never crop at the joints - ankles, knees, wrists, etc.(just trying to pass on the very little I know, and it's even less than I think it is) :~>

ah, and i don't know Laura Riding (shame on me...) but i'll look her up!

Paula Goddard   {K:8492} 9/7/2004
how about anne sexton? you know that all these "confessional" poets were prescribed poetry by their analyst... as part of the therapy... very sad lives. it is probably best to skip sylvia plath... not that she's not good, but very, very depressing...

  0


. .   {K:16329} 9/7/2004
Yes. What is it about neurotic women poets that I find so compelling? Laura Riding was another. But I skipped Slyvia Plath...fortunately! :)

Paula Goddard   {K:8492} 9/7/2004
thank you, Stephen! glad you like it! i've been having a bit of a "photographer's block", so i'm quite happy with these new shots...

ah, David is just toooooo simple to understand sophisticated women like myself... hahahahaha.

Beautiful sensual capture Paula, I love it !The composition is fabulous and gorgeous legs :-)
However, I wish I had not seen David's comment as I still have tears in my eyes from laughing !
I'm pleased you told him off though, he needs a good smack once in a while lol

Fabulous about also Paula :-)

Best wishes,
Steve

By university I was in love with HD. :)

Paula Goddard   {K:8492} 9/7/2004
yeah, the more people you meet, the less you want to have anything to do with them... :)

ah, i'm a miserable toad, aren't i??

i used to "live on" ED, when i was younger, but i'm not so sad any more, so haven't read her lately. at university we had a huge comprehensive literature exam (US + UK + anybody who ever put pen to paper in English...) that everybody dreaded... so did i... but i was given ED and Walt Whitman at which point i started quoting ED by heart, and i got a shining first. :))
wouldn't have been half as confident about say dreiser, though.... :)

I think "choose"......and at an early age, as I recall. As a youth I was passionately in love with her [and Edna Millay] ...and so able at reciting her work that my seventh grade [US] nun gave me a small anthology of her lyrical works.

You "don't blame" her seclusion?....... misanthropy is sooooo tempting, isn't it? :)

Paula Goddard   {K:8492} 9/7/2004
as far as i know, John, she didn't really want to meet anybody towards the end of her life... i don't blame her. :)

she also only wore white in those days.

What a great photo, and WONDERFUL sentiment, Paula!

If only more people pursued passion and pleasure, there would be less time for violence and hate!!
