            Poesy Matters & Other Matters (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            This two-volume set, Poesy Matters and Other Matters, presents selected texts by the Swedish polymath Catherine Christer Hennix. Volume one, Poesy Matters, is divided into two sections: poetry and drama, with each section also containing pieces of commentary by Hennix or her long...time collaborator Henry Flynt. Volume two, Other Matters, is divided into two sections: first, program notes and essays about a wide range of topics (including music, psychoanalysis, and mathematics), and second, a reproduction of Hennix's 1989 work The Yellow Book. The first comprehensive publication of Hennix's written work, Poesy Matters and Other Matters illustrates the singular depth and variety of her contributions to contemporary music, art, literature, and mathematics. Best known as a composer, Catherine Christer Hennix has, throughout her fifty-plus-year career, produced innovative work in the fields of not just minimal and computer music, but psychoanalytic theory, intuition mathematics, poetry, and prose as well. The texts in Poesy Matters and Other Matters reflect Hennix's diverse training as well as her long-standing personal interests in Lacanian psychoanalysis and Japanese and Middle Eastern poetic forms, resulting in a rich, diffuse collection of writings that reveal one of the avant-garde's most implacable, not to mention overlooked, creative minds.

            'Secrets of St. Jude's' exposes what the general public is completely unaware of concerning St. Jude's Children's Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. While on the surface St. Jude's appears to be a reputable charity appealing for support for treatment of cancer-stricken children, beh...ind the scenes is a different story. 'Secrets of Saint Jude's' brings to light what its many television commercials and other media appeals do not tell us. As the saying goes, the spotlight conceals much more than it reveals. 'The Secrets of St. Jude's' will prove to be a very interesting read for those who believe St. Jude's Children's Hospital is a completely trustworthy charitable organization.

            Nous ne tenons pas tant a ces disputes de religion, nous autres gens de par ici. La province en a trop souffert, et il nous tarde que la France n'en souffre plus. Nous esperons que le roi va en finir a Montauban avec tous ces enrages du Midi; nous leur souhaitons une belle frotte...e, mais non plus, comme faisaient nos peres, la hart et le bucher. Tout s'en va en partis politiques, et, de nos jours, on ne se damne plus tant les uns les autres. Mais je vois que mon discours vous desoblige, et je me hate de vous faire savoir que M. de Bois-Dore est aujourd'hui aussi bon catholique que bien d'autres qui n'ont point cesse de l'etre. Le jour ou le Bearnais reconnut que Paris valait bien une messe, Bois-Dore pensa que le roi ne pouvait pas se tromper, et il abjura sans eclat, mais franchement, je pense, les doctrines de Geneve.

            La campagne n'etait pas encore dans toute sa splendeur, les pres etaient d'un vert languissant tirant sur le jaune, et les feuilles ne faisaient encore que bourgeonner aux arbres. Mais les amandiers et les pechers en fleurs entremelaient ca et la leurs guirlandes roses et blanche...s aux sombres masses des cypres. Au milieu de ce jardin immense, la Brenta coulait rapide et silencieuse sur un lit de sable, entre ces deux larges rives de cailloux et de debris de roches qu'elle arrache du sein des Alpes, et dont elle sillonne les plaines dans ses jours de colere. Un demi-cercle de collines fertiles, couvertes de ces longs rameaux de vigne noueuse qui se suspendent a tous les arbres de la Venetie, faisait un premier cadre au tableau; et les monts neigeux, etincelants aux premiers rayons du soleil, formaient, au dela, une seconde bordure immense, qui se detachait comme une decoupure d'argent sur le bleu solide de l'air.

            Elle faisait secretement tous les ans, vers le mois de mai, un voyage a Montesparre. De la, deguisee en paysanne, elle allait soit a Flamarande, ou elle entrait par un couloir souterrain aboutissant a l'interieur du donjon habite par Ambroise et Gaston, soit au Refuge, d'ou, selo...n elle, M. de Salcede s'exilait pendant quelques jours, soit dans quelque foire du pays ou Ambroise, accompagne du jeune homme, conduisait les chevaux eleves par Michelin. Pour les vetements, les connaissances speciales, le langage et les manieres de surface, Esperance etait bien le fils de Michelin ou d'Ambroise. Il ne lui en coutait pas de parler le patois, d'equiter pour la montre les chevaux nus, de manger au cabaret, de faire echange de quolibets avec les maquignons. On etait tout surpris de decouvrir en lui un homme parfaitement civilise quand il se retrouvait avec ses pareils. La comtesse me raconta sa derniere entrevue avec lui.

            Comment l'art du moyen age a-t-il pu tomber dans l'oubli, et, pis encore, dans le mepris ?Cette disgrace a naturellement procede d'une reaction symetrique et contraire a la lente elaboration qui, du passe obscur, avait abouti aux magnificences du XIIIe siecle francais et chretien.... Mais le mouvement qui precipita la decadence de l'art gothique fut incomparablement plus rapide que le mouvement de son ascension. Celle-ci se prepara, se determina, s'accomplit en dix siecles environ; cent ans suffisent a la chute. - Il est vrai que, si l'on recherchait les origines de la Renaissance, il faudrait remonter, pour en retrouver les premiers symptomes, jusque dans le haut moyen age...

            Elle etait assez instruite pour sentir que tout commerce frauduleux est un attentat social, et, moi, j'en avais assez appris sur le mecanisme des societes pour comprendre qu'on n'echappe a aucune loi sans porter atteinte a tout l'equilibre de la legislation; mais dans l'espece, c...omme eut dit un avocat, je ne pouvais pas en vouloir a mon pere de n'avoir jamais creuse une notion qu'on ne lui avait point donnee des l'enfance, car il etait contrebandier de pere en fils comme la plupart des habitants des frontieres. C'est bien une maniere de banditisme, car on ne s'y fait pas faute de descendre les douaniers qui vous serrent de trop pres, et cette chasse au bon marche des denrees degenere facilement en une chasse a l'homme des plus meurtrieres. Sans doute il y avait longtemps que mon pere ne courait plus en personne ces aventures; mais il les faisait courir aux autres, etant devenu, comme la fin de son entretien avec ma mere me le revela, un des chefs dirigeants d'une sorte d'armee occulte composee de gens de toute espece, la plupart plus curieux de flibusterie que de vrai travail, et quelques-uns bons a pendre.

            Mais le Christ ! cette grande pensee personnifiee, ce type sublime de l'ame immaterielle, il etait toujours au-dessus de la nature humaine qu'il avait revetue. Il avait beau redevenir homme, il ne pouvait se cacher si bien qu'il ne fut toujours le premier entre les hommes. Vous, ...Lelia, ce qui m'effraie, c'est que, quand vous descendez de vos gloires, vous n'etes plus meme a notre niveau, vous tombez au-dessous de nous-memes, et vous semblez ne plus chercher a nous dominer que par la perversite de votre coeur. Par exemple, qu'est-ce donc que cette haine profonde, cuisante, inextinguible, que vous avez pour notre race ? Peut-on aimer Dieu comme vous faites, et detester si cruellement ses oeuvres ? Comment accorder ce melange de foi sublime et d'impiete endurcie, ces elans vers le ciel, et ce pacte avec l'enfer ? Encore une fois, d'ou venez-vous, Lelia ? Quelle mission de salut ou de vengeance accomplissez-vous sur la terre ?
