What does art have to offer?

It offers us a challenge we didn't ask for, stimulation we thought we were too numb to feel, provocation for our complacency. Art, at its best, shakes things up internally, creating the necessary conditions for movement, progression, maybe growth. Art is the best friend entertainment ever had, which by itself would never have the power to wake us from our unexamined but deeply held assumptions and feelings.

Franz Kafka believed we “ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us. If the book we are reading doesn’t wake us up with a blow on the head, what are we reading it for? ...we need the books that affect us like a disaster, that grieve us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside us.”

Is it true that some people have more artistic vision than others, or is this kind of seeing equally available to all?

Imaginary Worlds

Is a fictive imaginary world more engaging if it's realistic or fantastic?

I'm getting ready to teach a "topics in literature" course at West Chester University, and I'm returning to one of my favorite themes, imaginary worlds. Although every literary world is an imaginary world, some are more obviously imaginary than others. In the pop culture, there are signs that the there's a turn of the wheel from "reality tv" to more obviously imaginary worlds like "Heroes." Our fascination with… Continue

In the beginning of August 2008 I was doing great. I went to the gym 3 times a week for 3 hours each time. I had lost weight and had a nice tone coming.

In the middle of August a leg press came down on top of my head while i was trying to get it reset to the proper location so I would be able to use the equipment. I got very dizzy and had to go home, that was the end of my…
