Reading, Looking, Listening, . . . Questioning

Zeteo has always attempted to capture the loving, passionate interests of its writers, opening a space for those who seek to question, reveal, connect, and, above all, explore. This time, however, the engagement seems more visceral—and more collaborative. This fall, our writers see meaning as something jointly constructed rather than found or asserted by a single […]

A point of information... This book was translated as "A Fortnight in the Wilderness" and included as Appendix 2 in "Democracy In America: Historical-Critical Edition", edited by Eduardo Nolla.

And, continuing the segue-ing, here's an old (and traditional) Gary Snyder poem I just came across yesterday: Seaman’s Ditty I’m wondering where you are now Married, or mad, or free: Wherever you are you’re likely glad, But memory troubles me. We could’ve had us children, We could’ve had a home— But you thought not, and I thought not, And these nine years we roam. Today I worked in the deep dark tanks, And climbed out to watch the sea: Gulls and salty waves pass by, And mountains of Araby. I’ve travelled the lonely oceans And wandered the...
