manifesto

A Quote by Edward Paul Abbey on belief, credo, manifesto, tangibles, and reality

Belief?  What do I believe in?  I believe in sun.  In rock.  In the dogma of the sun and the doctrine of the rock. I believe in blood, fire, woman, rivers, eagles, storm, drums, flutes, banjos, and broom-tailed horses…

Edward Abbey (1927 - 1989)

A Quote by Sol Luckman on beginners luke, herman melville, reality, imagination, consciousness, drummon light, theater, character, protagonist, teacher, tradition, hope diamond, enlightenment, writing, writing light, literary theory, manifesto, and ars p

Once in every generation, if we’re lucky, a character shows up who can teach us about reality because he’s more real than ourselves. Melville called such a character a “Drummond light” after the type of light once used in theaters that was capable of providing illumination in many directions. May one of us create such a character. Better yet, let’s buck tradition and create a string of Drummond lights, each a brilliant facet of the Hope Diamond that is our new fiction. Let’s turn away, once and for all, from old Enlightenment tropes toward a new narrative of Enwritenment. Together let’s write light.
