5.0 out of 5 stars Snakes and Ladders, 29 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
"Daylight is for power, the night for violence." There is menace all about us. Innocence is that which is unwary and therefore destined to fall. To fail to recognize evil because of a pretense of normality will ensure disaster. Hidden from us are the serial "coincidences" which make up our seemingly "free" movements.We can move this way or that, but time is not linear and the future may not necessarily lie ahead. There is an older woman, just out of prison for some kind of political activity. She has hitchhiked to Paris to search for a comrade. In the city she is befriended by a young leather-jacketed priestess of the surreal and dangerous Paris behind the "real one" who vows to protect her, and they wander through the city on paths laid out by a board game they discover in a stolen briefcase. They will find clues but no questions, a body but no reasons; the "comrade" appears and disappears, becoming more menacing all the while. This film is a masterpiece that will haunt you as it has haunted me for almost 30 years. Analyze it at your peril...

5.0 out of 5 stars Saving Language, 26 July 2012
"In Praise of the Garrulous" is a brilliant meditation on language, both written and spoken, examining language's origins and development. But most particularly it is an ecological work that focuses on the current threat to language diversity, the dangers of language "species" extinction and the erosion of individual language skills. Globalization seems to be increasingly moving us towards a mono-culture and mono-language. This is not an academic work but speaks to a lay audience. What makes this book such an excellent read is Allan Cameron's passion for the subject. It is a book created from personal vision and necessity as if the author felt it had to be written.


Presbyopia (Vagabond)
Presbyopia (Vagabond)
by Allan Cameron
Edition: Paperback
Price: £10.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Poetry about Ideas, 26 July 2012
This review is from: Presbyopia (Vagabond) (Paperback)
In this excellent little book Allan Cameron presents a collection of his "presbyopic" poetry accompanied by an essay laying out his theory in which he divides poets into two camps: the near sighted (myopic) and the far sighted (presbyopic). On the one hand, in this duality, the myopic poet is confessional and solipsistic and on the other hand the presbyopic poet suppresses the self while viewing the world from a distance. For those who like poetry that is about ideas and not merely emotional self expression this book is a must read.
