Default David Mason on Neruda

Online at the Hudson Review, Davey's fascinating essay on Neruda.

Very much worth reading!

"Genius is no proof of wisdom." True, and memorably phrased.

Well-worth my time, Cally, thanks, and congratulations to both Dave and the journal.

G'day, All!

I'm bumping this thread because Davey's essay on Neruda appears on 3 Quarks Daily today. They try to pick a representative best of articles/essays/critiques appearing across the media and all manner of journals.

When I wrote that this essay is worth reading, I wasn't blowing smoke!! haha! It really really is a great essay on Neruda, and a great piece of writing.

So if you haven't already, give it a go when you have a quiet half hour or so . . .

And while I'm here, Davey is giving a public lecture on 17 September at Melbourne University titled 'Turning to Voice: Poetry and the Public'. If there are any denizens of Melbourne lurking here, do come!

The former director of the Melbourne Writers Festival will be doing a podcast interview with Davey before the main event, so I hope to be able to share that with you here at a later date.

Yup, thank you, Cally. That seems a fairly apt overview of Neruda the man and the artist. Genius is no proof of wisdom: perhaps the best line in the piece.
