After reading Edgar Allan Poe. Something the critics have not noticed: a new literary world pointing to the literature of the 20th Century. Scientific miracles, fables on the pattern A+ B, a clear-sighted, sickly literature. No more poetry but analytic fantasy. Something monomaniacal. Things playing a more important part than people; love giving away to deductions and other forms of ideas, style, subject and interest.

Rutherford’s first disintegration experiment, and Chadwick’s discovery of the neutron had a style that is different from that of experiments made with giant accelerators.
I think there’s a difference between the type of folk music that people put into the box of folk music and then there’s the kind of folk music that I aspire to and am in awe of, and that is the kind of folk music where it’s very limited tools – in most cases a guitar, in a self-taught style that is idiosyncratic and particular to that musician.
