    This Philistine prefers reading war stories, philosophy, sci-fi, and non-fiction, danke schon.

    I like visual art (EXCEPT for that modern art nonsense - I'm talking about art that doesn't look like someone threw up on an easel), and I love music of all sorts.

    But reading sentimental stanza-ed trash about how old yellowed linens smell like Grandma?

    NEIN danke. That WILL make me create "modern art" aka blowing chunks on the paper the poem is written on.

    Aren't I classy?

    I like some poetry. Paul Van Ostaijen is one of my favourites. He made a poem about a sewing machine, trying to capture the sounds it made. No meaning behind it - just rhytmical word-play. Awesome.
    And there are - of course - the poems of one of my former professors: Alfred Warrinier... they are poems about math. Even the most die-hard NT can love that

    I hate the in-depth analysis of poetry, trying to guess what the poet "meant". Same (even more) with prose, though - that author wanted to make the scene come alive with his details, he didn't want to "tell" us something with, of all things, the pattern of the pavement! I still can't pick up a Harry Mulish book thanks to some of my former teachers . I don't blame Mulish, but I'm still not able to break through that Pavlov reaction. Why weren't we allowed to enjoy the thing first and analyse later?
