Engler on Lindsay



Here's a paper on Lindsay by Balz Enger I found while doing research on my upcoming presentation at the Lindsay Home (April 28, 2:00 p.m.) I was looking for Lindsay's comments on his "Gospel of Beauty" as found in his self-published Letter on My Four Programmes for Committees in Correspondence. Engler's papers describes what I was looking for.

Example:

"The first programme, on the Gospel of Beauty, consists of poems 'threaded together with a discussion of Democracy and Art; it is intended for art schools and departments.'" Also,

"He insists that his audiences should learn his poems by heart beforehand, or at least be familiar with them."

"He insists that his audiences should learn his poems by heart beforehand, or at least be familiar with them."

I've heard this before in regard to Lindsay, and I've always found this fact fascinating. I can't imagine a poet expecting his audience members to have memorized his work prior to speaking with them. I'm not familiar with other writers who expected so much from their readers.

This quote was extracted from a letter of instruction to potential hosts who were arranging for students to hear him, so it should be seen in that context.

However, every poem or paper he ever wrote is steeped in lofty expectations of his readers.
