Overheard at Table 4: The Dover Beach Trilogy

Idea for The Blenders

The Monohans “Dissonance” 
- song, instrumental, about 11 minutes long.  It has a good subtly somnambulant mood.

Read Matthew Arnold’s “Dover Beach” ... then pause for a moment and read

Anthony Hecht’s “Dover Bitch,” which is a 1969 poem in direct response to Arnold's poem.

Then, just today I was shown a third ... John Brehm’s “Sea of Faith” - which is a wonderful deconstruction of the difficulties of teaching poetry - or teaching people to THINK!

Put some ocean waves in the background.

Instant classic!
