Nyein Way

(19.1.1962 / Yangon)

An Ir-radical populist-realist ====================


a) Poetry, then, is contrasted with history and the world; it's outside cause and effect and even reason. ('I had no idea what I meant.') We look to poetry, Alexander says, for 'what is deeply felt and is essentially unsayable.' The use of poetry is to value those things that are unpragmatic and unmundane. Poetry is valuable precisely because it's not historical/political/economic—because it isn't part of the world of cause and effect.

b) poetry that is important because of what it is, rather than because of what it says.

c) a-radical realist

A Tree, a pregnant cloud, a boat and a digital screen
an idea art
an information management art
an no-medium art
a 21st century human being with multi-dimentional insight and reality
a poem is not only born but also made and taken as reality-friendly attitude

d) simplicity, honest communication, humanistic values and civic values are now irradical and surreal.
