Lazy weekend here. Not yet ready to start on the Warwick Castle poems - it's all still brewing internally - and only engaged in research on some other projects, plus a little translation work.

So instead of wittering on about nothing much, or posting up yet another ancient poem from the Holland archives, I thought I'd treat you to a BLAST.

"Blast was the quintessential modernist little magazine. Founded by Wyndham Lewis, with the assistance of Ezra Pound, it ran for just two issues, published in 1914 and 1915. The First World War killed it, along with some of its key contributors. Its purpose was to promote a new movement in literature and visual art, christened Vorticism by Pound and Lewis."
