He had nine sisters and one brother.
Big talk; Small Minds; Short Poems: This essay begins with the seemingly innocent and the maliciously rhetorical question: Who hired Bill Moyers to destroy American poetry?
The reality is poets, who have owned and operated the assembly line of the "self" for the last fifty years, have destroyed what little authority poetry had established with the moderns.
A Festival of Poets is actually devoid of poetry. In reality it is full of well-meaning ego surges from "perfectly" nice people who unfortunately write poetry. As far as the communication of truth goes: The Moyers poets are "enlightened" without, in the context of that process, understanding what that encompasses.
Every spiritual resistance [Enlightenment principles encounter] serves merely to increase [their] strength. Which means that enlightenment still recognizes itself even in myths. Whatever myths the resistance may appeal to, by virtue of the very fact that they become arguments in the process of opposition, they acknowledge the position of dissolvent rationality for which they reproach the Enlightenment.
One result of the success of Enlightenment science and technology has been the flourishing of any western taxonomy that yields to the conformal processes of mathematization and quantification.
This is not to say that poetry should attempt to emulate these formal constraints. Having no opportunity to participate in the hegemony of reductive systems, poetry quite naturally is in an adversarial position.
Even the Moyers poets perceive this as demonstrated by their anti-intellectual cant. However the Moyers poets are so little versed in what they are criticizing that their critiques appear childish.
Further, they contradict their own sentiments by borrowing, unwittingly, from the underlying hermeneutics of quantifiable systems to support their inevitably empty images, precipitate metaphors and soporific circumstances. Processes of quantification have produced what F. Hayek calls "scientistic" disciplines.
Among these "humanist" taxonomies are economics, psychology and sociology.
When poetry has perceived ideological and thematic advantage, it has borrowed heavily from the latter two paradigms.
Without studying the gulf established between the actual and its conformal expression that has fueled the success of the social sciences, poets, through their soft science affinities, have introduced into their language a shorthand for quantification which has obliterated the distinction between the actual and its numerical value.
The Moyers poets and by extension most others in various ways, by sympathetic borrowing from the "scientistic" disciplines, have created an ineffectual and sloppy version of Enlightenment values of formality and quantification.
In this poetic morass, only the sappy survive. Major responsibilities of poetry as an expression of the aformal are ignored.
For example, in this atmosphere of ignorance, where will poetic discourse be if the imposition of quantifiable systems upon the actual turns out to be the fundamental trope responsible for ecological devastation?
Because the scientific-technological paradigm seems to have seized control of matters of the intellect, the Moyers poets are all too willing to cede all manner of this discourse to elements of the dominant culture. The Moyers poets take a decidedly anti-intellectual stance.
