Some disruption in my domestic set up for the next couple of months. I could see the effect yesterday.
Still I managed to get something out of it.
Terse, notes won’t make much sense.
I should be introducing the timeline of the poem. Its not composed by a single voice it develops over centuries. I should also be introducing the narrative, ‘the battle.’
But I will avoid the temptation. I have no idea what is going on in parts of the verse, which is rather interesting (for me), just not very comprehensible (for others).
I found myself wondering what a conclusion or introduction would look like. At the moment I am mostly interested in time and memory.
I have little idea how philosophers think but I suspect arguments surrounding one in many could be rehearsed and played out in this.
I think of the idea that this poem is devoid of ideas and strictly heroic.
I find that thought amusing, as it leaves me with the sense that having an idea of the verse is an accident waiting to happen.
Conclusion/ introduction an absence waiting to be filled. An accident waiting to occur.
If I run with that pattern, it leads to a terse conclusion I can make no sense of. It seems to fit, it contains no idea so its not yet a conclusion.
The forgetting of it.
Its the dead men tell no tales, yet here it is, aspect of the verse. I can’t make sense of it other than to note it seems to display some interest in time and memory.
It seems to have some idea of what it is doing.
I don’t, I have not been engaged in sustained writing and thought here over centuries. Things have yet to alter.
