" The necessary changes must be made"
Hi everyone, this is my very last journal entry here!
I moved to a new account... To make things clear:

~truepoetryneverdies


~non-nobis-domine



:heart:To all my watchers, I'll be very happy if you will choose to follow my new account. There are no new deviations there yet, but I will continue to update the comic there (on friday as usual), if you are interested.
Thank you in advance!:heart:
Of course I'll rewatch all of you from the new account! :+devwatch:

:iconblinkofcourseplz::iconblinkthanksplz::iconblinkthanksfavplz::iconblinkthanksllamaplz: :icontardsinloveplz:

Before you ask...
there is nothing wrong with this account, aside from some ugly, old, lame and badly drawn deviations that I can't stand to see anymore.. ;)
Also the new username sounds better :XD:

Belated answers


I apologize with everyone who is waiting an answer from me :aww:. I really had a lot of work in the past two weeks. :work: It was a miracle to finish the last page on time...
Next week should be a little better, therefore I'll have the time to answer to the many comments and messages that are piling up in my mail box (and in my conscience :aww:).
Be patient, I'll answer to everyone! :heart::heart::heart::heart:

If you don't already know: I'm a total idiot in managing messages...:stupidme:  Please excuse my clumsiness, and if you have something urgent/important to say to me, probably the best way is to use DA notes or send me an email.

"Sisera and Jael" by Ottavio Vannini. Who said that classical paintings are boring? Also the Holy Bible is full of weird things..

Little Things



Little drops of water,
Little grains of sand,
Make the mighty ocean
And the pleasant land.

Thus the little minutes,
Humble though they be,
Make the mighty ages
Of eternity.


Reverend Dr. Ebenezer Cobham Brewer (1810- 1897)

Cose piccoline



Le cose piccoline
son pur belle,
chi non credesse a me
guardi le stelle.

Chi non mi crede
guardi il gelsomino:
l'odore è grande
e il fiore piccolino.

(Filastrocca popolare)

:iconflowerthnxplz:Thank you dear readers!!


Having the comic mirrored in each one of you is wonderful! Thank you for all the questions, critics, opinions that you are sharing with me. All these feedbacks influence the developement of the story, that is still forming. Each one of you (believe it or not) add something to it. Therefore thanks a lot.

Oh God! :iconfacepalmplz:


In past days I recieved a comment... It says:
"Personally I didn't really find something able to capture me and I noticed some kind of physical and ideological violence-related stuff that have no significant meaning [in your works]"
It comes from an italian speaking person, therefore I can't blame my weak english for this failure.
It is not english's fault... It is mine!!! I forgot to write a warning...:stupidme: Better later than never:

:star:You should read the comic as if it is a Medieval treatise...:star:


Otherwise it doesn't make any sense...I mean dont'stop at the symbols! You have to step beyond and think to what they refer. It is much like the finger pointing at the moon. ;)
For those who are unfamiliar with the 4 senses of scripture, I 'll give a practical example of this way of reading in the next point.

Meanings


In this comic meanings are layered in 5 levels. I'll try to explain them taking as example the last published page, here>>fav.me/d5070f8

Literal: What is going on in the story.
A monstruous being with a human head and a dog body, called Kubin, is tied to a broken pillar in the middle of the dump. Barbed wire around his neck.

Metaphorical meanings:

Historical: obviously enough some part of the story are inspired by extant hystorical facts...
Kubin is a symbol of the people slaughtered by nazis. His unhuman aspect stands for the dehumanization that captives underwent during the internment. And also for the cultural dehumanization of nazism, which refuses to considerate "human" some categories of people. The nothingness all around stands for the utter indifference in which the massacre was accomplished.

Psychological
Kubin is a depiction of a human being: a spiritual part (the head) chained to an animal body. He is tied to the broken pillar of his certainties. He could easily break away but prefers to cling on a familiar suffering than to face the emptiness and darkness that surrounds him...
What would you do in his place?

Philosophical: considerations about ethic, moral, law
What Kubin says closely refers to epistemology, that is how men acquire knowledge of the world and of themselves and how their judgement is formed. (Broadly speaking: man judges with a human measure [that human head again], every thing that differs is labeled as not-human. But what stands right on the line? Border line beings how are to be treated? Where is the line between human and not-human (inhuman) to be traced?

Eschatological
This is very personal and involves faith. Therefore I'll leave it up to you (and your God if you have one).

Do you want to do some more exercises? Take a look here: truepoetryneverdies.deviantart…

And who feels discord now or sorrow?
Love is the universe to-day--
These are the slaves of dim to-morrow,
Darkening Life's labyrinthine way.

Percy Bysshe Shelley

To whom it may concern: starting from this week, I decided to update the comic regularly,  I will upload a page on DA every friday...
Wish me good luck! ;)

The website for the comic is here: truepoetryneverdies.weebly.com…

My blog about the austrian painter Alfred Kubin here: alfred-kubin.blogspot.it/
Today, 10th april, is the birthday of an artist that is very important for me: Alfred Kubin (10 April 1877 – 20 August 1959).
Since I discovered his art, he has been like the North Star :star: for me, and I hope he will enlighten my path also in the years to come.
His words:

„Auf dem Grunde der Dinge ist alles Phantasie. Der Künstler ist nur eine Ausstrahlung unter unzähligen der göttlichen Einbildungskraft"



My translation:
„The foundation of things is all fantasy. The artist is only one of the countless expressions of the divine imagination"

Goodbye Alfred, until we meet on the other side!

⋇⋇⋇



Alfred Kubin is an artist whose talent is in my opinion very underestimated. I bet that only few of you know about him. I updated my webcam so you can see one of his works, title is "Fabeltier"
As a humblest token of my endless appreciation for A. Kubin, I recently launched a little blog to display also his less known works alfred-kubin.blogspot.it/searc…

:icondividerplz::icondivider1plz::icondivider1plz::icondivider1plz::icondivider1plz::icondivider2plz:

No man is an island


No man is an island,
Entire of itself.
Each is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main.
If a cloud be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less.
As well as if a promontory were.
As well as if a manor of thine own
Or of thine friend's were.

Each man's death diminishes me,
For I am involved in mankind.
Therefore, send not to know
For whom the bell tolls,
It tolls for thee.

(John Donne)

I Loved You
    I loved you; even now I must confess, Some embers of my love their fire retain; But do not let it cause you more distress, I do not want to sadden you again. Hopeless and tonguetied, yet I loved you dearly With pangs the jealous and the timid know; So tenderly I love you, so sincerely, I pray God grant another love you so.


by Aleksandr Sergeevič Puškin

The Brain—is wider than the Sky

The Brain—is wider than the Sky—
For—put them side by side—
The one the other will contain
With ease—and You—beside—

The Brain is deeper than the sea—
For hold them Blue to Blue—
The one the other will absorb—
As Sponges Buckets do—

The Brain is just the weight of God—
For Heft them Pound for Pound—
And they will differ—if they do—
As Syllable from Sound—

E. Dickinson
