A Panorama of Anarchy in

The waste land

Looking further into Stirner’s desiring man and Nietzsche’s superman as the terminus of Romanticism, and how such egoisms have become the formative stuff of the modern human.

It looks at Lord Byron’s poetry in The Waste Land, Nietzsche’s creed of the nobles, Darwin’s descent of man and the machine Adam of Futurism. The role of the infamous fragmentation of the poem is examined, with Hermann Hesse’s warning of the downfall of Europe.

Euphoria

The Scream that pierces nature

Revealing the mythic layer that unifies the greatest poem ever written, as the dark Adam of egoist modernity assaults the typist as Eve, and as all women.
Meet the Satans of Milton and Baudelaire, the satanic hero of Romanticism and Mephistopheles. See how the poetry and music of the poet-songstress Sappho is of very ancient origin, and how it is transported to 1920s London, site of the Roman Londinium. Learn of the battle of creeds in the Church of Magnus Martyr, which holds the carbuncle gem, and how that relates to Eliot’s battle with Nietzsche and his superman, the new man of the future.
