Stone on Clinton

Stone on Clinton 

If Hilary Clinton decides to run for President in 2016, one Hollywood star who won't be cheering is director Oliver Stone. "I can't stand her, " the man who gave us JFK and Scarface told The Guardian. "She's been a hawk for years. She was against the Contras. She voted for the Iraq war. She urged Obama to send in more troops to Afghanistan. She's always taken the 'America is indispensable' routine and, most recently, she wrote an article for Foreign Affairs. She spoke of the 21st century as America's Pacific century, arguing that China can and should be contained. She's like those idiots on Fox News who make an enemy of China by presenting them as a threat. Who's the threat? We have 800 to 1, 000 foreign bases;they have one. " Stone, an "Eisenhower Republican" who fought in Vietnam, is now a "Ch�vez-admiring Buddhist". 

Neruda tribute

The body of the great Chilean poet Pablo Neruda was exhumed last week in order to see if the poet died a natural death or was poisoned by Pinochet's men. The Chinese dissident artist Ai Weiwei has made a huge 900-square-meter painting dedicated to the poet. It was unveiled recently in Valparaiso, where Neruda lived. Entitled A Pablo (To Pablo), the painting explores a touchy political issue. It shows dark-toned images of the Senkaku Islands, a small East China Sea archipelago, which are at the center of a bitter territorial dispute between China and Japan. Chinese marine surveillance vessels regularly patrol what Beijing says are its waters around the islands, prompting accusations of territorial incursions by Tokyo. The painting carries a verse from the poem Cabo de Chile by the artist's father, Ai Qing, who dedicated the poem to his friend Neruda.

Divorce poetry

The Pulitzer Prize for poetry has gone to Sharon Olds for her book of poems, Stag's Leap, that explores the anguished months leading to the end of a long marriage. An excerpt from the title poem: When anyone escapes, my heart leaps up. Even when it's I who am escaped from, I am half on the side of the leaver. It's so quiet, and empty, when he's left. I feel like a landscape, a ground without a figure.
