Other thoughts about the grave
 
Grave as the metaphor of the critical drivel that has accumulated around his work since his death. At first it was good, then it became manure shite repetition, what was curiosity becomes the reflexive self preservation of a class prejudice.

In a Deleuze like pose one ca ask who does Milton take behind. MIlton the Latin Secretary of Cromwell, Milton the mysogyne. Latin the blind man on the run Milton is the class  poet of his age: what a bore, as one drills through the last bks. Always so derivative everywhere of Shakespeare, this religious maniiac, a man who neglects the Irish and exaltsthe Bible one strange cocatoo of british nonsense One can go on and on....
Tracking this and tracing this...
yet the grave becomes the visible site and is indeed the visible localae of violation. THe poets remains were stolen,removed, desecrated, put back; Milton's dead body is the dead subject of his reified name. His fit fame for few is a curse. He remains, like TS Eliot, the most cursed of the British poet.s
 
THe more one reads Paradise Lost the less there is. One realizes in fact that the Waste Land began with this lengthy burial of Christianity, its last aborted effort at justifying of course a god that cannot be justified.
 



Poetry is a way of life.

      Make yer own bloody body without organs.
                                      We are difference engineers, ok?
