More accessible Eliot, from Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats, which inspired the musical Cats (which I can't vouch for). It's children's verse but still technically adept, virtuosic really.

Not the best of all possible readings, but not a bad one. This I would assert is the best poem of the twentieth century in English.
This book was a thirty-year project, the author was an art history professor but he learned Sanskrit and Greek, and compared the texts. He discusses how the Greek Miracle was considerably more Eastern than has been represented.
Three of my favorite artists are female surrealists whom I hadn't heard of until a few years ago, despite having an interest in surrealism from my teens. They were all trained by Max Ernst.

I used to run Turner Classics on the television nonstop, in the room adjacent to my work space. One day I stopped to watch the Mexican Spitfire movies, and I was impressed by an actor called Leon Errol, who plays a few different roles in the films. One of the roles is Lord Epping, who owns and embodies a distillery. He was from Australia. An unrecognized genius. The Mexican Spitfire is Carmelita, an exuberant, combative woman who marries into an Anglo family.
