    About " Jon Woodson "

  • Jon Woodson

    An innate surrealist sensibility was instilled in me during my time wandering the bomb damaged streets of Frankfurt, Germany at the age of eight years old in 1952 I never completely recovered from being taken to see Carl Sandburg when he was performing for Negro children at the Library of Congress in about 1956 Realizing the dangerous tendencies in my personality, my parents tried to turn me into a normal person by forceful applications of baseball on the radio and brutal tennis training Once I discovered science fiction and Samuel Beckett s novel Molloy read at the age of fourteen the hopes for my recovery were grim I was sent away to a New England preparatory school at fifteen, where I suffered a further decline by discovering Beat literature and dada I finished high school in Washington, DC, where I began to write poetry and was published in the Howard University literary magazine, Stylus, which ran a contest for high school students At the University of Rhode Island I published poems and edited the literary journal After earning an M.A in English from U.R.I in 1969, I taught at Lincoln University in the 13 College Curriculum Program TCCCP , a massive avant garde experiment in higher education From 1971 to 1979 I studied literature at Brown University and taught at George Mason University At Brown University I was taken under the wing of Edwin Honig, translator of Fernando Pessoa, and I also was associated with Keith and Rosmarie Waldrop I wrote a dissertation that read Melvin B Tolson s poetry through the lens of Gurdjieff s esotericism, a view that was immediately rejected by other scholars I have since worked to explore the esoteric cast of American modernism and have published To Make a New Race Gurdjieff, Toomer, and the Harlem Renaissance 1999 an account of how Tolson was introduced to esotericism by contact with the members of the Harlem Renaissance, many of whom were writing coded esoteric fiction and poetry I have continued to write and to publish on this topic, showing that other major figures were also involved in this tendency James Agee, Djuna Barnes, Dawn Powell, and Ralph Ellison I have taught at Towson University and Howard University As a Fulbright lecturer in American Literature, I taught at two Hungarian universities in 2006 I now am at work on a series of comic novels.

  • I don t know, how is one to rate a book like it s a hotel This reader enjoyed this writer s work very much The basic thread, if that s the correct term, is the securing of endowment funds for two chairs at a university for African Americans All else is wonderful amplification through satirical asides, parentheses and digressions that take the reader into the deep guts of the academic beast Rowland University is a ship of fools manic, incestuous, corrupt, lost in its sense of mission, possibly an [...]


  • I found the book dull It read to me like a screed from the author, a way to spew out pent up venom against strong women.
