  • POEM: The Sensation Of Nothingness, Translation Of Carlos Bousono's Poem: Sensacion De La Nada by T (no first name) Wignesan (10/27/2015 11:01:00 AM)

    Hello Scharlie! Thank you very much for letting me know. When I was a student of his, he was, I think, unmarried, and so I don't know whether some close relative survives him. Of course, he's the consummate literary lion, and it's a pity the English-writing world knows practically nothing about/of him. That's why I took the trouble to translate twenty-five poems of his, though, i must say, only a few showed any interest in his work. Happily these translations are being printed in a collection of mine, and when (they) it appears, I'll let you know if you care to check on my site in my biography rubrique. Were you also his student? Can you, please, let me know if there's someone or other to whom I may convey my condolences? I'd like to read some obituary notices, though. I, myself, treasure some interesting recollections of him during 1971-72. Every good wish. Wignesan

  • POEM: Villanelle: The Dilemma Of The Non-Violent - Part One by T (no first name) Wignesan (10/19/2015 12:40:00 PM)

    Thanks very much, Liza. I read the book when I was 21 and am still wondering about non-attachment. To be quite frank, it makes for much permissiveness, though, I might say, a necessary way out of the conundrum that violence poses. Your comment is about the book, not the poem, of course, but I thank you most of all for the encouragement! Every good wish. Wignesan

  • POEM: Limerick Crochetés: Once A Shy Lost Lass So-Called Orga-San by T (no first name) Wignesan (10/5/2015 12:11:00 PM)

    Hello Mohammed! Great having you calling back so soon. Thank you very much. Am already in your debt. Just don't have the time to repay visits. Not that I don't wish to, but that's how it is at my age. Thank you kindly. Every good wish. Wignesan
