  • POEM: All Ignorance Toboggans Into Know by Edward Estlin Cummings (2/12/2005 10:09:00 PM)

    i really like this poem
    it is a great one for fomenting discussions among students
    regarding the human condition
    and mans inquisitive spirit
    all ignorance toboggans into know
    means that given time
    human intuition gravitates toward enlightenment
    in the same way that london said that
    all life makes for light
    the gravitation toward enlightenment
    is an upward fall
    if one can taste the deliciousness
    of that irony
    trudges back to ignorance again
    means that the more we know
    the more we know we dont know
    but rather than frustrating us
    that should invigorate and excite us
    because knowledge quest is a lot like sport
    even snow melts means that
    there are periods
    both historically and personally
    when progress lies dormant
    and proceeds not a lot
    history is too small for even me
    means that there isnt enough time
    it also means that theres too much to know
    but thats ok
    because again it is an exhilarating game
    we'll move away still further: into now
    means that history time and knowledge
    are fluid like a river
    they never stand still
    and are hard to quantify exactly
    but that's still ok
