Ada Verdun Howell - Early Work

Early Work

Her professional career begins with Anamorphosis where she goes beyond the exterior world of landscape and the body and she begins to explore the interior universe of love and selfhood.

The poem Unlanguid longeurs exhibits a new awareness of the world around her:

All the same, my desire had taught me
An object lesson.
He was a sceptic, I was an enthusiast.
He analysed, I synthesized.
He dealt with proofs, I with questions of faith.
He was, in short,
An historian.
I couldn't help being
A pilgrim;
But I knew now I must be
As dispassionate pilgrim
As possible.

Famous quotes containing the words early and/or work:

    No doubt they rose up early to observe
    The rite of May.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    One of the grotesqueries of present-day American life is the amount of reasoning that goes into displaying the wisdom secreted in bad movies while proving that modern art is meaningless.... They have put into practise the notion that a bad art work cleverly interpreted according to some obscure Method is more rewarding than a masterpiece wrapped in silence.
    Harold Rosenberg (1906–1978)
