Graves' Disease Graves' disease is an autoimmune disease characterized by a metabolic imbalance resulting from overproduction of thyroid hormones (thyrotoxicosis). Description It is named after Robert Graves, the 19th century Irish physician who first discovered the condition. In Graves' disease, the thyroid gland in the neck is diffusely enlarged and hyperactive, producing excessive thyroid hormones. Graves' disease can have an effect on many parts of the body such as the nervous system, eyes, skin, hair/nails, lungs, digestive system, muscles/bones and reproductive system. Causes Graves' disease is eight times more common in women than in men, occurs most frequently between the ages of 20 and 40 and often arises after an infection or physical or emotional stress. It has a familial tendency. The disease is characterized by the formation of autoantibodies that bind to receptors in thyroid cell membranes and stimulate the gland to hyperfunction. Symptoms Generally, the symptoms of Graves' disease are ident ...

A LONG LOVE POEM Love, begins one of Robert Graves’ most striking and best-known poems, is a universal migraine, / A bright stain on the vision / Blotting out reason. This realistic, some would say cynical attitude towards the idea of romantic love might, at first glance, appear to be somewhat at odds with our general expectations about the nature of conventional love poetry. In fact, it makes us question whether we are reading conventional love poetry at all. Yet Symptoms of love, which by its very title treats romantic love as a malady, is in many ways typical of Graves’ characteristic approach to the love poem. The unflinching posture adopted by the poet and the resigned tone we encounter in this poem show just how unwilling Graves was to take love or, for that matter, love poetry at face value. When reading the love poetry of Robert Graves we should expect to be surprised and entertained. This is because he has a tendency to view the love poem as not merely a vehicle for expressing unquali ...

I could have been watching 'Mothers, Murderers and Mistresses' on BBC4. It's a nice lead-in to double episodes of 'Parks & Recreation' (who recommended that to me - was it you, Karen Murphy? Good call and not just because it has the marvellously talented Amy Poehler and Rashida Jones). But, as my noggin is not well, I skipped it as they covered Livia and Messalina in the first two weeks and they're the two I was interested in (you can blame Robert Graves for that). Anyhoo, I caught ten minutes of 'The Apprentice' on BBC1. I haven't seen it since episode 1 so perhaps some of the, er, contestants have proved to be likeable. Probably not.

"As an elixir of wisdom and an intellectual Yoga, Sufism has been known, cherished and even practised in the West since time immemorial. It is hard to find a single great Western poet or thinker who has not been inspired by Sufism. Dr Johnson loved Sufi Oneness and pantheism; Voltaire in Candid saw Sufi philosophy as an antidote to the religious extremism of his time. Goethe loved Sufi poetry, Richard Burton and Robert Graves were keen on practicing Sufism. Sufism was cherished by Australia's greatest poet professor Alec Derwent Hope. Hegel draws on Sufi thought in his works. Danish fairy-tale writer Hans Christian Andersen was brought news of Sufi musicians and dancers - known as “Whirling Dervishes” - to Europe (Azari, 2011). cc syekh Moh Yasir Alimi

I recently went through my library in search of materials useful to folks doing research on the Goddess Freya. The two most relevant ones I was able to locate are Freyja – the Great Goddess of the North by Britt-Mari Näsström (Lund: Novapress, 1995) and Roles of the Northern Goddess by Hilda (Roderick) Ellis Davidson (New York and London: Routledge, 1998). I found both books to be well-researched and full of fascinating and detailed information. However, the Heathen reader will have to get past some of the terminology used in order to benefit from these books. By this I specifically mean the repeated use of such terms as “the Great Goddess” and “the Northern Goddess.” (The italics are mine in both cases). I do not believe that their use is meant to be taken in the ultimately non-polytheistic sense in which Robert Graves or Wiccans might use them. Nevertheless, I found their use to be somewhat annoying. Freyja – the Great Goddess of the North begins with a detailed listing of the source ...

The funniest thing about language is how the meaning of words change. Like "Have a *** old time" means something completely different then it did 60 years ago.

Here we find Demeter as Hag searching for The Kore, The Soul, Persephone her daughter portrayed in the church as St Germaine because the catholic church stole everything from the Irish church... St Germaine carry's the flowers that Persephone is out collecting when abducted by Hades and taken to the underworld of darkness, which are these days we live in...Demeter has three aspects as triple Goddess, Maiden, Mother and Hag, notice the MM of Maiden Mother, Mary Magdalene...Now the Goddess in her triple aspect her male consort is the Horned God, Pan...The other triad of the triple Goddess as explained by Robert Graves in the White Goddess are " Kore, Persephone and Hecate," Demeter being a name combining all three. Now why would Demeter as Hag be hidden like this???

Today's Science Fiction author highlight is on Fritz Leiber, writer of science fiction, fantasy and horror, poetry and plays. He, with Robert E. Howard and Michael Moorcock, is considered one of the fathers of Sword and Sorcery, according to Wikipedia. Fritz Leiber was born in 1910 and died in 1992. His parents were actors and he often toured with them. His first published story appeared in Unknown Magazine in 1939. He also appeared in films, two with his father Fritz Leiber Sr. and in the film noir classic "the Web" and the cult horror film "Equinox". But is his writing that interests me. He was very influenced by H.P. Lovecraft (his Cthulhu stories) and Robert Graves early on and later by Carl Jung and Joseph Campbell's "The Hero with a Thousand Faces" . He even received a letter of encouragement from Lovecraft. Leiber is also considered a forerunner of the modern urban horror story, with Ramsey Campbell saying Leiber was his greatest influence. Over the years, Leiber has won Nebula and Hugo awar ...
Photo by Karsh Robert Frost Robert Frost was born in San Francisco on March 26, 1874. He moved to New England at the age of eleven and became interested in reading and writing poetry during his high school years in Lawrence, Massachusetts. He was enrolled at Dartmouth College in 1892, and later at Harvard, though he never earned a formal degree. Frost drifted through a string of occupations after leaving school, working as a teacher, cobbler, and editor of the Lawrence Sentinel. His first professional poem, "My Butterfly," was published on November 8, 1894, in the New York newspaper The Independent. In 1895, Frost married Elinor Miriam White, who became a major inspiration in his poetry until her death in 1938. The couple moved to England in 1912, after their New Hampshire farm failed, and it was abroad that Frost met and was influenced by such contemporary British poets as Edward Thomas, Rupert Brooke, and Robert Graves. While in England, Frost also established a friendship with the poet Ezra Pound, who ...

By Jason Dempsey Best Defense office of the literature of combat. Foreign Policy website. As we approach the end of our time in Afghanistan it would serve us well to reflect on the poets of World War I, not only for their messages but for what we have lost with the absence of an art form that was so well-suited to provide a window into war. On the question of who writes of war and how is it portrayed, World War I was unique for two main reasons: 1) almost everyone fought, including those who saw themselves as artists first and soldiers second, and 2) poetry was a widespread vehicle for artistic outlet and social commentary, not yet pushed aside by radio, movies, and television. The result of that ubiquity of poetry as an artistic medium, along with the ease with which one could write it, even in a combat zone, is that we are inundated with art from the Great War that was created by those who experienced it. From Siegfried Sassoon, Wilfred Owen, and Robert Graves, we get a tactile feel for the war paired w ...

The best detailed discussion and historical evaluation of the Lilith myth will be found in The Hebrew Goddess, by Raphael Patai (Wayne State University Press, 3rd edition, 1978). Patai presents an in-depth evaluation of the important but oft ignored role played by the feminine in Hebrew myth and religion, following the story of the Hebrew goddess from antiquity through its manifestations in Kabbalah and in the developing myth of Lilith. We highly recommend this work to those interested in the story of Lilith.

As the most coveted literary award in the world, who should win the Nobel Prize in Literature is often the subject of heated debate. Czech writer Karel Capek was denied the prize in the 1930s because his anti-fascist writing offended the Nazi German government. Conversely, Argentine writer Jorge Luis Borges was allegedly denied the prize in the 1970s due to his support for the far-right South American governments of the time. In an attempt to avoid controversy, the nominations and discussions over who should be awarded the prize are kept a close secret for 50 years. However, this strategy seems merely to delay debate rather than avoid it. In January the world learnt that in 1962, the year American author John Steinbeck won, Karen Blixen, Robert Graves and Lawrence Durrell were also nominated. This has restarted the debate which raged at the time as to whether Steinbeck was worthy of the prize at all. The New York Times were shocked that a writer of ‘limited talent’ prone to ‘tenth-rate philosophizin ...
Cad Goddeu (Welsh: The Battle of the Trees) This is a sixth-century Welsh poem from the book The Romance of Taliesin. It tells the story of a battle fought between Gwydion and Bran. Gwydion won the battle by making the trees of the forest come to animated life and fight for him (hence the name). The battle originated when Amaethon stole a dog, a lapwing, and a roebuck from Arawn, the god of the Underworld (called Annwn). Robert Graves, who speculated that Bran and Arawn were names for the same Underworld god, wrote that the battle was probably not meant as a physical one but rather a struggle of wits and scholarship. Gwydion's forces could only be defeated if the name of his companion, Lady Achren was guessed (her name meant "Trees"), and Arawn's host could only be defeated if Bran's name were guessed (which Gwydion did). The trees who fought in the battle were also part of the Druidic alphabet known as Ogham, where each sound is represented by a pattern of notches and a particular tree. Each tree had a m ...

Phylogeny The Goddess has given us a duty of old, Her great gift in honour, for men to hold, To champion and protect her daughters fair, That none might harm so much as a hair. Maiden in white with her arrows and bow, Flowers in her hair, her dreams in full flow. Fingers and sleeve stained with schoolbook blots, Innocence protected by her girdle’s three knots. Libidinous Nymph-Mother all in scarlet, Bloodied from childbirth and divine harlot. Lying with her lovers under the night sky Holding them in thrall, need you ask why? Old sage wrapped warmly in darkest of blue, Font of all knowledge and cunning old shrew. Will teach you of herbs, the Goddess’s tune, Tales of the ancestors, the stars and the moon. Be not distracted by their natural lust, Give them their freedom and bind them with trust. Jealousy is a mark of the slaver’s tool, Unbecoming to men who’re more than mere fool. We need them to cope with our failings too, Not one rule for me and another for you, What’s sauce for the goose is sauc ...

Later life and death In 1960, Gardner's official biography, entitled Gerald Gardner: Witch, was published. It was written by a friend of his, the Sufi mystic Idries Shah, but used the name of one of Gardner's High Priests, Jack L. Bracelin, because Shah was wary about being associated with Witchcraft. In May of that year, Gardner travelled to Buckingham Palace, where he enjoyed a garden party in recognition of his years of service to the Empire in the Far East. Soon after his trip, Gardner's wife Donna died, and Gardner himself once again began to suffer badly from asthma. The following year he, along with Shah and Lois Bourne, travelled to the island of Majorca to holiday with the poet Robert Graves, whose The White Goddess would play a significant part in the burgeoning Wiccan religion. In 1963, Gardner decided to go to Lebanon over the winter. Whilst returning home on the ship, The Scottish Prince on 12 February 1964, he suffered a fatal heart attack at the breakfast table.

My brother Tom A Hull, just posted his "reading list" in honor of Veteran's Day: Waterloo: A Near Run Thing. (David Howarth). The final "just say no" to Napoleon; one day in 1815, 40,000 men and 10,000 horses were laid to waste in a Belgian cornfield. A detailed account of that day that will open your eyes. Good-Bye To All That. (Robert Graves). Graves was friends with Siegfried Sassoon and Wilfred Owens, the poets who so viscerally described the horrors of WWI trench warfare. Here Graves offers his WWI autobiography. Hiroshima Diary. (Michihiko Hachiya). There are two sides to every story and this one was written by a Japanese doctor treating people immediately after the atomic bomb exploded. A rare eyewitness account. A People's History of the United States. (Howard Zinn). Zinn died this year at 87 but his works will continue to affect readers for generations as he challenges the way school textbooks present American history. Five star stuff. The Coldest Winter. (David Halberstam). The Korean War is oft ...
FFAB are delighted to announce Sam Claflin as the actor who will play Robert Graves in The Laureate. The film, now...
When the days of rejoicing are over, When the flags are stowed safety away, They will dream of another wild 'War to End Wars' And another wild Armistice day. But the boys who were killed in the trenches, Who fought with no rage and no rant, We left them stretched out on their pallets of mud Low down with the worm and the ant. - Robert Graves

Fellow poets - did YOU know it was National Poetry Day?
That's it. No more book buying until I'm sorta caught up. Are there any other unfortunates out there who read more than one book at a time, depending upon mood and where you happen to be? I'm in the middle of a new biography on Saint Francis of Assisi, Evan Connel's "Son of the Morning Star" about Custer (2nd reading), "Deliverance from Little Bighorn" by a US Army doctor who was at Little Bighorn, "The Monks of Tibhirine" about 7 Trappist Monks who were martyred in Algeria in 1996, "Dakota" by Kathleen Norris and a biography of the poet Robert Graves. Between reading and salivating over Peachy's lusciousness it's no wonder I never seem to finish anything.
It has often been said that love, both sacred and profane, is the only true subject of the lyric poem. Nothing better justifies this claim than the splendid poems in this volume, which range from the writings of ancient China to those of modern-day America and represent, at its most piercing, a universal experience of the human soul. Includes poems by John Donne, Christina Rossetti, W. H. Auden, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Robert Graves, e. e. cummings, Dorothy Parker, William Shakespeare, Sappho, Bhartrhari, Anna Akhmatova, and W. B. Yeats, among many others.
This glossary has entries for deities and heroes mentioned in Robert Graves's White Goddess. Many of the deities and heroes are of Celtic origin, although Graves draws from all over the world.

I been re-reading Robert Graves: The White Goddess, King Jesus, and my favorite Homer's Daughter. I'll have to re-think my perhaps overly broad disparaging of 20th century literature. Besides, I do have that nearly complete collection of Nero Wolfe (Rex Stout) and PG Wodehouse on my shelf.
Yes there are duplicates, b/c I like the way they were written up...Some of these posters I made up using some pretty fantastic quotes, others I found already made up. regardless, enjoy...seems we are not alone, and there are far more of us out there than previously assumed. :) ~*~ *DISCLAIMER;

Robert Graves translation of "The Golden *** is pretty incredible. It's a Roman novel of initiation that contains one of the only descriptions of the goddess to survive the ancient world. This poor man has been turned into a donkey through his misadventures and curiosity. Isis pities him and pays him a nighttime visit to tell him how to become human again. Very beautiful; eating roses! : ) I wonder what it's symbolic of? "I shall order the High Priest to carry a garland of roses in my procession, tied to the rattle which he carries in his right hand. Do not hesitate, push the crowd aside, join the procession with confidence in my grace. Then come close up to the High Priest as if you wished to kiss his hand, gently pluck the roses with your mouth and you will immediately slough off the hide of what has always been for me the most hateful beast in the universe."
Robert Graves was a crucial source for my first novel, set in ancient Rome. (

I think that there are six canons of conservative thought- (1) Belief in a transcendent order, or body of natural law, which rules society as well as conscience. Political problems, at bottom, are religious and moral problems. A narrow rationality, what Coleridge called the Understanding, cannot of itself satisfy human needs. "Every Tory is a realist,'' says Keith Feiling: "he knows that there are great forces in heaven and earth that man's philosophy cannot plumb or fathom. "3 True politics is the art of apprehending and applying the justice which ought to prevail in a community of souls. (2) Affection for the proliferating variety and mystery of human existence, as opposed to the narrowing uniformity, egalitarianism, and utilitarian aims of most radical systems; conservatives resist what Robert Graves calls "Logicalism" in society. This prejudice has been called "the conservatism of enjoyment"-a sense that life is worth living, according to Walter Bagehot "the proper source of an animated Conservatism." ...
Robert Graves did not write a book called 'i clavdivs' which is what i asked for in the school library when i was 15.

I was having some thoughts with my honorary son, John, last night and I was reminded of an old poem. So, it's appropriate I think, to share this again. On Giving by Robert Graves Those who dare give nothing Are left with less than nothing; Dear heart, you give me everything, Which leaves you more than everything- Though those who dare give nothing Might judge it left you less than nothing. Giving you everything, I too, who once had nothing, Am left with more than everything As gifts for those with nothing Who need, if not our everything, At least a loving something.

"Genius not only diagnoses the situation but supplies the answers." - Robert Graves, writer, born today in 1895
...Much testimony appears in the Old Testament to corroorate Maris account of the prevelence of GODDESS WORSHIP among the Jews and their Cananite neighbors, who taught the nomadic shepards the worship of the MOTHER along with the rudiments of farming.. it is stated in, " the song of songs,"...by Robert Graves, 1973... ...Dr. Rapheal Patai, in his carefuly documented works, " Man and Temple and The Hebrew Goddess," shows that out of the 360 years that Solomons temple complex lasted in Jerusalem, the matriarchal Canaanite Goddess ASHERA, who represented the old farming population of Isreal, had been worshipped there for 240 as Jehovahs bride and sister with her wooden image publicly displayed. the tribe of AHSTER had originally been named in her honor. Dr. Patai points out that when Elijah slaughtered the 400 priests on Mount Carmel he left the priests of ASHERA unmolested; Baal was then Jehovahs rival male deity, thus, all the other male Gods had to be suppressed. namaste, william

Robert Graves, Director of US Census Bureau, writes in WaPo about importance of American Community Survey
No: there seems no escape from our difficulties until the industrial system breaks down for some reason or other... and nature reasserts herself with grass and trees among the ruins. Robert Graves, The White Goddess Return of the Goddess Artemis By Robert Graves Under your Milky Way And slow-revolving Bear, Frogs from the alder thicket pray In terror of your judgment day, Loud with repentance there. The log they crowned as king Grew sodden, lurched and sank: An owl floats by on silent wing, Dark water bubbles from the spring; They invoke you from each bank. At dawn you shall appear, A gaunt red-legged crane, You whom they know too well for fear, Lunging your beak down like a spear To fetch them home again.

My ex-wife and first great Love Meredith Rice died this week in Florida. One of the highlights of our years together was spending the summer of 69 in Mallorca in daily contact with Robert Graves. Meredith was a good artist and wonderful companion and we reconnected many times over the years, the last time 2007 in New Mexico where we first fell in love. She was a person who generated great passion and her beauty will outlast even my praise of her.

The greatest sadness I experienced as a young lad was the loss of our dairy herd to disease. Even after 50 years I still remember those pet Jerseys, and this week, thanks to Ange Mlinko, I came across a poem that deals with the subject. It's by Lynette Roberts, a Welsh poet, to whom Robert Graves dedicated "The White Goddess;" her neighbor, Dylan Thomas served as the best man at her wedding; and TS Eliot championed her work. Today would have been her birthday. Here's an excerpt from her "Lamentation" O the cold loss of cattle With their lovely big eyes, The emptiness of sheds, The rick stacked high. The breast of the hills Will soon turn grey As the dogs that grieve And I that fetched them in: For the good gates are closed In the yard down our way.
