William Blake is undoubtedly one of the greatest poets ever lived and still lives through his poetry. He is the Nostradamus of written and visual literature. I used to read his poetry aloud for myself to feel the power of his words better. This audiobook allowed me to hear his powerful words in their meaningful order to be read to me by several passionate readers. I recommend you to buy this audiobook, turn off all the lights (maybe only a candle if you like). Then allow yourself to sit an hour listen to the smoothly dancing words in and around and feel the sweet rush.
Certainly an interesting book. Not so much - as the title refers- to the wild life lovers, but more to the people that live for an idea and fulfill their dreams. Wherever it may take them. To step into uncertainty with so much trust to make it turn the other cheek.
The writer tells the story and riches the experience with his own parallel experiences. This gives a good angle to the story. No matter how alone you feel and how alone you want to be, you never are alone...in the wild.
i like this "listen"
i like the words, the wisdom, the stories..
they're simple, powerful and full of emptiness..
Frank Zappa says:
“If you end up with a boring miserable life because you listened to your mom, your dad, your teacher, your priest, or some guy on television telling you how to do your s--t, then you deserve it.”
But the opposite of this is also true. Doian Gray lives an exciting an pleasurable life, but understands much too late that there is a difference between pleasure and happiness.
I was surprised to notice the precision of this old sketch by Monty Pyton on how Oscar Wilde writes)
There are also couple of movief with the same name that portraits the book quite OK.
