Walt Whitman, When I Heard the Learn’d Astronomer

leave a comment »

illustrated by Loren Long

Walt Whitman

When I heard the learn’d astronomer;
When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns
before me;
When I was shown the charts and the diagrams, to add,
divide, and measure them;
When I, sitting, heard the astronomer, where he
lectured with much applause in the lecture-room,
How soon, unaccountable, I became tired and sick;
Till rising and gliding out, I wander’d off by myself,
In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time,
Look’d up in perfect silence at the stars.

Thoreau, Chomsky, Whitman and Shetterly

“The law will never make men free; it is men who have got to make the law free.”


“…jingoism, racism, fear, religious fundamentalism: these are the ways of appealing to people if you’re trying to organize a mass base of support for policies that are really intended to crush them.”


“This is what you shall do: love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to everyone who asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown.”

법정스님이 생각나는, <Walden>과 <Civil Disobedience>로 알려진 Henry David Thoreau(1817 ~ 1862), 참여연대를 떠올리게 만드는, 정부의 거짓을 들춰내고 진실을 말할 수 있는 개개인의 책임을 강조한 언어학자 Noam Chomsky(1928 ~ ), 그리고 자본화된 우리에겐 너무 버거운, 그럼에도 불구하고 가슴 깊이 품고,… 우려내야할 Walt Whitman(1819 ~ 1892)…

….Robert Shetterly(1946 ~ )가 초상에 살며시 얹어 놓은, 우리보다 한결 뜻깊게 살아가는 진실들…

그리고, 그의 그림에 울림을 더할 법한, 마치 그의 그림평을 하신듯한 Whitman(1819 ~ 1892)과 Emerson(1803 ~ 1882)의 말씀…
