I shall be, perhaps, more lucid if I give, briefly, the history of the vorticist art with which I am most intimately connected, that is to say, vorticist poetry. Imagisme, in so far as it has been known at all, has been known chiefly as a stylistic movement, as a movement of criticism rather than of creation. So much for the general category. Flaubert and De Maupassant lifted prose to the rank of a finer art, and one has no patience with contemporary poets who escape from all the difficulties of the infinitely difficult art of good prose by pouring themselves into loose verses.
Adams and Jefferson shared many similarities: Both were delegates to the Continental Congress and served on the committee to draft the Declaration of Independence.
Both served as foreign diplomats and eventually as presidents of the United States. Finally, both died July 4,on the country's fiftieth birthday. Despite the fact that they were political rivals during their presidential years, they became reconciled in old age as they reflected on their mutual accomplishments.
In fact, Adams is said to have spoken Jefferson's name moments before he died. John Adams was a leading advocate for the separation of the American colonies from England. A native of Braintree, Massachusetts, he received an education at Harvard before studying law.
As a young attorney in Boston, Adams saw growing political unrest in New England and throughout the colonies. He frequently fueled anti-British sentiment with newspaper editorials and other writings that defended the rights of colonial citizens against the distant authority of the British Crown.
Inafter serving in the Massachusetts House of Representatives, Adams was appointed a delegate to the newly formed Continental Congress. During the next few years, Adams became deeply involved in the steady colonial march toward separation from Britain.
Once the Continental Congress officially voted for independence on June 7,Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and two others were chosen to draft a manifesto declaring independence.
After a lengthy debate in which Adams vigorously defended the document before his fellow delegates, Congress accepted and ratified the final version of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, By denouncing the authority of the Crown, the signers of the declaration were committing a dangerous act of treason.
Nevertheless, their actions, and the stirring language of the document itself, would forever change the world and its concept of liberty and equality.
Over the next decade, when he wasn't busy writing and assisting with the war effort at home, Adams conducted official business abroad. Then, inhe was named America's first ambassador to England.
During these long periods away from home, Adams exchanged frequent letters with his wife, Abigail. These published letters and Adams's diary paint a delightful picture not only of John and Abigail and their family, but of their candid reactions to the historic events of the time.
InAdams received the second highest number of electoral votes in the bid for the presidency, hence he became vice president to George Washington's first presidency of the United States of America.
After serving eight years as vice president, in he succeeded Washington as president. During these years, a debate raged over the proper size and function of the federal government, and two political parties emerged to battle the issue.
Adams aligned himself with the Federalists, led by Alexander Hamilton, who favored a stronger central government. The opposing Democratic-Republicans, led by Thomas Jeffersonwere more egalitarian, and favored a sharply limited federal authority.
Eventually Adams alienated members of both parties, and left the presidency in bitter disappointment. Adams retired to his Massachusetts farm and quickly regained his stature as one of this country's elder statesmen and a founder of American democracy.COMMUNIQUE #3 Haymarket Issue "I NEED ONLY MENTION in passing that there is a curious reappearance of the Catfish tradition in the popular Godzilla cycle of films which arose after the nuclear chaos unleashed upon Japan.
