8th May 2019: Mr Ben, Claire O. and Lisbon Book Faire 2019

talesforlove

Sometimes it is possible to find messages and suggested life “paths” and adventures in poetry and short stories without, however, minimizing poetics. This is the case with the work of Mr. Ben (Chimezie) an author from Nigeria, whose work has just been published in e-book and paperback formats. His work is the one of a person who searches peace and harmony through literature. We invite you to find his writings here:

Today, we also invite you to find a beautiful poem by Claire O’Connell (Ireland) winner of the International Contest Nature 2018-2019. In this poem you will find the unique association between ice and music, in a mysterious walk among castles of awaken dreams. Forget the present day, enter this “feeling”.

 

Iced Stone

 

 

There is a voice inched on ice stoned walls,

Hurled in an echo of phantom deep lunges,

Faded fast on a midnight run,

I was the girl without a song,

Longing for my hymn to break me free,

I yearned for you beyond the ocean sea.

 

The tears of rivers by lakes iced stone,

Voices haunt the nightmares which left me all alone.

 

I think of you in dreams gone wrong,

I only hear you call there,

For I awake and you have disappeared.

 

hat is an iced stone wall without a castle,

It simply melts in the heat,

All the melted water sings,

It sings the waves to sleep,

But not me I stay awake,

I walk these waters all alone,

The storm before me has passed,

But it robbed with it your soul.

 

Finally, we inform you that the Lisbon Book Faire 2019 is almost starting: already 29th May, until 16th June.

We would also want to drop a few words about the marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle: marvellous and inspiring event that took our attention for a few hours even if with intervals to dream.

Let's visit this news from The Guardian and listen this music from Ed Sheeran...

The Chainsmokers & Coldplay - Something Just Like This (Lyric)

talesforlove

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FM7MFYoylVs

 

Lyrics:

 



I've been reading books of old

The legends and the myths

Achilles and his gold

Hercules and his gifts

Spiderman's control

And Batman with his fists

And clearly I don't see myself upon that list

But she said, where'd you wanna go?

How much you wanna risk?

I'm not looking for somebody

With some superhuman gifts

Some superhero

Some fairytale bliss

Just something I can turn to

Somebody I can kiss

I want something just like this

Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo

Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo

Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo

Oh, I want something just like this

Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo

Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo

Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo

Oh, I want something just like this

I want something just like this

I've been reading books of old

The legends and the myths

The testaments they told

The moon and its eclipse

And Superman unrolls

A suit before he lifts

But I'm not the kind of person that it fits

She said, where'd you wanna go?

How much you wanna risk?

I'm not looking for somebody

With some superhuman gifts

Some superhero

Some fairytale bliss

Just something I can turn to

Somebody I can miss

I want something just like this

I want something just like this

Oh, I want something just like this

Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo

Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo

Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo

Oh, I want something just like this

Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo

Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo

Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo

Where'd you wanna go?

How much you wanna risk?

I'm not looking for somebody

With some superhuman gifts

Some superhero

Some fairytale bliss

Just something I can turn to

Somebody I can kiss

I want something just like this

Oh, I want something just like this

Oh, I want something just like this

Oh, I want something just like this

interview... Paula Hawkins

talesforlove

During the Book Market Fair in Lisbon (2017) it was possible to interview Paula Hawkins. It was a very exciting experience and a privilege to speak with a writer with such a big success in thriller novels. Her answers were very important to us in order to better understand who is a writer and how life influences their work.

 

 

What does being a writer mean to you?

Writing is more a vocation than a profession: I’m lucky enough to be able to earn a living by doing it, but I think I would write – just as I always have written – even if I wasn’t published.  Since childhood I have relished making up stories: it took until I was in my thirties to find the confidence to show those stories to others, but the urge to create fiction has never left me.

 

Which season of your life do you think had the most influence on your writing?

Possibly my late teens/early twenties, which was the time at which I left Zimbabwe, where I grew up, and moved to London, where I live now. Those years were turbulent, and often lonely – I wrote a great deal at the time. At nineteen, I moved to Paris and lived there for a year. That was the first time I had lived alone, in a foreign city, speaking a language I struggled to master. It was lonely, again, but exciting too.

 

Is it possible for a writer to create their work without consideration for the feelings of the people around them?

I think perhaps it is possible, though I’m not sure that it should be. Writing is, for me, an exercise in empathy, in understanding others, in being able to place yourself in the position of another and imagine their thoughts and feelings. It would be strange then if while imagining the thoughts and feelings of fictional characters, one were to ignore the feelings of the real people in the society we live in.

Life and Literature 2

talesforlove

Dear friends, good evening. Today is one of those days when I leave here some words about literature. I hope you enjoy and comment. The literature can be seen, in my opinion, as a way to get what we do not have or do not find around us. Maybe I'm exaggerating, some people may think when reading these lines, but if you think about it, why the "fantastic" has success as literary style, in a world that tends to be more uniform, dispite the innovation (and the action to be different) are said to be something that should be followed? Also, why the novels are able to capture so many readers in a context where divorces are so frequent? I have no certainties, but that the hypothesis of an inner search is not unreasonable, it is not ... See you soon, and good reading!
