Delmore Schwartz - The Sin Of Hamlet

The horns in the harbor booming, vaguely,
Fog, forgotten, yesterday, conclusion,
Nostalgic, noising dim sorrow, calling
To sleep is it? I think so, and childhood,
Not the door opened and the stair descended,
The voice answered, the choice announced, the
Trigger touched in the sharp declaration!

And when it comes, escape is small; the door
Creaks; the worms of fear spread veins; the furtive
Fugitive, looking backward, sees his
Ghost in the mirror, his shameful eyes, his mouth diseased.

Arnold Evans says: March 1, 2011 at 4:34 pmThe leaders of the Islamic Revolution eeratcd this minority by cavalierly shredding orf and compounding their mistake by dis-enfranchsing them.How could this minority even attempt to change the law when it cannot even get its representatives elected to the Majlis?As for Majority-Minority; constructive politics has to do with that precisely; bringing people together. In US, Nixon could do that and so could Reagan.Furthermore, a religious political order, by definition, must be one in which all believers are accomodated, as much as possible. Not one in which one tries to exclude the other.
