What they really mean is, a rhythm of poetry that comes out of the Nuyorican Poets Cafethat came out of the slams.
In a interview, Bob Holmanwho founded the Nuyorican Poets Cafe 's poetry slam and appeared on Season 4 of the show, applauded Def Poetrynoting:. I'm real happy poetry is on television. My hat is off to Russell Simmons, who has found a way to get poems on HBO in a way that feeds his own business.
It gives him the back credentials for his hip-hop label, and at the same time he's magnanimous towards the art of poetry, giving us a place like that. It's a great, great moment, just as Def Poetry Jam on Broadway was a great moment, too. However, Marc Smiththe founder of the Poetry Slam movement, is more critical of the program. Smith decries the intense commercialization of the poetry slam, and refers to Def Poetry as "an exploitive entertainment [program that] diminished the value and aesthetic of performance poetry.
As of summerthere has been no word about the possibility of a Season 7. Chance the Rapper will host this season. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Soft Skull Press ISBN Large explosions in the background throw light through the city gates and spill into the water in the midground; according to writer Walter S. Gibson, "their fiery reflection turning the water below into blood". Some are shown vomiting or excreting, others are crucified by harp and lute, in an allegory of music, thus sharpening the contrast between pleasure and torture. A choir sings from a score inscribed on a pair of buttocks,  part of a group that has been described as the "Musicians' Hell".
The focal point of the scene is the Bird Song - Duality (2) - Dark Age (File), whose cavernous torso is supported by what could be contorted arms or rotting tree trunks.
His head supports a disk populated by demons and victims parading around a huge set of bagpipes—often used as a dual sexual symbol  —reminiscent of human scrotum and penis. The tree-man's torso is formed from a broken eggshell, and the supporting trunk has thorn-like branches which pierce the fragile body. A grey figure in a hood bearing an arrow jammed between his buttocks climbs a ladder into the tree-man's central cavity, where nude men sit in a tavern-like setting.
The tree-man gazes outwards beyond the viewer, his conspiratorial expression a mix of wistfulness and resignation. Many elements in the panel incorporate earlier iconographical conventions depicting hell.
However, Bosch is innovative in that he describes hell not as a fantastical place, but as a realistic world containing many elements from day-to-day human life. Animals are shown punishing humans, subjecting them to nightmarish torments that may symbolise the seven deadly sinsmatching the torment to the sin. Sitting on an object that may be a toilet or a throne, the panel's centerpiece is a gigantic bird-headed monster feasting Bird Song - Duality (2) - Dark Age (File) human corpses, which he excretes through a cavity below him,  into the transparent chamber pot on which he sits.
Further to the left, next to a hare-headed demon, a group of naked persons around a toppled gambling table are being massacred with swords and knives. Other brutal violence is shown by a knight torn down and eaten up by a pack of wolves to the right of the tree-man.
During the Middle Agessexuality and lust were seen, by some, as evidence of humanity's fall from grace. In the eyes of some viewers, this sin is depicted in the left-hand panel through Adam's, allegedly lustful, gaze towards Eve, and it has been proposed that the center panel was created as a warning to the viewer to avoid a life of sinful pleasure.
In the lower right-hand corner, a man is approached by a pig wearing the veil of a nun. The pig is shown trying to seduce the man to sign legal documents. Lust is further said to be symbolised by the gigantic musical instruments and by the choral singers in the left foreground of the panel. Musical instruments often carried erotic connotations in works of art of the period, and lust was referred to in moralising sources as the "music of the flesh".
There has also been the view that Bosch's use of music here might be a rebuke against traveling minstrels, often thought of as purveyors of bawdy song and verse. The dating of The Garden of Earthly Delights is uncertain. Ludwig von Baldass considered the painting to be an early work by Bosch. Both early and late datings were based on the "archaic" treatment of space.
Internal evidence, specifically the depiction of a pineapple a " New World " fruitsuggests that the painting itself postdates Columbus' voyages to the Americasbetween and The Garden was first documented inone year after the artist's death, when Antonio de Beatis, a canon from MolfettaItaly, described the work as part of the decoration in the town palace of the Counts of the House of Nassau in Brussels.
The prominence of the painting has led some to conclude that the work was commissioned, and not "solely Early Spanish writers referred to the work as La Lujuria "Lust". The aristocracy of the Burgundian Netherlandsinfluenced by the humanist movement, were the most likely collectors of Bosch's paintings, but there are few records of the location of his works in the years immediately following his death. De Beatis wrote in his travel journal that "there are some panels on which bizarre things have been painted.
They represent seas, skies, woods, meadows, and many other things, such as people crawling out of a shell, others that bring forth birds, men and women, white and blacks doing all sorts of different activities and poses. The work's popularity can be measured by the numerous surviving copies—in oil, engraving and tapestry—commissioned by wealthy patrons, as well as by the number of forgeries in circulation after his death.
These copies were usually painted on a much smaller scale, and they vary considerably in quality. Many were created a generation after Bosch, and some took the form of wall tapestries. The De Beatis description, only rediscovered by Steppe in the s,  cast new light on the commissioning of a work that was previously thought—since it has no central religious image—to be an atypical altarpiece. Many Netherlandish diptychs intended for private use are known, and even a few triptychs, but the Bosch panels are unusually large compared with these and contain no donor portraits.
Possibly they were commissioned to celebrate a wedding, as large Italian paintings for private houses frequently were. Inhowever, the Duke of Alba confiscated the picture and brought it to Spain,  where it became the property of one Don Fernandothe Duke's illegitimate son and heir and the Spanish commander in the Netherlands.
The triptych was not particularly well-preserved; the paint of the middle panel especially had flaked off around joints in the wood. Little is known for certain of the life of Hieronymus Bosch or of the commissions or influences that may have formed the basis for the iconography of his work.
His birthdate, education and patrons remain unknown. There is no surviving record of Bosch's thoughts or evidence as to what attracted and inspired him to such an individual mode of expression.
Scholars have debated Bosch's iconography more extensively than that of any other Netherlandish artist. Although Bosch's career flourished during the High Renaissancehe lived in an area where the beliefs of the medieval Church still held moral authority. Bosch reproduces a scene from Martin Schongauer 's engraving Flight into Egypt. Conquest in Africa and the East provided both wonder and terror to European intellectuals, as it led to the conclusion that Eden could never have been an actual geographical location.
The Garden references exotic travel literature of the 15th century through the animals, including lions and a giraffe, in the left panel. The giraffe has been traced to Cyriac of Anconaa travel writer known for his visits to Egypt during the s. The exoticism of Cyriac's sumptuous manuscripts may have inspired Bosch's imagination. The charting and conquest of this new world made real regions previously only idealised in the imagination of artists and poets.
At the same time, the certainty of the old biblical paradise began to slip from the grasp of thinkers into the realms of mythology. In response, treatment of the Paradise in literature, poetry and art shifted towards a self-consciously fictional Utopian representation, as exemplified by the writings of Thomas More — Attempts to find sources for the work in literature from the period have not been successful.
Art historian Erwin Panofsky wrote in that, "In spite of all the ingenious, erudite and in part extremely useful research devoted to the task of "decoding Jerome Bosch", I cannot help feeling that the real secret of his magnificent nightmares and daydreams has still to be disclosed.
We have bored a few holes through the door of the locked room; but somehow we do not seem to have discovered the key.
Glum remarked on the triptych's similarity of tone with Erasmus's view that theologians "explain to suit themselves the most difficult mysteries Could God have assumed the form of a woman, a devil, an ass, a gourd, a stone? Because only bare details are known of Bosch's life, interpretation of his work can be an extremely difficult area for academics as it is largely reliant on conjecture.
Individual motifs and elements of symbolism may be explained, but so far relating these to each other and to his work as a whole has remained elusive. Charles De Tolnay wrote that. The oldest writers, Dominicus Lampsonius and Karel van Manderattached themselves to his most evident side, to the subject; their conception of Bosch, inventor of fantastic pieces of devilry and of infernal scenes, which prevails today in the public at large, and prevailed with historians until the last quarter of the 19th century.
Generally, his work is described as a warning against lust, and the central panel as a representation of the transience of worldly pleasure.
Inthe art historian Ludwig von Baldass wrote that Bosch shows "how sin came into the world through the Creation of Eve, how fleshly lusts spread over the entire earth, promoting all the Deadly Sinsand how this necessarily leads straight to Hell". Proponents of this idea point out that moralists during Bosch's era believed that it was woman's—ultimately Eve's—temptation that drew men into a life of lechery and sin. This would explain why the women in the center panel are very much among the active participants in bringing about the Fall.
At the time, the power of femininity was often rendered by showing a female surrounded by a circle of males. A late 15th-century engraving by Israhel van Meckenem shows a group of men prancing ecstatically around a female figure. The Master of the Banderoles's work the Pool of Youth similarly shows a group of females standing in a space surrounded by admiring figures.
This line of reasoning is consistent with interpretations of Bosch's other major moralising works which hold up the folly of man; the Death and the Miser and the Haywain. Although, according to the art historian Walter Bosing, each of these works is rendered in a manner that it is difficult to believe "Bosch intended to condemn what he painted with such visually enchanting forms and colors".
Bosing concludes that a medieval mindset was naturally suspicious of material beauty, in any form, and that the sumptuousness of Bosch's description may have been intended to convey a false paradise, teeming with transient beauty.
This radical group, active in the area of the Rhine and the Netherlands, strove for a form of spirituality immune from sin even in the flesh, and imbued the concept of lust with a paradisical innocence. Later critics have agreed that, because of their obscure complexity, Bosch's "altarpieces" may well have been commissioned for non-devotional purposes.
The Homines intelligentia cult sought to regain the innocent sexuality enjoyed by Adam and Eve before the Fall. In contrast, those being punished in Hell comprise "musicians, gamblers, desecrators of judgment and punishment".
These are regarded by many scholars as hypothesis only, and built on an unstable foundation and what can only be conjecture. Critics argue that artists during this period painted not for their own pleasure but for commission, while the language and secularization of a post-Renaissance mind-set projected onto Bosch would have been alien to the late- Medieval painter. Writing inE. Gombrich drew on a close reading of Genesis and the Gospel According to Saint Matthew to suggest that the central panel is, according to Linfert, "the state of mankind on the eve of the Floodwhen men still pursued pleasure with no thought of the morrow, their only sin the unawareness of sin.
Because Bosch was such a unique and visionary artist, his influence has not spread as widely as that of other major painters of his era. However, there have been instances of later artists incorporating elements of The Garden of Earthly Delights into their own work. Pieter Bruegel the Elder c. While the Italian court painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo c. These strange portraits rely on and echo a motif that was in part inspired by Bosch's willingness to break from strict and faithful representations of nature.
David Teniers the Younger c. During the early 20th century, Bosch's work enjoyed a popular resurrection. The early surrealists ' fascination with dreamscapesthe autonomy of the imagination, and a free-flowing connection to the unconscious brought about a renewed interest in his work.
Both knew his paintings firsthand, having seen The Garden of Earthly Delights in the Museo del Pradoand both regarded him as an art-historical mentor. However, the Surrealist movement soon rediscovered Bosch and Bruegel, who quickly became popular among the Surrealist painters.
