    http://www.nightwish.com/en/ ... \m/ Nemo is the tenth single by Finnish symphonic metal band Nightwish, the first from the album Once. The song can be heard in the ending credits of the 2005 film, The Cave and a special version of the music video was released that contained scenes from the movie. Nemo is Latin for "nobody", and it is also the name of the mysterious captain in Jules Verne's Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. Also, nemo corresponds to the famous answer given by the Greek hero Odysseus to the Cyclops Polyphemus. In the Odyssey, when Polyphemus asks for his name, Odysseus tells him "Ουτις" a name translated as "No-man" or "Nobody" which has been used allusively by later authors, such as Jules Verne. The line in the chorus "'Nemo' my name forever more" further suggests this meaning to be the intended one. Other thematic elements from the Odyssey appears in other Nightwish songs such as "The Siren"

    • Ezra Pound reads Canto 1

      Ezra Pound’s reading of Canto I is sonorous; perhaps he copied the reading style of his former boss, W. B. Yeats. The oft trilled words seem stark and clear. Pound wanted his Cantos to be epic like Homer, and Canto I is a retelling of parts of the Odyssey, dark stuff, flight, and hell and spiteful Neptune. Its language is often obscure, arcane, made up. One wonders if the future will want to spend the time to figure it out and conjure it up. T.S. Eliot’s The Waste Land is luckier in this regard because it can be entertaining without understanding its underlying references. In this reading, Pound edits out the line: “To the Kimmerian lands, and the people cities,” which is perhaps the most uninteresting line in the Canto, and when taken out, these lines Came we then to the bounds of deepest water, To the Kimmerian lands, and peopled cities Covered with close-webbed mist, unpierced ever With glitter of sun-rays become these Came we then to the bounds of deepest water, Covered with close-webbed mist, unpierced ever With glitter of sun-rays It isn’t the land now covered by the mist, but the water. Odysseus is still on the water and not home yet. Pound also changes “Men many, mauled with bronze lance heads” to “Many men mauled with bronze lance heads,” which makes it more natural and modern. Some definitions ell-square pitkin: it sounds Old English, but are words made up by the poet: it’s nonsense that wants to mean (I think): “I dug a little pit, a little hole.” Digging up some dirt perhaps to either bury or cover the dead with the dirt. fosse: ditch, a moat dreory: sounds like dreary but it means “blood dripping” ingle: a hearth, a comforting fire in a room, (vagina?) bever:drink Venerandnam: worthy of reverence, veneration Cypri munimenta sortita est: “The walls of Cyprus are meant for her.” Pound believed that Homer began the epic tradition. Translators of Homer are mentioned in the poem: In officina wecheli: at the printer of Divus, a translator of Homer. There is the mention of Elpenor as well, Odysseus’ youngest companion, a young man who falls down drunk and breaks his neck, unlucky and of no consequence, remembered only in a mention by Homer and then Pound: “A man of no fortune and with a name to come.”

        Odysseus in America is a documentary film based on psychiatrist Dr. Jonathan Shay’s groundbreaking book. The book and the film reveal the parallels in Odysseus’ epic ten-year journey home from Troy— sung by Homer 3,000 years ago — to events in the lives of todays American combat veterans. The ancients, the film argues, understood the psychological impact of combat on all those who fight, survive, and return home.

                The man with the tender heel is called forth to face the strongest man from the opposing army. The Trojan army--specifically the General--is aghast at the masculine beauty of Achilles' ripped and toned torso. The General proposes to Achilles but is denied. Meanwhile, the Trojans are partying with their buttsluts. But Legolas has accidently wooed the King's mistress with his elvish charm. He ends up kidnapping her aboard his brother Hector's ship. Confusion arises about Legolas' true species. Elsewhere, the Trojan King, distraught by his missing buttslut, decides to go to war. Then Odysseus comes in and the film kinda just stops.

                  This short transfers and abstracts the 'Lotus-Eaters-Incident' from Homers Odyssey. The skull you're seeing during the 'Lotus-Trip' was built by Matthias Danberg. Whereas the distorted music during this segment has been originally composed and conducted by Christoph Splittstößer. Enjoy!
