[Matthew Weiner '87]By Caroline MacNeille ’16

AMC recently announced that the highly anticipated conclusion of Mad Men will air in April 2015. In this IndieWire article, creator Matthew Weiner ’87 and the cast answer questions about the “surprising” series ending, ridiculous audience theories and Jon Hamm’s future detailing cars.

Weiner has always been protective (read: secretive) of his work, but he did admit to sharing possible scenarios with actors before putting them into the script. Though it was not exercised for the final episode, Weiner said he often went to his cast with ideas for scenes in order to try them out live and in person.

Weiner’s secrecy has led fans to wildly speculate about every aspect of his show, a long-running practice that may have peaked during the first half of the final season. Many rumors were flying around, and Weiner — who pays attention to fan reaction — said a few took him completely off guard.

One fan came up to Weiner during the early seasons and said, “I know Don Draper’s secret. It’s that he’s Jewish.” Weiner, while retelling the story, got a perplexed look on his face and said, “Did I ever put anything in there that said he wasn’t? Because he’s not. I mean I know that.”

There are fantastic academic workshops being offered on Wesleyan’s campus next Thursday and Friday. The first is for particular students while the second is open to everyone.

Workshop for Under-represented Minorities, Veterans, and First-generation College Students

Thursday, January 29, 2015       Time:   7:00-8:15 PM

Location:       41 Wyllys, Olson Commons (CRC lobby space)

Audience:      Under Represented Minorities, Veterans, and First-Gen college students

Please RSVP for workshop 3 (cfcd@wesleyan.edu)

 

Workshop for all undergraduate students

Friday, January 30, 2015          Time:   9:00-11:00 AM

Location:       Exley Science Center, Woodhead Lounge

Audience:      All Undergraduate Students

Title:               Metacognition:  The Key to Acing Courses!

Description:  All students who are admitted to college have the ability to ace their courses.  However, most students did not acquire effective learning strategies in high school, and resort to memorizing information just before tests. This strategy usually yields poor results, with students earning grades much lower than their ability.  This interactive workshop will introduce students to cognitive science based learning strategies that help all students experience meaningful, transferable learning, resulting in A’s in their courses!

Please RSVP for breakfast (served at 8:30) and workshop 4 (cfcd@wesleyan.edu)

Today’s Throwback Thursday poem is Joseph Ceravolo’s “Night Wanderer” from Collected Poems.

In his lifetime, Ceravolo published six books. The publication of Collected Poems made these six books available again, and also includes a substantial amount of work that has never been in print. Collected Poems offers the first full portrait of Ceravolo’s aesthetic trajectory, bringing to light his highly original voice that often operated at a remove from his contemporaries.

Ceravolo’s poem, “Hidden Bird,” also found in Collected Poems, was selected for the anthology The Best American Poetry, 2014. The paperback edition of Collected Poems is due out in April, 2015.

 

 Ceravolo Blog Post

Night Wander

Eyes without light,

night without eyes,

scum of the earth, primordial skin.

A black, a beautiful universe.

Skin and eyes and fever

travels within itself

into the other.

Do not be afraid.

 

Recline with your hopes

on this resplendent day.

Birds cry out to the morning,

the ground calls me brother.

I crawl to you

wiped out,

stains on the heart.

O you who from our eyes is hid

with one odor

one note

and no explosion at all.

 

JOSEPH CERAVOLO (1934–1988) was a poet and civil engineer who was born in Astoria, Queens, and lived in New Jersey. He was the author of six books of poetry and won the first Frank O’Hara Award.

Ceravolo was not the only Wesleyan poet to be honored for a stand-out poem. Rae Armantrout’s “Control,” from Just Sayingwas also included in The Best American Poetry, 2014
