Mariners don't think about the deeps too much. The canvas of my reverie: maritime, With promontory, cave, and little antique Town that's emptied for a sacrifice. A boat tacks around the cove and disappears Into my mind's eye, where the scene plays over And over: a small town beside an immense sea, A white sail tacks around the promontory. Mariners don't think too much about the deeps, Poets were once thought premonitory.

It's not in any cookbook, but here now is the recipe for making an absolutely miserable day on the golf course. Just add water. As rain pounded La Costa, they stopped playing only long enough to sponge the water off the greens and check to see if the ark was double-parked. Even though it was warm and cozy in the clubhouse, none of the players were sent off the course to wait there while Thursday's storms struck in wave after wave.

Two weeks ago, Tom Clark knew almost nothing of the people who sleep among the bushes and meandering dirt trails near the edge of the Ventura River. He had only heard a few stories from his uncle, James Clark, a homeless alcoholic who had lived there himself, in Ventura's Hobo Jungle, for more than two decades. But in the past two weeks Tom Clark has made it his business to find out everything he can about the homeless men and women who were his uncle's companions.

Thinking about Pound on Shattuck Avenue is like genuflecting in hiking boots a classic case of being overequipped. If we live in a sea of insincerity, and they say, how many additional drops does it take to make a wave? Forlorn as driftwood, The ABC of Reading sits untouched, swamped by enough Chez Panisse to give Neptune a heartburn. At the brink of the frankly autobiographical one hesitates. Can one live with grace in such a place? Is escape possible?

February 22, 1987 | Stewart M. Lindh, A poet, Lindh received his Ph.D in Paris, where he studied with Roland Barthes
In 1944, Louis-Ferdinand Celine, French novelist, doctor, anti-Semite, Fascist collaborator and world traveler, arrived in the waiting room of hell. Gathered to meet him at the train station in Sigmaringen, Germany, were members of the Vichy government in exile. Ghosts vanishing at first light, the underlings of Petain and Laval were fading into the landscape of horror they had helped to create. Celine went to Germany as doctor to the dead.

Spectacularly dismal or dishonest lives often make for great reading, as witness this biography of minor-league poet and beatnik guru Charles Olson (1910-70).

Rock Hudson's former lover filed a $23-million libel suit Wednesday, claiming that he is falsely portrayed in a new book on the late actor as "a criminal, a thief, an unclean person, a blackmailer, a psychotic, an extortionist, a forger, a perjurer, a liar, a whore, an arsonist and a squatter." The suit was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court by Marc Christian, who last year won $5.

In 1964, Tom Clark met Rock Hudson at a bridge game at the home of a mutual friend. Clark, who at the time was a publicist at MGM, had met and worked with a number of top stars and so he was not daunted by this first encounter with Hudson. According to Hudson's own posthumous autobiography ("Rock Hudson: His Story," actually written by Sara Davidson although Hudson initiated the project in 1985 when he was near death), the two men grew close and eventually became lovers.

For a man who hasn't owned a car in 17 years, doesn't watch television and still wears bell-bottom pants, Ramsey Clark has always managed to keep up with the times. "I guess you could say I've been involved in a couple of things that made news," says the former U.S. attorney general in a slow, Southern drawl. "Sure, there have been some stories."
