The only site (?) on the internet dedicated to the writing of Henry William Brownejohns, Alexander Swartwout, Eliza Anne Bonney, and Jonathan Ephrain Underhill
America's greatest living (?) and most obscure writers!
|Welcome to Brownejohns.org, which I started to make up for the lack of any real information on the internet about the writer Henry William Brownejohns and his collaborators (alter egos? true identities? friends?). In 2001 they began writing "Three Weeks" here in New York, and have since put out a couple of books and lots of articles - but they don't do any publicity and no one really seems to know who or where they are (except, I assume, they are in New York). Now fans of these amazing obscure writers have a place to find out more, to read the writing, and to discuss with each other the work of these great authors. And Brownejohns and company can be discovered by some new readers, too! Thanks for visiting!|
WHO are these people, you might ask?
WHAT was "Three Weeks," and what else have they done?
WHEN did all this happen?
WHERE are they now?
WHY should anyone care?
"We have found that it is currently unfashionable to have an opinion, or to be too well informed. It is even a point of pride to discuss - over sugary liquor and micro-brewed lager - the impressive breadth of one's ignorance. Among today's young, handsome, most promising specimens, there is no shame in not knowing, for example, the boiling point of water at sea level, the location of Wisconsin or the name of its capital, or the name of one's own congressional representative, as long as this ignorance is admitted with a smirk, a flourish, and a fragment of sarcastic wit. This elaborate conceit to intellectual midgetry is loosely known as post-modernism, to perpetrators in the graduate school set, and it is, astonishingly, not only socially acceptable, but even admired.
(NOTE: This site is not officially connected with "Three Weeks," Henry William Brownejohns, or anybody else. I am a guy who loves good writing and who wants to share my discovery with others. See my About this site page for more info. Or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org)
