I watched an interview, skimmed his Wiki, and watched a short biography to make sure I got the nuances of the film. I'll rewatch Ginga Tetsudou no Yoru tonight.
I found a perfect quote to describe Spring and Chaos:
"Yet even these poems can never attain to any wide popularity, nor can they ever have much weight with practical intelligences that shun the evanescent world of revery where the real and the unreal meet and blend together in indistinguishable twilight. For this atmosphere is one of indulgent brooding; their warp and woof are of the stuff of dreams woven by a mind that turns from the actual issues of life as a naked body cowers from the wind. The world is seen through a haze of abstraction, glimmeringly, as a landscape looms misty and vague through the falling, fluttering veil of the rain. Indeed it is noteworthy, how many of the poems descriptive of nature..." - cool passage from a review on Arthur Symons
My favorite Russian poem, by the way, is Osip Mandelstam's "The sea-shell".
I think a lot of Japanese anime and rpgs tend to be more Gnostic... Xenogears in particular with one of the central "characters" resembling the demiurge. Shin Megami Tensei 2 and 3 are other examples.
Also, it's pretty awesome you can read Tolstoy, Chekhov, and Dostoevsky in the original Russian! I love their fiction.
Not true. Remember the German psalm in the WMT adaptation of Heidi?
Heidi read that to Peter's grandmother in the anime.
It's a good psalm. Has a strong Zoroastrian feel to it.
Tell me of your pain.
