All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace Analysis

I like to think (and

the sooner the better!)

of a cybernetic meadow

where mammels and computers

live together in mutually

programming harmony

like pure water

touching clear sky.



I like to think

(right now, please!)

of a cybernetic forest

filled with pines and electronics

where deer stroll peacefully

past computers

as if they were flowers

with spinning blossoms.



I like to think

(it has to be!)

of a cybernetic ecology

where we are free of our labors

and joined back to nature,

returned to our mammal

brothers and sisters,

and all watched over

by machines of loving grace.

When Richard said that he wants computers and animals to live together, he wanted the animals to learn how to play the Xbox 360 so he could add them all to his friends list on Xbox live. That way, he can always find friends for multi-player games.

The main message of the poem is negative. The way technology is referred to sounds almost reverent in a way, as if the narrator is in awe, while the words in parentheses grow ever more desperate.

Richard Brautigan (1935-1984) was an American poet and novelist, primarily associated with the counterculture in San Francisco in the 1960s. His style was absurdist, satirical, and surreal. Among the novels he wrote are Trout Fishing In America, The Abortion, and Dreaming Of Babylon. His poetry was collected in such volumes as Rommel Drives On Deep Into Egypt, The Pill Versus The Springhill Mine Disaster, and All Watched Over By Machines Of Loving Grace. The title poem of that collection, published in 1967 is the one on your left; in envisions a world where nature and technology have merged, creating a “cybernetic ecology.” Back then, when he wrote it, the poem must have read as a fantasy. Now, Brautigan looks prophetic

even if machines dont take over, we\'ll always be bothered with the amount of power they have over us

what he is meaning is that he doesn\'t want machines because they are starting to take us over it may not seem that way in the poem but it is i looked it up on his site.

I think he wants to think that technology will soon take over labor we have to do. Like calculating... usually we would have to write it out on paper but now that we have technology (calculators) we don't need to use paper and pencil to solve a problem. But technology will NEVER replace God!

.: :.

Sweet Richard dreams of a paradise free of labor (at least the mind & soul numbing labor most humans must endure to earn three squares & a roof over the head) so that like the beasts of the forest we wake & sleep & eat & procreate & socialize without the rancor of want our current state entails: that is the promise of machines of loving grace.

what Richard meant is to equalize between technology and nature because one day technology will take over us .

Machines can eventually take the place of man, or take the place of god.
