Isaac Falconer is a pseudonym [an ARTIST NAME created by Dr. Saku Gunasegaram] in the spirit of George Eliot (Mary Ann / Marian / Evans) and Isak Dinesen (Karen Christentze von Blixen-Finecke) merely TWO of a myriad giants on whose (proverbial) shoulders I stand. Isaac: Hebrew, meaning laughter ~ deeply ironic when taken in the context of current and historic Arab-Israeli conflict in the Middle East.Falconer: taken from the William Butler Yeats poem, "The Second Coming" (1921): "Turning and turning in the widening gyre, the falcon cannot hear the falconer . . ." ~ an Irish poet's deep lament for the fragmented human relationships which mar post-modern life.
