The Giant (from Kate Greenstreet)

I was knocked out by this extraordinary little movie. It's a piece of one of the short films from the DVD that'll come with Kate Greenstreet's new book, The Last 4 Things, when it's published in September by Ahsahta Press.

If there's a better poetry clip anywhere, please send me a pointer. (Seriously. I'm interested in this stuff.)

ut it seems to me we could all go to school on this one. Even more astonishing to the technically-challenged among us, she made it herself.

At the moment, I can't even remember how to blog.

The Poet, Burning His Own Work

Carl Spitzweg, "The Poor Poet" (1839)

"The poet writes while huddling under his bedcovers and wearing a tattered coat and nightcap. The writer has been burning some of his own work - most likely volumes I and II since volumes III and IV remain in bundles on the floor. The fire in the room has obviously gone out since the poet rests his hat on the cold stovepipe and no live coals are visible in the stove. Indeed this cold stove is the darkest part of the picture and symbolizes the writer's sorry state of affairs."
