I shot some footage in Ceredigion, West Wales, earlier this week — and all the time, I was hearing in my mind R S Thomas’s poem “Welsh Landscape.”
…so here it is, with the voice of the poet himself.
Part 1 of a two-part homage to Kenneth Patchen (Part 2 is here) by Dekklun Cuinn (I think. Or at least uploaded by him). The reading is by the poet himself, recorded for Folkways Records. The text of the poem may be read here.
Poem by Anne Carson, the fifth of six excerpts on YouTube from her lecture on pronouns in the form of 15 sonnets called Possessive Used as Drink (Me). See “Recipe” for more information on the series and the production.
Another fine Comma Film video of a poem by Gaia Holmes, this time by Lisa Risbec, with narration by Jo Bryan. There’s a kind of Russian doll effect at work here: a film within a film, and a book within that, and animation enclosed by live action, and letters in envelopes. Archeaology indeed.
