The Spider by Gabor Barabas

Poet: | Nationality: | Filmmaker:

I’m not sure why I never posted this one before. The poem is based on the work of the late sculptor Louise Bourgeois. Juan Delcan, the animator, is an artist in his own right; his animation for Billy Collins’ poem “The Dead” is one of the most popular animated poems on the web. The poet, Gabor Barabas, doesn’t seem to have a website, but is a retired pediatrician with a flourishing second career in theatre and poetry.
