Poetry Comics: An Animated Anthology
By Dave Morice 117 pp.
Dave Morice’s Poetry Comics offers literary mavens and students alike a look at the canon in a new and hilarious light. This anthology brings together such classics as Shakespeare’s sonnets, Walt Whitman’s “Leaves of Grass,” and Emily Dickinson’s “Poem 303” with renditions of such modern masterpieces as John Ashbery’s “Some Trees,” T. S. Eliot’s “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock,” Allen Ginsberg’s “Howl,” and Marianne Moore’s “Poetry.”
In addition to Morice’s kaleidoscope of cartoons, the book features a brief history of poetry comics as well as a step-by-step guide to making poetry comics at home or in the classroom.
