An Anthology of Film Poems
Ruth Roach Pierson
2014
ePub
Although poetry is one of the oldest art forms and cinema one of the youngest, a symbiosis exists between the two -- an interchange of metaphor, rhythm, point-of-view. No surprise, then, that so many contemporary poets write about film and the magnitude of its effect on modern life. Featuring work...

In the Silence Absence Makes

In the Silence Absence Makes is a poetic mystery, a nightmare, an elegy. A lost girl and the loss of innocence, both of the child and the society she is part of. Poems like the photos on the front pages of today's newspaper.

The persistence of misconceptions about Italian-Canadian food culture raises many questions for us. Are we gluttonous, inebriate and too loud? Do we force-feed guests? Are we in fact food-obsessed?
