Soon, soon . . .
Today is March 15, and that means there’s only half a month to go until the beginning of National/Global Poetry Writing Month!
We’ll be back on March 25 (which marks the one-week-to-go point) with a few more things to whet your interest, but in the meantime, for those of you who intend to post your April efforts to a blog or other webspace, we have a few “buttons” or “badges” below that you are welcome to use! And of course, please go ahead and submit the link to your site for inclusion on our list of participants’ sites, using the “Submit Your Site” form at the top of the page!
As mentioned in our last post, we’ll be featuring poetry-related video resources throughout the month of April, including videos of poets reading their poems, animated film versions of poems, TED-style talks about poetry, etc. But while we’re counting down to April, we’ll be giving you occasional bouts of poetry and poetry-related content, as taken from popular films and television!
Today, why not check out this scene from the movie Four Weddings and a Funeral, a romantic comedy starring, alongside Hugh Grant and Andie MacDowell , a recitation of W.H. Auden’s “Funeral Blues.”
