Filmed in an intimate domestic setting, traffic noises and birdsong drifting through open windows, Patton sits comfortably in a chair before the camera, reading from typescript pages, a pen poised in one hand. She performs in a fluid sprechtstimme, easing in and out of accents and personas, casually adding various musical accompaniments from time to time: she forces the knob on a toddler's toy music box, galloping through the lullabye at a hectic gait, then backs off, plinking it forward in little tonal constellations; she reaches down, offscreen, to plunk a guitar note or stroke the strings behind the nut, producing glassy little accents; her foot settles into a restless and insistent rhythm that resonates through the room. Papers flutter as pages turn, her hands trace and stretch notes through the air. She stares you down, then returns to the poem. Here's a fascinating recording from the late Ted Greenwald that we added to the site in January 2015.

Centre Régional d'Art Contemporain à Sète - Centre régional d'Art Contemporain du Languedoc-Roussillon-Midi-Pyrénées Motionpoems | Moving poems. Moving. Musée d'Art Contemporain [mac] | Ville de Marseille Présentation Forte de presque huit cents œuvres, la collection du [MAC] s'appuie sur celle du musée Cantini qui fut scindée en deux lors de la création du [MAC] en 1994. Les Nouveaux Réalistes, qui s'étaient affirmés par leur déclaration commune le 27 octobre 1960, décidant de travailler avec les matériaux nouveaux que la modernité proposait ( affiches, objets de la société de consommation, nouvelles matières : plastiques, néons...) furent choisis pour la rupture que leurs propositions apportaient. Sur cette rupture s'élabora la césure dans les collections marseillaises donnant naissance à celle du [MAC]. La collection du [MAC] rend compte ainsi de l'essentiel de la production de la seconde moitié du XXème siècle et du début du XXIème. Dans le jardin attenant au musée plusieurs œuvres de Jean-Michel Alberola, Julien Blaine, César, Erik Dietman et Fabrice Gygi complètent la présentation. Les musées de Marseille sont porteurs du label "Famille Plus". ERWIN WURM 17 mai – 15 septembre 2019

MAPS In stock late June for fall 2014 adoption. The Modern American Poetry Site is a comprehensive learning environment and scholarly forum for the study of modern and contemporary American poetry. Started as a multimedia companion to the Anthology of Modern American Poetry (Oxford University Press, 2000), MAPS has grown over the past decade to more than 30,000 pages of biographies, critical essays, syllabi and images relating to 161 poets. Criticism can be viewed through the classic list of poets and through the new poet search page, where poets can be searched alphabetically, chronologically by birth date, by race/ethnicity, and by group/school of poetry. MAPS welcomes submissions of original essays and teaching materials related to MAPS poets and the Anthology of Modern American Poetry.

MAGASIN The name « MAGASIN » is linked to the history of the building in which it is located. The National Contemporary Art Centre is housed in a 3000 m2 industrial hall built in 1900 by the Gustave Eiffel workshops for the Paris World Fair. Bought by Bouchayer-Viallet Ltd from Grenoble, working in the area of hydroelectric equipment, the iron structure was dismantled, transported and reassembled. The Architecture The art centre’s architectural plan was designed by the architect Patrick Bouchain. - Poetry, Poems, Bios & More Fresh Graves: An Essay On Horror Poetry Fresh Graves [Originally published in the Horror Writer's Association Newsletter, February, 2002, along with poem "Broken, Entered"] As a poetry editor, I receive a lot of horror poetry, and I'm sad to say that most of it doesn't even get a second read. Been there. Every so often I get poems that do it right, or at least approach the subject of horror poetry from the proper direction. So how do you do it right? Writing horror poetry should be something of an ordeal, not undertaken lightly. The power of poetry -- any poetry -- is in the particulars. What frightened you as a child? Don't be afraid to forsake logic in the study of fear. Dig deep. And when you write those strange, painful, personal poems -- send them to me.
