watching poetry

January 11, 2019

If you’re ready for a little poetic video viewing, have a look at Aeon. The site offers a wide array of long- and short-form essays and digital musings as well as a variety of materials on poetry, including, “The brevity and beauty of Yeats’s verses reveal poetry’s enduring significance” and “‘Now I will do nothing but listen’ – Walt Whitman on how sound shapes the self.” (And in case there’s not enough of the stuff right outside your window, have a look at “A meditative cinepoem from 1929 captures the reflective, ethereal wonders of water.”) Enjoy.
