One Page Poetry Circle Archive

 

July, 2010.

The One Page Poetry Circle has a new location!

Starting September 14, 2010, the One Page Poetry Circle will meet at the St. Agnes Branch Library, 444 Amsterdam Avenue (near 81st Street) from 5:30 - 6:30 p.m. We will meet the second Tuesday of each month through December.

A flyer is attached. (pdf - opens in new window)

Come and bring a single page of poetry by a known poet-with copies for others, if you can. The theme for September 14 is Poetry and the Movies.

We are thinking about the ways in which movies and poetry come together. Some movies get their titles from a line of poetry, like No Country for Old Men, which stems from W. B. Yeats' Sailing to Byzantium. But there are other ways movies use poems as well. In the film, The Sweet Hereafter, the reading of Robert Browning's The Pied Piper reveals a connection between children and money that complements the events of the movie. When the film Four Weddings and a Funeral came out, the recitation by a character in the film of W.H. Auden's Funeral Blues made Auden a bestseller!

You can also find a poem about a movie by going to poemhunter.com or poets.org and typing in "movie" or "film." You don't have to know anything about poetry to enjoy the evening. We are all amateurs, but we have fun learning from each other.

We would love for you to join us! Bring a friend-all are welcome!
