I came across these decidedly bizarre “poetry animations” on the YouTube. They’re like a combination of PennSound and “The Country Bears” exhibit from Disneyland. I can’t stop looking at them, but I know they’ll give me nightmares.
Animated Emily Dickinson
Animated Edgar Allen Poe. Still more lifelike a reader than any present day “post-Poe” wannabe I’ve heard.
Animated Alexander Pope reminds me of a Chucky doll
Evil Animated Santa Claus sings an Irish folk song
Animated Hunter S. Thompson. Weird, it’s almost like he’s on acid.
Animated John Keats looks sick, maybe. Still sexy, though.
Animated Walt Whitman literally has the Adirondacks for eyebrows. He is America, after all.
There’s a lot more of these things. A. Lot. More. Here’s the account page of the crazy S.O.B. who’s responsible. Enjoy.
