Some Days -- Billy Collins Animated Poetry
Is poetry on YouTube a good thing?
On the one hand, this animated short is very stylized and well done--there are at least six animated Billy Collins poems posted by the same user on YouTube. And anything medium that makes poetry more accessible to the masses is a good thing. But is poetry meant to be animated? Maybe I'm old fashioned, but I like being in a room somewhere letting the words and images float to me, not having a third-party interpretation explaining the poem to me. .
I'm sure the answer lies somewhere in the middle. So what do you think about animated poetry?
