Literalism run amok!

The folks at Weirdo Productions demonstrate what happens when poems are taken too literally, using as an example the Carol Ann Duffy poem “A Child’s Sleep.” I love this, because overly literal videopoems are one of the banes of my existence as curator of Moving Poems.

    It’s actually a nice poem. The video cracks me up. At least it was tongue in cheek. I guess you see a lot of literal videos that are trying to be sincere. :-/
