So, today begins the posting of another version of the John Keats poem La Belle Dame Sans Merci. After I had done the initial version, I was reading through and old poetry book of my father and aunt’s which featured the poem, and along the margins I saw notes interpreting the poem in a different way than I had. So, I thought it would provide the perfect opportunity to draw another version in contrast and relation to the first.
I particularly like how having two versions shows the ambiguity of words and the power that images can have towards an overall expression of meaning. I think making two versions of the same verbal work provides a nice creative experiment too.
Aside: My wrist pains continue to pester, so blog posts will continue only sporadically. 🙁
