There once was a girl named Lenore
And a bird and a bust and a door
And a guy with depression
And a whole lot of questions
And the bird always says "Nevermore."

Not very good poetry, but far better than one usually gets in a proposed bill.

Near a Raven

Those that appreciate such things as La disparition (i.e., constrained literature) will like this.

via BoingBoing: Holy Tango of Literature

An anthology (or, rather, "holy tango") of poetry and play scenes whose unifying theme is that each (original) work is inspired by, and written in the style of, an existing writer. Thus we have "Hairball King" (Kahlil Gibran), "My Valentine Isn't Clad" (Edna St. Vincent Millay), "Ah, My Yak Roam" (Omar Khayyam), "Hen Gonads" (Ogden Nash) and "Is A Sperm Like A Whale?" (William Shakespeare).

Very funny. While I'm not familiar with the work of several of the artists, I think that he does a good job of copying the styles, and the works themselves are generally also amusing.

(If any Portland Reading Night-affiliated folks are reading this: I call dibs.)

(The author has also recorded a few songs with similar inspiration. Haven't read/listened to those yet.)

via [livejournal.com profile] rosefox: I had not thought Death Eaters had undone so many.

I haven't read The Hollow Men (and I haven't finished this), but I think now I'll have to.

Academic geeks may appreciate the fact that the author actually included line numbers in proper style. :)
