Living Poetry 2: Yes, With Lemon: Weiss' Poem - "Fractions"

Living Poetry 2: Yes, With Lemon: Weiss'

Chris Award -Columbus IFB Festival
The sequel to Living Poetry 1, this classic, award-winning program offers another approach to understanding the creative writing process, this time through the deciphering of a "finished" poem. The film dramatizes and documents an analysis by Princeton University students and their professor, a 237-line autobiographical poem, titled Fractions, which appeared in The American Poetry Review, and is read on and off screen by the late renowned poet Theodore Weiss, and his wife, Renée. Enlarged and enriched, the canvas plumbs the tragic fires of Weiss' childhood in rural Pennsylvania, and finds parallels in the burning of the books in the 1930's and the Holocaust. Anti-Semitism in small-town life is contrasted to man's imperfections, while examining conflagrations and issues of our time. Produced by Edwards Films, Inc. 00/08DE JSCA 30 min.
