Also, our dear Mark Lamoureux is looking for ekphrastic poetry from the 20th and 21st centuries for an anthology he’s putting together. Got some recommendations? Want to make sure your favorite doesn’t get left out? Comment (he’ll read it).
There are a couple of poems in OFC that could be considered ekphrastic: 42(b), 48(b) and 72 are each descriptions of particular sculptures.
Ekphrasis could go in the list of things I don’t like from yesterday. But this is only because often when I try explaining plasticity to people they’re like, “oh! Ekphrasis.” Plasticity is not ekphrasis, although plastic poems can use ekphrasis as a device, just as they can use nodes, rhythm, rhyme, splits, etc.
