Flash: BAM, ala-kazam! May 19. Midtown Scholar Bookstore. C’mon, lift up yr head & shout! Our annual reading featuring passionate imitations of sounds made by, or associated with, their referent.
May 19, it's Onomatopoeia Thursday, hosted by the Almost Uptown Poetry Cartel.
Wha? You know-- whiz, bang! burrrp, kerflooie!
Exciting words that suggest meaning by their sound. Crash! buzz, murmur, clang, warble, ding!. Sounds from dinosaur grunts to whirring star-ship engines, choking on a peach pit anapestically, or gargling “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening”?
Tennyson’s Lotus Eaters and Swinburne’s Garden of Proserpine are noteworthy literary examples of the use of onomatopoeia.
ArGHHhh! Okay, I mean, you could just read a regular poem. We only suggest, we don't bully.
7-9pm. This event is part of Poetry Thursdays, a continuing poetry series, held weekly at the Midtown Scholar. 1302 N. 3rd Street.17102
For more information, (717) 236-1680.
Next week, like wild hussars, Rick Kearns & John Catalano dare to mix music & verse. A volatile combination to be sure.
