Grecian Paradox by littleblueraccoon Grecian Paradox by littleblueraccoon
"Lightheaded, I have been cured of my illusion.
I'm just numb from fear, but
I had avoided Pandora's box
and I could see the light.
That curious King of Hell surprised Persephone,
but he was no Beast."

Yep, it's official: I love found poetry. They're just so much fun to find! I think this one turned out better than my previous one. At least my design is a little more interesting here. This particular one was found in the same book, Beauty, by Robin McKinley. The idea of found poetry is not my own. I got my idea from other deviants. 

If you liked this, let me know! I appreciate any feedback you can offer me. 

EDIT: Front page? You guys got me to the FRONT PAGE ASDFGHJKLASDFGJKL I LOVE YOU ALL YOU ARE WONDERFUL AND I FEEL SO LOVED!

Aw, thank you so much! That's great to hear! :la:

If you decide to do that, may I recommend looking in secondhand stores? Sometimes you can find interesting books with lots of good words in places like that. Good luck to you! (:

Love the book, love the poem, love the doodle.

In a way, you can't destroy a book (unless it's an original) - because massive printings save the words elsewhere. And some poetry just begs to be set free.

You know what, I've never heard of found poetry. Can you explain this a little more?
Reply
:iconlittleblueraccoon:
littleblueraccoon Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2013  Student Writer
Found poetry is sometimes called "blackout" poetry because it involves selecting certain words and phrases from an already-written piece of text. The rest of the text is ignored, or blacked out. It can sometimes be hard to say what you mean because your word choice is limited by what's printed on the page. 

It's very fun to write a found poem. I'd definitely recommend it. :heart:

Hope that helped you!

Found poetry is a really fun and, sometimes, snappier type of poetry. A simple google can tell you all about it, to be honest. Here's a convenient link all about it, though bit.ly/17kDhQN

Oh wow. But is it technically plagiarism?
Reply
:iconwing-mate:
wing-mate Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
No. Plagarism is taking someone's thoughts, statements, ideas, concepts, etc. and claiming them as your own. Found poetry is simply looking at someone else's work and extracting what words are already there to create something entirely new of your own.

I like doing stuff a little similar to this on newspapers on the bus. Sometimes I leave them on the seat when I leave and wonder if anyone would read it after.

 

Great work ^^
