A Mice, A Brick, A Lovely Night: An Exploration of Poetry and Comics
Professor Stephen Burt and Monica Youn
Monica Youn's recent collection Ignatz, a finalist for the National Book Award, takes figures and structures from the great Modernist comic stripKrazy Kat. Youn and Burt intersperse readings from Ignatz with a discussion of Krazy Kat and other comics, the relations between words and images, and the utility of aposiopesis.
