A poet for more than 25 years, Timothy Richardson was originally trained as an educator and psychologist, the background from which his novel, "Ceremony of Innocence", was derived. The strongly metrical language of this novel is an indicator of the author's major focus: poetry.

Background Information

Timothy Richardson's work has impressed some of the finest poets of the 20th century including former U.S. Poet Laureate, Richard Wilbur, Pulitzer Prize winners James Merrill and Anthony Hecht, Guggenheim fellow and MacArthur recipient, Rosanna Warren and Nobel Laureate, Joseph Brodsky among others.

Some of Richardson's poems have been published by "The Partisan Review" and other publications, but most of the poetry in his intensely visual collection, "Afflicted Love" have led to films: eight complete and two in progress. His unique seminar centering on his sonnet cycle, "Laurels", (a Crown of Sonnets based on Michelangelo's fresco, "The Last Judgment") inspired a unique film about the work which will soon be available on the Internet.

The film, also called "Laurels", merges Renaissance art with digital technology. It uses film as a visual metaphor for poetry and the art that inspired it. Laurels takes viewers on a multi-media journey into two works of art and, in the process, breaks down barriers to their enjoyment and appreciation. In its endorsement, Maine Public Broadcasting said the film; "enlightens and expands the horizons of our viewers".

"The Force of Poetry" captures a Richardson poetry reading and presentation on the meaning, mechanics and significance of poetry. Digital technology is employed to convey traditional and complex poetic forms as they are explained. In its endorsement, Maine Public Broadcasting said; "The effect is to inject life and heartbeat into what is often thought of as an inert, hard-to-read art form, and the result is both educational and entertaining. "The Force of Poetry is available at

A taped presentation about Richardson's epic poem on the inner life of Abraham Lincoln , "Mandala", has been shown on cable channels. Short films of single poems are available on internet sites with a CD of poetry readings by the actor Jeff Flint in progress.

Additional Information

"Morning Song" by Timothy Victor Richardson, now available on spoken word CD with an extraordinary interpretation by Jeff Flint. Do you remember your first camp experience? Away from family and, quite suddenly, totally involved with strangers in a very intimate fashion; sleeping, eating, cleaning, engaging in sports and other activities, competing with the noise and motion of a cabin filled with kids and counselors who do things you could never imagine... "Morning Song" by Timothy Victor Richardson explores the funny and frightening initiation rites of childhood through the eyes of a six year old boy's first camp experience. Listen to a preview at:
