A filmed presentation on the meaning, mechanics and significance of poetry. Lines appear on screen as they are read and color coated to show relationships like rhyme.
Endorsed by Maine Public Broadcasting which wrote, in part: "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 educational and entertaining."


Technology provides new ways to enjoy poetry. Film makes it possible for poetry to have a visual face. "The Force of Poetry" is a poetry reading and talk on the meaning, mechanics and significance of poetry. In an hour long program, poet Timothy Victor Richardson whose work impressed Nobel Laureate Joseph Brodsky, starting in 1986, reads from his collection, "Afflicted Love". The film goes far beyond a poetry reading. It uses the visual medium of television to put poetry on the screen, line by line, as it is being read. Further, as Richardson reads, lines appear on the screen allowing the viewer to watch the poem grow and the shape of its stanzas emerge and when the poet explains the complexities of formal forms, lines are highlighted to explain rhythm and rhyme.

Asked why poetry is so important, Richardson quotes Joseph Brodsky: "...verse writing is an extraordinary accelerator of consciousness, of thinking, of comprehending the universe." Then, he relates a story of how one of Brodsky's poems gave a prisoner in the Gulag the strength to survive. "We shouldn't take our freedoms for granted or confuse art with entertainment. Great art can possess the moral force to save lives. In the aggregate, art can keep the mental life of a culture sane and alive," says Richardson.

This DVD from Timothy Richardson presents poetry instruction in a conversational style that is easy to understand.. He covers the overall importance of art and poetry and the affect art has on every generation. Tim gives examples of the triggers that give him inspiration for his poetry. He discusses rhyme and meter using examples from his collection of poems in “Afflicted Love”. He taps out the meter on a drum pad so you immediately know what he’s talking about. Each poetic style is accompanied with visualizations from some of his work with highlighted text of the key words. Tim explains the different pentameters and talks about style used by some of the great poets of the past.

The poetry Tim selected for this DVD is emotional and a great selection from his work. His poignant description of a struggling dog in “A Country Dog” touches your heart. “On November 22nd”, reflects on the assassination of John F. Kennedy. “Wrongful Life” tells of Johnny Cochran’s frustration with the legal system, and “Pearl Harbor” focuses on the men trapped beneath the sea in the Arizona after the bombing, just to name a few.

This program is wonderfully produced, filmed, and edited by Toni Seger who had the foresight to include the visual references of Tim’s work.

This would be an excellent DVD for a literature class or a poetry club meeting.
