Exquisite Corpse

Exquisite Corpse (Cadavre Exquis) is a poetry form and art developed in the 1920s among Surrealists. It is used as a visual but primarily written form. The concept was thought to have originally developed from a parlor game called Consequences, or formed by a similar means.

Call For Action

Drawing inspiration from the film “Soldiers without Swords”, “Exercises in the Restoration in History”  our readings and discussion, create a poem surrounding the idea of “A Call For Action” (ie..freedom fighters.). So how this works is each student will contribute (post) just one line after reading the previous line. The poem will build as each person add their line.Whomever is the first to post starts off the poem. There are roughly about 44 of you combining both sections  so this will be a relatively lengthy poem.

*****Please post your line directly to this post by clicking on comment and adding your line. This way the poem will be easier to read in class. We will record the poem next class and I will post the final piece in the next couple/few weeks.

Please don’t wait until the last minute to post your line, doing so will make this short assignment tough. Please go ahead and post so you classmates can build from your idea. Your post by Saturday March 5, 2016 @7:00pm
