A Gorgeous Action: A Nervous Response

Poem by Alec Mann

Some experimental poetry. Interpret it how you will.



Erm... Well, I've just been writing some stuff and I wanted to know what people thought of it.

Bear in mind that most of this stuff is not nice, but everything has some kind of meaning to it. I'm very anti-government in most circumstances, and I tend to adopt a slightly Marxist view with regards to literary criticism.

I'm studying literature for AS, so any criticism for me would be greatly appreciated. I'm a great admirer of people like Bill Hicks, (trying to save the world), and of the stylised film directors like Tim Burton and Dario Argento.

My writing is largely influenced by Clive Barker, and gothic writers like Bram Stoker, but that will probably only become apparent when I post some of my experimental novel extracts. For the moment I'm concentrating on poetry.

By the way, I may enjoy some vampire fiction, but I have a passionate hatred of The Famous One That Includes The Guy Who Everybody Fancies. You know who I mean. It's lowering the intellectual quality of our species.
