Thirteen ways of looking at a blackbird - complete!


It was evening all afternoon.
It was snowing
And it was going to snow."

I have now finished recreating all thirteen sections of Wallace Stevens' famous poem "Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird" as short Flash animations; and I've also built a crab-apple-tree interface for the whole thing.

For readers who have been following this project since February, when it started, the new sections are numbers 3 ("Autumn winds"), 5 ("Inflections and innuendos"), 8 ("Noble accents") and 13 ("It was evening all afternoon").

From a work in progress: three more short animations, based on sections of Wallace Stevens' famous poem "Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird", are now online. The first three were completed in February, the second batch in April, and there should be more to come a bit later in the year.

"Every animation on this CD is worth seeing for its own sake; but when they are viewed in conjunction with the original Tales, and the background information about Mazuranic herself, then a much more rich and complex picture emerges..."
