Ekphrasis –

“the poet speaks of art”

The visual description of art is called ekphrasis; it was created by the ancient Greeks.  The goal of this literary form is to make the reader envision the subject described as if it were physically present.  In many cases, however, the subject never actually existed, making the ekphrastic description a demonstration of both the creative imagination and the skill of the writer.

According to Brueghel

when Icarus fell

it was spring

a farmer was ploughing his field

the whole pageantry of the year was awake

tingling near the edge of the sea

concerned with itself sweating in the sun

that melted the wings' wax. Insignificantly off the coast, there was a splash

quite unnoticed;

this was Icarus drowning

The Starry Night

By Anne Sexton

That does not keep me from having a terrible need of—shall I say the word—religion. Then I go out at night to paint the stars.

Vincent Van Gogh in a letter to his brother

The town does not exist

except where one black-haired tree slips

up like a drowned woman into the hot sky.

The town is silent. The night boils with eleven stars.   

Oh starry, starry night! This is how

I want to die.

It moves. They are all alive.

Even the moon bulges in its orange irons   

to push children, like a god, from its eye.

The old unseen serpent swallows up the stars.   

Oh starry, starry night! This is how   

I want to die:

into that rushing beast of the night,   

sucked up by that great dragon, to split   

from my life with no flag,

no belly,

no cry.

Vincent (Starry, Starry Night) Lyrics

Starry, starry night, paint your palette blue and greyLook out on a summer's day with eyes that know the darkness in my soulShadows on the hills, sketch the trees and the daffodilsCatch the breeze and the winter chills, in colors on the snowy linen land

slide23

Now I understand what you tried to say to meHow you suffered for you sanity How you tried to set them freeThey would not listen they did not know how, perhaps they'll listen nowStarry, starry night, flaming flowers that brightly blazeSwirling clouds in violet haze reflect in Vincent's eyes of china blue

slide24

Colors changing hue, morning fields of amber grainWeathered faces lined in pain are soothed beneath the artist's loving hand

slide25

For they could not love you, but still your love was true And when no hope was left in sight, on that starry, starry nightYou took your life as lovers often do,But I could have told you, Vincent,This world was never meant for one as beautiful as youStarry, starry night, portraits hung in empty hallsFrameless heads on nameless walls with eyes that watch the world and can't forget.Like the stranger that you've met, the ragged man in ragged clothesThe silver thorn of bloody rose, lie crushed and broken on the virgin snow Now I think I know what you tried to say to meHow you suffered for you sanity How you tried to set them freeThey would not listen they're not listening still Perhaps they never will.
