My Favorite Poem

without comments

Over at Vox, today’s Vox Hunt—a variant of its Question of the Day feature—asked us to scour the web for examples of our favorite poem.  I don’t usually play this game, but how could I resist the chance to see how Dorothy Parker’s Résumé was represented on YouTube?  I couldn’t.  And I found some good examples, including this one, which I’d forgotten, from Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle.

If you prefer Angelina Jolie to Jennifer Jason Leigh, try this version from Girl, Interrupted.  Some other YouTube finds: a creepy man’s bathroom-mirror version and a pretty adorable animation.
