Abstract

'The Book of Hours' is an online poetry film project which contains 48 poetry films made in collaboration with 27 filmmakers. Through the process of creation I have explored how to bring the immediacy and vibrancy of spoken word into the poetry film form. My project is experimental in its use of spoken word in poetry film, and innovative in its approach to creating a themed collection of poetry films. This critical paper contextualises this research. My methodology for this has been to examine theories of poetry film, analyse historic and current poetry film projects and approaches to writing about contemplative poetry, and to trace my creative journey in the creation of 'The Book of Hours'.
