Project Main Details

Beautiful Poems for Ugly Children 
The Project:

In this series, Beautiful Poems, for Ugly Children, I intend to film brief evocative shorts, inspired by classic literature. This piece will unite the rhythmic pace of Howitt’s The Spider & the Fly, with a peculiar visual flare.

A live voice over rendition of Howitt’s climatic end, will subtly narrate this 2min exercise.

The Audience:

The audience will be single quadrant male 13-35yrs. The voice will reaffirm the typical masculine fantasy of a classic seductress, however, underscored with a cold vindictiveness that leaves a lasting sting.

The reading will quicken in pace (naturally around the 7th stanza) and suggest a predator restlessly on the verge of getting its prey.

This poem has been appropriated from the original, to convey a female perspective.

Script Details

Attachment provided by the voice seeker can be found here:

So she wove a subtle web, in a little corner sly,
And set her table ready to dine upon the fly.
Then she came out to her door again, and merrily did sing
“Come hither, hither, pretty fly, with the pearl and silver wing:
Your robes are green and purple; there’s a crest upon your head;
Your eyes are like the diamond bright, but mine are dull as lead.”
Alas, alas! How very soon this silly little fly,
Hearing her wily flattering words, came slowly flitting by.
With buzzing wings he hung aloft, then near and nearer drew
Thinking only of her brilliant eyes, and green and purple hue;
Thinking only of her crested head — poor foolish thing! At last,
up jumped the cunning spider, and fiercely held him fast.
She dragged him up her winding stair, into her dismal den,
Within her little parlor; but he ne’er came out again!
