Poetry in Fantasy: Yesterday and Today
Time: 11am-12pm, Nov. 7, Regency F
Panelists: Mike Allen (M), Maria Alexander, Rain Graves, David Lunde, Laurel Winter
Description: Including poetry in fantasy, both by the author and quoted from other sources, used to be more common, such as Alice in Wonderland, The King of Elfland’s Daughter, The Lord of the Rings, and The Worm Ouroboros. Why is poetry not as prevalent now as in the past? Are certain types of poetry, such as non-formal or non-rhyming verse, under-used in fantasy?
I should also be part of the Mass Autograph Signing as well and will have books.
