Klock, Geoff Comic Books are Literature Literature- Poetry,
Literature- Authors,
Literature- Other
I am the author of How to Read Superhero Comics and Why and I have a doctorate in nineteenth and twentieth century poetry from Oxford University. I am an energetic and engaging public speaker, and I specialize in bringing the richest view of literature to a general audience without needless academic jargon. “Comic Books as Literature” demonstrates how the appreciation of comic books and graphic novels – by libraries and the general public – is as important as the appreciation of poetry. I discuss how both comics and poetry are read by a small, dedicated fan base. This knowledgeable audience allows writers to work dense and complex images and metaphors into their creations. I follow a set of these images in the comics and compare it to a similar set of images in poetry. At the end of the presentation audiences will leave with an appreciation of a new art form. This is a one-hour presentation and could be developed into a series if so desired.
