Poems Inspiried by Night of the Living Dead
Released as a low-budget shocker for drive-ins, Night of Living Dead soon evolved into a subversive midnight movie and now ranks as a classic, giving birth to the zombie genre with its unsettling messages for our society barely holding together at the seams. But Night of the Living Dead remains so powerful by explaining so little. Enter poet Will Nixon to imagine who these zombies are, what they hunger for, and why the goddess Venus should join them naked on the lawn. As Sigmund Freud told us, Thanatos (death) and Eros (the erotic) are the twin forces that propel civilization. Watch Night of the Living Dead set to poems and learn why zombies may be the secret heroes of our time.
Will Nixon's collection, Love in the City of Grudges, features poems inspired by Night of the Living Dead. His other poetry books include My Late Mother as a Ruffed Grouse, The Fish are Laughing, and When I Had It Made. He's the author of The Pocket Guide to Woodstock and co-author with Michael Perkins of Walking Woodstock: Journeys into the Wild Heart of America's Most Famous Small Town.
His photography show, a series inspired by Cindy Sherman's Untitled Film Stills that featured him in a crow mask, appeared at Green Kill in February.
