This week in our discussion of Dorothy Parker’s Elbow we consider the tattoo and identity — the way a tattoo can broadcast one’s identity, and how it might seem to have the power to create it, impose it, even take it away.
The tattoo has a story, and in many ways is a story. In our discussion of Dorothy Parker’s Elbow this week, we look a the tattoos’ stories and their scars.
Whether one is inked from head to toe or repelled by the very notion of a tattoo, there’s no escaping that tattoos fascinate. Join us in September for a new book club selection, Dorothy Parker’s Elbow: Tattoos on Writers, Writers on Tattoos.
Tattoos as art, trading guns for art, pigs writing poetry, and taking poetry into outer space. It’s another week of our Top Ten Poetic Picks.
