Video of “Not Waving But Drowning” by Stevie Smith

Jim Avis has put together a haunting animated version of my comics interpretation of “Not Waving But Drowning,” a poem by the English poet Stevie Smith (1902-1971). The excellent reading is by Janet Harris.

You can find 24 other such “poetry comics” in my recent book, Poems to See By: A Comic Artist Interprets Great Poetry (Plough Publishing, 2020).
