Dr. David Seaman composes book of poetry

Dr. David Seaman has composed a chapbook of poetry, which consists of dozens of his translations of a single French poem, in a variety of media, from the classic imitative form to visual poetry and iconography. Pomegrenades was published by the small press Broken Rules in Ste-Anne de Bellevue in Canada, which hosted a launch event on March 17, 2015.

The numbered, limited edition was available for signing and sales at Twigs Café in Ste-Anne, a suburb of Montréal, PQ, Canada. David read selections in two parts, first a series of sonnets following the original poem, Grenades, by Paul Valéry; second, readings featuring experiments such as a war comic version, which expanded on the idea of grenades being the weapon, “hand grenades.”
