The Cave: An Adaptation of Plato’s Allegory in Clay
I am currently writing a poem for ReadWrite Poem based on Christine’s ‘Word fishing’ prompt. I have five words taken from five different poems in Derek Mahon’s Selcted Poems, which seem to have lead me to think about Plato’s allegory of the cave. I’ve chosen this adaptation from quite a numberof short films on YouTube, not because it’s the most faithful to Plato’s Republic but, because it best represents the way I’m thinking and I like the clay figures. Hopefully, I’ll post an early draft of the poem tomorrow.
