Prompts for RWJ, Prompt 164

Breakfast-after-the-Bath-II

Edgar Degas, Breakfast after the Bath II

Impressionism is “a style or movement in painting originating in France in the 1860s, characterized by a concern with depicting the visual impression of the moment, especially in terms of the shifting effect of light and colour.” In terms of literary style, it “seeks to capture a feeling or experience rather than to achieve accurate depiction.” So would you like to have a go at doing an impressionistic poem? You can do one of this painting or any other you like.

  1. Edgar Degas Speaks His Mind

    My friends drop away
    but I prefer solitude
    and I so complain
    and help them depart.

    I have too much work to do.

    And besides that, Jews,
    they keep secrets so
    I cannot tell who is who.

    You call me to head
    your movement… they write
    in the stupid magazines.
    Impressionistic
    they call my art – No!
    I resist this bastard word!
    To Hell with you all!
