The Poet and the Flea: reimagining Blake a talk by G E Gallas

'The Poet and the Flea' is a reimagining of Blake's life through the medium of the graphic novel.

'The Poet and the Flea' is a reimaging of Blake’s life through the
medium of the graphic novel. Blake’s intellect and creativity on
one hand and relations and emotions on the other are explored
through the juxtaposition of image and word.
The character The Flea – based on Blake’s 'The Ghost of a Flea' –
serves as the graphic novel’s sinister antagonist. So where better to
convene than 17 South Molton Street, the house in which Blake
created his iconic painting?
In this talk, the author/illustrator will discuss the provenance of
The Poet and the Flea and what it means to ‘reimagine.’
G. E. Gallas is a screenwriter and graphic novelist who resides
in San Francisco, California. She is a graduate of New York
University: Gallatin School of Individualized Study, where she
created her own major: a cross-cultural study of storytelling. Her
works include screenplay 'Who is Laurence Harvey?' and graphic
novel 'The First Reich' (a collaboration with Shannon Brady) among
others. Currently, Gallas publishes 'The Poet and the Flea' on
thepoetandtheflea.wordpress.com with a new page every week.
