    Channelling Andy Warhol: Extending Those 15 Minutes of Fame

    Peter Oriesick ('For a Living: The Poetry of Work', 'Working Classics: Poems on Industrial Life') is probably the poet most appropriate for creating this survey of a very peculiar and important artist - Andy Warhol. WARHOL-O- RAMA is in many respects a biography as important as any on this unique artits who invented Pop Art. And in keeping with the style of Warhol, Oresick has written poems in many styles, intentionally (it would seem) plagiarizing other poets in the way Warhol very freely copied other artists to make his own brand of restated reality. The result is a book of not only well-written poetry but also poems that crawl inside the psyche of the elusive artist in a way so clever that turning each page is an adventure in The Factory! Oresick divides his travelogue or rake's progress into six sections: Warhollabaloo, Warholevision, Warholanomics. Warholocaust, Warholafatigue, and Warholastalgia. In each section he explores different aspects of Andy Warhol's persona. Some are lyrical, some are nonsensical, some are imaginary conversations (or rather non-conversations) with the spaced out artist, and some are simply sonnets or elegies that celebrate what would have been Warhol's 80th birthday. This is a book for lovers of poetry, for admirers of the space in the art world that Andy Warhol created and over which he still reigns, and for students of art - whether in classroom or armchair. It is as delicious as a can of tomato soup (or Marilyn Monroe, or Liz Taylor, etc)! Highly recommended. Grady Harp
