    1 thought on “Warhol-o-Rama

    1. Peter Oserick’s Warhol-O-Rama was published in tribute to what would have been the highly influential pop artist’s 80th birthday. The poetic cycle explores the connections (and influences, both ways) between Warhol and America in general—its tabloids, its urban legends, its media, its tourism, etc.). Even the table of contents is a tribute to Warhol—“Andy Warhol” starts the title of nearly every poem to reminisce verbally upon the multiple images of Mao or Monroe or Campbell’s Soup [...]

    2. This book was way too fun.Peter Oresick pays homage to the pioneer of serial art via serial art pastiches creating a quirky and highly entertaining serial portrait of the one and only Andy Warhol.I really *really* liked this.

For those like me, though, who have always been stuck on that line of considering Warhol's work art and considering it crass opportunism, well, that makes for a much more difficult recommendation. Oresick use [...]

    4. This is a unique and creative volumn of poetry---words, works that capture the life of Andy Warhol written in a variety of forms--and some with no form at all. Oresick, at times, writes the way Warhol himself would create. To understand exactly what he is doing you are at an advantage if you have some understanding of Warhol. If you don't understand Warhol, this book gives you background and knowledge of the man and his life. Andy himself would have loved this collection. Nah-sayers may be on al [...]
