Richard Warren

20thc British art and poetry (mainly), plus bits of my own – "Clearly I tap to you clearly along the plumbing of the world" (W S Graham)

Valley of the dolls

I’m not really in the business of lifting stuff wholesale from other sites, but I can’t resist passing on some personal favourites from Uneek Doll Designs, as offered by creator Debbie Ritter of Cullman Alabama, on the Etsy shopping site. Tucked in alongside Prince Harry, Santa and the Sock Monkey is a fine range of home made poetical, literary and artistic figures, with the odd psychoanalyst thrown in …. I think Ms Kahlo would definitely have approved of Debbie’s version of The Two Fridas. Click and enjoy!

Albrecht Durer

The Two Fridas

Andy Warhol

Jackson Pollock

Sigmund Freud

Carl Jung

Edgar Allen Poe

George Orwell

Aldous Huxley

Anne Sexton

James Joyce

W H Auden

The Joyce and Auden dolls are rather wonderful, but best of all have to be Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath – stunning!
