Sixty-seventh Connection: Bewail

August 3, 2016

 

 

From the list of be words in my grandmother’s 1925 New Universal Self-Pronouncing Dictionary, which in itself is a richly descriptive found poem of words we do not often use in our contemporary speech (small sample: becloud, bedevil, bedim, bemoan, beshrew, besot, betwixt),  I selected 8 for my fan shaped artists’ book August B Fan ©1999. Each prefix be is replaced with a drawing of a bee. It is meant to be read aloud: become, behalf, befall, belong, bewail (detail shown here), behold, belove, begone .
