Second half of the 19th century. The Poet struggles to live through his fiancée's unexpected death. He finds refuge in writing.


i get it

I get this, it's very insightful. This is about how majority of dudes see and approach girls. All they want is to see her naked, or get some poon. Then in the end he gets rejected. All the zombies represent all the other dudes who are like, "you too? :)" then in the end he hangs himself because he's the 40 year old virgin. Good stuff.


Somebody characterized this as "adult".... I would say "arcane" or "occult" or perhaps "self-indulgent" in the sense of being the artist's version of a Rube Goldberg machine. Less is often more, I think.

Four out of five stars for undeniably excellent quality and non-trivial style.

Fucking Awesome

This is one of the coolest things I've seen on Newgrounds since littleFoot. Fantastic graphics, amazingly stylistic, spot-on sound, creepy story. It's weird that something like this is actually on NG. It reminds me a little of the stuff done by that guy who did Objectionable Aparatus. This was great. Very good job.

Atmospheric, adult, cool

Very cool atmosphere to the piece, loved the characterization. The movie had a unique voice, idea and style. Confronting and thoughtful, good camera work and use of animation techniques.


Sweet Stuff

Wow, this is some pretty awesome Flash. The graphics were amzaing, the it had a deep story. I just have one thing to ask MAKE MORE. I love the work that you do.
