 Exquisite corpse - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Exquisite corpse (also known as "exquisite cadaver" or "rotating corpse") is a method by which a collection of words or images are collectively assembled, the result being known as the exquisite corpse or cadavre exquis in French.
The game of exquisite corpse has been adapted to be played using computer graphics, the construction of Surrealist objects, and even an adaptation to architecture has been proposed.
Near the end of the play/film, as the already bizarre story reaches its most surreal point, Hedwig begins reminiscing about all the relationships and events in her life that have made her feel "cut...up into parts", with pieces going to various important people.

 The Why Files | Corpse flower blooms!
Corpse flowers evolved to take advantage of their own style of insect pollination.
The corpse flower is a gregarious type, and dislikes self-pollination.

 The Tim Burton Collective - Corpse Bride
The fast moving plot finds Victor gradually overcoming his fear and falling for the Corpse Bride, while Victoria, believing she has been abandoned, is forced to marry the vile Barkis.
The Corpse Bride finally finds peace and her murder is avenged (the identity of her murder probably won’t be a surprise to most people).
Corpse Bride isn’t as innovative (the stop motion animation has evolved to a point where you almost forget it’s stop motion), but it should be judged on its own merits.

 Corpse Bride - Palm Beach Post movie review | ajc.com   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-07-21)
Apparently based on a Russian folk tale, then transferred to Victorian Europe, Corpse Bride is the story of an arranged marriage interrupted when the groom-to-be inadvertently finds himself engaged to a different woman who comes from beyond the grave.
When he goes off to practice his lines, he meanders through a graveyard and conjures up the ghost of a woman named Emily (Helena Bonham Carter) — the title character — who insists he has just proposed to her.
And the closest Burton comes to a cute, Disneyfied sidekick for her is a chipper Peter Lorre-like maggot that often crawls out of her eye hole.

 Tim Burton revives stop-motion for `Corpse Bride'
But only in "Tim Burton's Corpse Bride" could that traditional movie role be played by a maggot that lives in one of the bride's eyes.
Like most Tim Burton stories, "Corpse Bride" is a familiar tale with a macabre twist.
Much of the visual and thematic power stems from the contrast between the drab, Victorian-era Land of the Living and the more colorful Land of the Dead, with Depp's character caught somewhere in between.

The Corpse is a great admirer of John Batki's translations of Joszef (we published some a few years ago), but we recognize the necessity of retranslating the great poets every decade.

In 44 B.C., a physician named Antistius examined the fresh corpse of Julius Caesar and, in science journalist Jessica Sachs's words, "announced that he knew which of the would-be emperor's twenty-three stab wounds had proved fatal," thus giving birth to a new science.
In Corpse, pop-science author Jessica Snyder Sachs makes the case that a possible solution might be in the under-appreciated (and horribly disgusting) fields of forensics entomology and forensics botany.
Very graphically, it is described how long it would take for a sunflower to grow out of a corpse's empty eye socket, or for maggots to pupate on a bloated belly.

Among Surrealist techniques exploiting the mystique of accident was a kind of collective collage of words or images called the cadavre exquis (exquisite corpse).
Based on an old parlor game, it was played by several people, each of whom would write a phrase on a sheet of paper, fold the paper to conceal part of it, and pass it on to the next player for his contribution.
Other examples are: "The dormitory of friable little girls puts the odious box right" and "The Senegal oyster will eat the tricolor bread." These poetic fragments were felt to reveal what Nicolas Calas characterized as the "unconscious reality in the personality of the group" resulting from a process of what Ernst called "mental contagion."

It did in "Beetlejuice" and in "Big Fish" and now in "Tim Burton's Corpse Bride" (as opposed to "Sally Field's Corpse Bride"?).
A tenderly macabre and beguilingly romantic tale of love beyond the grave vs. love above ground, the movie is rendered in stop-motion animation along the lines of Burton's earlier "The Nightmare Before Christmas." Only now, the painstaking technique, which can take eight hours for two seconds of film, has been occasionally beefed up with CGI.
In this stop-motion, animated feature, a young man is accidentally married to a mysterious Corpse Bride and whisked away to the underworld, while his real fiance waits bereft in the land of the living.
