Poor Joseph is a mini-narrative about one of history's most curious figures, The Elephant Man. Born in London, in 1862, Joseph Merrick displayed all of the attributes of a normal boy. It wasn't until a few years later that his now-famous deformities began to appear. Joseph's tragic form allowed this gentle soul to gain a sort of celebrity after many years of sideshows and hardships. Poor Joseph is meant to be a simple glimpse into the life of this man.show more
