Product Details

Praise

“The intertwining of the visual and the literary is the underlying basis for this provocative and thoughtful anthology . . . What is undeniable is the pleasure in slowly sifting through Gutterman’s choices . . . Gutterman has been brooding, he says, on the associations between poetry and the visual arts for 30 years, and his choice is both intriguing and captivating. It makes us look more intensely, feel — and think.”

Art Quarterly
“This book would make a charming gift for a literary sort with an eye for art, or vice versa. Art ranges from Vermeer to Edward Hopper, Mark Rothko and Larry Rivers. The poets flow from Shakespeare to William Carlos Williams and Rainer Maria Rilke.”

StarTribune
“[T]here are so many unexpected delights: a six line poem by Wislawa Szymborska on Vermeer’s The Milkmaid is both austere and joyfully optimistic. Anne Sexton’s quietly screaming riffs on mortality connect with intimate passion to Van Gogh’s The Starry Night.”
