Format: Paperback
Wonderful poems, one better than the next. I especially loved Dan Fitzgerald's "Mona Lisa Smiles," Simon Eggertsen's "Lisa Gherardini Might Be Pregnant," Eric Tuazon's "Gynecology," and Gerald Locklin's "Frans Hals: Boy with a Lute circa 1625." Wislawa Szymborska's "Vermeer" blew me away. Rick Lupert has done a great job. Definitely a book to buy and savor. Bravo!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a terrific anthology of local and international poets including Nobel Laureate, Wislawa Szymborska, Jerry Quickley, Gerald Locklin, Brendan Constantine, Suzanne Lummis, Laurel Ann Bogen, and many others. The editor, Rick Lupert, has selected work from a diverse group of poets. And the poetry remains consistently moving throughout, bringing to life inanimate art through the poet's eye to remember and revitalize the initial expression . Highly recommended for those interested in art, Ekphrastia, and really great collections of poetry. Check it out!
