Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Lines in Long Array contains poetry by Geoffrey Brock, Jorie Graham, Eavan Boland, Dave Smith, Paul Muldoon to mention a few. They are excellent. These are set alongside poems by Whitman, Melville, Dickinson, Bierce, etc. A glorious selection of photographs by Sally Mann accompany the past and present poems and alongside period photographs by Alexander Gardner. A beautiful book.
