But don't cry for this Spaniard just yet. And pretend laughter was not invented either. For the subject matter of these poems is the early childhood/teen years of famed painter Pablo Picasso, who was born in Malaga, Spain in 1881. Although wispy yet wimpy, the poems explore Picasso's art, his passion, his homeland. Holman's attempt to say much about the early inspiration of such a great artist in his adopted city of Barcelona without saying much at all......remember the whole `less is more' thing?.......falls flat and rings a little hollow. To be perfectly honest, when I first heard the title `picasso in barcelona,' I envisioned epic-style poetry along the lines of Shakespeare or Cervantes that might weave a storyline in say a more flowery manner. Of course, I realize that style of poetry is outdated and instead Holman offers a snapshot rendition to Picasso's early life and inspiration in Barcelona.Read more ›
