Heart to Heart: New Poems Inspired by Twentieth-Century American Art

Twentieth-Century American Art / Author, Barbara Sturman / Author, Sand

Editor Jan Greenberg invited poets to choose a 20th-century work of American art and write a poem ""stimulated by it""; the result is Heart to Heart: New Poems Inspired by Twentieth-Century American Art. Jane Yolen contemplates Grant Wood's American Gothic, Angela Johnson one of Faith Ringgold's quilts, and Ronald Wallace two diverse works by Alexander Calder. The volume pays homage to 47 different paintings, sculptures and photographs. (Apr.)
