Poetry Notes

Cere-ious Collaborations

Taking a more archaic approach are poet Susan Howe (My Emily Dickinson, etc.) and artist and critic Susan Bee (The M / E / A / N / I / N / G Book)<"Pensive itinerants and exhorters/ gathering manna in the morning"Bed Hangings. The book juxtaposes fragmentary texts culled from a variety of early American sources, with Bee's clipped caricatures, altered engravings and slyly reconfigured silhouettes iconically pointing the way back to "ten thousandth truth/ ...as if tumbling were apt/ parable preached in/ hedge-sparrow gospel."
