Today, I’m highlighting a new anthology that contains conversations with some of the masterworks in New England museums.

Editor Beatrice Lazarus says in the Preface, "... ekphrastic poets push deep inside the painted curves... ." What a poetic description of the ekphrastic poet's process!
B.K. Fisher writes in the Introduction, "ekphrasis invites both homage and backtalk", and the reader can see this clearly in the fifty-five poems. There is also a CD with the art and the poems together. I find myself reading and re-reading while I consider the art and try to see the paintings in the same way the poets saw them.
The link for ordering is here is here if you need an ekphrastic fix! The Roundup today is over at The Miss Rumphius Effect. Thank you for hosting, Tricia!
