    schema:description "This book is a gallery of words and images that celebrates the sister arts of poetry and painting. John Hollander, the eminent poet and critic, has selected more than fifty works of painting, print, drawing, photography, and sculpture, from antiquity to the present, and paired them with poems that have addressed the images in their verses. The result is an illuminating and ingeniously organized chronicle of words and images in conversation, as well as a powerful introduction to how, across Western culture, great writers have been inspired by artists' images. Hollander opens the book with an extended critical introduction to the ecphrastic tradition, and closes it with one of his own poems about Monet's La route de ferme St-Simeon, a moving dialogue between seeing and saying, silence and representation. Lavishly illustrated, this book is a powerful witness to the dynamic relations between the visual and verbal that are at the heart of Western culture."@en ;
