BUILDING BRIDGES: AN INTERNATIONAL ANTHOLOGY OF EKPHRASIS
'This book is a product of many international workshops and I see it has indisputable social meaning as it helps us to see our own culture with fresh eyes.’ Riina Katajavuori, Poet.
In this anthology the parochial meets the global and vice versa. Poets from Finland and Britain - and from elsewhere – tell something about the object they observe but bring themselves and their own history into the resulting poem. In the best cases we are given several very different poems about the same painting/photograph.
Whether it is Akseli Gallen-Kallela’s 19th century symbolistic painting or contemporary photographic art by Kev Howard, the poems take a personal, surprising stand to the artworks in question.
