Editorial Reviews

This beautifully designed poetry anthology. . .joins other important ekphrastic collections, like Ed Hirsch’s Transforming Visions: Writers on Art and Emily Fragos’ Art and Artists: Poems, collections that connect the eye with the word. . . . The strategies these poets use to enter Piero della Francesca’s works are wildly diverse, but all convey a reverence for the Italian artist’s craftsmanship and simplicity. Their modern responses to this beloved Renaissance painter . . . suggest the depth and timeless quality of his vision. — Lisa Mullenneaux (Harvard Review Online)
