Books Info:

The World in a Frame free pdf Will Barnet was born twenty-five years after Emily Dickinson died. Both from New England, the artist and the poet found inspiration for much of their work in their region's geography, climate, and culture. Dickinson (1830-1886) changed the face of poetry with inventive phrasing, punctuation, rhyme schemes, and subject matter. Barnet (b. 1911) has maintained a vibrant intellectual and artistic life, bringing ever-expanding vision and heart to his work. That work has shown him to be one of America's most important contemporary artists. Barnet's respect and love for Dickinson's poetry sing from the drawings reproduced in this book. From his portraits of the poet, animated by and symbiotic with her word-portraits of others ("To pity those that know her not- Is helped by the regret- That those who know her, know her less- The nearer her they get") to his picture of a tree full of crows ("The saddest noise, the sweetest noise, The maddest noise that grows, The birds, they make it in the spring, At night's delicious close"), Barnet captures the essence of Emily Dickinson's work. "The World in a Frame's" forty-six poems by Emily Dickinson and twenty-four drawings by Will Barnet are supported and elucidated by critic and essayist Christopher Benfey's insightful introductory text.
