Triangles of Light
The Edward Hopper PoemsBook - 2009
Conjuring the voice of Edward Hopper, this powerful collection of poetry investigates the mind of an iconic American painter. Lyrical and beautifully crafted, the poems convey both frightening and amusing messages as "Hopper" commentates on his own paintings?from the iconic Nighthawks to his depiction of his wife and himself taking a final bow in Two Comedians?as well as those of other artists. Shocking in their honesty, these poems also provide a window into the American Modernist period due to their biographical nature and evaluations of the visual arts.
