Landscapes I & II

really liked it 4.0  ·  Rating Details ·  12 Ratings  ·  2 Reviews
In confident prose poems, “Abstraction puts on her cowboy boots” and strides into the unknown. Employing collage reminiscent of Gertrude Stein’s breathless dazzle, Lewis creates landscapes where surreal meets New England bucolic, meaning is arrived at cumulatively, and the animated and the “real” converse.
Paperback, 80 pages
Published March 1st 2006 by Alice James Books
