After reading this book, I know it adds to our knowledge of rhetorics and ekphrasis. It is clearly written.
It is comprehensive with historical background, and the latest developments in the art of ekphrasis with psychoanalysis and 21st century with Derridean deconstruction. I am a fan of her work, and her poetry is also a wonderful example of poetic art with metaphor and imagery throughout. A wonderful writer, and an honour to read more of her work.
