Instead of a card, why not send words? Poems about art have a long and vivid history, and some of our greatest poets have tried to capture in verse the beguiling worlds of colour on canvas. Geoff Dyer’s remarkably wide-ranging selection encourages us to look at familiar and unfamiliar paintings and artists with fresh eyes. These poems are sure to delight every art lover, reminding us that any painting worth its salt has a thousand different meanings.
Geoff Dyer is the award-winning author of numerous works of fiction and non-fiction. His books have been translated into 24 languages.
Poems by Fleur Adcock, Moniza Alvi, WH Auden, Sue Hubbard, Mark Doty, Linda France, Mimi Khalvati, RS Thomas, Tomas Tranströmer and William Carlos Williams.
