What are poets looking at, looking for, when they walk into a room of pictures? Poets on Painters attempts to answer this question by bringing together, for the first time, essays by modern American and British poets about painting. The poets bring to their task a fresh eye and a freshened language, vivid with nuance and color and force.
J. D. McClatchy is Poetry Editor of The Yale Review, and his poems, essays, and reviews appear regularly in The New Republic, The New Yorker and The New York Times Book Review.
