Steve Abbott

Steve Abbott's newest collection, A LANGUAGE THE IMAGE SPEAKS, explores the dynamics of poetry in response to visual art. Using paintings, color and black-and-white photographs, and other visual images by a range of artists--whose work appears opposite the poems--Abbott brings a fresh dimension to both literary and visual experience. A delight for both the eye and the imagination.
