Washington, DC, November 19, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Poets Choice Publishing is proud to announce the publication of Elisavietta Ritche's third collection of poems with the press, (previous two collections with the press include: Babushka's Beads: A Geography of Genes Poets-Choice Publishers (2016) Guy Wires Poets-Choice Publishers (2015)). This remarkable collection, rich imagination and a talent for metaphors perfectly represent the unique voices the foundation wishes to present to the literary world. Here, a reader sees a poet at the top of her game, and game is the precise word for the often whimsical accounts she gives of the painting on which she reflects.
Poets often employ this symbiotic relationship with the visual arts, a literary device known as ekphraksis used to convey the deeper symbolism of the corporeal art form by means of a separate medium such as poetry. The poet contemplates a work of art and responds with a lifetime of experience and curiosity to imagine the world found in a given painting.
This happy collaboration between artist and poet enhances a reader's understanding of a painting, as well as taking joy in the work from a verbal prospective. These poems are a gift to all of Lisa Ritchie's devoted followers who love how poetry can buoy the human spirit in the hands of such a fierce intelligence and curiosity, as well as new readers unfamiliar with her work or the work of the William Meredith Foundation.
Reflections is available at Poets-Choice.com and will be featured on Amazon and other major internet outlets. Please visit WilliamMeredithFoundation.org for more information on its programs.
