Reflections, Paintings and Poems from a Poet's Gallery Launched by Poets Choice Publishing and the William Meredith Foundation
This will be the third collection of Elisavietta Ritchie’s work Poets Choice has been privileged to publish as a unique offering by the William Meredith Foundation. The foundation is dedicated to continuing the legacy of the former US Poet Laureate through publications and educational programs in the arts.
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.
