Poetry as Painting
Poetry and painting have been compared since antiquity. John Hollander (echoing Simonides) has said that ‘Works of art are silent; poetry speaks its mind’.
In this workshop presented by UWA Publishing, critically acclaimed poet Paul Hetherington will demonstrate how visual imagery activates and energises poetry.
