Clotheslines: A Collection of Poetry and Art

Overview

Whether we are fashion forward or oblivious to trends, clothing is our universal means of self-expression. Far from frivolous, clothing has served as much more than mere covering. Artists and writers throughout history have found inspiration in all kinds of garments, turning to everyday items like dresses and shoes to express the deeper emotions attached to them.

Overview

Whether we are fashion forward or oblivious to trends, clothing is our universal means of self-expression. Far from frivolous, clothing has served as much more than mere covering. Artists and writers throughout history have found inspiration in all kinds of garments, turning to everyday items like dresses and shoes to express the deeper emotions attached to them. With the same engaging concept he applied to Home, Stan Tymorek mixes and matches poems about clothing with paintings and photographs in an anthology that offers a fresh perspective on what we wear.

By juxtaposing 50 poems and images from different places and times, Tymorek provides couplings that are at once provocative, poignant, thoughtful, and funny. An Edward Steichen photograph from Vogue modernizes an Elizabethan sonnet. Max Ernst and Elizabeth Bishop question the notions of gender contained in a hat. Jim Dine and John Updike jointly consider the strictures of the suit. Among the featured poets and artists are Robert Creeley, Dorothy Parker, Calvin Trillin, Sonia Delaunay, Gustav Klimt, and Andy Warhol.

Author Biography: Stan Tymorek, editor of Abrams' Home, is a copywriter at LifeSketch.com.

A former creative director at Lands' End, Inc., he lives in Madison, Wisconsin.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Juxtaposing visual and verbal art, Clotheslines is a unique collection of poems and pieces of art that both focus on articles of clothing. Collages, paintings, sketches, prints, and photographs are paired with related poems, each illuminating the other and revealing a new perspective. Klimt, Steichen, Schiele, and Sargent are among the visual artists included in the collection, and it features poems by great writers such as Edna St. Vincent Millay, Dorothy Parker, and Pablo Neruda.
Publishers Weekly
Partially inspired by Viktor Shklovsky (who wrote that "clothes say that we reserve to ourselves the symbol of our body as fate"), Clotheslines: A Collection of Poetry and Art pairs poems and artworks on facing pages. Editor Stan Tymorek (Home: A Collection of Poetry and Art) puts Warhol's screenprint "Letter to the World (The Kick), Martha Graham" with Diane Wakoski's "The Pink Dress." Lines from Lorine Neidecker ("The need/ these closed-in days// to move before you/ smooth-draped/ and color-elated// in a favorable wind") appears with Egon Schiele's "Portrait of a Woman," among other provocative pairings.
