Hurt, The Shadow: The Josephine Hopper Poems

Hurt, The Shadow: The Josephine Hopper Poems

by Carole Barbara Stone




Poetry. "Edward Hopper's paintings fascinate poets because they contain the essence of American loneliness. Carole Stone's poems are not just deft reproductions of those paintings but vivid commentary on the transaction between Jo (wife and sole model) and the painter, and that between the eye and the world that enabled him to make these canvases. The poems are splendidly evocative and insightful."—Harvey Shapiro
