9780892365982: Murano (Getty Trust Publications: J. Paul Getty Museum)

Murano, a recent work by the distinguished American poet Mark Doty, is a contemplative meditation on human mortality and the mystery of artistic creation. Addressed to his late friend, the poet Lynda Hull, the musings in Murano are set against the backdrop of Venice and the glassmaker's art, as practiced for centuries on the island of Murano in the Venetian lagoon.

This moving poem is illustrated with details of sixteen pieces of dazzling Murano glass from the collection of the Getty Museum. These fine, delicate objects paired with Doty's stirring words create an exceptional visual and verbal experience.

About the Author:


Mark Doty is the author of Sweet Machine (1998) and the memoir Firebird (1999). He teaches at the University of Houston.

Review:


"I don't think Mark Doty is capable of writing without grace: beauty in language is articulation for him; beauty in language is a form of meditation. This first thing the reader notices is the gorgeous tapestry of observation and sound, but then one recognizes the unflinching and unsparing quality of the art."--Robert Pinsky, United States Poet Laureate
