9781847771322: We Look Like This

Including poems, sequences, and a prose memoir, this collection looks at the 20th century and its aftermath through the shattered lens of John Ruskin’s famous book and the work of certain modern painters. With steady, truth-telling poems, this compilation is not only inspired by the poet’s collaborations with artists, but also charts his remarkable journey from the backstreets of Philadelphia to Cambridge and Yale. Lyrical, philosophical, elegiac, and satirical as appropriate, these traditional verse forms draw on the landscapes of memory.

Book Description Carcanet Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New.. 214 x 134 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. In his poem Modern Painters Dan Burt looks at the twentieth century and its aftermath through the shattered lens of Ruskin s famous book and the work of certain modern painters. We look like this after things fall apart;/The painting is the autopsy report, reflecting on two World Wars, stepping over the corpse of the Enlightenment. His poems are steady, hard, truth-telling in the way of the painters he most admires, and proof against sentiment. He matches the scale of his concerns with a substantial large- and small-scale poetic architecture, lyrical, philosophical, elegiac or satirical as appropriate. Dan Burt, a master of traditional forms, has published two chapbooks and an art book. This is his first full collection and includes poems, sequences and his celebrated prose memoir Certain Windows .
