About this title:

Synopsis: With 140 reproductions representing sixty-eight authors, this book exhibits the artwork of such great literary figures as William Blake, Charlotte Bronte, T.S. Eliot, William Faulkner, Herman Hesse, Victor Hugo, Henrik Ibsen, D.H. Lawrence, Edgar Allan Poe, and Tennessee Williams

From Publishers Weekly: Along with such well-known examples as William Blake and Edward Lear, many famous writers have painted, drawn or sculpted, and even if the quality of their graphic work is eclipsed by their literary output, it nonetheless offers clues to their psyches. Poe's portrait of the woman he planned to marry the year he died aches with hypersensitivity. Anne Sexton's oil of a couple arguing is like a primal scream. Michener's painting Biography, a checkerboard of squares filled with personal symbols referring to events in his life, reflects his proclivity for cramming massive amounts of data into a narrative framework. Many of the 68 "doubly gifted" authors represented here turned out very good artwork. Notable examples are Gunter Grass's acid etchings, Breton's surrealist hallucinations and Hart Crane's somber painting of trees at nightfall. Pictures by Ibsen, Winston Churchill, George Sand, Wilde and Strindberg make for a rare, intriguing glimpse of the creative process. QPB alternate.
