Description - Feathers from the Angel's Wing by Dana Prescott
In this exquisite anthology, esteemed poets from America, Italy, and elsewhere follow the renowned Piero Trail, a route through Tuscany and Umbria that features some of the most acclaimed frescoes by the legendary Renaissance painter, Piero della Francesca. The resulting poems-including ones by Henri Cole, Jorie Graham, Charles Wright, and Patti Smtih-capture Piero's incomparable influence in the artistic, literary, and spiritual worlds, generated as they are by the transcendence of Piero's timeless powers. Including twelve reproductions of Piero's frescoes, a foreword by Rosanna Warren, and an introduction by anthologist Dana Prescott, Feathers from the Angel's Wing is unforgettable collection, a book to be cherished by lovers of art, artists, and the spirits that move them.
