Synopsis

The Modern Portrait Poem From Dante Gabriel Rossetti to Ezra Pound by Frances Dickey

Reviews

This is a sweeping, smart, and creative study of the interaction between the artistic portrait and the modern 'portrait
poem by male artists from late

-Victorian to modern. Frances Dickey extends a rich, deeply instilled knowledge of art history and modern poetics to their interface in a stunning trajectory spanning the Pre-Raphaelites, Swinburne, Whistler, Futurist painting, Eliot, Pound, and the later Modernism of William Carlos Williams. She raises provocative questions concerning the relation between interiority and engagement, identity, gender, and the body while elucidating the shifting cultural milieu and changes in aesthetic form. A long overdue, exciting, rich, and informative book.--Cassandra Laity, Drew University Among the outstanding qualities of this book are its fruitful lines of inquiry, its careful and precise arguments, its deft and meticulous reading of poems and paintings, and its acute attention to historical and literary detail. Dickey's book makes a lucid, engaging contribution to the study of literary Modernism and the visual arts.--Jahan Ramazani, University of Virginia This is a sweeping, smart, and creative study of the interaction between the artistic portrait and the modern 'portrait
