Believing the Line — The Jack Siegel Poems
by Mark Silverberg • drawings & paintings by Jack Siegel • 76 poems • 112 pages
AN EXQUISITE, PATIENT COMBINATION of Mark Silverberg’s taut poetry and Jack Siegel’s portraits of Toronto, Montreal, and New York City life.
"Silverberg is an expert in American poetry, visual arts.... [He] prefaces the reproduced art with usually abbreviated lyrics that attain the openness of William Blake and the humaneness of Proverbs and Ecclesiastes."—George Elliott Clarke
"These poems...give voice to the yearning that all smitten viewers suffer on seeing work that moves us."—Kathy Mac
