New Book release

Figure 1

A collection of poems by author Beth McDermott in conversation with art and the natural world, Figure 1  (Pine Row Press, 2022) is rooted in the ekphrastic tradition and features the mind at work framing and dismantling images and exploring what exists beneath the surfaces of our socially constructed selves. In these poems, beauty is deep-seated, landscapes are historical, and paintings and photographs are interpretable.
