Remains one of the best introductions to the reluctant surrealist. It is a touchstone for art writing and a virtuosic work of ekphrasis.(TLS)

A joy to read the eloquent poetic words about the eloquent collector / displayer / employer of ephemera; a small inspired combination, far outvaluing more academic voluminous volumes

This is an engaging interpretive access point to the imaginative and eclectic works of Joseph Cornell. It's not a must read nor a biography but another artists insight into the expansive possibilities of Cornell's world. Cornell's boxes act as gateways to dreamscapes full of potential, they offer stillness and beauty; are poetic in themselves. Simic does justice to the vision that is unmistakably Cornell's.

Interesting book but not quite what I was expecting, more poetic than fact based. Pity the copy broke into 2 pieces within an hour of arrival.
