Product Description


Bishop's paintings are not 'interesting' forays into an essentially alien form, nor are they divorced from the central intelligence of the poems... they come from the same extraordinary source and make a justified claim to attention in their own right. --Jamie McKendrick, Times Literary Supplement

HASH(0x9f636b94) out of 5 stars A Poet's Paintings 5 Aug. 2000
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Elizabeth Bishop was an elusive and multi-faceted woman. Gaining a glimpse of her through her poetry, some details through her prose, she has remained enigmatic, despite the many volumes of criticism and biography dedicated to her life and art. Her paintings show us another side of her creativity, and in "Exchanging Hats" we are provided with a greater depth of understanding of her creative abilities. The paintings themselves, spare and pragmatic, are as geographical and domestic as her poetry. More subtle than they first appear,they illuminate her life from a different perspective. For anyone interested in Bishop,this book is essential.

Having read and studied Elizabeth Bishop for many years, I was happy to find this book. I have no complaints about the amateurish quality of her paintings. Indeed, I find it charming and admire her for doing this work. I will look over this book many times.

HASH(0x9f641468) out of 5 stars expensive little rarity 6 Aug. 2010
By SuziSez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I can understand why Elizabeth Bishop claimed not to be an artist, so why then, was this published. The visual ability of some writers is well known, but not back then, maybe. Also some artists and poets are prose all the way.
This was purchased for a research project. Historical overview mainly.
