In fairness, though, the paintings do look pretty good -- the colouring is vibrant, and the pictures sizable -- even if their connection to the poetry was tenous at best. They have basically taken a random selection of Chagall's paintings, and paired them off unfathomably with certain lines of Cummings' poem.
Looking through this book was not a pleasant experience. And it's a shame too, because the idea of this book is fantastic, and a lot more could have been done. If they had merely included a commentary on each page, or even contrasted the works more professionally, then the book could have been ten times better. Even some short bios, or some quotes would have made the book marginally more interesting.
If you like Cummings, avoid this book. If you like Chagall, consider warily.
