About the Author
First performed in the Italian Renaissance Gallery of the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford in April 2014, Diana Moore’s ‘A Visitor to the Forest’ gets to the heart of Paolo Uccello’s famous painting of ‘The Hunt in the Forest’. Written to be performed, it is rhythmical and playful, yet also a unique way to study the making of ‘The Hunt in the Forest’.

Diana Moore's "A Visitor to the Forest" is a gem, from its smart ruby-toned cover to the multi-faceted poem that takes on various personalities. Clever and playful, Moore's poem perfectly captures the clamor and excitement of Uccello's master work, from Uccello's own thoughts as he worked to the painted dogs barking on the canvas. The gorgeous graphic design complements the poem with full-color enlargements and graphic components that sympathetically marry text and image. This diminutive book is thing of beauty, inside and out. It would be a tasteful gift for art and poetry lovers, as well as educators. The fact that the book is available for purchase in the Ashmolean Museum-England's oldest public museum-speaks well of both the poet and the designer.

What a charming book. This really brings to life Uccello's famous painting -- with all the clamour and racket of a real hunt.
