“Poems to See By” by comic artist Julian Peters put new images to classic poetry. He tells a story of pictures put to words that have for decades captivated readers’ imagination. His images and scenes revitalize some of the greatest works of poetry ever written and inspire readers in new ways.
Some of the poets featured in this new collection include: Maya Angelou, Emily Dickinson, Langston Hughes, Seamus Heaney, Thomas Hardy, William Wordsworth, e.e. cummings, Dylan Thomas, W.B. Yeats, and T.S. Eliot, among many others.
The illustrations with the words bring out new meaning that you might not have “seen” before or ideas that you didn’t realize were there. I thoroughly enjoyed both the works chosen and the accompanying artwork. This was a great find!
As both a poet and an artist, I found this collection that combined two of my favorite things in the world to be both splendid and interesting. There was so much to love about it.
