Cynthia Cotten, Vermont childrens author, <B>World Make Way: New Poems Inspired by Art from the Metropolitan Museum</B>

Cat Watching A Spider--Oide Toko -- ca 1888-92

Edited by Lee Bennett Hopkins

Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.

Based on these words of Leonardo da Vinci, eighteen poets have written new poems inspired by some of the most popular works in the collection of The Metropolitan Museum.

I have one poem in this collection: "Resistance", inspired by Rosa Bonheur's "The Horse Fair" (1852-55).

From the Reviewers


The book’s true spotlight is on diversity—in the background of the poets, the style of the artworks, and the method of interpretation chosen by each poet . . . The poems emphasize that in art and poetry there is no right answer, rather a myriad of different interpretations. Accordingly, there is something for every young reader in this delightful collection.
