    Fantastic concept Seeing the works of art through the poets eyes really helped me see in them, connect with them on a deeper level Many were new to me, though, and that was interesting, too I really liked what Bobbi Katz did in Lessons from a Painting by Rothko for one of Marc Rothko s untitled colored boxes from 1960 She used a particular format that I ve forgotten the name for that repeats lines in each subsequent verse, giving me, at least a sense of opening up, then bringing together, then opening up again.Some of the pieces didn t appeal to me as much as they might to you, and vice versa I won t be buying this, but I do recommend it to English teachers of children age 12 17 or so And I think it would make a great gift from a god or grandparent.Bio notes for both poets and artists included at end.I do wish the size of the original artwork had been mentioned artists do think about the impact the piece will make on those seeing it in person, as opposed to just in a book.I hope I can find the companion, Side by Side New Poems Inspired by Art from Around the World.

    I did not expect to enjoy this book I couldn t get a clear idea of what to expect, and the subtitle, I think, sounded so technical or something But I really enjoyed it The poetry and the artwork work together to give insight into something that might not be straightforward I loved seeing the ideas that the ports brought to the art, especially in the Stories section.

    Heart to Heart New Poems Inspired by Twentieth Century American Art is appropriate for students in grades 6 and up It received a Printz Honor Award for Excellence in Young Adult Literature in 2002 In Heart to Heart, poets and artists are involved in silent, meditative and creative conversation The artwork speaks to the poet and the poet speaks for or about the artwork in the form of poetry that tells a story either about the art or the poet s life, gives a voice to the object or person depicted, details the poet s impression of the elements of the artwork, or expresses the nature of the art and artist The poetry, like the artwork is varied sculpture, painting, print, silkscreen, collage, quilt, photograph, drawing, and mixed media inspire free verse, diamante, pantoum, concrete, sonnet, rhymed verse, pattern and repetition The reader and viewer experiences what the artist created through the eyes, mind and heart of the poet The poems make readers see the art from a different perspective and as such call attention to details that they might not have noticed otherwise The best part about this book is that the work of art imprints itself on the mind, so that even if readers cannot remember the exact words of the poem, they remember their gut reaction to the text and to the way it helped them imagine, explore, and experience the art My favorite poems were The Peacock , A Word , Martha Graham in Letter to the World , Breaking Away from the Family , Grant Wood American Gothic , Pantoum for These Eyes which could be used to teach pantoum form , Diamante for Chuck which could be used to teach diamante form , On Lichtenstein s Bananas Grapefruit which could be used to teach both end and internal rhyme , Girl Writing , Pas de Trois , Man Ray Stares into the Future of Jazz 1919 , Ladies and Gentlemen, Step Right Up, The Drawer is Open and The World, Starring You This book would be a fantastic introduction to a poetry writing activity where students use artwork to inspire verse I have used art in the classroom as a muse for other types of writing, but never poetry After reading this book, I can t imagine why My students are writing poetry collections right now and next week during check out, I m going to have them choose an art book that contains a piece of artwork they think they could write a poem about I m really excited I wish you guys could see the end result maybe I ll send some via e mail As a side note, if you like this text, Jan Greenberg also edited Side by Side New Poems Inspired by Art from Around the World That s next on my list Happy reading, viewing and writing

    Grade Interest Level 6 12Heart to Heart offers an original way to approach poetry and art with new works by distinguished American poets, specially commissioned for this book by editor Jan Greenberg Prompted by paintings, sculpture, prints, and photographs by American artists working in the 20th century, these poems lend a new meaning to art appreciation and make each page of Heart to Heart an exciting discovery This anthology of original poems inspired by American artwork was a true integration of text and illustration Both poetry and artwork give new meaning and interpretation to each other, and I found myself wishing poetry was a regular accompaniment to pieces of art within museums A lot of thought went into the organization of this anthology, with poetry categorized by those that tell stories, assume the voice of the subject, describes emotions impressions, and describes the techniques of the artist A variety of forms are used, including free verse, haiku, concrete, and narrative, along with elements of rhythm, rhyme, and imagery I would use this anthology with students at the end of a poetry unit as a way for them to identify various forms and elements of poetry within the collection It would also be a terrific accompaniment to a field trip to an art museum Students could select a favorite work of art as inspiration for an original poem.

    Famous and not so famous American artwork accompanied by poems by famous and no so famous American poets Would be great in the classroom with a document camera Consider for Creative Writing, 4 12 At SHS My favorites Stag at Sharkey s oil of two boxers by George Bellows paired with Ringside by Ron Koertge Tar Beach acrylic on canvas bordered with printed, painted, quilted and pieced cloth by Faith Ringgold paired with From Above by Angela Johnson absolutely brilliant both pieces How Mali Lost her Accent acrylic, oil and collage by Pacita Abad paired with Fresh from the Island Angel by David Mura Martha Graham, Letter to the World gelatin silver print by Barbara Morgan paried with Martha Gramahm in Letter to the World by Lyn Lifshin You have so little time, she writes, each instant is so exciting Great for championing being unique and ignoring the taunts of others Six O Clock watercolor by Charles Burchfield paired with The Painting Comes Home by Stephen Corey But here we have home and suppertime, the air on that edge between day and evening, the family gathered as the wall of dark grows hard Brooklyn Bridge Variation on an Old Theme by Joseph Stella paired with River Song by Warren Woessner the painting makes me think of the Zakim Bridge into Boston from the North.

    Heart to Heart is amazing collection of poems inspired by twentieth century American Art The editor of the book Jan Green berg organized the poems around four sections which are stories,voices,impressions and expressions The book includes introduction by Green berg explaining the project how poems are arrange in the book Each poem presented next to a photograph of the artwork The book also contains interesting biographical notes on each of the poets and artist It features famous artist such as Jackson Pollack and George O Keeffe and many I love the idea that images can inspire so many different poems This book is a terrific way to make poetry come alive One of my favorite poems was by carol Boston Wetherferd, tittle the Brown Bomber this poem is about a fighter named Joe, who they called The Brown Bomber The authors were all different and I enjoyed all of their works This book would serve students as a good introduction to famous America artist and contemporary poets for middle and older students.It also would also serve as a good example for students to write their own poem inspired by their favorite piece of art.

    This collection is a great read for people of all ages It features poerty melded with artwork to truly appeal to all different types of creative minds and learners This collection highlights the different physical ways that poems can the laid out It was important to me to find great examples using this, because I think it will appeal to my students to get to do this One of my favorite poems is Fresh from the Island Angel, which is about a child moving somewhere different, but holding on to their roots Many of my students move frequently, so this poem would reverberate well with them Overall, this anthology was visaully stunning and enjoyable to sit down with.

    This certainly isn t the most conventional book of poetry, as it is all new and inspired by certain 20th century works of art which are also included in this book It s not something that everyone would enjoy, but I know I did immensely.I think one of my favorites in this slim volume was The World, Starring You by Naomi Shihab Nye How I long to have been alive to see Broadway in the Roaring Twenties I also remember really enjoying Fresh from the Island Angel by David Mura.I d really recommend this stunning collection of new poetry It s not for everyone, but I hope that you will enjoy it as much as I did.

    I read and used this book when I taught teens about poetry and creative writing one summer We used it to guide our own trip to the Art Museum and writing creatively about that art I subsequently had a piece published from this project, too, inspired by an Edmund Teske photograph Rereading it, I m surprised and pleased how many well known poets are included The art selected is a nice range of styles and the poetry, too, ranges from really restricted form poems to free verse.

    Art poetry combo that was a Printz Honor book Not a bad intro to 20th c art, but I found the poetry to be somewhat forgettable.
