O'Keeffe

Days in a Life
By C. S. Merrill

Details

Overview

“Carol Merrill’s tribute to Georgia O’Keeffe is poems in the shape of finely rendered sketches, some of them even paintings. These intimate images convey the delicate and tough shape of O’Keeffe’s final years in New Mexico.”—Joy Harjo, author of She Had Some Horses

“When I got O’Keeffe mss I sat down after midnite at kitchen table when I should’ve been in bed & read it thru in an hour because it was interesting, curious, distinctive, focused, condensed, epiphanous, ordinary & understandable. The details are all, sacramentalizing everyday life in a world of genius—a woman, vast space, chewy intelligence, almost selfless observation.”—Allen Ginsberg, author of Howl
