Portraits from Life: A Poet’s Mentors

Portraits from LifeIn this revelatory book, poet George Franklin describes his encounters with illustrious figures in the arts who taught, mentored, or inspired him, and provides extended commentaries on some of their most characteristic creations. Equal parts memoir and critical study, it illuminates the lives and works of artists he came to admire and in some cases to revere, in the process tracing the ways they informed his own sense of vocation as a writer.

Anyone interested in the arts, either as practitioner or as enthusiast, will find here much to delight, intrigue, and inspire.
