Mark Strand, Collages (2011-2014) – Arthur Solway – Poetry – 6/9/17

“…And while Mark didn’t much care to acknowledge any connection between the collages and his poems, as [Francine] Prose also points out, ‘It is clear that they are made by the same person—elegant, seemingly effortless, employing an economy of means in which to create something astonishingly beautiful and intimate.’”
