Reviews


"What is often called 'inspiration' in art is, more accurately, obsession: it is what gives life to language, as Jessica Jacobs' obsession with the artist Georgia O'Keeffe makes these pages breathe and O'Keeffe a living voice and presence. Interwoven with these sharply incised, vibrant, and painstakingly researched poems are lyric prose accounts of the author's own time alone in the desert, drawing these poems and a deepened awareness out of this accompanied solitude."--Eleanor Wilner, Reversing the Spell: New and Selected Poems

"In her eloquent poems, Jessica Jacobs artfully intertwines her own voice with Georgia O'Keeffe's words in this poet's exploration of the painter's sensitivity, aesthetics, character, and courage."--Laurie Lisle, Portrait of an Artist: A Biography of Georgia O'Keeffe
