[ Bed Hangings ]

Granary Press published Bed Hangings - text of the poems in The Midnight along with illustrations around the poems by Susan Bee. "In Bed Hangings, poet Susan Howe and artist Susan Bee collaborate for the first time. This series of poems explores the themes of colonial America and its decorative arts, religion and Puritanism through a visual and verbal investigation of the metaphysics of beds, curtains, and hangings. The poems and pictures play off each other in a humorous, mystical and occasionally mischievous manner." Click here for more. And here is a short review by Marjorie Perloff.
