The Poetry of Edward Hopper
April 30, 2010 | Scandinavia House | New York City
With Ernest Farrés and Edward Hirsch; moderated by Gail Levin
Co-sponsored by The American-Scandinavian Foundation and Institut Ramon Llull
The great American painter of solitude comes back to us brilliantly illuminated and transformed by the Catalan poet Ernest Farrés, whose recent Edward Hopper is a collection of poems based on Hopper’s paintings. New York poet Edward Hirsch, who has also written about Hopper, joins Farrés for a conversation about the power of Hopper’s imagery to invoke poetry.
