You Will Remember Me: Ekphrastic Poems by Barbara Lydecker Crane
Word Galaxy Press, October 2023
In You Will Remember Me, Barbara Lydecker Crane’s masterful sonnets illuminate the work and lives of artists from medieval through contemporary times. We visit a lustful duke of Milan in “His Last Mistress,” Van Gogh and a French asylum in “My Present,” Munch’s health battle in “After Influenza,” Sherald on her Blackness in “Tell Me What You Think,” or the first Native Harvard graduate in “Imagining Caleb.” Often accompanied by full-color reproductions of the art that inspired them, these vivid ekphrases immerse in a synergistic experience of sight, language, and meaning that’s both entertaining and enlightening.
