Today's leading poets and writers--from Anne Carson to Roxane Gay--respond to modern and contemporary masterpieces

In this book, 26 internationally renowned poets, writers and essayists such as Anne Carson, Richard Ford, Roxane Gay, Colm To b n, Eileen Myles, Sj n, Gunnhild yehaug, Anne Waldman and Claudia Rankine engage in dialogue with artworks from the collection of the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art by artists as different as Louise Bourgeois, Francis Bacon, Alberto Giacometti, Alicja Kwade, Andy Warhol, Julie Mehretu, Joseph Beuys, Tacita Dean, Yayoi Kusama and Francesca Woodman.

The writers deploy their poetic gaze in texts that open our eyes to the works. By way of a wide range of literary genres such as poems, essays, memoir and notes, the contributions to the book demonstrate how differently one can experience art.
