I've started delving into Picasso's painting "Guernica" as I suspect there's something in its about-ness that will invigorate my poetry.  And so happy to receive another Guernica title from a friend, Mari, who sent us four books as thanks for planning our recent trip to Spain.  I'll happily delve into all of these!

The above four books nearly encapsulate our recent Spanish experience ... a Spanish wine book would complete it.


  1. I can't wait to see what bubbles up out of this research!

  2. Yes, there is so MUCH in Picasso's ... language!

  3. I'm excited, too, about this new project of yours Eileen. I've read that T.J. Clark book on Guernica and it's brilliant.

  4. Oh, glad to hear your recommendation, Tom. Tom and Others: If there are other books out there I should read re Picasso's GUERNICA, am happy to receive the advice!
