Reading is seeing seeing writing

Images and Poetry

by David Kelley

A brilliant integration of picture and verse by Britain's foremost Baudelairean scholar.
Lire cest voir/Reading is seeing is a marvellous contemporary example of the dialogue between painting and poetry.  The images are wonderfully constructed and the poetry, in both French and English, is a delight.  The two together magically combine to give a special insight into the mind of the artist and the writer.
David Kelley (1941-1999) taught art history at Warwick University and  at Trinity College, Cambridge where he was a Fellow in French Literature.  He has written extensively on French poetry and, in 1994, was made an Officer des Arts et des Lettres for his services to French culture.
