Americana Selections - "WALLACE STEVENS: OH FLORIDA"
Susan Loy of Literary Calligraphy in Moneta, VA, joins text from literary classics or Biblical passages with delicate watercolor images and creates a unique bond between fine art and literature.
American poet Wallace Stevensí 1922 romantic Florida poetic vision perfectly caresses and surrounds a stylized magenta bougainvillaea bloom amid motifs suggested by Key West porches and tiles in tropical pastel corals and sea greens.
"Swiftly in the nights, In the porches of Key West, Behind the bougainvilleas, After the guitar is asleep, Lasciviously as the wind, You come..."
Stevens is considered one of the most important American poets of the twentieth century. He won the National Book Award in 1950 and the Pulitzer Prize in 1955.
He spent many winters in Florida and called Key West, "...the sweetest nothing contrived," and a "summer without end."
