Ley Lines, Paperback / softback Book

Ley Lines Paperback / softback

Edited by H. L. Hix


Ley lines mark alignments of sacred sites such as ridgetops and ancient megaliths and create pathways between them.

This book too marks alignments and creates pathways, but its sacred sites are not monuments, they're artworks and poems.

Its various forms of exchange between writers and artists offer unique access to contemporary art, poetry, and the creative process.

In this unique anthology, working poets respond to questions about their recent books, painters and other artists offer statements about their work, and writers respond to artworks.

These offerings and exchanges are juxtaposed so as to speak to one another in a capacious, resonant dialogue.

The result is a broad-minded and inclusive poetics, a vision of creative work as a constituent of personal and civic life.

Anyone who nurtures the creative impulse will enjoy Ley Lines and return to it again and again.

Writing students, art students, and any reader engaged in artistic practice will find in Ley Lines not a how-to manual or step-by-step instruction but an inexhaustible vein of instructive reflection on imaginative work and the creative life.
