Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Poet-painter Elise Asher takes her title from the question asked by William Wordsworth in his Ode on the Intimations of Immortality: "Whither is fled the visionary gleam?" In this opulent work of exploration and discovery she juxtaposes 47 color plates of her lumimous paintings with their sources or parallels in the poems of the great tradition. The poets who hunt her imagination and whose lines she inscribes on pages facing the paintings range from Shakespeare, Vaughan, Milton, Blake, and Keats to Hopkins, Yeats, Eliot, Roethke, and Kunitz. These are poems and paintings that communicate the everlasting mystery of the human experience and that reinforce each other in the search for transcendence. The Visionary Gleam is further enriched by the inclusion of passages from the free-flowing narrative of a transcontinental journey, a distillation of memory and fancy, that is also a journey in time.

Inhaltsangabe: The poet Elise Asher's life in art is extraordinary. Well known as a painter, there is no American painter who is as good a poet and no American poet who is as good a painter as Elise Asher. Night Train contains all the poetry that she wants to preserve, the truth of her life found in language, a life lived in two arts: her poetry kept until now almost in hiding, her other art -- public.
The poetry in Night Train leads us through a private world, sometimes our own, to beauty discovered, to basic truth, to places arrived at, it seems at all hours, in the middle of the night. We do not know how we got there because the night has been long and Elise Asher was awake when we were sleeping. In the bottom of the night we are startled by her artistry.
