In "Love's Exquisite Freedom," Burne-Jones' contention that art reveals a "a light better than any light that ever shone" is tempered by Angelou's naturalism and earnestness. The combination is an enchanting, powerful exploration of the redemptive quality of love and the unbidden pleasure of emotion. Works featured in the book are exhibited in the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Harvard Art Museum, among others.
"Readers expect superlative performances from celebrated writers and artists when they present new works to the public. The most recent publication in Welcome Books' Art & Poetry series, Love's Exquisite Freedom, a love poem by Maya Angelou paired with artwor by Pre-Raphaelite artist Edward Burne-Jones, exceeds those high expectations. It is a treasure, a feast for eye and ear...Love's Exquisite Freedom is a glorious book, one destined to lift readers' spirits each time they revisit it."
