Description

To a Nightingale traces the presence of this richly interpreted muse through the words of Ovid, Hafiz, Shakespeare, Milton, Shelley, Keats, T.S. Eliot, W.S. Merwin and many more. The collection reveals a time-honored, poetic discussion of beauty, grief, solitude, and artistic expression--a discussion that so inspired some of the world's great poets.
