The World in a Frame presents forty-six poems by Emily Dickinson and twenty-four drawings by Will Barnet. Barnet's respect and love for Dickinson's poetry sing from the drawings reproduced in this book. From his portraits of the artist ("To pity those that know her not / Is helped by the regret / That those who know her, know her less / The nearer her they get") to his drawing of a cricket on a blade of grass ("But witness for her land, / And witness for her sea, / The cricket is her utmost / Of elegy to me") to his picture of a tree full of crows ("The saddest noise, the sweetest noise, /The maddest noise that grows, -- /The birds, they make it in the spring, / At night's delicious close"), Barnet captures the essence of the poet's work.
