Poetry for a Midsummer's Night by internationally renowned poet Marvin Bell is a handsome hard cover volume of poetry written in the spirit of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. The poems, with a contemporary twist of words only Bell could craft, reflect the mix of courtly lovers, enchanted forest, magical transformations and humor that makes the play one of the most beloved of Shakespeare's works. Eight four-color paintings of midsummer night skies accompany the poems, not as illustrations but as visual poetry on the same theme. The oil paintings by noted artist Mary Powell, commissioned specifically for this volume, set the stage for a magical night in the forest, an evening with friends, or a moment with a lover.
