This limited edition work features a collection of poetry by W. D. Snodgrass, an American poet who studied under Robert Lowell. Snodgrass's first book of poetry and his best known work 'Heart's Needle' won the Pulitzer Prize in poetry and is considered to be one of the founders of the 'confessional' poetry movement, inspiring the works of noted poets such as Sylvia Plath. This collection of poetry includes 'To Shape a Song', 'W. D Sees Himself Animated' and 'W. D. Studied the subject of departure'. The poems contain themes of freedom and expressiveness which pairs beautifully with McGraw's expressive artwork, with this being one of a few collaborations with the artist.
