Your Candle Accompanies The Sun by Sophie Herxheimer

June 21st, 2018 | Posted by David in


A wonderful book.
Sarah Bodman, a.n

Herxheimer is a prolific, multi-disciplinary artist whose poetry if fiercely energetic, erudite and punchy. Her work combines a lush, apparently boundless artistic style with a gentleness and generosity.
Bidisha, BBC Arts Online

The sumptuous language and narrative angles make the world of Herxheimer’s poems sparkle

Artist and poet Sophie Herxheimer re-imagines Emily Dickinson’s self-imposed seclusion as an act of empowerment. In a series of collage poems, Sophie’s words and images re-present a paradoxical poet, fixed in space, yet ranging freely in imagination and innovation.

This is a homage to the human spirit, which can shine light into the world and in its complexity accompany the simple power of the Sun. Sophie’s collages are preceded by a selection of Emily’s poems. This unique binding interweaves two pamphlets, and talents, into one volume of dazzling poetry.
