A collaboration born of a shared love of music, photography, poetry, and Indiana, this book celebrates the history, literature, and art that informs the present and shapes our identity. Richard Fields's black and white and sepia photos are evocative imaginings of Norbert Krapf's poems, visual metaphors that extend and deepen their vision. Krapf's poems pay tribute to poets from Homer and Virgil to Walt Whiman, Emily Dickinson, and Wendell Berry, and to singer-songwriters such as Woody Guthrie and John Lennon, and they explore the poet's German heritage, question ethnic prejudice and social conflict, and praise the natural world. The book includes a cycle of 15 poems about Bob Dylan, a public poem written in response to 9/11, "Prayer to Walt Whitman at Ground Zero, a poem in a stained-glass panel at the new Indianapolis Airport, "Back Home," and "Questions on a Wall," ruminations on the anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.
