“Poems to See By: A Comic Artist Interprets Great Poetry” by Julian Peters

Release Date: March 31st, 2020

Thank you NetGalley, Plough Publishing House, and Julian Peters for allowing me to read this ARC in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion.

“Poems to See By: A Comic Artist Interprets Great Poetry” takes 24 classic poems written by well-known authors and turns them into a powerful visual interpretation. I truly loved the illustrations and they made me appreciate the meaning of each poem. It’s not every day that we get the chance to experience something so unique and special. Julian Peters did a wonderful job bringing every poem to life. He gave each reader an opportunity to revisit classical works with themes that can be applied to our everyday lives.

Without giving any spoilers, I would say that my favorite illustration was the one accompanying the poem by Emily Dickinson. I truly felt all the emotions and my imagination was left wondering.

This is a fantastic book and I recommend it to anyone who loves poetry or who wants to experience poetry from the point of view of a visual learner.
