A companion volume to Art & Love presents poems that touch upon the magnificence of the world's wild places and includes works from the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Kate Farrell grew up in North Carolina. After the death of her first husband, she moved with her two small children to New York to complete a literature degree at Columbia University. There she studied with the poet Kenneth Koch who would become a frequent literary collaborator. Of her seven books, two were co-authored by Koch: Sleeping on the Wing; An Anthology of Modern Poetry with Essays on Reading and Writing (a volume widely used in high school and college classrooms) and Talking to the Sun: An Illustrated Anthology of Poetry for Young People. Four other anthologies match poetry from around the world with art works from the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the National Gallery.
Farrell has taught writing at Columbia University, in the NY State Poets in the Schools Program and at the New York Art Theater Institute, where she acted for a decade. Her poems have appeared in Poetry, The Manhattan Review, Partisan Review, Mississippi Review, Hudson Review, Harvard Review, Image and other journals. Her work was chosen for three editions of Best Spiritual Writing and a recent poem was nominated for a Pushcart Prize.
