Expanding his classic work on Edward Hopper to include more paintings, Mark Strand helps us to see Hopper’s art in new and exciting ways.


“Mark Strand once again shows that he has, to a degree that would make any art critic nervous, the not unrelated gifts of looking and seeing. He looks more deeply into Hopper’s pictures than anyone else has before.... This is surely the most attentive book that has ever been written about Hopper.”—Adam Gopnik

“Strand takes the poet’s entrance into the silent world of Hopper with a gift of words that allows painter and poet to become partners in opening the windows of the imagination.”—Wayne Theibaud

“Of the many pieces of writing stimulated by Hopper, none is more coolly and eerily attentive (more Hopperesque, we could say) than Mark Strand’s brilliant small book showing how we are moved and disquieted by formal elements in the paintings.”—John Updike, New York Review of Books
