Timeless faces and faceless clocks: Mortal memory and eternity's countenance in the work of Emily Dickinson, Catherine Piozzi, and Eduardo Rosso

Title:
Timeless faces and faceless clocks: Mortal memory and eternity's countenance in the work of Emily Dickinson, Catherine Piozzi, and Eduardo Rosso
Authors:
Harrison, DeSales
Abstract:
The article examines the works of poets Emily Dickinson and Catherine Pozzi and sculptor Medardo Rosso. Dickinson's poems gave reason to assume that she was no less sensible to the depth of her genius than any of her contemporaries. Unlike Dickinson, who wrote many poems, Pozzi wrote little poetry, and her published oeuvre, constituted all of her surviving output. Rosso sought to empower sculpture with a more expressive and kinetic surface.
