Winner of the 2023 Josephine Miles Award for Excellence

Perennial Earth: Poetry by Wallace Stevens and Paintings by Alexis Serio, published by New Perennials Publishing, 2022, pairs over thirty of Wallace Stevens’s poems with an equal number of my landscape paintings. Both Stevens and I use the beauty of planet Earth as the setting for meaningful human reflection and feeling.

In his introduction, Glen MacLeod writes, “The aim of these visual-verbal juxtapositions is to enhance the reader’s appreciation of these two artists who, though working in different mediums, both base their art on the inexhaustible correspondences between the outer world of nature and the inner world of human experience.”

Here’s what readers are saying:
“The book is a feast for the eyes and the mind.”—Suzanne Pundt

“An absolutely stunning book . . . a source peace and beauty.”—Judy Wilkins

“Perennial Earth is an intellectual and emotional masterpiece that will not disappoint.”–Michael Escoubas, review in Quill and Parchment
