Listening to Pictures A Review of Peter Steele’s The Whispering Gallery: Art into Poetry ; Melbourne, Macmillan, 2006, 128 pp., ISBN: 1876832851, hb [Book Review]
Sophia 46 (2):193-198 (2007)
AbstractA review of Peter Steele’s: The Whispering Gallery: Art into Poetry, in which Steele writes poems on and to paintings and the sculpture Black Sun in the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, Australia. Each work on which there is a poem is reproduced. In this book Steele writes more to the ‘contour’ of the topic-work than he did in Plenty. His poems – as ever sidenoted – are tensed between the topicality of the work of art in question, and Kant’s aesthetic which involves ‘the free play of the cognitive faculties’. In ths tension lies the particular pleasure of Steele’s poetry.
