Praise for Edythe Haendel Schwartz’s Work

Edythe Haendel Schwartz is a poet with a painterly eye. She has taken glad instruction from the many visual artists her poems evoke, and she understands perspective, detail, and the correspondence between color and emotion. In an era of the series and the serial, the poems in A Palette of Leaves are refreshingly discrete. Schwartz’s palette is full, her subject nothing less than life. If her hues are often dark it is because she understands the place of pain in “the dazzle of an ordinary day,” the fact that the dead leaf and the green share the same spectrum. There is a resilience in these poems that gives me hope

Edythe Haendel Schwartz’s poems portray a multitude of subjects with deft brushstrokes. A Palette of Leaves quilts together family and friends, travel and study, artists and scientists, from pre-war New York to South American rafting trips, always with an eye (and an ear) for the dissonance of human suffering. With precise colors, tight lines, and a fierce focus, Edythe’s poems get inside her characters, so the reader gains many perspectives at once: painter, model, and poet become one.

Alice Neel Paints Futility of Effort

Oil on canvas, 1930

I’ve drawn the small figure in meager space,
in lost light, colorless, her face
twisted, her head caught
between the bed posts.

I read about it in the paper—
her mother was in the kitchen
ironing. I’ve drawn a hanging
line, a fragile vertical
to slice the canvas, the girl
strangled by chance

the way my daughter was.
Diptheria took her,
the white threads webbing her
throat, choking off air. No care
could cut the fever, care no weapon
against the viscous membrane. A brush

of fate so fast and dark, lamp black, ochre
and in a corner hovering, one eye
a paralyzing stare, no eye
to see, and where her
mouth would be, no breath
to draw.
