The World in a Frame presents forty-six poems by Emily Dickinson and twenty-four drawings by Will Barnet. Barnet's respect and love for Dickinson's poetry sing from the drawings reproduced in this book. From his portraits of the artist ( To pity those that know her not / Is helped by the regret / That those who know her, know her less / The nearer her they get ) to his drawing of a cricket on a blade of grass ( But witness for her land, / And witness for her sea, / The cricket is her utmost / Of elegy to me ) to his picture of a tree full of crows ( The saddest noise, the sweetest noise, /The maddest noise that grows, -- /The birds, they make it in the spring, / At night's delicious close ), Barnet captures the essence of the poet's work.
