Nonfiction. "In a series of beautifully crafted, stimulating essays, Piombino reveals how psychoanalysis, science and art meet and catalyze each other in the creative process. He is an artist-scientist who astonishes and delights with his grace and profundity in daring to explore and elucidate the creative process in his poetry with spontaneity, logic, psychoanalytic skill and intuition. He is therapeutic. This is an awesome piece of work, extraordinarily original. It is captivating in language that sings and invites us to join in" - Alexander Wolf, M.D., training psychoanalyst and supervisor, Postgraduate Center for Mental Health, New York.
Nick Piombino (born October 5, 1942) is an American poet, essayist, artist and psychotherapist. Although he has been associated with poets from both the New York School of the 1960s and the Language Poets of the 1970s, Piombino's work is not easily classified, straddling not only poetic movements but the line between poetry and prose, verbal and visual, in challenging ways. His work across several genres is held together by the nature of time and duration. Piombino regularly collaborates with his wife, artist Toni Simon.Author City: Brooklyn, NY USA
