Edvard Munch and Me, a poetry book by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

My latest poetry book

Description of book

This book of poetry is an experiment which focuses on the life of Edvard Munch, an Expressionist artist who created paintings based on what he saw and felt internally. The author studied the diaries as well as several biographies of Munch. The notes in his diaries weaved a life of love, hate, anxiety and death. In his book of poetry the author has included many quotes he used in an attempt to take on the voice of Munch. Each of the author’s poems written relates to a specific piece of art done by Munch. Many of the poems relate the to Munch’s time just before entering a sanitarium for alcoholism and mental issues. The author feels that he has a better understanding of the complexity of life by having studied the life of Edvard Munch.

My book will soon be available at Amazon.com

Since my blog is not monetized I will be posting a link to purchase the book. Once the paperback is done an e-book will be made available.
