Literature Reimagined:
An Exhibition of Illustrated Texts

February 10, 2004 - June 18, 2004
curated by Iris R. Snyder

 

Some works of literature transcend their times and continue to speak to readers. The plays of Shakespeare, the poetry of Emily Dickinson, the stories of Edgar Allan Poe still captivate generation after generation. Artists, printers, and publishers also continue to be inspired by these icons of literature and continue to present them in new and innovative ways. "Literature Reimagined" offers multiple editions of popular literary works, focusing on the ways in which they have been reinterpreted over time. These books have been transformed by artists, writers, and publishers to conform to their personal visions and the work's perceived audience.
