Self Portrait by Elisabeth Horan
Inspired by Frida Kahlo
Published by Cephalo Press September 30th 2019
I paint self-portraits because I am so often alone,
because I am the person I know best. – Frida Kahlo
About the book: This book of poetry explores the life and work of Frida Kahlo, suffusing the intensity of her life into a dual-language collection. In her love of language and Frida, emerging poet Elisabeth Horan offers a beautiful meditation on art and that which inspires it. Her connection to Frida is drawn out through the vivid poems and imagery, embedding the personal into a life-story that has become well-known. Horan’s collection illuminates a new approach to Kahlo’s life in its emphasis on shared experience and poetic tribute.
