Heather Treseler’s (English) essay, “Dreaming in Color,” appears this month in Elizabeth Bishop in the Twenty-First Century: Reading the New Editions, an edited collection with the University of Virginia Press.
In this essay, Treseler presents a set of letter-poems that she found in Bishop’s archive in which the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet, who was born in Worcester, addresses her psychoanalyst and the ghost of her late mother. Treseler shows how these previously unpublished poems lend new meaning to Bishop’s famous poem, “One Art,” and how the practice of letter-writing shaped Bishop’s poetic process.
Treseler also has won a three-week fellowship to the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, a nationally competitive residency for writers, composers, and visual artists. During the fellowship, Treseler will work on a collection of poems.
