Portraits and Landscapes

Author: Doyle, Phyllis
These poems invite the reader to browse through a kind of picture gallery and respond to portraits as diverse as Anton Chekhov, Anne Frank, and Louisa May Alcott, and to landscapes from Russia to New England.


"This is an exceedingly romantic formal literary poetry, rich as fine loam. Almost we can see what she describes, and her descriptions leech reality from whatever is subjected to her scrutiny and to her pen." - Mandrake Poetry Review

"I find her work of so many poems portraying authors, artists and other historical people unique and refreshing. Those who discover this slender collection of 30 poems will also savor the lovely imagery she sketches in her landscape poems, some of which emanate from her sojourn in Ireland and England. . . . " Jack Barnes in Maine Sunday Telegram
