Synopses & Reviews
The Highwayman is the second book in a unique series -- Visions in Poetry -- featuring classic poems illustrated by outstanding contemporary artists. Originally published in 1907, The Highwayman is a haunting ballad of doomed love. Seldom have mood and character been so memorably evoked in such a short poem. The pounding rhythem of the rhyme, the dramatic pacing and the power of the images have made it one of the favorite read-alouds of all time. Murray Kimber's stunning noir interpretation is a darkly brilliant achievement that stays true to the poem's tragic spirit.
The second book in the Visions in Poetry series explores a haunted ballad of doomed love with dramatic new illustrations.
