PROMESSE DU BONHEUR. Michael Fried. David Zwirner, New York, 2016. Distributed by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. 152 pp. with 33 ills. 22 x 17 cm. ISBN 9781941701430 In English.
Publisher's description: Michael Fried (born 1939) is as much a poet as he is a critic. His experiences among artworks and art-world luminaries have resulted in a canonized body of criticism, but they have also provided the raw material for many of the poems in his newest collection, Promesse du Bonheur. Fried's passion, lyricism and humor -- lauded by authors such as Allen Grossman and J.M. Coetzee -- are on display as he explores great minds and great works of art that have moved him. Along the way, Fried reveals himself to the reader: he is at once a student, unsure of himself, a young man, ambitious and in love, a committed champion of artists and a poet, transmuting the world around him. The book combines the 80 poems, a mix of lyric and prose poems, with 33 photographs -- most of them made, all of them chosen by renowned American photographer James Welling.
