Books by Margaretta K. Mitchell

The Face of Poetry, University of California Press 2004

"...Margaretta Mitchell's photographs give faces to, make a serial portrait of, the social facts, and give us also a series of portraits of individual artists to set against the poems, where at best an interesting space might grow up between the poems and the faces looking out from the photographs, in the conversation between the two art forms."—Robert Haas
