Summary

Summary

A collection of traditional Christmas verse is brought to new life by illustrations carefully selected from the Metropolitan Museum of Art's vast collection. From a medieval stained glass window to Arthur Rackham's familiar watercolors to Romare Bearden's collage, these artworks bring new meaning to classic Christmas readings by Walter de la Mare, Eleanor Farjeon, Langston Hughes, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, e.e. cummings, Edgar Allen Poe, and - of course - Clement C. Moore. A family classic, this volume will be treasured year after year.

Publisher's Weekly Review

Images from New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art share space with holiday poems in 'Twas the Night Before Christmas and Other Seasonal Favorites, ed. by Edward Lach. Illustrations range from 15th-century German stained glass to Arthur Rackham works, while the verse takes in not just Clement C. Moore but Ogden Nash, Joseph Brodsky, classic carols and more.
