Poet Hadara Bar-Nadav views art as a collaboration and a conversation, whether it be with readers, paintings, architecture, music, or sculpture. She refers to many works of art in her 2012 collection The Frame Called Ruinwhich was the Editors Selection for the Green Rose Prize from New Issues Press. In her 2013 collection, Lullaby (with Exit Sign), winner of the Saturnalia Books Poetry Prize, she converses with Emily Dickinson, who helped her recover from the grief of losing her father and return to writing her own poetry. Bar-Nadav also discusses her first collection of poetry, A Glass of Milk to Kiss Goodnightwhich reflects on the Holocaust and the effects it had on her family history. A 2018 interview with Hadara Bar-Nadav is also available in our Audio Archives.
