    One thought on “What the Water Gave Me”

    1. From Pain to Paint to Poetry: Pascale PetitI looked forward to Pascale Petit's launch of her new collection 'What the Water Gave Me' so much that I thought I may be disappointed, but in fact it was even more stunning than expected. There was standing room only in the unusual venue - a basement in the converted Horse Hospital near Russell Square.Audience members were shoulder-to-shoulder, leaning close to hear each other in an excited buzz of conversation before and after the performance, but whe [...]

    2. Pascale Petit Responds to Frida KahloBeginning with the stunning cover of one of Mexican Painter Krida Kahlo's compelling works - a painting titled 'What the Water Gave Me' - through the pages of poems in response to the life and art of Frida Kahlo, this book is a little master piece. Poet Pascale Petit was born in Paris and grew up in France and Wales. She trained as a sculptor at the Royal College of Art and was a visual artist for the first part of her life. She has traveled widely, particula [...]

    3. Poems after Frida KahloFrida Kahlo is well known as a surrealistic “folk artist,” and her Mexican heritage is evident in her works. She’s also known for her stormy marriage to fellow artist Diego Rivero. However, very little is known about her personal life beyond those details and a rather infamous unibrow. When I received the poetry collection What the Water Gave Me by Pascale Petit, I was fascinated by what the poet achieved: a biography of Kahlo through verse. The combination of histor [...]

    4. The fifty-two poems in this collection are in the voice of the painter Frida Kahlo and trace her life, work and death using images from her art and images which reflect her art. The poetry is fierce, powerful and frequently very moving as Petit uses colourful, surreal and mythic images to explore Kahlo's use of trauma and pain in her painting, both re-living and transcending it at the same time. These are poems I want to read again and again because of the complexity and vividness of the images, [...]

    5. This is an amazing collection, one of the strongest I've read in years. I think it helps to know a little about Kahlo. Even though the poems by-and-large stand on their own, with a little context they reach greater depths (or greater heights?).I travel a great deal and always are a book with me. This collection has been on more trips than any other.

    6. This is a fantastic collection. So beautifully connected to one of my favorite artists but also wonderful in its own merit.

    7. I'm so bedazzled by concept and this performance. Petit opens up the world of Frida Kahlo, and really helped me to understand the artist and the artwork. The poems don't stand as well alone as they do with the art, but I feel more in tune with the world. :D

    8. Loved this! I thought it gave real insight into the life of Frida Kahlo as well as being powerful poems n their own right.

    9. This is one of those poetry collections that I keep coming back to. I am not always a fan of poetry about art, or poems written from the artist's perspective - but Petit carries it off brilliantly. The work has the same fresh and urgent vibrancy as Kahlo's paintings. Inspiring.
