Scope and Contents This volume, edited and with an introduction by Lorin Cuoco, accompanied the catalogue for "The Dual Muse: The Writer as Artist-the Artist as Writer" exhibition at the Washington University Gallery of Art. Cuoco writes in the introduction as follows. "We were greatly inspired by the Ruth and Marvin Sackner Archive of Concrete and Visual Poetry in Miami, Florida, where William Gass first saw the work of Tom Phillips, and where the collaborators went to observe for themselves the great treasures of this collecting couple. As a consequence of this visit, Kevin Ray, the head of special collections of Washington University's Olin Library, decided to devote an entire exhibit to Tom Phillips' work on the translation and illustration of Dante's Inferno...We extend our thanks to the lenders of the exhibition and to the museums and galleries that provided the permission and reproductions for this volume. The greatest debt, though, is to Ruth and Marvin Sackner for their constant generosity...
