Link to full piece.

Kathleen Gunton is “a poet/photographer who believes one art feeds another.” A cento is a poem made up of passages taken from another author. Other centos by Gunton have appeared in Rhino, West Trestle Review, and elsewhere.

Cynthia Macdonald (1928−2015) was an American poet, psychoanalyst and educator. The passages in Gunton’s cento come from Macdonald’s book Living Wills.

Tomas Tranströmer (1931−2015) was a Swedish poet, translator and psychologist. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2011. The passages in Gunton’s cento come from his collection The Great Enigma.
