Artist and poet Gwen Frostic lived her entire life (1906-2001) in the state of Michigan and devoted her life and art to this unique state. Throughout her remarkable lifetime, Frostic studied Michigan’s abundant flora and fauna and captured its diversity in hand-carved block prints and in her nature-inspired free verse. This work focuses on the life of Gwen Frostic and includes an analysis of her verse, followed by translations into Greek of three of Frostic’s best-loved volumes: "My Michigan", "A Walk With Me" and "To Those Who See". "My Michigan" is her first work, an homage to her beloved state. Enthusiastic response to this work convinced Frostic that she had a poetic audience. "A Walk With Me" is her hymn to nature, a lyrical work that allows readers access to Frostics majestic natural world in Michigan’s fields and woodlands. "To Those Who See" is dedicated to all who find pleasure in nature and listen to its wisdom.
