Creation Date



Excerpt from "The Storm's Eye," a verse narrative of Cassius Marcellus Clay by Joy Bale Boone, Kentucky Poet Laureate 1997-1999. "How often it is through and not despite men's faults we sympathize and love them more. Perhaps no man can suffer a dual cause, or carry two torches in the night." Printed by Larkspur Press, copy 74/200. Encapsulated on the back of the print is a small card (6 1/3" x 5") providing a brief biography of Joy Bale Boone and a notice that proceeds from the sale of this print supported the creation and display of a Robert Penn Warren bust in the Kentucky State Capitol. It also explains that this was a project of the Poet Laureate Committee of the Kentucky Arts Council.
