Lines From Neuchatel

Fine poetry and art improve with age. In celebration and in evidence of this, the University of Tampa Press presents this new edition of a treasured collection by Peter Meinke, first Poet Laureate of the City of St. Petersburg, Florida: the thirty-fifth anniversary edition of his internationally acclaimed and long out-of-print classic, Lines from Neuchâtel, featuring drawings by Jeanne Meinke.

With a dozen additional drawings by Jeanne, a new essay and six added poems by Peter, and a production that presents the text and art in a handsome special edition, Lines from Neuchâtel has been enriched in the fullness of time. First designed and printed by St. Petersburgs Konglomerati Press in 1974, Lines from Neuchâtel brought Peter and Jeannes poems and drawings together in a memorable and groundbreaking volume. Shortly afterward, Peter would publish his first book in the Pitt Poetry Series and begin a publishing history marked by major awards and readings around the globe. Jeannes drawings would begin to appear in The New Yorker and Gourmet magazine as well as in national literary journals and books.Lines from Neuchâtel holds a special place in the work and experience of two of Florida’s most admired artists.
