"I am 3/4ths Canadian, and one 4th New Englander - I had ancestors on both sides in the Revolutionary war." - Elizabeth Bishop

Two Arts – EBSNS Virtual Exhibit 2020 – Part 5


If her grandparents’ home was the heart of Bishop’s childhood, Great Village was the body of her experience – the heart and body helping to create her vivid and precocious mind and imagination. If the house was associated with her grandmother, the village was her grandfather’s preserve. Bishop loved driving around the village on the horse and wagon with her “Pa,” who taught her about courtesy, consideration, common sense and caring. She learned “Manners” from him. I've lost count of the number of walking tours of the village I gave to Bishop fans from all over the world.
