Dog

By (author): Catherine Owen, Joe Rosenblatt

Photographs by: Karen Moe

Guardian of the gates of hell, brightest star in the night sky, the dog is the saucy, swaggering, world-weary trickster whose indomitable spirit has been mythologized for millennia. In Dog, poets Catherine Owen and Joe Rosenblatt have written a volume of solo and conjoined sonnets about dogs of the cosmos, the underworld and the psyche. Orbiting around the striking canine images of photographer Karen Moe’s Perros: Dogs of Central Havana, Owen and Rosenblatt wisely and wittily follow the scent of mankind’s oldest friend, sniffing out the traces of the dog in all of us.
