A Bargain with the Light:

Poems after Lee Miller

by Jacqueline Saphra

A Bargain with the Light is a tribute to one of the most extraordinary figures of the 20th century. At its heart is a heroic crown of sonnets, accompanied by an introduction by the art historian Patricia Allmer, an essay by Jacqueline Saphra charting her journey through Miller's story to the writing of the poems, and iconic photographs by and of Miller, courtesy of the Lee Miller Archives.
