Excerpts from the Paper

The beginning:
The very Rich Collaboration between Leon Rooke and Tony Calzetta
The following paper looks at the rich collaboration between Leon
Rooke
and Tony
Calzetta
as described by Robert
Enright
.
Enright
correctly notes that both men –
Rooke
the writer;
Calzetta
the illustrator – have very strange and unconventional imaginations; he further argues that
Rooke
takes the typical
Calzetta
drawing and layers all sorts of odd and spectacular meanings onto these illustrations in the process of crafting unusual and unmistakable works that may leave a reader confused but rarely unimpressed. The two men thus have a collaboration or partnership that accentuates the weird imagination of the other – but there is undeniably a syncretistic effect being created...
The end:
.....epicts society’s indifference to the artist; this is an elegantly simple synopsis of what
Rooke
is trying to convey and it is appropriate that
Enright
makes it a little easier to cut through the tangled verbiage and imagery of the work to get to its essential meaning (
Enright
, page 2 of upload). Nonetheless, the theatricality of both men is accentuated through their willingness to collaborate in fruitful ways (please see
Enright
, page 3 of upload).
In the end, the collaboration is beneficial because these two men bring out the best in one another and heighten the capabilities of each other.
