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.
