The Poetry of Freddie Davis Noti and Naomi Davis Blackwell
by Freddie Davis Noti and Naomi Davis Blackwell
RoseDog Books (April 27, 2015)
Sisters Freddie Davis Noti and Naomi Davis Blackwell were avid readers of the classics. Naomi was a devoted lover of Charlotte Brontë, especially the celebrated novel Jane Eyre. In her adult years she began composing her long narrative poem The Rime of Jane and Mr. Rochester. She spent several years writing and perfecting it and ended with an emotionally rewarding work of beauty.
After the death of Naomi in 2005, Freddie was inspired to write two short odes and a longer poem about her.
Freddie wanted both her poems and Naomi’s The Rime of Jane and Mr. Rochester published for other lovers
of classic poetry to enjoy.
