Praise for A Path with No Name: A Collection of Poetry and Paintings by Mali Mann
Impressive in the range of their subjects,forms,and moods,Mann’s poems leave a lasting mark on the readers’ senses!
Salman Akhtar , author of Blood and Ink
Mali Mann takes the measure of life and finds it in the earth, in mountains, in dreams, in nature, in culture and brings it back to us transformed and transforming. Her method of using paintings in conjunction with poetry is in the tradition of ekphrasis as in Keats’s “Ode to a Grecian Urn” and Shelley’s “On the Medusa of Leonardo DaVinci in the Florentine Gallery.” The combination produces a kind of power to express emotion that neither has alone. Reader, read it. Viewer, see it.

Dr. Mali Mann is one of the most productive members of our Physician Writers Group. It is very gratifying to see her collect her poems – many of which she has presented at our public readings on Campus – into a single volume. The collection highlights the breadth of her poetic skills, dealing with issues as disparate as immigration, grief brought on by family transitions, a patient’s decline, or homesickness. She captures the deeply elegiac feel of being a physician and human, while echoing her rich Iranian cultural heritage. This volume celebrates her many years of writing in a beautiful voice. All of us, patients, doctors and lay people will benefit from her emotional wisdom.
