Publisher Description

Anne Carson is the most original, most uniquely gifted poet to have appeared in the past decade. Her first full-length publication in Britain, Glass, Irony and God introduces an assured and challenging new voice: vivid, laconic and precise. Her 'Short Talks' are about everything from Sylvia Plath to Franz Kafka, from waterproofing to walking backwards; the brilliant long poem 'The Glass Essay' deals with the end of a comtemporary love affair, but is haunted by the Bronte sisters. Blending the modern and the classical, Anne Carson writes with an intensity and an integrity that is transfiguring; it is the work of a philosopher and poet - work of luminous, enigmatic genius.

Author Biography

Anne Carson (June 21, 1950) is a Canadian poet, essayist, translator, and a professor of Classics and comparative literature at the University of Michigan. Carson lived in Montreal for several years and taught at McGill University. She is reticent about her private life; the biography published in current editions of her books simply states Anne Carson lives in Canada.

Review

She is a rare talent - brilliant and full of wit, passionate and also deeply moving. Her long poem 'The Glass Essay' is oen of the best of our time -- Michael Ondaatje Anne Carson is a new and brilliant talent making her English debut with this volume -- Peter Porter Anne Carson's poems are like notes made in their pristine urgency, as fresh and bright as a series of sudden remarks... A real poet whose poems are unfailingly memorable... [whose] powers of invention are apparently infinite -- Guy Davenport Anne Carson is a daring, learned, unsettling writer. Both in poetry and in prose (and the nimble mixtures of both that are characteristic of her work) she offers and upholds exceptional pleasures and standards. A unique figure in the North American literary landscape and not nearly as well known as she should be -- Susan Sontag
