Texte du rabat

"This is a remarkable, gripping, and moving book, itself a kind of extended prose poem, crafted by Carson between the excerpts of the two poets and her amazing readings and juxtapositions thereof. Like all of Carson's writing, it is sui generis, combining meticulous scholarship with the sensibility and style of a poet. I have always felt it was a privilege simply to be allowed to read Carson's work, and this manuscript is perhaps the best thing she has done."--Leslie Kurke, University of California, Berkeley



Résumé
Offers a reading of certain of Simonides' texts and aligns these with writings of the modern Romanian poet Paul Celan. Asking such questions as, What is lost when words are wasted? and Who profits when words are saved? This work reveals the two poets' striking commonalities.
