Glass, Irony and God

Anne Carson

Great, small, heartfelt, learned, witty, funny and touching. You will find them all in this little book of four long poems and short talks!

Extract


Beauty makes me hopeless. I don't care anymore.
I just want to get away. When I look at the city of
Paris, I just want to wrap my legs round it. When
I watch you dancing there is a heartless
immensity like a sailor in a dead calm sea.
Desires as round as peaches bloom in me all
night, I no longer gather what falls.

from On Hedonism
