Need to sit on this a bit. Anne Carson's writing is soo beautiful and thought provoking, and her references are all so strong. Now I have to go read all of her translations and everything else she ever breathed on. And I've never wanted to reread Paradise Lost until I saw all of Keats' notes in the pages between.

"I thought changes were holy. I spilled them like grain. How could I know. How could I know she would lose."

"But words / are a strange docile wheat are they not, they bend / to the ground."… (lisätietoja)

A beautiful volume, unlike anything else I've read. It's filled with sharp wit and great humor (I was actually laughing out loud at passages from Part 1), interesting explorations of time and the terrain of what we think we know or is knowable, and moving, clear-eyed self-reflection that successful avoids the sentimental or the maudlin.

If you've read [a:Marcel Proust|233619|Marcel Proust|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1392271688p2/233619.jpg] and have any thoughts/opinions about Albertine (and how can you not), you will adore this humorous, thought provoking piece by Anne Carson, who through a series of short statements tills much (but still not all) of the oddity that Albertine poses in Proust's novel. The form itself is fun and quirky, reflecting the consistent thread of levity through In Search of Lost Time that never gets its due attention. This was also my first read of Anne Carson--I will be back for more!… (lisätietoja)

Es el primer libro que leo de Anne Carson y seguro que repetiré. Me gustan mucho los libros que traen a la época contemporánea, con análisis y vivencias que pueden llegar a cualquier lector, momentos, reflexiones y sentimientos de la literatura clásica. En este caso, partiendo de Safo, vamos viajando por las contradicciones del amor con Montaigne, Platón, Stendhal o Longo, en capítulos cortos y bien cargados de citas largas y jugosas.

La traducción de Inmaculada Pérez Parra es impecable, para un libro difícil, por la complejidad de las ideas, por la cantidad de idiomas que intervienen, por la dificultad de gestionar las citas.

Lo recomiendo sin reservas, como un libro para leer despacio y con tranquilidad, sin atracones.
