Autobiography of red :a novel in verse Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Considered by Michael Ondaatje to be "the most exciting poet writing in English today", Anne Carson bridges the gap between modernity and classicism, poetry and prose, with a moving, volcanic journey into the soul of a winged red monster named Geryon.

Geryon tells his own story — how he hates his brother, discovers photography, and falls in love with a golden young man named Herakles. When he loses Herakles, Geryon finds himself retreating into the mirror world of his camera — a glass house waiting to be shattered by the fantastic accident of who he is.

Autobiography of Red is a deceptively simple narrative layered with currents of meaning, emotion, and the truth about what it's like to be red. This is a powerful and unsettling story that moves, disturbs, and delights.
