Continuum: Poemsby Nina Cassian
Synopses & Reviews
Continuumis a sweeping collection from a "miraculous" (Dana Gioia) poet. Spanning nearly sixty years, these poems--both new English translations of her work in Romanian--blend her gallows humor and an engagement with the human experience, from memories of a childhood at play to the contemplation of a gradual mortality.
"The poems in this work show Cassian to be . . . a poet who can work miracles with language."--
Spanning nearly sixty years, these poems--both new English compositions and Nina Cassian's translations of her work in Romanian--blend her gallows humor with an engagement with the human experience.
