Continuum: Poems

Continuum: Poems Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Continuum is 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.

Synopsis:

A new collection of work from "a world-class, high-spirited, fierce, intelligent, uncompromising, and wonderfully nervy poet" (Stanley Kunitz).

Synopsis:

"The poems in this work show Cassian to be . . . a poet who can work miracles with language."—Library Journal
