Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Poetry. "Rosmarie Waldrop is at once a philosopher of language and a master of the absurd that arises when we try to say what we mean, or mean what we say, or be what we may say"--Eric Elshtain. This is the seventeenth volume of poetry by a towering poet and a key intellectual figure in contemporary American literature. Well-known for her brilliant translations of the French poet Edmond Jabes, as well a dozen-plus volumes of translations from the French and German by a wide range of contempory European writers, it is no exaggeration to say that Rosmarie Waldrop has been fundamental to the relationship between European and American experimental poetry. "[Her] study of the dialogic textuality of language is also a study of ourselves and how we engage the world"--William Doreski, Harvard Review.

Synopsis:

In this collection, Waldrop has dedicated many poems to other writers whom she esteems, and in each poem, echoes subtly that writer's forms, tones, and textures. From this synchronism, Waldrop evolves her own unique mediums of address that suggests a slipperiness in human emotion and in human speech.

She has studied at Wuerzburg, Freiburg, Aix-Marseille and Michigan Universities, earning her Ph.D. in 1966. She has lived in the United States since 1958.
