Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

These twenty-seven poems consider life on earth, from the microbe to the apocalypse. Along the way they take in, among other objects of study, the human teenager, divorce, Ella Fitzgerald, Vermeer’s Milkmaid, dreams, traffic accidents, Greek statues, television miniseries, the vagaries of memory, Madame Atropos, and even poetry writing. A book to treasure, from a virtuoso of form, line, and thought.

“A subtle, even a subversive muse of vulnerability and a great European poet.” —Richard Howard

Twenty-seven poems, as rendered by prize-winning translators Cavanagh and Baranczak, cover a range of themes from the author's teenage self to microscopic creatures and the upsides to living on Earth, delivered as a virtuoso of form, line, and thought.
