Anne Carson:
The Beauty of the Husband: A Fictional Essay in 29 Tangos - Livres de poche

ISBN: 0375707573

[SR: 1061112], Paperback, [EAN: 9780375707575], Random House Inc, Random House Inc, Book, [PU: Random House Inc], Random House Inc, Though Anne Carson's poetry is shot through with the myths and images of the classical world, that ancient light helps illuminate contemporary situations and concerns. A classics professor at McGill University in Montreal, Carson has arrived in a surprisingly short time as one of Canada's finest poets. More than that, her exquisite, intelligent, highly original poems put her in the first rank of world poets. In The Beauty of the Husband, subtitled A Fictional Essay in 29 Tangos, she explores her ambiguous feelings toward a difficult but intriguing marriage. Each poem begins with a short quote from John Keats, whose idea that "beauty is truth" is the thread holding together a relationship with a man addicted to lying and philandering. A scoundrel ("He lied when it wasn't even convenient"), the husband is redeemed and forgiven almost everything because of beauty. For Carson, the truth is "layered and elusive," hidden under the conversations of a thousand nights, nights when the lights were still on at dawn. There is a daring quality to Carson's work, a startling vision and perspective that will not be judged by normal standards. By penetrating to the core of a relationship, Carson stands convention on its head and finds "the light that pain brings." These poems bespeak the brilliance and shade of shape-shifting truth and conjure a freshness of language that shimmers. Somehow it seems fitting that the book itself, as an object to hold and behold, is also beautiful. --Mark Frutkin, 927726, Subjects, 933484, Arts & Photography, 934986, Biographies & Memoirs, 935522, Business & Investing, 4142731, Calendars, 935948, Children's Books, 953666, Christian Books & Bibles, 13932641, Comics & Graphic Novels, 939082, Computers & Technology, 940804, Cookbooks, Food & Wine, 943356, Crafts, Hobbies & Home, 952366, Education & Reference, 15433408011, Erotica, 680096011, French Books (Livres en français), 942318, Gay & Lesbian, 942402, Health, Fitness & Dieting, 927728, History, 941378, Humour & Entertainment, 927730, Law, 927790, Literature & Fiction, 948300, Medical Books, 948808, Mystery, Thriller & Suspense, 950640, Parenting & Relationships, 5489589011, Politics & Social Sciences, 950756, Professional & Technical, 953420, Religion & Spirituality, 955190, Romance, 956280, Science & Math, 957368, Science Fiction & Fantasy, 943272, Self-Help, 959466, Sports & Outdoors, 959978, Teens, 15115321, Textbooks, 960696, Travel, 916520, Books

2002, ISBN: 9780375707575

[ED: Paperback / Taschenbuch], [PU: Vintage Books], The Beauty Of The Husband is an essay on Keatss idea that beauty is truth, and is also the story of a marriage. It is told in 29 tangos. A tango (like a marriage) is something you have to dance to the end. This clear-eyed, brutal, moving, darkly funny book tells a single story in an immediate, accessible voice29 tangos of narrative verse that take us vividly through erotic, painful, and heartbreaking scenes from a long-time marriage that falls apart. Only award-winning poet Anne Carson could create a work that takes on the oldest of lyrical subjectsloveand make it this powerful, this fresh, this devastating. 'An exquisite meditation on love and loss that reads with the emotional depth--and with the ongoing resonance--of a great novel.' --Elle The introduction, discussion questions, suggestions for further reading, and author biography that follow are designed to enhance your group's reading and discussion of the work of Anne Carson, whom Michael Ondaatje praised as 'the most exciting poet writing in English today.' Carson is a winner of the prestigious MacArthur fellowship, and has been the recipient of much admiration in the literary world. She is credited with the invention of an entirely new kind of poetry, fusing free verse with prose passages, using pastiche to startling effect, combining searing emotion with austere intellect. Interspersing her own words with quotes and references to sources that range from classical Greek literature, St. Augustine, the Bible, and the Tao to Emily Dickinson, Virginia Woolf, Gertrude Stein, Franz Kafka, and Marcel Proust, Carson constructs an astonishing art that is able to arouse, like nothing else in recent years, new emotional and intellectual energies in her readers. As one reviewer commented, 'There's good reason that Carson's reputation has soared to a level equal to that of the half-dozen most admired contemporary American poets. . . . She has . . . a vast habitat, to every bit of which she brings powerful perception and a freshness as startling as a loud knock at the door' (Calvin Bedient, 'Celebrating Imperfection,' a review of Men in the Off Hours .
