    Oh, you should read this book It s smart and sweet and tender and original It s erotic, but just under your skin It s a novel in verse, but don t let that deter you You can pick it up off the shelf and settle into a big armchair in the bookstore and read the whole thing for free in an hour ev...

    An arresting novel in verse about art, desire, and abuse, Autobiography of Red blurs the line between the mythic and the mundane The work charts the brief life of a marginal figure from classical myth Geryon, the red winged monster slain by Hercules as part of his tenth labour In plain verse, Carson invents a modern, tragic backstory for Geryon, framing him as an abused child who, as an adult, becomes a sensitive photographer and the much wronged lover of Hercules Across dozens of fast moving chapters, the author considers the redemptive powers of art and questions what it means for two men to love each other The project s interesting than affecting much of the imagery is understated, bordering on dull, and the storyline s not that intellectually st...

    What do they think about Floating in there All night.Nothing.That s impossible.Why You can t be alive and think about nothing You can t but you re not a whale.Why would it be different Why should it be the same But I look in their eyes and I see them thinking.Nonsense It is yourself you see it s guilt.Guilt Why would I be guilty about whales Not my fault they re in a tank.Exactly So why are you guilty whose tank are you in Australian goodreader Sean account since nuked, sadly wrote a review of Garden, Ashes a wonderful book on Christmas He said it was his Christmas miracle , saving the day That had made me smile because I had felt that way about Anne Carson s Autobiography of Red It may seem a bit weird to write that now because days after it have needed saving Some kind of weight on the empty place It doesn t matter It is enough to have it when I can have it In the end he gets to fly, to swim I just breathed If you have to know how to look at it then I can look at it refracted through them Just don t stop doing that We are amazing beings,Geryon is thinking We are neighbors of fire.And no...

    While I do appreciate the imagery, at times it became annoyingly random Q Well Goodnight Then they said and drove him up Those hemorrhaging stairs to the hot dry Arms To the ticking red taxi of the incubus Don t want to go want to stay Downstairs and read c Q When Geryon was little he loved to sleep but even he loved to wake up He would run outside in his pajamas Hard morning winds were blowing life bolts against the sky each one blue enough to begin a world of its own.The word each blew towards him and came apart on the wind Geryon had always had this trouble a word like each, when he stared at it, would disassemble itself into separate letters and go A space for its meaning remained there but blank The letters themselves could be found hung on branches or furniture in the area What does each mean Q VI MEANWHILE IN HEAVEN Athena was looking down through the floor Of the glass bottomed boat Athena pointed Zeus looked Him c Q Q He loved lightning He lived on an island His mother was a Nymph of a river that ran to the sea His father was a gold Cutting tool Old scholia say that Stesichoros says that Geryon had six hands and six feet and wings He was red and His strange red cattle excited envy Herakles came and Killed him for his cattle The dog too c Q They watched each other, this odd pair c Q Pass down an alley then turn a corner and there it...

    Seldom have I seen a writer so maximize the balance between raw, grated, difficult, emotional pain and beautiful words that make me want to clutch them to my bosom and squeeze them with delight while making burbling noises of pleasure.

  6. Jessica says:

    I read this book when I was about twenty, and it was the greatest thing that I d ever read Then I purposely avoided rereading it for over a decade after that, terrified that it couldn t be as incredible as I remembered.So recently I did have to reread it, for school And no, it didn t do to me what it did the first time that I read it, and...

    If this is poetry, then I guess I don t really understandwhat poetry is If it s not about rhyme, or meter, sound, or the controlled use of precise, flowing, poetic language, then it seems to resemble prose exactly, but with arbitraryline breaks,which does not preclude it from being a beautiful storyabout heartbreak,and growing up, one that is deeply moving, and fille...

    One of those books that everyone else loves and I just did not get, oops Autobiography of Red has so many things I find relatable and should have liked a main character who experienced abuse in his childhood, a queer love story, and a plot that features the importance of art Unfortunately this novel in verse did not resonate with me I wante...

    It was taking him a very long whileto set up the camera Enormous pools of a moment kept opening around his handseach time he tried to move them. Every so often my education comes in handy when I am confronted by a piece that does not seize me by the heart and wring it till I weep like it has apparently done for most everyone else One could say peer pressure, or one could admit to capitalism and how a measure of discipline is needed in analyzing any work that is mandated, regardless of personal adoration Besides, this is one of those works that I really need to go back and reread The Iliad and The Odyssey and co for, albeit I dislike necessitating the swallowing of the same old canon for a work that should stand on its own, albeit there s many a confabulation of myth and written and blasphemy tickling my brain that I would so like to pin down to the count, albeit what the hell am I doing in the major of English if I want to forgo reading for reading s sake, so Sometimes the internal to and fr...

    In my short life I have learned that short novels need to be read for as long as they can be Then the good ones should be reread This is a challenge These short novels masquerade themselves as something that you can appreciate in a few hours of reading Yes, you can read The Lover in an afternoon, or The Hour of the Star in a few hours on a park bench with a good coffee in hand, or you can sit with The Crying of Lot 49 one Tuesday evening and get through it all If you have the ability to handle the cruelty, almost anything by Coetzee can be easily consumed in a single sitting with Glenn Gould s two recordings of the Goldberg Variations playing in the background Yes, you can even enjoy them in that time This is true But I must give myself some space to contradict myself here None of these books can be read in a few hours Short novels are the hardest novels to write, they need space to breathe between rapturous reading sessions They deserve time to become themselves in the same way that larger novels do The good ones count among some of the best works of written words give them life by giving them time tha...
