L'Oeil Du Minuit

Free sample

 This Is What A Man Sees In A Meeting Of Words, That Worlds Out Of Time Can Not. The Passages From Once Absurdity And Then Free-Falling Out Of Such A Cradle... To Then Grasp A Notion To Formations Of Seemingly Jumbled Vocalitys... InTo Sharpness And A Spider’s Bite. Such A Trivial Mass For Some To Sweep ASide... But For Others With Different Mothers... The Pages May Call For A Summoning Cry, To SomeWhere Forgotten... A Notch InTo The Tree, With WhatEver Ink May Come Forth To Speak.


This Is The Eye Of Midnight... L’Oeil Du Minuit... And In This Amongst Its Comedys Are The Lines Drawn. They Are Drawn To As Well As From... Never To Bring Forth Tears; Perhaps For The Best Of The Sighted Can Those Days AWay From Such Wetness Be Read And Seen To Be Flipped Dry...



Watch These Words Fly Like Ashes In The Flame... And Let Them Tuck You In... Some Sleepy Mountains Have Yet To Grin.

Anne Carson
The award-winning poet reinvents a genre in a stunning work that is both a novel and a poem, both an unconventional re-creation of an ancient Greek myth and a wholly original coming-of-age story set in the present.

Geryon, a young boy who is also a winged red monster, reveals the volcanic terrain of his fragile, tormented soul in an autobiography he begins at the age of five. As he grows older, Geryon escapes his abusive brother and affectionate but ineffectual mother, finding solace behind the lens of his camera and in the arms of a young man named Herakles, a cavalier drifter who leaves him at the peak of infatuation. When Herakles reappears years later, Geryon confronts again the pain of his desire and embarks on a journey that will unleash his creative imagination to its fullest extent. By turns whimsical and haunting, erudite and accessible, richly layered and deceptively simple, Autobiography of Red is a profoundly moving portrait of an artist coming to terms with the fantastic accident of who he is.
