Product Description
<p><strong>Anne Carson’s haunting and beautiful <em>Nox</em> is her first book of poetry in five years—a unique, illustrated, accordion-fold-out “book in a box.”</strong></p><em>Nox</em> is an epitaph in the form of a book, a facsimile of a handmade book Anne Carson wrote and created after the death of her brother. The poem describes coming to terms with his loss through the lens of her translation of Poem 101 by Catullus “for his brother who died in the Troad.” <em>Nox</em> is a work of poetry, but arrives as a fascinating and unique physical object. Carson pasted old letters, family photos, collages and sketches on pages. The poems, typed on a computer, were added to this illustrated “book” creating a visual and reading experience so amazing as to open up our concept of poetry. 50 color and black-and-white prints
