Known as a remarkable classicist, Anne Carson weaves contemporary and ancient poetic strands with stunning style in Glass, Irony and God. This collection includes: "The Glass Essay," a powerful poem about the end of a love affair, told in the context of Carson's reading of the Bronte sisters; "Book of Isaiah," a poem evoking the deeply primitive feel of ancient Judaism; and "The Fall of Rome," about her trip to "find" Rome and her struggle to overcome feelings of a terrible alienation there.

This book of poetry is purely amazing. It's worth every cent I paid to discover the delightful poetry of Ms. Carson. My favorite poem is "God's Justice" which I share below. Buy this book and experience the magic of her words.

God's Justice
By Anne Carson

In the beginning there were days set aside for various tasks.
On the day He was to create justice
God got involved in making a dragonfly

and lost track of time.
It was about two inches long
with turquoise dots all down its back like Lauren Bacall.

God watched it bend its tiny wire elbows
as it set about cleaning the transparent case of its head.
The eye globes mounted on the case

rotated this way and that
as it polished every angle.
Inside the case

which was glassy black like the windows of a downtown bank
God could see the machinery humming
and He watched the hum

travel all the way down turquoise dots to the end of the tail
and breathe off as light.
Its black wings vibrated in and out.

Glass, Irony and God contains some of my favorite poems by this author, "The Glass Essay" in particular. I think it is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the rest of her work. I first encountered Anne Carson in If Not, Winter, her starkly beautiful translation of and footnotes on the poetry of Sappho. Curiosity led me to "Father's Old Blue Cardigan," "The Glass Essay," and "The Book of Isaiah," all readily available at several online sites, including Poets.org and The Poetry Foundation. I was hooked. Recently, I presented some of her poems and essays at a poetry group. Members found her compelling, beautiful and harrowing; as one woman put it, "Her voice resounds with anger and light."

Good but not as good as her Plainwater essays.
DEAD-SHOT
It's masterfully written.

I picked up this book after reading a Anne Carson poem in the New Yorker. She is smart and unapologetic about it, sometimes writing about things beyond my own knowledge. All done in a wonderfully poetic hand. I can see myself buying more of her work.

The epic-length "Glass Essay" is one of my favorite contemporary poems of all time. Read it if you're heartbroken or angry. You can find it online if you need a trial read.

In a perfect form!
Interesting and emotional. Maybe too frantic is spots. Kind of like writing things down to work through therapy. Scholarly, though.
