Reinventing figures as diverse as Oedipus, Emily Dickinson and Audubon, Anne Carson sets up startling juxtapositions in the poems and prose of Men in the Off Hours: Lazarus among video paraphernalia, Virgina Woolf and Thueydides discussing war, Edward Hopper paintings illuminated by St. Augustine. Revealing in unexpectedness and aware that "the fact of the matter for humans is imperfection," Men in the Off Hours shows us a fiercely individual poet at her best.
"Carson's reputation has soared to a level equal to that of the half-dozen most admired contemporary American poets."?The New York Times Book Review
