Ann Carson    


Bold Type's Poetry Editor Ernest Hilbert writes "Anne Carson remains among the most uniformly fascinating poets writing in English today (this is partly because it isn't even clear that what she is writing is merely poetry). After the widely-read and critically-esteemed Autobiography of Red, a formational novel in verse, her Men in the Off Hours proved bewilderingly complex to many. This is due to the fact that no one had ever read anything like it before. True innovators are generally overlooked or even shunned in their own ages."
