Short Talks by Anne Carson

Short Talks

Rating: ★★★★

Genre: Poetry

Medium: Paperback

Synopsis: Anne Carson, in one of her first books, gives short poetry-prose talks on certain subjects such as “The End,” “Sylvia Plath,” and “Walking Backwards.”

Review: This short book is perfect for a small flight, a quick bus ride, or a commuter train.  I’ve been a fan of Carson’s poetry ever since I read The Autobiography of Red, and this book did not disappoint.  Carson truly has a way of weaving words that leave you feeling a little heavy-hearted as well as satisfied.  Her creativity and imagination never ceases to amaze me.  I wish I could find out how she can create worlds out of everyday things.
