anne carson

A special friend just gave me this amazing book as an early birthday gift. It's a beautifully designed poem in a box. A sad but touching elegy to a lost brother.

From KCRW's Bookworm: "Anne Carson's brother ran away, and she never saw him again. After learning of his death some twenty years later, she assembled Nox  as a form of grieving. She gathered bits of his letters, photographs, a poem by the Roman poet Catullus about his own brother's death, and made a memory-book that brings together collage, poetry, translation and recollection." -Micah Ling
