Waterstones Says

From the Bronte sisters to Kafka - via waterproofing and walking backwards - Carson's scintillating collection merges the modern and the classical in the poet's singular laconic voice.

Anne Carson' s first full-length publication in Britain, Glass and God introduces an assured and challenging new voice: vivid, laconic, precise. Her 'Short Talks' are about everything from Sylvia Plath to Franz Kafka, from waterproofing to walking backwards; the brilliant long poem 'The Glass Essay' deals with the end of a contemporary love affair, but is haunted by the Bronte sisters.

Blending the modern and the classical, Anne Carson writes with an intensity and an integrity that is transfiguring.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Anne Carson is a daring, learned, unsettling writer. Both in poetry and in prose (and the nimble mixtures of both that are characteristic of her work) she offers and upholds exceptional pleasures and standards. A unique figure in the North American literary landscape and not nearly as well known as she should be - Susan Sontag

Anne Carson's poems are like notes made in their pristine urgency, as fresh and bright as a series of sudden remarks... A real poet whose poems are unfailingly memorable... [whose] powers of invention are apparently infinite - Guy Davenport

Anne Carson is a new and brilliant talent making her English debut with this volume - Peter Porter

She is a rare talent - brilliant and full of wit, passionate and also deeply moving. Her long poem 'The Glass Essay' is oen of the best of our time - Michael Ondaatje
