Wrong Norma--Anne Carson

If you're familiar with Anne Carson's work, you know why people say she's a genius  If you haven't read her before, this collection should show you what all the shouting's about. Carson is a classicist, a poet, and a visual artist, but she creates a word-medium all her own, combining a formidable intellect with an absolutely original, often outrageous imagination. An example at random: in  "Oh, What a Night" she  takes Alcibiades' speech about Socrates, from Plato's Symposium,  and runs with it;  the original will never be the same.  Each of these offerings is quirky, inspired, absurd and illuminating.
