The third item that came up when I googled Anne Carson was a New York Times article entitled, “The Inscrutable Brilliance of Anne Carson.” ‘Inscrutable’ seems like an appropriate word. I’d heard and read so much about her doing interesting work that I wanted to try something. I read all of the words in this novel in verse, but I’m not sure I understood all of it. It’s engaging, but it felt like there was something more that was just out of my reach. Ah well. I gave it a shot.
