    Hardcover ´ Nox MOBI º Nox eBookI'm pretty thoroughly depressed after reading this Actually after reading it twice in one sitting and after watching the second half of Kieślowski's sixth film in the Decalogue series I'm now feeling pretty fucking bleak Both the film and this book deal with the unknowableness of the other In the film a young man is in love with an older woman whom he spies on from his bedroom He watches her with lovers stalks her steals her mail makes phone calls to her and then hangs up and does other creepy things before he finally approaches her and tells her what he has been doing Something intrigues her about the man and they end up going on a date of sorts where she asks him what she wants from him and he tells her nothing that he loves her and wants nothing from her She laughs at him and tel

    Hardcover ´ Nox MOBI º Nox eBookIf possibly one could describe what Nox is as a work of abstract poetry it could possibly be considered a kind of meta elegy Because in many different ways Nox is a haunting work that talks about the elegiac mode while existing as an elegy in and of itself The title itself appears to be from the Latin for different variations of 'night' or 'nightfall' therefore reflecting the age old idea of death being like sleeping or p

    Hardcover ´ Nox MOBI º Nox eBookI blabber a lot about hybridity in writing Can poetry intersect nonfiction Can fiction play a role in botheither I like playing with form and genre and breaking concepts of what genre is expected to be I came across Nox in some of my research on these sorts of topics but as usual didn't investigate it too much beforehand I put in a reuest at my campus library and waited for it to arrive When the notification showed up in my email that this was ready to be picked up I was eager to get my paws on it And when I got there and the work study student stared at the box on the counter and looked at me and looked at the box and then looked to her boss I knew I was in for a treat Her boss called from her office Ye

    Hardcover ´ Nox MOBI º Nox eBookSome straightforward observations about Anne Carson's elegy Nox it comes in a large box like a rectangular room Inside the box is a free floating accordion style book which though beautiful is difficult to hold comfortably in the hand; it bends and twists as one turns the pages The book the room opens with an elegy by Catullus for his dead brother in the original Latin whose physical appearance is smudged and water stained and whose import is of course obscure to non Latin speaking readers This entry way then opens out in at least two directions for the rest of the book the left hand pages contain lexicographical entries enumerating the shades of each word from the Catullus poem; while the right hand pages gingerly prod the story of Carson's own b

    Hardcover ´ Nox MOBI º Nox eBookI read this text as part of the curriculum for a university sponsored weeklong poetry seminar I love poetry but readily admit that I don't read as much of it as I should My encounter with this book and the others from that week really broadened the horizons of my limited experience Anne Carson uses than her words to create her elegy for her dead brother she uses pictures and other relics of their childhood interviews with people from their past and the definitions of Latin words All of thes

    Hardcover ´ Nox MOBI º Nox eBookProwling the meanings of a word prowling the history of a person no use expecting a flood of light Human words have no main switch But all those little kidnaps in the dark And then the luminous big shivering discandied unrepentant barking web of them that hangs in your mind when you turn back to the page you were trying to translate —Anne Carson NOX To read NOX is like unwinding an ancient scroll or following a frieze around the porch of a temple or tracing a history twisting down a column or walking through a house in Pompeii with story in tiny bright fragments underfoot painted in walls and carved into the wood of couches Jane AlisonEverything that makes NOX hybrid and modern also makes it ancient taking us back thousands of years to when “fiction” “nonfiction” and “poetry” were not penned in separate rooms when shades of the same story might eually appear as a red figure painting on a vase or as a voice singing in darknessBecause it i
