Anne Carson – Nox



Flat rate UK Postage of £3.25 will be added to this order. Any additional books ordered are postage free


Anne Carson’s haunting and beautiful NOX is her first book of poetry in five years – a unique, illustrated, accordion-fold-out “book in a box”. NOX is an epitaph in the form of a book, a facsimile of a handmade book Anne Carson wrote and created after the death of her brother. The poem describes coming to terms with his loss through the lens of her translation of Poem 101 by Catullus “for his brother who died in the Troad”. NOX is a work of poetry, but arrives as a fascinating and unique physical object. Carson pasted old letters, family photos, collages and sketches on pages. The poems, typed on a computer, were added to this illustrated “book” creating a visual and reading experience so amazing as to open up our concept of poetry.
