Product details

Product description


"Like all of Anne Carson's writing, this book is amazing - I haven't discovered any writing in years that's so marvellously disturbing. I just feel so happy that she's around" (Alice Munro)

"Her work is full of moments of startling originality and beauty. The poems play with character and plot, myth and magic; they are rich with attitude and wit and the undertow of grief. If she was a prose writer she would instantly be recognised as a genius" (Colm Tóibín Times Literary Supplement)

"Anne Carson has created, from fragments of the Greek poet Stesichoros, a profound love story...forty-seven compulsively readable long-lined poems of intense cinematic detail. Carson writes in language any poet would kill for: sensuous and funny, poignant, musical and tender, brilliantly lighted" (Ruth Padel New York Times Book Review)

"Anne Carson is a daring, learned, unsettling writer. Autobiography of Red, which perhaps comes closest to representing the range of her voice and gifts, is a spellbinding achievement" (Susan Sontag)

Book Description

`Anne Carson is, for me, the most exciting poet writing in English today. AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF RED is a wonderful, mongrel work, a strange and ambitious bridge between classical texts and contemporary autobiographical poetry. ' Michael Ondaatje
