Boek cover Averno van Louise Gluck (Paperback)
Averno is a small crater lake in southern Italy, regarded by the ancient Romans as the entrance to the underworld. That place gives its name to Louise Glück’s eleventh collection: in a landscape turned irretrievably to winter, it is the only source of heat and light, a gate or passageway that invites traffic between worlds while at the same time opposing their reconciliation. Averno is an extended lamentation, its long, restless poems no less spellbinding for being without plot or hope, no less ravishing for being savage, grief-stricken. What Averno provides is not a map to a point of...

Boek cover A Village Life van Louise Gluck (Paperback)
Poems
WINNER OF THE NOBEL PRIZE IN LITERATURE A Village Life, Louise Glück's eleventh collection of poems, begins in the topography of a village, a Mediterranean world of no definite moment or place: All the roads in the village unite at the fountain. Avenue of Liberty, Avenue of the Acacia Trees— The fountain rises at the center of the plaza; on sunny days, rainbows in the piss of the cherub. —from "tributaries" Around the fountain are concentric circles of figures, organized by age and in degrees of distance: fields, a river, and, like the fountain's opposite, a mountain. Human...

Boek cover Poems 1962-2012 van Louise Gluck (Paperback)
Louise Glück
The collected works of the inimitable Pulitzer Prize–winning poet It is the astonishment of Louise Glück's poetry that it resists collection. With each successive book her drive to leave behind what came before has grown more fierce, the force of her gaze fixed on what has yet to be imagined. She invented a form to accommodate this need, the book-length sequence of poems, like a landscape seen from above, a novel with lacunae opening onto the unspeakable. The reiterated yet endlessly transfigured elements in this landscape—Persephone, a copper beech, a mother and father and sister, a...

Boek cover Averno van Louise Gluck (Hardcover)
gedichten
‘De beste typering van Glücks poëzie is dat “alles wat ze aanraakt, verandert in muziek en legende”. Inderdaad, Glück hoort bij die club van dichters van wie het werk uit zichzelf zingt, waar de nadrukken liggen waar zij ze heeft bedacht en een verhaal te vertellen heeft: van compassie, verwondering, afkeer, en soms ook van lyrische woede.’ – Philip Huff in De Groene Amsterdammer Glück noemde Averno (2006) naar een klein kratermeer in Zuid-Italië, dat de Romeinen beschouwden als de toegang tot de onderwereld. Averno is als een lange, rusteloze klaagzang vol spitsvondigheid...
