Just divine Transformative Will reread ad infinitum I have never felt any particular enjoyment in Lana Del Rey s music but that strangely is what this book reminded me of no not really that s all just the work of a freely associating mind just another product of a time that s raining cats and culture And especially when it comes to Anne Carson cultural artefacts such as this book are much less classifiable much genre defying than ever which is all to say it shouldn t be surprising that I finished reading this and then immediately read it again The Beauty of The Husband is a self proclaimed Fictional Essay in 29 Tangos presenting a deliciously bold take on Keats idea of beauty as truth and truth as beauty through the story of a deceitful difficult marriage With a full bodied and brutal lucidity Carson writes here of the dilemma of love and desire brewed together with analogies from classica Great concept lovely poems and beautiful presentation A must read by one of Canada s most ingenious poets Her lady shadow mounted the stairs ahead of her experimentallyFiction forms what streams in sNaturally it is suspectWhat does not wanting to desire mean What is it that binds one person to anotherWhy does beauty have such swayHow is it that one is bound to someone who is destructive or faithless or fickle or deceitful or who constantly disappears or who can never love you the way you want or need Or all of the above and yet the bond persists Why How is it that you can not escapeWhat cruel trick of fate or nature can give you over to such a creatureDon t call it my choiceI was venturedby some pure gravity of existence itselfconspiracy of beingand I do not apologize because as I say I was not to blame I was O viziune a sentimentelor unshielded in the face of existenceand existence depends on beautyIn the endExistence will not stopuntil it gets to beauty and then there follow all the conseuences that lead to the endUseless to interpose analysisor make contrafactual suggestionsIs this convincing Not as such but the book is convincing but also like the beautiful husband seductive and intoxicating The protagonist she loved him so Despite everything and wenderstand why she can t move on Sure the husband he s an asshole Deceitful destructive disappearing faithless fickle and Harveys Revised English Grammar unable to love her as she needed But his appeal wasn t his physical beauty but in the way he created worlds wove words into stories or lies and how those worlds and words spun dependence and love and how with those worlds and words he pushed her boundaries but all in a way that was tied to her that tied her that tiess we and she enthralled entwined enraptured What is it that binds one person to anotherWhy does beauty have such swayHow do people get power over one anotherThis book is a stab an attempt to Como agua para chocolate understand how love works its spell The book stabs at the phenomenon of obsession and love from different directionssing different rhythms styles meters techniues It s a painful book that draws blood from old wounds Your old wounds And yet when the wounds recur does that help illuminate the invisible ties Does the new blood glow Or do we just remain wounded simply reliving the pain of broken love And tho.

Ye need to know and estioned it furrowed around inside and in my opinion proven it in the context of the relationship between the husband and the wife The husband is beautiful to the wife and continued to be so no matter what hell he put her through the letters oh the letters were perfect the separations the cheating the brutal honesty That last bit is what really convinced me I feel that the husband was incapable of lying He was so beautiful that his honesty was off the charts No matter what this book deserves a reread Maybe my feelings or opinions will change I will be reading by Carson Really anything I can get my hands on will do Edit changed to 5 stars How can I not 455Good thing I don t have Keats on hand else there I goA lie for I have a form of it in nightingale third from the top of a section labeled Poetry in some chimera thing brewed for the last six years if the transcribed origin date does not lie Six hundred pages passed just this week the cut and paste accumulating in smallish fur micro soft for the consumer so pardon my crankiness whenever the adulation for paper and pen and etc grow a bit much I chomped the bit in typing school on the digital plane pitter pattered in trepidation of tendonitis across the backs of books wedged to the height of the keyboard and when the time came to write my thought has never been on good terms with my penmanship so why shouldn t I make se of the time I was born in If not for that I would never have my Keats and what a pity that would beCarson frightens me She s a single focus to an extraordinary extent run run run after a solitary author till she can write a work even I can recognize as totally immersed something I have spent year and page in six and six hundred outrunning in an effort to find my self Whereas Carson is those respectives reversed reminding me too much of that dread of being on the cusp of graduating to engineer to a single celled slice of idea pitted and potted to pieces with all the money in the world riding on a single bloodying calculation and not a blessing of literature andor diversity to be found I d sacrifice the span of my attention in a heartbeat to forgo being stuck and that s a line on which I ve stood both sidesHow does she compose I wonder I do so in fluid stutters never looking back so the fact she feels the same is suspect Then I think on the obvious references and the even damning bibliography and I wonder just how much of an academic is she I m a fair hand at the journal article myself judging by the published results but my current train of composition is different no matter how long I must go Try as I might I can t imagine careful checking beyond the interspersed ote instinct now without a full throated cringe although I do so admire the sheer density of allusion woven with play For despite all the Greek and French and English she is playing a trickster tonguing our supposed truth beauteous as the shine and twice as likely to slit our throats for that s the only way to talk of love She looks p from her work deep in the pleasure of it as he can see something about her blinds him Excuse this digressive brevity as inadvertent incentive to try your own hand. Den oundvikliga skilsmässan Den vackre maken som ständigt ljuger och bedrar hur rimmar han med Keats idé Och kärleken till honom kan den förlåta all.
