really liked it

Anne Carson has a fantasticly new style that i've not seen before. I'm not a new reader of poetry, but i've been reading more 50's based poets (new critics, new york school, etc), and so turning to carson has been a treat. her treatment of classical works with very unclassical form is really something to read over and over.

it's always hard to rate. some of her longer poems here are a bit difficult, but that's what poetry is for, sometimes: to delve, delve.
