searching for things sublime…

Anne Carson is surely one of the most innovative poets writing today. Her magnificent book Plainwater is a must-read if there ever were such a thing. Here are the opening lines to “And Reason Remains Undaunted,” published in The Threepenny Review:

“Searching for things sublime I walked up into the muddy
windy big hills
behind the town where trees riot according to their own laws”
