Reviews

"One of the most singular lyric voices to emerge in France in the last quarter century, Emmanuel Moses is well served by veteran American poet-translator Marilyn Hacker, whose translations from the poet's three latest collections have a way of casting their own spell. Moses can be elegiac, disarmingly personal, celebratory, and, notably in his remarkable cycles of preludes and fugues, mysterious and elliptical--evoking a tremulous, lost kingdom in beautifully cadenced, organ-toned free verse lines. In Preludes and Fugues we witness the poet amidst the roses, and the ashes, of the 'impassable threshold.'"--Gabriel Levin
