review Autobiography of Red

Autobiography of Red review ó 3 The award winning poet Anne Carson reinvents a genre in Autobiography of Red a stunning work that is both a novel and a poem both an unconventional re creation of an ancient Greek myth and a wholly original coming of age story set in the presentGeryon a young boy who is also a winged red monster reveals the volcanic terrain of his fragile tormented soul in an autobiography he begins at the age of five As he grows older Geryon escapes his abusive brot. What do they think about Floating in there All nightNothingThat s impossibleWhyYou can t be alive and think about nothing You can t but you re not a whaleWhy would it be differentWhy should it be the same But I look in their eyes and I see them thinkingNonsense It is yourself you see it s guiltGuilt Why would I be guilty about whales Not my fault they re in a tankExactly So why are you guilty whose tank are you inAustralian goodreader Sean account since nuked sadly wrote a review of Garden Ashes a wonderful book on Christmas He said it was his Christmas miracle saving the day That had made me smile because I had felt that way about Anne Carson s Autobiography of Red It may seem a bit weird to write that now because days after it have needed saving Some kind of weight on the empty place It doesn t matter It is enough to have it when I can have it In the end he gets to fly to swim I just breathed If you have to know how to look at it then I can look at it refracted through them Just don t stop doing that We are amazing beingsGeryon is thinking We are neighbors of fireAnd now time is rushing towards themwhere they stand side by side with arms touching immortality on their faces night at their backGeryon is a little boy and he goes to his mother He stays by her side They are up all night They make dinner They turn on every light in the house Geryon saves the voices his mother makes when she reads to him He keeps them safe by allowing the babysitter to read in voices she cannot get wrong because they are not his mother s voices She comes home to him when he is awake He must have forgotten to stay awake for her Would it ever be warmer than this Days turn into nights and secrets He meets him Herakles on his red wing tips carrying dust Folding back arms for a hug She still folds his t shirts Mother can hug him no I wanted him to stay in that kitchen with his mother but he couldn t I wonder if she turns on lights without him or just watches the empty fruit bowl Still life painting without the life subject Geryon always cries when they make love Herakles couldn t wait forever He s so impatient I wonder if he s just waiting to get old When he s old he ll be impatient to be young Herakles hides on his grandmother s porch I imagine he uses his grandmother as something of his own when he wants to shut out He would use her as something of his own like a secret when he wants to invite in This is where I live my family my end of the sofa Geryon floats Suspenders under his coat wings kept in he flies above the land to where the Nazis and Argentinians live He studies volcanoes Mountains with left over ashes and fires to be started kept within Herakles comes back Herakles has Ancash Paintings that look like something from far away When you get up close he is back in your bed I wouldn t want to be in love with Herakles I would be afraid to dance like Angela on My So Called Life to Tears of the Sun when she believes she s finally over Jordan Catalano It s a dance to convince oneself It s a denial and the only thing you can do Don t want to find out if you re wrong Geryon is close to the mountain He could jump in if he doesn t learn another place He could have made a sacrifice Autobiography of Red was my Christmas miracle when Geryon is okay without Herakles I really needed that No one can kill your red dog or anything if you can be okay with yourself It s something about not wanting anyone else s secret There is no power there any Something about not living in dreams Or maybe it was his new boyfriend sitting up in the cold outside Would you look into the beluga whales and see only yourself in the tank or just wish they could swim and keep on I d put something with wings on top of that Christmas tree and light all the candles for that

Autobiography of Red review ó 3 Her and affectionate but ineffectual mother finding solace behind the lens of his camera and in the arms of a young man named Herakles a cavalier drifter who leaves him at the peak of infatuation When Herakles reappears years later Geryon confronts again the pain of his desire and embarks on a journey that will unleash his creative imagination to its fullest extent By turns whimsical and haunting erudite and accessible richly layered and deceptively. If this is poetry then I guess I don t really understandwhat poetry is If it s not about rhyme or meter sound or the controlled use of precise flowing poetic language then it seems to resemble prose exactly but with arbitraryline breakswhich does not preclude it from being a beautiful storyabout heartbreakand growing up one that is deeply moving and filled with powerfulimagery just that I felt distracted by the form driven to constantly uestionwhy it is written in this way perhaps in imitation and homage to the original work of Stesichorosbut then why forsake all of the basic elements of poetry that make it sing and give it power
