E-Book ( EPUB mit Adobe DRM )
In Ihrem Land nicht verfügbar


A rare and beautifully produced "e;accordion"e; book by renowned novelist and poet Anne Michaels and acclaimed artist and writer Bernice Eisenstein that will cause a stir for both its form and its content.Anne Michaels's resonant book-length poem--which unfolds on one side of the pages of this accordion book--ranges from the universal to the intimate, as she writes of historical figures for whom language was the closest thing to salvation; on the other side, we have Bernice Eisenstein's luminous portraits of and quotes from such twentieth-century writers and thinkers as Paul Celan, Nelly Sachs, W. G. Sebald, Anna Akhmatova, Primo Levi, and Albert Einstein. The poetry and portraits join together in a dialogue that can be read in any direction and any order, in a format that perfectly reflects the thematic interconnectedness of this collaboration: "e;an alphabet of spirits and spirit; an elegy of remembrance"e; (Eisenstein); "e;just as a conversation becomes the third side of the page . . . the moment one life becomes another"e; (Michaels).
