From a fountain where 'all the roads in the village unite', concentric circles expand into the distance: the young and old, fields, a river, a mountain - the fountain's stone counterpart, where the roads end, human time superimposed on geological time. Renowned as a lyrical poet of austere intensity, in "A Village Life Louise Gluck" evokes a Mediterranean world with luminous precision. Her focus is on moments of speculation and reflection in a dreamlike present tense.


 


 


'for her unmistakable poetic voice that with austere beauty makes individual existence universal' --Nobel Prize in Literature 2020

'Her writing's emotional and rhetorical intensity are beyond dispute. Not once in six books has she wavered from a formal seriousness, an unhurried sense of control and a starkness of expression that, like a scalpel, slices the mist dwelling between hope and pain.' --Washington Post

'Characteristically sure-footed, Glück speaks to our time in a voice that is onstage, but heard from the wings.' --Publishers Weekly
