Speaking with Anne Carson

I had the opportunity to interview the great Anne Carson over e-mail recently. I write "the great" simply because it's hard to find the words to describe Ms. Carson. She is a great translator, poet and essayist. Her theatrical translations (like her newest "Antigonick") are fabulous as is her brilliant translation of the complete work of Sappho. Her essays, in particular her book "Eros the Bittersweet" should be essential reading. It was a great thrill to talk with her and I can't say enough good things about her work.
