    The writing is evocative like a fist in the gut. Disturbing, eloquent, confusing, wrenching, and beautiful, often in the same poem.

    Poetry in translation is always difficult. I'm trying to think of the most successful poets in translation—Neruda? Rilke?—and there aren't many. Marin should be one of them, though:If I bind one word to anotherI endure deathfrom a scratchy, indistinct soundthat sets my hand on fire.(from "Elegy VI")

    I didn't really like this book but I think it's because I didn't grow up in Romania

    It's intense. I'll even concede to being downright scared when it came to the bludgeoning and cudgeling and shaved dog puppet skulls. And out of this intensity marches a blunt, floundering self-consciousness as engaging as it is off-putting. Did I like what I read? Yes in a way. No in a way. But I'm glad to have read it.

    incredibly claustrophobic and haunting. at times, the language was incredibly beautiful. very evocative of that particular slice of time in eastern europe.
