Item description for The World Cut Out With Crooked Scissors: Selected Prose Poems (New Issues Poetry & Prose) by David Keplinger Carsten Rene Nielsen...
From the translator's note: Born in 1966, Nielsen works as a full time writer in Aarhus, the second largest Danish city, an academic and cultural center located on the peninsula of Jutland. Aarhus is also the home of the Grauballe Man, a bog man 2000 years old and displayed year round at Moesgaard Museum in a wooded area south of the city. This man, his cut open throat, his fractured shin, his beard stubble, his skin even his fingerprints preserved by the tannins of the bog, though flattened by its tremendous weight, lies displayed under glass, a ghastly testament to our common tribal past. I find in Nielsen's poems a similar spectacle the little glass box of form, and, within, something old, nasty, fascinating, human.
