Item description for October (Quarternote Chapbook Series) by Louise Gluck...

The third annual edition of Sarabande's Quarternote Chapbook Series.

"Identifying with the season of autumn, the dark of it, the barren, irreversible future of it, and the beauty of it, which is not seen as redemptive, the voice of Louise Glck is starker, more direct, more emotionally charged than it has ever been. October is a masterpiece."-Mark Strand

Her many honors include a National Book Critics Circle Award, a Bobbitt National Poetry Prize, a Pulitzer Prize, the first annual New Yorker Magazine's Readers Award, an Ambassador's Award, a William Carlos Williams Award, a Lannan Literary Award, a PEN/Martha Albrand Award for Nonfiction and a Bollingen Prize for Poetry.

Reviews - What do customers think about October (Quarternote Chapbook Series)?

Oh Please...  Sep 13, 2005
Gluck's new chapbook has all the character, texture, and smell of a know, one of those vast labyrinthine sewer systems popular during the Roman Empire. So already we're talking about a paragon of bad writing. The flow of sewage could be fast, at the very least (as there are abundant opportunities for it in her structure), but she chooses to keep the spigot closed, so eventually the stench becomes oppressive to the point of unimaginability. Gluck needs a real with less responsibility attached to it than a poet's.
a statement of no less significance for its brevity  Jul 16, 2004
Louise Gluck is dark poet with all the disillusionment of a visionary who does not ever barricade her mind to keep herself feeling safe. No one but Louise Gluck could ever have written this beautiful, crystal clear little book of masterful verse. Her use of language is unique & also accessible, & each of her syllables thuds into you like a punch in the gut & a pillow for you to fall deeply into.
It Is October But It Is Not Cold Again  May 11, 2004
Deep,captivating and provoking.A gigantic landscape painted with meticulously picked sage words.The poet laurate of the U.S.
should not be kept awaiting for Nobel until 2013 ...
