Award-winning writer Anne Carson is “the most exciting poet writing in English today,” said Michael Ondaatje. Carson, an essayist and classicist, is the author of many collections and translations, including Decreation, The Beauty of the Husband, Eros the Bittersweet and Autobiography of Red. Carson made full use of the 92nd Street Y stage for a dramatic reading/performance that has to be seen to be fully appreciated. This is an excerpt of her second piece of evening, “Possessive Used As Drink (Me): A Lecture on Pronouns in the Form of 15 Sonnets.”

Suzannah B. Troy with love from The Metropolitan Museum NYC

2 Suzannah B. Troy with love from The Metropolitan Museum NYChttp://www.metmuseum.org/ With love from Suzannah from The Met Museum. I am over exhausted as if I am “post traumatic stressing” yet I love my youtube pals from across the USA and abroad so this is for you with love.

I even mention Mickey Rourke because I have so many people that admire his raw talent and I am wearing that funny thrift shop hat of mine because I am having a bad hair day.
