More good news from poetry alum ’13 Tara Skurtu! Eyewear Publishing is publishing her chapbook, Skurtu, Romania, a collection of poems she wrote from her experience in Romania during her Robert Pinsky Global Fellowship. The book launch is tonight in London, 7 Pm at Koppell Gallery! The book is also appearing simultaneously in Romanian through Editura Charmides, translated by Radu Vancu.
From the back cover:
“In Skurtu, Romania, the poet lands physically and emotionally in the country of her family’s forgotten history, and she familiarizes herself in this foreign place through the dynamic of an alienating love story. Tara Skurtu’s poems have the logic of memory, the vivid spontaneity of dreams, and the precision of calculus—each line is, in a sense, an asymptote continually approaching the limits of language and love. This poetry holds a lens over every moment, alters the perception of home, invites the reader in as both foreigner and guest.”
