This influential avant-garde doyenne, whose translations of Edmond Jabes were seminal events in postwar American poetry, handily manages the paradox of the lucid enigma . . . she maintains a distinctly American voice—quick-witted, conversational, and visually concrete . . . a poetry that pleases no less than it puzzles.” —Voice Literary Supplement. Split Infinites is a stunning new book by one of the most complex voices of contemporary poetry. Equally at home with the verse experiment, philosophical statement and personal narrative, Rosmarie Waldrop gives us, in Split Infinites, the full measure of her art.
