About this product
- DescriptionThe Beautiful Contradictions is an awe-inspiring vortex of mythology, history, and anthropology that pushes the lyric to its upper limit. A vast ecopoem for a dying Earth,a socially radical poem, a matrilineal drama, a Judeo-Mayan-Buddhist initiation, a transatlantic epic ending as a transamerican arrival, a testament uniting science and imagination.
- Author BiographyThe American poet Nathaniel Tarn was born in Paris in 1928 and emigrated to the US in 1970, where he has lived ever since, mostly in the New Mexican desert. A leading anthropologist for many years and a pioneering translator of Pablo Neruda and Victor Segalen, Tarn, one of the most outstanding poets of his generation (Kenneth Rexroth), has published more than thirty books of poetry, essays, and translations-including most recently, The Beautiful Contradictions and Ins and Outs of the Forest Rivers, both available from New Directions.
