A Village Life, Paperback / softback Book

A Village Life Paperback / softback


From a fountain where 'all the roads in the village unite', concentric circles expand into the distance: the young and old, fields, a river, a mountain - the fountain's stone counterpart, where the roads end, human time superimposed on geological time.

Renowned as a lyrical poet of austere intensity, in "A Village Life Louise Gluck" evokes a Mediterranean world with luminous precision.

Her focus is on moments of speculation and reflection in a dreamlike present tense.
