"Throughout her professional life, Carson has attempted, with difficulty she says, to capture in English this “passionate slow surface of a Roman elegy”. While Nox includes her English translation of poem 101, the book is most of all remarkable for its other forms of expression, the physical as well as the linguistic, including an individualist etymology of the poem’s every word, simultaneously professorial and passionate in a way that Catullus, that greatest of Roman innovators, might very plausibly have approved of himself." Peter Stothard on Anne Carson • TLS
