"To what extent is Proust — or Beckett, or whomever a Carson book recruits — an interchangeable signifier of hefty, high culture? Discussing the typical Paul Auster novel, James Woods elegantly describes the maneuver: “A visiting text — Chateaubriand, Rousseau, Hawthorne, Poe, Beckett — is elegantly slid into the host book.” Whom, I’ve started to wonder, will Carson host next? What is there to quote?" Jason Guriel on Anne Carson • Poetry
