If Anne Carson’s experimental structures could be compared to flowers, “Autobiography of Red” would be a chrysanthemum and “The Beauty of the Husband” would be a daisy. Both are similar in that she places the main theme in the center of the “flower” and then writes all around it. Each chapter is a petal attached to the center. “Red” is more complex than “Beauty” in the same way a chrysanthemum has more petals than a daisy. And I loved them both. “Beauty” must be read several times to appreciate its full meaning and the decades this story spans in just 29 narrative poems. Once again, Anne Carson has proven to be a master of experimental narrative verse. She is simply the BEST.

One of the most original, inspiring, and at the same time "entertaining" and funny books I have ever read. Truly a masterpiece, one deserving frequent re-readings. One day this book will be a canonical masterpiece!

The book came a few days before I thought it would arrive and I opened it up as soon as I got home. I breezed through it in an hour or so, the next day I picked it up to re-read it and it was the hardest and one of most beautiful pieces of writings I have ever come across. I would recommend it to anyone, but know it's not light.

I've read and liked poetry by Anne Carson, but this book left me cold. I'll have to read it again to possibly approach it from another angle.

Anne Carson has written a beautiful book of poems/tangoes that somehow tell the story of a marriage without actually telling a story. We have fully realized moments, conversations (Carson writes amazing poetic conversations, here and in her other works), events -- without all the connections in between. And yet these moments are woven together, internally and from one tango to the next, with language used as the steps of a dance, providing motifs and figures that carry the reader from one page to the next. Dance, games, rules, war, the rules of war, love, beauty, truth, lies and betrayal -- all of these themes run in and out of the complicated pattern of steps. The technique always serves the lyric, however, and we never lose sight of the feelings Carson wishes to evoke. You feel the separate pains of each betrayal (her betrayal of her mother, the not-yet-husband's failure to appear for their wedding, his first infidelity, each subsequent lie), but despite the pain there is no bitterness in this book -- in fact, Carson's final advice is to "hold beauty." Just as you cannot tell the tale of the lover without telling the tale of the beloved (as the final poem ironically suggests), so, perhaps, you cannot have love, beauty and truth without their opposites. Carson, plainly, is on the side of beauty.

I disagree with the naysayers.....I just heard Ms. Carson read some of these poems and they are powerful and emotional. These poems are very different from GLASS, IRONY AND GOD or AUTOBIOGRAPHY IN RED but she is just increasing her range. I am amazed at how wide she is able to cast her net, her economy of language, her wide range of references in history, literature, the classics, pop culture. I think when you see her read (and I think her poetry is still great if one doesn't hear her read) her wry humour really clicks....it is amazing how much emotion she is able to convey through her wit....I think she is one of the most unique and refreshing voices in literature today. She is a very exciting poet.

Through the first half of this book, I was disappointed. Although Anne Carson was continuing her interesting use of language and her use of Keats quotations was brilliant, the volume lacked universality. It presented a courtship and marriage every dependent upon the particular individuals and their peculiarities. The courtship and marriage of individuals unknown to the reader has limited interest.
Fortunately, through the remainder of the book, Anne Carson finally finds her voice for this book. It becomes an interesting exploration of beauty especially beauty in the context of marriage. In one brilliant chapter she gives quotations of elegiac couplets recording the view of a branch through her back kitchen window. After a sampling of seasons, she closes with "Well I won't bore you with the whole annal. Point is, in total so far, 5820 elegiacs/ Which occupy 53 wirebound notebooks, / Piled on four shelves in the back kitchen. . ." She succeeds in painting a picture of a year's psychological response in a truly innovative manner.
Any author continually expanding their repetoire will make some missteps. This volume includes some of Anne Carson's missteps but it also includes some exciting innovation. Read and enjoy but don't expect perfection.
The storyteller in the The Beauty of the Husband is a woman who may or may not be Anne Carson, recollecting a failing marriage with a beating mind. Like other great stylists - Proust for example, her form of telling a story is peerless. Because after you have grasped the story why go back except to relish in style? As Godard has pointed out, "what is art except that by which forms become style." Perhaps Carson herself has written the best synopsis to her book,

what is the nature of the dance called memory

: Proust used to weep over days gone by,
do you?

So put on Piazzolla, read this book and answer for yourself what a lover wants from the beloved. Start with a little beauty and truth...
