I found Short Talks years ago at City Lights in San Francisco. No money in my pockets, I took grainy cellphone pictures of every page. These poems are more compulsive, more biting than any of Anne Carson's I've read before. This book is not Carson's first, but each time I revisit it I feel like I'm reading her youth, her initial brilliant discovery of language.
