In this extraordinary epic poem, Anne Carson bridges the gap between classicism and the modern, poetry and prose, with a volcanic journey into the soul of a winged red monster named Geryon. There is a strong mixture of whimsy and sadness in Geryon's story. He is tormented as a boy by his brother, escapes to a parallel world of photography, and falls in love with Herakles - a golden young man who leaves Geryon at the peak of infatuation. Geryon retreats ever further into the world created by his camera, until that glass house is suddenly and irrevocably shattered by Herakles' return. Running throughout is Geryon's fascination with his wings, the colour red, and the fantastic accident of who he is. AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF RED is a deceptively simple narrative layered with currents of meaning, emotion, and the truth about what it's like to be red. It is a powerful and unsettling story that moves, disturbs, and delights.… (més)

ANNNNNNNEEEEEEE I could try to write some intelligent, useful review but it wouldn't live up to this so ( )

Far greater minds than mine have tried to sum up what this is about, so I'll leave it alone. Hypnotic. ( )

There are few reviewers who find any flaws in what they deem a work of genius. The author has taken scraps of a classical story and endeavored to wordsmith it into a verse novel. I found it strained and distasteful and have thrown it across the room. It’s going to the free little library for some other unfortunate souls to stumble upon. ( )

...Carson writes in language any poet would kill for: sensuous and funny, poignant, musical and tender, brilliantly lighted.
 
It is a novel, all right; a story which creates characters that are surprising but credible, involves them in an action that works to what seems an appropriate if somewhat mysterious end and, in this case, leaves the reader with a feeling that it contains depths which only rereading and reflection will sound. But the reader cannot help wondering: Was the decision to tell the story in verse justified?
