Jacqueline Risset, Jennifer Moxley
this is often my test. The e's could glance a bit gentle, yet that's as a result of printing.
The delusion of Diana and Actaeon varieties the matrix for this poem which tells of Eros and Language, and of dismemberment. It attempts to exasperate abstraction and shortage till the horizon turns and divulges photographs from formative years, the child's physique. Love erupts into sacrifice; sentences holiday into feverish clusters of shifters. ultimately, the I Ching, Maurice Sceve, and Marcel Proust are translated into sheer vertigo. the writer has stated: "writing, as I comprehend it, starts off biographically, autobiographically. these moments whilst I first felt referred to as through the need to write...were continuously associated with whatever one calls mystical cases, whilst the limitations of identification are lifted and there's a break."

"Risset writes a synaptic house among languages... [she] explodes the idea that of translation from that of word/object substitution... moving the act of translation in an anti-system within which the very concept of signification is eternally, and significantly, at stake... Jennifer Moxley's translation is smooth, provocative, and, given the density of the unique undertaking, remarkably lucid...Moxley's textual content constitutes a extraordinary and adventurous paintings in its personal right."
--Craig Watson, Poetry venture e-newsletter
"Risset's books of poetry are 'heterogeneous wholes,' and she or he unearths in clusters of traces and fragments of sentences 'cells' which, whilst 'freed from their typical contexts...link themselves to different cells..., with none hierarchical system.' this is often corresponding to her concept of 'disidentity,' or the experience of transcending one's personal identity...as predicate to writing. The cells not just mimic overheard language--they enact our fragmented notion, our translation of the world."
