In other news, I got to witness the tail end of rehearsal for this event last night, which was awesome. And got to meet Anne Carson, one of my real intellectual heroes, and tell her how much I appreciate her having written Economy of the Unlost--undoubtedly the obscurest of her books (which she acknowledged, making me all the happier)--and talk to her a bit about it and Paul Celan. So that's cool.
