‘Nox is an epitaph in the form of a book, a facsimile of a handmade book Anne Carson wrote and created after the death of her brother. The poem describes coming to terms with his loss through the lens of her translation of Poem 101 by Catullus “for his brother who died in the Troad.” Nox is a work of poetry, but arrives as a fascinating and unique physical object. Carson pasted old letters, family photos, collages and sketches on pages. The poems, typed on a computer, were added to this illustrated “book,” creating a visual and reading experience so amazing as to open up our concept of poetry’ (Publisher’s note). ‘When my brother died, I made an epitaph for him in the form of a book. This is a replica of it, as close as we could get”
