The geometry of life in prose and poetry by a French mathematician. In The End of Clouds, he writes: "Solitude suited them. Not that they were faltering, but there are different ways of sliding across the sky. I would never have thought that such soft, cottony concentration could be reconciled with such an exigent geometry. But how, without any support, consent to dissolution?" By the author of Some Thing Black
Lavish absence : recalling and rereading Edmond Jabès by Rosmarie Waldrop( Book )

5 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Edmond Jabes (1912-1991) is widely regarded as one of France's most important writers of the 20th century. Born in Cairo, he settled in France after being expelled from Egypt with other Jews during the 1956 Suez Crisis. Rosmarie Waldrop is Jabes's primary English translator. Over the course of her long association and friendship with Jabes, Waldrop developed a very nuanced understanding of his work that in turn influenced her development as both writer and translator. Lavish Absence is a book-length essay with a triple focus: it is a memoir of Jabes as Waldrop knew him, it is both an homage to and an explication of Jabes's work, and it is a meditation on the process of translation

Reluctant gravities by Rosmarie Waldrop( Book )

12 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This influential avant-garde doyenne. . . handily manages the paradox of the lucid enigma. . . She maintains a distinctly American voice--quick-witted, conversational, and visually concrete. . . a poetry that pleases no less than it puzzles. --Voice Literary Supplement
Blindsight by Rosmarie Waldrop( Book )

5 editions published between 1998 and 2003 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first, "Holderlin Hybrids," resonates against the German poet's twisted syntax, while using rhythmic punctuation in counterpoint to sense. "As Were'" says Waldrop, began with looking at the secondary occupations of artists - for example, Mallarme teaching English, Montaigne serving as mayor of Bordeaux - but this soon gave way to playing more generally with particular aspects of historical figures." The title section, Blindsight," is most consistent in its use of collage, juxtaposing words and images to jolting, epiphanic effect. "Cornell Boxes," in contrast, has a formal unity, inspired by the constructions of Joseph Cornell, each prose poem "box" composed in a structure of fours: four paragraphs of four sentences each, with four footnotes."--Jacket

Gap gardening : selected poems by Rosmarie Waldrop( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rosmarie Waldrop says Gap Gardening 'spans forty years of exploring the language I breathe and move in and that continues to condition me even while I try to contribute to it. It tracks my turn from verse to prose poems, to focusing on the sentence and its boundaries, my increasing reliance on collage and source texts as a way of engaging with other voices, of being in dialogue.' Gap Gardening also traces Waldrop growing sense of writing as an exploration of what happens in between. Between words, sentences, people, cultures. Between fragment and flow, thinking and feeling, mind and body. For the first time, we have a complete and clear view of the work of a great and inquiring, brave and indispensable poet."--
The form of a city changes faster, alas, than the human heart : one hundred fifty poems (1991-1998) by Jacques Roubaud( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Composed of 150 poems, with a title taken from Charles Baudelaire's Les Fleurs du Mal, and partly a response to the poetry of Raymond Queneau, this collection explores Jacques Roubaud's many poetic modes. He skips from the strict form of the sonnet to the freedom of prose poetry without abandoning the melancholy playfulness that has defined his lengthy writing career. A selection of Roubaud's best recent work, The Form of a City describes not only Paris, but also its people, its writers (and those of the Oulipo in particular), its monumental past, and its unsteady response to change."--Publisher's website

Driven to abstraction by Rosmarie Waldrop( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Driven to Abstraction is Rosmarie Waldrop's sixth collection of poetry with New Directions. The first of its two sections, "Sway-Backed Powerlines," consists of five sequences of lyrical prose poems whose subject matter ranges from voyages of discovery and the U.S. invasion of Iraq to geometry, memories of her father, and the music of John Cage. Part two, the title sequence, explores the ways abstraction has shaped the West, beginning with the Renaissance when zero was introduced in arithmetic, the vanishing point in perspective, and imagery money in economics. These poems are among Waldrop's most engaging and thrilling to date, the lines of a master poet shaping philosophy as poetry and poetry as philosophy. --Book Jacket
