Anne Carson is a poet, essayist, and translator, as well as a professor of classics and comparative literature at the University of Michigan. She remarks in her preface to the book, “There is in Euripides some kind of learning that is always at the boiling point. It breaks experiences open and they waste themselves, run through your fingers. Phrases don’t catch them, theories don’t hold them, they have no use. It is a theater of sacrifice in the true sense. Violence occurs; through violence we are intimate with some characters on stage in an exorbitant way for a brief time; that’s all it is.”

Limited edition of 150. The dimensions are 7” x 10”. Using an antique letterpress, the broadsides were printed from copper plates on Twinrocker handmade papers in two colors, Cripple Creek and Sagebrush. They were then scorched with smoldering tea leaves and a butane torch.
