Syllables of Flesh (Paperback)
Romania's Floarea Ţuţuianu is a fiercely sensual poet and visual artist, known for her provocative playfulness with words and images.
The 2007 recipient of the Lucian Blaga International Poetry Festival Prize, she is the only woman to be included in Bucharest's definitive anthology of contemporary poets, Manualul de literature. In Romania, she has published six books of poetry, and her words and images have traveled the world. Now, for the first time in the United States, her poems--masterfully translated by Adam L. Sorkin and Irma Giannetti--are gathered in this book, some with their original counterparts, paired with arresting photo plates wrought by the artist herself. Strange, ferocious, and lovely, her images and words leave a lingering echo.
