In her first collection in five years, Anne Carson contemplates "decreation"-an activity described by Simone Weil as "undoing the creature in us"-an undoing of self. But how can we undo self without movingthroughself, to the very inside of its definition? Where else can we start? Anne Carson'sDecreationstarts with form-the undoing of form. Form is various here: opera libretto, screenplay, poem, oratorio, essay, shot list, rapture. The undoing is tender, but tenderness can change everything, or so the author appears to believe.
