Product Description

Poetry. Philosophy. New and revised edition of an early work by the Governor General's Award-winning poet. On the occasion of the press's 40th anniversary, Brick Books is proud to present the last of our six new editions of classic books from our back catalogue. This edition of WITTGENSTEIN ELEGIES features an expansive Introduction by Sue Sinclair, a new Afterword by the author and a new cover and design by the renowned typographer Robert Bringhurst. First published in 1986, WITTGENSTEIN ELEGIES is a polyphonic poem in five parts. It establishes the parameters of a long conversation between logic and the lyre that has continued over multiple books and in multiple genres. Long out of print, this revised edition is both a must-have for Zwicky's readers and a perfect introduction to her work.

Only what is simple is hidden:
the leaf in spring,
this gesture, the mind
of God.


—"The Death of George Trakl"

Praise for WITTGENSTEIN ELEGIES:

"Zwicky shows us that there is a way of speaking that leaves room for what cannot be spoken."—Sue Sinclair, from the Introduction.
