With Each Clouded Peak
Beginning with personal remembrances, experiences, and feelings, prize-winning Australian poet Friederike Mayrocker adds linguistic material collected from a variety of other sources (which through the years she gathered on pieces of paper) to create a grand collage subject to the permutations, repetitions, and rediscoveries of everyday life. The result is a magnificent text that does not easily fit into any genre, as it straddles autobiography, essay, fiction, and poetry.
