A classicist by profession as well as a poet, Carson has drawn on antiquity for her cast, updating the myth of Geryon and Herakles.

In the original version, of course, Herakles killed the red-skinned, winged Geryon. In Carsons very contemporary retelling, he merely inspires, but does not return, the monsters passion. By choosing Geryon as her central character, Carson can bring up the questions of existence as if they hadnt been asked before.

After all, the monsters instincts have not been numbed by civilization. Fires twist through him. We feel the pain of learning the most elementary things, and then the volcanic intensity that comes with that more advanced thing, love. Yet Carson doesnt so much tell the story of Geryons love as mediate his very being through semiological surfaces: cafes, video stores, lipstick, a library where he shelves government documents with a forlorn austerity, / tall and hushed in their ranges as veterans of a forgotten war.

Carson seldom satisfies herself with an image of the world. Instead she atomizes the world, leaving it broken down, refracted, and glinting. At times her verbal pyrotechnics manage to render pure energy: A little button at the end of each range activated the fluorescent track above it.A yellowing 5 x 7 index cardScotch-taped below each button said EXTINGUISH LIGHT WHEN NOT IN USE.Geryon went flickeringthrough the ranges like a bit of mercury flipping the switches on and off.The librarians thought hima talented boy with a shadow side.No novelist could have gotten away with that last line.

Yet its very much to the point: Carsons Geryon is, among other things, a camera freak who doesnt understand that an observer must inevitably alter the nature of the thing observed. Here is Heisenbergs uncertainty principle, cheek-by-jowl with the ancients! And indeed, Carsons achievement is to interweave the archaic and the modern so seamlessly that by the time we finish reading Autobiography of Red, the entire landscape looks inside out. --Mark Rudman
