From a fountain where ‘all the roads in the village unite’, concentric circles expand into the distance: the young and old, fields, a river, a mountain – the fountain’s stone counterpart, where the roads end, human time superimposed on geological time. This title evokes a Mediterranean world with luminous precision.

Description

From a fountain where ‘all the roads in the village unite’, concentric circles expand into the distance: the young and old, fields, a river, a mountain – the fountain’s stone counterpart, where the roads end, human time superimposed on geological time. Renowned as a lyrical poet of austere intensity, in “A Village Life Louise Gluck” evokes a Mediterranean world with luminous precision. Her focus is on moments of speculation and reflection in a dreamlike present tense.
