THE WORLD CUT OUT WITH CROOKED SCISSORS
'The World Cut Out with Crooked Scissors' consists of translations of prose poems from Carsten René Nielsen’s books of poetry published 1998-2005: 'Circles' (1998), 'Clairobscur' (2001) and 'Forty-One Animals' (2005) translated by American poet David Keplinger.
