A collection of creative essays on poetry and poetics by Philip Terry.
"Italo Calvino might be to blame for this book" claims the author Philip Terry. "I remember hearing that Calvino worked on lots of books at once so that they all moved forward very slowly. Recently I fell into a similar habit, starting more books than I was able to finish, and I hit on the idea of collecting these unfinished fragments together one day, under the title From. This book from Pamenar is a sample of that book, so we called it FROM FROM."
Philip Terry was born in Belfast, and is a poet, translator, and a writer of fiction. He has translated the work of Georges Perec, Michèle Métail and Raymond Queneau, and is the author of the novel tapestry, shortlisted for the Goldsmiths Prize. His poetry and experimental translations include , Dante's Inferno, and Dictator, a version of the Epic of Gilgamesh in Globish. The Penguin Book of Oulipo, which he edited, was published in Penguin Modern Classics in 2020, and Carcanet published his edition of Jean-Luc Champerret's The Lascaux Notebooks, the first ever anthology of Ice Age poetry, in April 2022.
