Argura by John Peck


Argura by John Peck

One phrase from Argura - imploded strophe dispersed canzone - sets an internalized choral impulse alongside a diffuse songlike one, the dispersed canzone still pledged to argument. This criss-cross defines a compositional zone which, though contemporary, does not grant automatic access: this finding may be the controlling one behind Argura . The work included falls on either side of Peck's Poems and Translations of Hi-Lo , published by Carcanet in 1991.
