Newness

Posted in Uncategorized by Yvette Siegert on Wednesday, 6 January 2010

This is my new blog, Gravity on Zembla. Welcome!

New year, new blog.

From Dante, La Vita Nuova, trans. Slavitt:

In that part of the book of my memory before which very little is legible, there is a passage with the rubric that says: Incipit vita nova. (A new life begins.) Below the rubric I find written the words which it is my intention to collect in this little book–or, if not all of them, then at least their general meaning.
