Note

Jarrell's music never ceases to confront the question of time. To stop on a chosen page, skip several lines, return, dream, reflect... It is an act of concentration in the present that makes what was the future pass into a state of time gone by...
"How then, are they, these two times, the past and the future, because the past is no longer and the future is not yet? As for the present, if it were always present, if it were not going to join the past, there would not be time, there would be eternity..."

Saint-Augustin,
The Confessions, Eleventh Book, Chapter XV
