The Book of Giulio Camillo is a sequence of poems dedicated to the art of memory. The poems are an homage to Giulio Camillo Delminio (1480-1544), one of the most famous unknown men of the Italian Renaissance. He invented a "theater of memory," consisting of a model amphiteater into which a single spectator would insert his head and gaze not toward the stage, but toward the amphitheater's seven rows of seats. It included all branches of knowledge and a method to memorize them. Caulfield's sevenfold sections of seven tercets enact, rather than describe, Camillo's theatre. In limpid and piercing verses, Caulfield moves her narrating voice -- detached in the manner of Beckett or Borges -- from an initial state of receptivity to a point of plenitude. The book is in three languages, English (translated by Mary G. Berg in collaboration with the author); Spanish; and Italian (translated by Pietro Civitareale).
