Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Poetry. Translated from the French by Keith Waldrop. Claude Royet-Journoud is one of the most important contemporary French poets whose one-line manifesto: "Shall we escape analogy" marked a revolutionary turn away from Surrealism and its lush imagery. He explores the experience of loss as if absence were the threshold we have to cross to fully enter language.

About the Author

Claude Royet-Journoud was born in 1941, in Lyon. He edited the legendary journal Siècle à mains (with Anne-Marie Albiach and Michel Couturier, 1963-70) and, later, "A," Zuk, and L'In-plano. He has been a champion of American poetry since the sixties, when he translated George Oppen and published John Ashbery and Louis Zukofsky. His central work is the poetry tetralogy FOUR ELEMENTAL BODIES, consisting of Reversal, The Notion of Obstacle, Objects Contain the Infinite, and Natures Indivisible.
