AUTHOR

Bonnefoy, Yves, Naughton, John, Frank, Joseph

SUMMARY

The only collection of Yves Bonnefoy's criticism in English, this volume offers a coherent statement of poetic philosophy and intent--a clear expression of the values and convictions of the French poet whom many critics regard as the most important and influential of our time. The Introduction touches on many of the essays' concerns, including Bonnefoy's recourse to moral and religious categories, his particular use of Saussure's distinction between langue and parole, his early fascination with Surrealism, and his view of translation as "a metaphysical and moral experiment." The essays, published over a nearly thirty-year span, respond to one another, the more recent pieces taking up for renewed consideration ideas developed in earlier meditations, thereby providing the volume with integrity and completeness. Among the subjects addressed in these essays are the French poetic tradition, the art of translation, and the works of Shakespeare, of which Bonnefoy is the preeminent French translator.Bonnefoy, Yves is the author of 'Act and the Place of Poetry Selected Essays' with ISBN 9780226064499 and ISBN 0226064492.
