AndrÉ FrÉnaud, Choix De PoÈmes / Selected Poems (1938-1986)
2008 0-7734-5194-3
André Frénaud is a massive presence in the French poetry of the second half of the twentieth century, a poet immersed in the dilemmas of his age: the collapse of values, the conflicts of conscience, the moral and political disorientation, the splintering of identity. The translations of the present anthology, which is the first wide-ranging presentation of Frénaud’s work in English, seek to convey the multi-colored nuances, the vigorous antitheses, the passionate to-and-fro, and the startling imaginative excursions of this adventurous and highly original poet.
