Review:

"This is an outstanding translation. Revell renders the French in just the right idiomatic language." --Marjorie Perloff on "The Self-Dismembered Man "and "Alcools: Poems"

"["Last Verses"] provides a new translation of what many consider the first free verse poetry in French, rendered beautifully by American poet and translator Revell." --"Publishers Weekly "(June 27, 2011)

"He brings to his Rimbaldian projects an enviable range of knowledge, as well as a warm attachment to the work and a strong technique." --Fred Chappell, " Asheville Poetry Review v.17 #1 "on" A Season in Hell"

"Contemporary poet Donald Revell gives us a vivid and vibrant interpretation of Apollinaire's masterpiece." --"Virginia Quarterly Review" on" The Self-Dismembered Man "and" Alcools: Poems"

"Woe to those readers who are doomed to read Rimbaud only in French, for in addition to giving us a bracing translation of "Une Saison En Enfer", Donald Revell has given birth to a great poem." --"James Longenbach" on" A Season in Hell"

About the Author:

Among the most innovative of poets in the French language, JULES LAFORGUE was an important influence on the young T S Eliot and called and "exquisite poet" by Ezra Pound. Called both part-symbolist and part-impressionist, his associative method, speech-rhythms and heterogeneous diction make him one of the most individual French poets. Laforgue died at the age of 27 in 1887. DONALD REVELL is Professor of English & Director of Creative Writing programs at UNLV. Thief of Strings is his tenth poetry collection, published by Alice James. Donald Revell's previous translations include The Illumninations by Arthur Rimbaud, and A Season in Hell by Arthur Rimbaud, both of which were published by Omnidawn. A Season in Hell won the PSA translation award. His books of essays include Invisible Green: Selected Prose, published by Omnidawn. He serves as poetry editor of Colorado Review. Revell lives in the desert south of Las Vegas with his wife, poet Claudia Keelan, and their children Benjamin Brecht and Lucie Ming.

Book Description Omnidawn Publishing, United States, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: French. Brand new Book. The Last Verses of Jules Laforgue is the first full-length collection of free verse published in the French language and, in many ways, it remains far in advance of any free verse innovations conjured in the past one hundred years and more. Laforgue, in his famous Complaints and Harlequinades, was a profound influence upon such Modernist poets as Eliot and Pound. Yet in his Last Verses he set a precedent which no one as yet has managed to emulate or to advance. Why should this be? Simply put, Last Verses does not reject poetic formalism but, rather, projects it into uncharted and unvoiced regions of spiritual and sexual extremity. The freedom of these poems rests entirely in the purity of their despair, a purity not to be measured by any extant means. This music is made by no instrument but itself. This music is made on the farther shore of death. Seller Inventory # BTE9781890650544
