0 Reviews

This selection of 51 poems makes the work of the Breton poet accessible to English-speaking readers for the first time and shows the qualities which have made Guillevic influential among younger poets today.


A poet in French himself, O’Meara has not only brilliantly and accurately translated Guillevic’s poetry but has brought together a significant collection of his poetry following the poet’s own arrangement and aesthetics. Guillevic has contributed an original, hitherto un­published élégie to the volume. O’Meara’s critical introduction (in French) will be useful to students of French literature.
