Women's Poetry in France, 1965-1995: A Bilingual Anthology
Wake Forest University Press, 1997 - Poetry - 392 pages
Women's Poetry in France, 1965-1995 is the first bilingual anthology of modern French women poets yet published. Michael Bishop's translations are true to each of the twenty-eight distinctive voices in this volume. His translations thereby free the poems themselves to justify their place, not only in this bilingual volume but also in the realm of international poetry. This anthology could reshuffle canons, alter the international perception of French poetry, and bring pleasure to many individual readers.
