André du Bouchet

André du Bouchet (1924–2001) is widely acknowledged as one of the greatest French authors of the twentieth century. The poems translated here are from his earliest collection, Air (1951). Ten years later, with Dans la chaleur vacante, he rose to the forefront of international letters. In the late sixties he cofounded—with Yves Bonnefoy, Jacques Dupin, and Paul Celan—the influential literary journal L’Éphémère. Among many other honors, he was awarded the National Poetry Prize in 1983. (Updated 10/2012)
