The Arrière-pays, Yves Bonnefoy / Stephen Romer

The Arrière-pays
Yves Bonnefoy

Translated by Stephen Romer – Seagull Books, 2012

Since the publication of his first book in 1953, Yves Bonnefoy has become one of the most important French poets of the postwar years. At last, we have the long-awaited English translation of Yves Bonnefoy’s celebrated work, L’Arrière-pays, which takes us to the heart of his creative process and to the very core of his poetic spirit.
Enriched by a new preface by the poet, this volume also includes three recent essays in which he returns to his original account of an ethical and aesthetic haunting, one that recounts the struggle between our instinct to idealize—what he deems our eternal Platonism—and the equally strong need to combat this and to be reconciled with our nature as finite beings, made of flesh and blood, in the world of the here and now.

Les Carnets d’Eucharis, projet d’un numéro papier

Les Carnets d’Eucharis
Projet d’un numéro annuel en version papier pour Février 2013

Les Carnets d’Eucharis, créés sur internet depuis 2008, sont un espace numérique sans but lucratif, à vocation de circulation et de valorisation des œuvres littéraires, de langue française et/ou étrangère, inédites ou tombées dans le domaine public. Faire partie d’un vaste projet de recherche et de reconnaissance dans les domaines des écritures contemporaines et des expressions visuelles (photographie, peinture, sculpture…). Publier, diffuser et promouvoir. Telles sont les principales visées des Carnets d’Eucharis, dontle rayonnement et la notoriété sur internet semblent être des éléments favorables à la création d’une revue imprimée : la publication d’un numéro annuel viendrait en complément des 4 carnets saisonniers gratuits et téléchargeables depuis

Le lancement de cette première édition annuelle est prévu pour février 2013 (pour un tirage de 250 à 300 exemplaires, et un volume d’environ 120 pages).

La création de cette revue papier entend fidéliser et élargir le lectorat internaute, et ainsi permettre une plus large accessibilité, autrement que par la lecture numérique.

Rilke in Paris

Rilke in Paris
by Maurice Betz, translated from the French by Will Stone, Hesperus Press, 2012

In the summer of 1902, a young unknown German-language poet named Rainer Maria Rilke, arrived in Paris with the intention of writing a monograph on the famous sculptor Auguste Rodin. From then on, Paris proved both a reliable base and an irresistible source of inspiration for Rilke. He was by turns arrested, appalled, tormented and inspired by the raw reality of the Parisian street, and the life he witnessed there gradually entered his writings, prefigured by prodigious letters and notes. These formed the basis of his prose masterpiece The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge, published in 1910. Maurice Betz was Rilke’s foremost translator into French and knew the poet personally. In 1941 he published an insightful essay around Rilke’s artistic relationship with Paris, concentrating on the fascinating and difficult evolution of The Notebooks. Already translated into other European languages, Rilke in Paris is now available in English translation for the first time.
