✏Twentieth Century French Poetry Book Summary : 'If the poet, in the words of +douard Glissant, is a "visionnaire du concret", this volume of close readings explores poetry as utterance situated between dream and reality without ascribing a mission to the poet or attempting to unearth hidden subtexts. These marvellously read poems follow the major currents of twentieth-century French and Francophone literature and go a long way to fulfilling the editors' desires to forge a new alliance between readers and poets.'-J Michael Dash, New York University 'This anthology will be a godsend to teachers and students and, indeed, to all lovers of modern French poetry. The editors' choice of poets and poems ranges from the powerfully canonical to the challengingly contemporary, and each of the commentators brings to their analysis a combination of deep and affectionate knowledge and illuminating new insights.'-Michael Worton, Vice-Provost and Fielden Professor of French Language and Literature, University College London

✏The Yale Anthology of Twentieth Century French Poetry Book Summary : Not since the publication of Paul Auster’s The Random House Book of 20th Century French Poetry (1984) has there been a significant and widely read anthology of modern French poetry in the English-speaking world. Here for the first time is a comprehensive bilingual representation of French poetic achievement in the twentieth century, from the turn-of-the-century poetry of Guillaume Apollinaire to the high modernist art of Samuel Beckett to the contemporary verse of scourge Michel Houellebecq. Many of the English translations (on facing pages) are justly celebrated, composed by eminent figures such as T.S. Eliot, Wallace Stevens, and John Ashbery; many others are new and have been commissioned for this book. Distinguished scholar and editor Mary Ann Caws has chosen work by more than 100 poets. Her deliberately extensive, international selection includes work by Francophone poets, by writers better known for accomplishments in other genres (novelists, songwriters, performance artists), and by many more female poets than have typically been represented in past anthologies of modern French poetry. The editor has opted for a chronological organization that highlights six crucial “pressure points” in modern French poetry. Accompanying the selections are a general introduction, informative essays on each period, and short biographical notes—all prepared by the editor.

✏An Introduction to Twentieth century French Literature Book Summary : In this accessible guide, Victoria Best explores the turbulent twentieth century in France through its literature, introducing the works that created fresh perspectives on the human condition in an age of rapid change and insecurity. Challenging and experimental, modern French writing reflects the problems of a culture transformed by sophisticated theoretical inquiry and violent historical events. Preoccupied with finding ways to express new extremes of experience, twentieth-century texts dramatise the realisation that stories provide a significant means of making sense of the world. The book provides an overview of the key literary movements and the major writers of prose, poetry and drama, from great novelists such as Proust, to great thinkers like Sartre, by way of controversial figures such as Genet, Beckett and Marguerite Duras.

✏20th century French Poems Book Summary : Stephen Romer has gathered together a hundred and fifty or so poems which provide an ideal introduction and guide to the extraordinary diversity of poetry in French in the last century. The first poem here was written in 1903, and the last in 1999, so the selection spans the entire period, revisiting the justly famous and introducing much newer voices for the first time. In most cases, the versions are by practising poets, and many of them have been newly commissioned. The selection is accompanied by an introduction in which Stephen Romer indicates the major figures and movements - and some minor ones - that together constitute a passionate, quarrelsome and prolix century of poetry. Among the poets and translators are: Paul Valiry/Paul Muldoon, Raymond Roussel/Mark Ford, Max Jacob/John Ashbery, St John Perse/T. S. Eliot, Valiry Larbaud/Alan Jenkins, Samuel Beckett, Philippe Jaccottet/Derek Mahon and Andri Velter/Marilyn Hacker.
