Images of the harsh mineral naked-ness of Dupin's native countryside run through the whole of his work and figure an existential nakedness. He is an ascetic who likes the bare and the simple; his poetry is sad, wise and relentlessly honest. Bilingual French-English edition, selected by Paul Auster.
