Synopsis: Poetry. Bilingual Edition. Translated from the French by Nancy Naomi Carlson. "Early Surrealist, resistance fighter, anti-nuclear activist, and exquisite poet, Rene Char is at the heart of 20th century French poetry.... Carlson gives English-language readers a real sense of Char's depth and breadth. And her masterful translations catch the barely contained drama that gives Char's work such tension and presence"--Cole Swensen.

About the Author: Rene Char (1907-1988) is among the most crucial of twentieth-century writers. An early Surrealist and close friend of the visual artists Braque, Giacometti, and Picasso, during World War Two he was a leader in the underground French Resistance and later an ardent opponent of nuclear technology. His poetry confronts the moral, political, and artistic challenges of modernity with a prophetic eloquence comparable to the poet-philosophers of ancient Greece. Nancy Naomi Carlson earned a B.A. from Queens College and a Ph.D. from the University of Maryland. Her Char translations have appeared in many excellent journals; her poetry chapbook Complications of the Heart won the 2002 Robert Phillips Prize from Texas Review Press, and her book of poems Kings Highway won the 1997 Writer s Publishing House competition. She teaches at The Writer's Center in Bethesda, Maryland.

Book Description Tupelo Press, United States, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Bilingual. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. A new bilingual (French-English) edition of Selected Poems from one of the 20th Century s most majestic poets. Acclaim for Carlson s work has included accolades from Donald Revell, poet and translator of Rimbaud and Apollinaire: Rene Char is the conscience of modern French poetry and also its calm of mind. Nancy Naomi Carlson, in these splendid translations, casts new light upon the sublime consequence of Char s poetic character, and in Stone Lyre the case for sublimity is purely made. And Cole Swensen, poet, translator, and founding editor of La Presse, has said: Early Surrealist, resistance fighter, anti-nuclear activist, and exquisite poet, Rene Char is at the heart of 20th century French poetry. In this insightful selection from across his long career, Carlson gives English-language readers a real sense of Char s depth and breadth. And her masterful translations catch the barely contained drama that gives Char s work such tension and presence, while her excellent ear picks up not only the sound relationships that weave through the originals, but also their delicate, seductive rhythms.
