Translated by Richard Howard

Editions

"For Perse these lines are brief, but they are as fine as anything he has done." With these words The Times Literary Supplement greeted the publication in France of the last four poems written by the Nobel Prize winner before his death in 1975. This volume provides their French texts with an English translation by Richard Howard, completing the publication in Bollingen Series of the collected poetry of St.-John Perse.

First published in 1977.
