Paroles Selected Poems
This is a new book. Condition: Brand New.
In the years immediately following World War II, Jacques Pr vert spoke directly to and for the French who had come of age during the German Occupation. First published in 1946 by Les Editions de Minuit, a press with its origins in the Underground, PAROLES met with enormous success, and there were several hundred thousand copies in print by the time these first translations in English were published by City Lights in 1958.
Today Pr vert speaks out in a voice still attuned to our times, for the human condition (which is always his focus) has not changed. In fact, man's inhumanity to man would seem to have intensified, making these poems ever more touching, ever more prescient.
Jacques Pr vert (1900-1977) was a French poet and screenwriter. His poetry is popular in French education and is films formed a part of the poetic realist movement.
