Women’s Poetry in France, 1965–1995

$17.95

As the first North American anthology of French women’s poetry ever published, Women’s Poetry in France, 1965–1995 can radically open and alter our perception of recent French poetry. Michael Bishop’s translations capture the distinctive voices of these twenty-eight poets, including such well-known writers as Anne-Marie Albiach, Andrée Chedid, and Marguerite Duras, as well as others who had been unjustly neglected even in their own country. Bishop’s translations free the poems themselves to justify their place, not only in this bilingual volume but also in the realm of international poetry.

In French and English; selected and translated by Michael Bishop

Includes poetry by Andrée Chedid, Heather Dohollau, Françoise Hàn, Joyce Mansour, Claire Laffay, Marguerite Duras, Janine Mitaud, Hélène Cadou, Claudine Helft, Silvia Baron Supervielle, Marie-Claire Bancquart, Vénus Khoury-Ghata, Anne Teyssiéras, Denise Le Dantec, Claude de Burine, Louise Herlin, Jacqueline Risset, Anne-Marie Albiach, Denise Borias, Jeanne Hyvrard, Martine Broda, Jeannine Baude, Marie Étienne, Marie Redonnet, Claire Malroux, Esther Tellermann, Michelle Grangaud, and Céline Zins


Reviews 

“Few such anthologies exist.”

“No one has done more than Michael Bishop to bring to the attention of interested readers the extraordinary range and diversity of contemporary women poets in France.”
