Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Hugo Azérad and Peter Collier have put together a splendid text for the teaching of twentieth-century French poetry. The collection of poems and commentaries is extremely well conceived, with a broad spectrum of poets represented and a format offering an appealing array of full poems of every form and genre accompanied by close readings by prominent critics of every stripe....the book provides everything needed to guide both undergraduate and graduate students in the study of contemporary French poetry....Thus, I would strongly recommend this book not only as an ideal reader for all courses on modern French poetry, but also as a marvellous addition for other kinds of courses in modern French and/or comparative literature....There are no uninteresting pieces in the collection, and a remarkable proportion of the poems and critical readings are true gems."
—Mary Lewis Shaw, Journal of European Studies
