Contemporary French poetry is unique in that it places a great emphasis on language itself. In this book, Jean-Jacques Thomas and Steven Winspur focus on the linguistic aspects of recent poems written in French. From Apollinaire and Eluard to the Oulipians, from the spacialists to Yves Bonnefoy and Andrée Chedid, from Max Jacob and Saint-John Perse to Edouard Glissant and Denis Roche, this book analyzes the innovations crafted by more than fifty writers. With its eleven chapters and extensive bibliography, this is the most comprehensive English-language introduction to French poetry of the twentieth century.
