The French poet Saint-John Perse (1887-1975) succeeded, according to critic Roger Caillois, "in giving as a acene for his sholly spiritual chronicles a kind of supreme civilization, composed of the essence of those which history records and going beyond them in grandeur and majesty." In this bilingual edition of the Selected Poems, editor Mary Ann Caws has assembled extracts from all his major works—Anabasis, Praises, Exile, Rains, Snows, Winds, Seamarks, Chronique, Birds, and Song fro an Equinox, in translations by T. S. Eliot, Louise Varese, Denis Devlin, Hugh Chisholm, Wallace Fowlie, Robert Fitzgerald, and Richard Howard.
