Yves Bonnefoy, who will soon attain the age of ninety, has gratified his readers during the past two decades with the most prolific and innovative period of his splendid lifework. This volume presents in English and French an inviting array of his recent writings, carefully selected for their literary quality as well as their broad appeal. It features several works never published before and many that have never been translated into English. The first anthology of Bonnefoy's work to appear since 1995, this collection reflects the poet's powerful engagement with the New England landscape; its quiet woods and fields have helped to shape to the pared-down aesthetic of his recent years. The book is the first to showcase not only the poetry for which Bonnefoy is justly renowned but also his inventive compositions in prose. Appropriately, the book alternates more traditional verse with freer forms, just as the author has done in several major works of the past twenty years; that symbiotic approach is one of the hallmarks of this latter phase of his art. Superbly translated by Hoyt Rogers, the collection is organized chronologically, revealing clearly how the poet continues to extend and refine his scope and style. Rogers provides a masterly introduction in which he analyzes aspects of Bonnefoy's recent writings and the "second simplicity" that characterizes his late work.

Superb book, moving and haunting. a watershed. What is most impressive in this exquisite volume is the translator's unerring grasp of the French. So deeply does Hoyt Rogers understand every nuance of Bonnefoy's poetry and language that he is able to render its many levels of meaning while remaining absolutely faithful to the task of poetry. So many translators, misguided and deaf, give a sort of pale shadow of the original work. Not so in this book! Here, the English poems actually do justice to the French and allow the reader to experience Bonnefoy's unique stature. (One is reminded of Baudelaire's translations of Poe. By a soul-mate, a brother -- a poet of equal stature).

Yves Bonnefoy is recognized as one of the greatest of French poets. This French/English bi-lingual presentation of his recent compositions makes his work wonderfully available to English-language readers with little or no skill in French. If they like his style--which differs from and is often more subtle than much of American poetry--readers will find his writings herein to be interesting, perhaps even fascinating.

Worth reading if you have time to think about the poems you have read. Need working knowledge of French. Not for the beginner.

Magnificent! Having been introduced to Yves Bonnefoy's poetry online, I had to buy a book of his work. I discovered Second Simplicity to be an excellent review of Bonnefoy's recent work, I greatly appreciated getting a contemporary French view of modern poetry. Thank you! Merci beaucoup.

Bonnefoy is a brilliant poet, as always.

I do not like the translations, though, which depart
too far from the original. Of course, translation of
poetry, especially such refined, language-dependent
poetry as Bonnefoy's, is impossible.
