Carcanet publishing house is about to issue Prose, a wide-ranging selection of Bonnefoy’s essays on literature, art and life, translated into English. On this occasion, we offer you an in-house reading of an extract of his iconic text, both in French & in English! See also an interview of the poet on our blog on Culturethèque.
