New Poetry and Prose, 1991–2011

yves Bonnefoy

Translated by Hoyt Rogers

An eagerly awaited anthology of recent poetry
and prose by the celebrated French poet
Yves Bonnefoy

yves Bonnefoy, now 87 years old, has enjoyed during
the past two decades perhaps the most prolifc 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 sev-
eral works never published before and many that have
never been translated into English. The frst anthology
of Bonnefoy’s work to appear since 1995, this collec-
tion refects the poet’s powerful engagement with the
New England landscape, where quiet woods and felds
have given shape to the pared-down aesthetic of his
recent years.

The book is the frst to showcase not only the poetry for
which Bonnefoy is justly renowned but also his inven-
tive 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.

Masterfully translated by Hoyt Rogers, the collection
is organized chronologically, revealing clearly how the
poet continues to extend and refne his scope and style.
Rogers provides a penetrating introduction in which he
analyzes aspects of Bonnefoy’s recent writings and the
“second simplicity” that characterizes his late work.

yvES BoNNEFoy, poet, essayist, translator, and art historian, is
widely admired as France’s greatest living poet. He lives in France.
HoyT RoGERS’s poems, stories, and essays, as well as his translations
from French, German, and Spanish, appear in a wide variety of books
and periodicals. He lives in the Dominican Republic.
