About the Author
Philippe Jaccottet is a major Swiss poet, critic, and the translator of works by Homer, Goethe, Hölderlin, Rilke, and Musil. Tess Lewis's numerous translations from French and German include works by Peter Handke, Jean-Luc Benoziglio and Pascale Brückner.
"At the center of Philippe Jaccottet's scrupulously honest writing lies the paradox of those imbricated, inextricable emotions that, on the one hand, can orient toward a sense of shame at what the world can generate, yet on the other can urge us to sing the stunning beauty of some quiet fragment of existence."--World Literature Today
