Reviews

"Mr. Bonnefoy [is] often lauded, and rightly so, as France's greatest living poet."--Micah Mattix, Wall Street Journal--Micah Mattix "Wall Street Journal"
"[A] handsome edition of Bonnefoy's recent work . . . a stunning presentation of a major poet."--Jim Kates, Arts Fuse--Jim Kates "Arts Fuse"
"Second Simplicity . . . reveal[s] Bonnefoy's remarkable inventiveness and desire to accommodate whatever form of address is called for, whether in verse or prose."--Ron Slate, On the Seawall--Ron Slate "On the Seawall"

"Yves Bonnefoy is one of the rare poets in the history of literature to have sustained the highest level of artistic excellence throughout an entire lifetime--now more than half a century of work, and still counting. These recent poems, superbly translated by Hoyt Rogers, attest to his enduring greatness."--Paul Auster
