About the Author
Yves Bonnefoy has published numerous studies of literature and art, as well as an extensive dictionary of mythology. His work has been translated into many languages, and he is a celebrated translator of Shakespeare and Yeats. He lives in Paris.
"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--more than half a century now, and still counting. These recent poems, superbly translated by Hoyt Rogers, attest to his enduring greatness." --Paul Auster
"I have been deeply impressed, reading Hoyt Rogers' translations of Yves Bonnefoy's Les Planches Courbes. They are much more than English versions of these strong and delicate originals--they are recreations that become distinct poems in English, a true and loving homage to their source." --Alastair Reid
