de Guy Jean, traduit en anglais par Katie Farris et Ilya Kaminsky, Marick Press, Grosse Pointe Farms, MI, USA, 2e édition (couverture rigide et souple) 2013.

A poet whose work combines the centuries old Acadian tradition with contemporary French poetics, Guy Jean gives us here a haunting work of unforgetable lyricism. These poems are unafraid to play, but also give their reader a mythic sense of place and belonging. In these gorgeous translations by Katie Farris and Ilya Kaminsky, English readers will discover the poet who has been called “present-day Villon.”

 

A whisper. A whisper. A whisper
I have left on her skin

Come morning: it is her scent I hear
under my work clothes.
