By Gustaf Sobin, René Char
Translated from the French via Gustaf Sobin.
When Gustaf Sobin arrived in France on the age of twenty-seven in 1963, he befriended the poet Rene Char, who, as Sobin writes, "taught me my trade." "Rene Char taught me, first, to learn details: that the meticulously saw aspect, drawn from nature, may provide the main to the inner most reaches of the imaginary. One and the opposite, the seen and the invisible, have been however the interface of a unmarried, singular, vibratory floor: that of the poem itself."
The Brittle Age and The Returning Upland are volumes from Char's paintings of the mid to overdue Nineteen Sixties that Sobin selected to translate in complete. right here, aspect through aspect with Char's French textual content, it's attainable to work out Sobin construction his poetic vocabulary inside of and as a result of perform of his mentor, "scrupulously monitoring the very trajectories of hope, [leading] one onto the sonorous landscapes of the revelatory."
Note: it is a google play books pdf. simply because no different Rene Char is out there digitally in English translation, and since no electronic publication of this name exists anyplace outdoor of google play books, and, my figuring out the writer, and realizing they're appreciably not likely to alter, I'm marking it retail, which you'll have spotted I don't frequently do for google play books, as they're scans, despite the fact that excessive the quality.
This is a striking publication not just for Char as writer, yet for Sobin as translator. Enjoy

Il fait bon lire Clément Marot aujourd'hui. Malgré les siècles qui nous séparent du " prince des poëtes françoys " c'est une voix familière qui nous parle, et qui n'a rien perdu de sa fraîcheur. Valet de chambre de François Ier et de Marguerite de Navarre, Marot est de ces courtisans qui flattent leur mécène en raillant leur propre flagornerie ; fervent défenseur de l'Évangile, il est de ces croyants qui jouent les bouffons pour révéler leur foi ; poète Protée insaisissable, il est aussi bien le traducteur des Psaumes que l'auteur de pièces badines comme l'éloge " Du beau tétin ". II a écrit des rondeaux, des ballades, des épigrammes, des coq-à-l'âne ; il a lancé l. a. mode du blason du corps féminin. Et, selon los angeles formule de Boileau, il a montré " pour rimer des chemins tout nouveaux ".
Ces Œuvres complètes proposent, pour los angeles première fois, une vue d'ensemble des différents recueils publiés par Marot de son vivant, présentés conformément à ses vœux : le lecteur y découvrira une succession d'éditions originales dont chacune, nourrie des précédentes, possède une logique propre, voulue par l'auteur, et que les éditions disponibles jusqu'à présent ne permettaient pas de saisir aussi clairement.
