Henri Michaux is widely recognized as a major twentieth-century French poet and painter. Although his fascination with universal languages has attracted critical attention, it has up until now been treated as a marginal concern. This study argues that Michaux's ideas on universal languages are central to an understanding of his works.

The essays in this volume consider a range of negotiations around francophone identity in Canada (Quebec, Acadia, Ontario, Saskatchewan), in the Caribbean, in Belgium and in Switzerland, and also with regard to Jewishness within European and Canadian "francophonie." Their arrangement, starting with the Americas and concluding with Europe, provides a structural foregrounding of the shifting emphasis of the margins/centre debate, which also serves to resituate the more occulted, but no less significant, uncertainties of minority francophone cultures in Europe. Ce recueil d'essais examine les negociations variees autour de l'identite francophone au Canada (Quebec, Acadie, Ontario, Saskatchewan), aux Antilles, en Belgique, en Suisse, et dans l'ecriture juive francophone de l'Europe et du Canada. Prenant les Ameriques comme point de depart et l'Europe comme point de chute, il met en relief, de par cette organisation, l'accentuation changeante du debat entre les marges et le centre, tout en resituant du meme coup les incertitudes plus cachees mais non moins significatives des cultures francophones minoritaires de l'Europe."

Frank O'Hara's poetry evokes a specific era and location: New York in the fifties and early sixties. This is a pre-computer age of typewritten manuscripts, small shops and lunch hours: it is also an age of gay repression, accelerating consumerism and race riots. Hazel Smith suggests that the location and dislocation of the cityscape creates 'hyperscapes' in the poetry of Frank O'Hara. The hyperscape is a postmodern site characterised by difference, breaking down unified concepts of text, city, subject and art, and remoulding them into new textual, subjective and political spaces. This book theorises the process of disruption and re-figuration which constitutes the hyperscape, and celebrates its radicality.

From the distinguished polymath George Steiner comes a profound and illuminating vision of the inseparability of Western philosophy and its living language. With his hallmark forceful discernment, George Steiner presents in The Poetry of Thought his magnum opus: an examination of more than two millennia of Western culture, staking out his claim for the essential oneness of great thought and great style. Sweeping yet precise, moving from essential detail to bracing illustration, Steiner spans the entire history of philosophy in the West as it entwines with literature, finding that, as Sartre stated, in all philosophy there is “a hidden literary prose.” “The poetic genius of abstract thought,” Steiner believes, “is lit, is made audible. Argument, even analytic, has its drumbeat. It is made ode. What voices the closing movements of Hegel’s Phenomenology better than Edith Piaf’s non de non, a twofold negation which Hegel would have prized? This essay is an attempt to listen more closely.”

Much poetic writing in France in the post-1945 period is set in an elemental landscape and expressed through an impersonal poetic voice. It is therefore often seen as primarily spatial and cut off from human concerns. This study of three poets, André du Bouchet, Philippe Jaccottet and Bernard Noël, who have not been compared before, argues that space is inseparable from time in their work, which is always in transition. The different ways in which the provisional operates in their writing show the wide range of forms that modern poetry can take: an insistence on the figure of the interval, hesitant movement, or exuberant impulse. As well as examining the imaginative universes of the poets through close attention to the texts, this book considers the important contribution they have made in their prose writing to our understanding of the visual arts and poetry translation, in themselves transitional activities. It argues that these writers have, in different ways, succeeded in creating poetic worlds that attest to close and constantly changing contact with the real.
