Edited by Mary Ann Caws
Translated by John Ashbery


This is a well organized book of translations of French cubist poet, Pierre Reverdy. Just out from the NYRB Poets series, this collection has some of the usual suspects of Reverdy translation such as Kenneth Rexroth (now back in print here mind you) and Ron Padgett, but also some exciting translations by John Ashbery and Frank O'Hara, which is worth the price alone. Reverdy's poems are stripped down, with lines often simply containing objects of a still-life with touches of far-reaching magical energy. ––Recommended by Jackson, City Lights Books
