In the Shadow’s Light

Translated by John Naughton
With an Interview with Yves Bonnefoy
This bilingual edition of the contemporary master’s fifth work, Ce qui fut sans lumi, re, will delight, engage, and stir all lovers of poetry. Included here is an extensive new interview with the poet in English translation.

"Included here is a very helpful and touchingly personal interview with the poet. . . . For readers with no prior knowledge of Bonnefoy’s work, this volume would be an excellent place to start."—Stephen Romer, Times Literary Supplement
