Product Description & Reviews
Not only do you have a good selection from all of the most known poets but also a gateway into lesser known but very good poetry. Some people seem to have a problem with the literalness of the translations. I'm of the mindset tha Non obtrusive prose translations and a fantastic selection. I'm of the mindset that the less obtrusive the translation the better. There are very few Pounds out there who can carry out creative translation without doing serious damage to the original. I recently bought a volume of Jules Laforgue's work translated by Peter Dale. Nothing against the guy but he completely warped some of the poems in order to maintain metre and rhyme.
If you have no French then pick up or download a French-English dictionary, refer to it when you find the choice of English flat and you'll be fine. In addition, a lot of the more famous poems can be found being read on Youtube, that's a great way to get the music if you can't read the French originals.
