Where heat looms by André Du Bouchet( Book )

24 editions published between 1959 and 1996 in 3 languages and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Andre du Bouchet, born in 1924, is one of the last great modern French poets whose work remains untranslated. Only one small book, The Uninhabited, translated and published by Paul Auster, has appeared in English (Living Hand, 1975). Over the next few years, Sun & Moon Press has committed itself to publishing all the major books of poetry by this world-renowned author. That his work is so little known in English is strange, given that du Bouchet's life has been closely linked with American and English literature. At the age of 16, du Bouchet traveled to the United States, where he remained for eight years. He received a B.A. degree from Amherst College and an M.A. from Harvard, where he was teaching fellow in English and Comparative Literature. Upon his return to France, du Bouchet became a translator of English authors such as Shakespeare, Hopkins, and Joyce. He has also translated Holderlin, Celan, Madelstam, and Pasternak. Where Heat Looms (Dans la chaleur vacante) is an investigation of light and that which is associated with it: fire, white, wind, sky, air, sun, and flame. In this brilliantly lyrical collection, du Bouchet delights in the natural world while at the same time linguistically probing what he perceives: "Setting out again I start over this road doing so / well without me. A giddy firelight embedded in air, / air eddies over the sunken road; Every- / thing goes out. Already day's sheer heat."

Openwork : poetry and prose by André Du Bouchet( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and French and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"André du Bouchet, a great innovator of twentieth-century letters, has yet to be fully recognized by a wide circle of international readers. This inviting volume sets out to remedy the oversight, introducing a selection of du Bouchet's poetry and prose to English- language readers through the brilliant translations of Paul Auster and Hoyt Rogers. Openwork showcases pieces from the author's entire trajectory, beginning with little-known pieces from the 1950s, followed by major poems from the 1960s, and concluding with works written or rewritten in the poet's later decades. Throughout his life, du Bouchet devoted himself to long walks in his beloved French countryside, jotting down entries in notebooks as he rambled. These notebooks-more than one hundred all together-have emerged as signal works in their own right, and their musings are well represented in this anthology"--

"The victim was Gary Triano, a Tucson real estate developer with influential friends-and enemies. After finishing a round of golf at a country club, he went to the parking lot and found a gift in his car: a crudely made pipe bomb that blew him to pieces. The bomb-maker was Ron Young, a Colorado "bad guy" wanted on weapons and fraud charges. The prosecution claimed that the woman he was dating at the time promised to pay him four hundred thousand dollars to murder her ex-husband. Her name was Pamela Phillips, an Aspen socialite, divorcâee, and mother of Triano's two children. She received two million dollars upon his death but evaded suspicion for more than a decade. Finally, halfway across the globe in Austria, the blond bombshell was detained and sent home-igniting one of the most explosive cases in Arizona history."--Page 4 of cover

Au plus près de la terre et du poids des éléments, le parcours d'André du Bouchet se révèle en tous points exemplaire. La traversée de ses livres impose un mouvement violent, comme celui d'une faux qui ouvre la voie à une respiration plus vive. D'où cet ajour toujours renaissant dans la trame de ses textes, brèche imposée au souffle pour qu'il ne mente pas
