In selecting St.-John Perse to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature [1960] the committees have chosen to honour the work of the most senior of European poets. Since the death of Boris Pasternak it is hard to think of any other major poet whose characteristic published work stretches from 1909 (Images à Crusoé) to the present day (Chronique), and this in itself is not without significance in any estimate of his achievement. St.-John Perse is often (and rightly) described as an epic writer--a rare phenomenon these days ... The poetry of St.-John Perse is the monument he has raised to his own fame and to a difficult humanism. Honouring him, we honour ourselves. --Encounter

Nechte se unášet jako plavec, jenž s tváří ovinutou chaluhami a opojený vůní soli se poddává kolébání vln a proplouvá dnem, a náhle s úžasem spatří hvězdu a pochopí, že už je večer."
