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

Saint-John Perse (seudónimo de Alexis Saint-Leger Leger) nació en la isla de la Guadalupe, vivió en China, en Francia y en Estados Unidos. Murío en 1975, a los ochenta años, después de una fecunda vida de diplomático, viajero y poeta. En 1960 recibió el premio Nobel. Su poesía es una especie de crónica del mundo y la nomenclatura de sus tesoros. Un alusiva y secreta, evocadora y alabatoria. Saint-John Perse es, sin duda, el más grande poeta épico contemporáneo, y Anábasis, la genuina expresión de esta épica. Considerado como uno de los poemas claves del siglo XX, Anábasis ha tenido admiradores de la categoría de Eliot (que lo tradujo dos veces), Walter Benjamin, Velery, Proust, Gide, Rilke, Breton

"For Perse these lines are brief, but they are as fine as anything he has done." With these words The Times Literary Supplement greeted the publication in France of the last four poems written by the Nobel Prize winner before his death in 1975. This volume provides their French texts with an English translation by Richard Howard, completing the publication in Bollingen Series of the collected poetry of St.-John Perse.
