Citizens of beauty : poems of Jean Sénac by Jean Sénac( )

11 editions published between 1967 and 2016 in English and French and held by 1,209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Now available in English for the first time, translated by the poet Jack Hirschman, this beautiful collection of poems by the Algerian poet Jean Sňac (1926-1973) was originally published when he was forty-one. Sňac represented the hope of the new generation of Algerians who were celebrating their independence from France after 130 years of colonialism, and in the tradition of Ren ̌Char and the early Albert Camus, he portrayed an Algeria whose land and people would finally sing with their own voice. Sňac celebrates revolution, love, and the body, beginning with the resonant verses: "And now we'll sing love / for there's no Revolution without love." He sang, as well, of beauty: "No morning without smiling. / Beauty on our lips is one continuous fruit."

"Poète rebelle à tous les conformismes, Jean Sénac fut un artiste engagé pour qui l'Amour allait de pair avec la Révolution. Il célébra la libération du désir, l'espoir d'un monde plus fraternel, et lutta contre le colonialisme et la censure jusqu'à son assassinat en 1973. Celui qui écrivait "je suis beau parce que je t'aime" conjugua l'amour sensuel avec le politique. Dans cette anthologie, il loue la terre et le peuple algérien dont il estimait faire partie."--Page 4 of cover

Albert Camus, Jean Sénac, or, The rebel son by Hamid Nacer-Khodja( Book )

6 editions published in 2004 in French and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While Albert Camus is an internationally acclaimed figure, Jean Šnac has struggled to gain recognition, even in France and Algeria. The correspondence between the Nobel Prize recipient and the young poet, documented in this illuminating collection, is a testimony to a little-known friendship that lasted for over a decade (1947-1958) and coincided with the escalating conflict between France and Algeria. Their letters shed light on a passionate conflict that opposed two men on two sides of the Algerian War. On one side, Camus distanced himself from an Algerian insurrection that was becoming increasingly violent. On the other, Šnac espoused the armed insurrection of the National Liberation Front and Algeria's right to independence and freedom. The exchange between Šnac and Camus allows for a deeper and more personal understanding of the Algerian conflict, and of the crucial role of writers, poets, and thinkers in the midst of a fratricidal colonial conflict. The letters translated here are also the intimate dialog between two men who had much in common and who shared a deep love for each other and for their homeland

The sun under the weapons, correspondence & notes from Algeria by Jean Sénac( Book )

6 editions published in 1957 in French and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The work and life of Algerian revolutionary and poet Jean Sénac has yet to be recognized in the Anglophone world. This chapbook presents three distinct periods in Sénac's life, tracing three representative moments in Algerian history through a collection of archival documents. The first part of the book is a translated selection from Sénac's 1957 manifesto The Sun Under the Weapons [Le soleil sous les armes], written in Paris at the height of the war. Addressed to both Algerian and French audiences, as well as his former friend Albert Camus (from whom he was estranged by political differences over the war), The Sun Under the Weapons is a poetic response to the violence tearing both societies apart. The second document is a series of unpublished letters Sénac exchanged with Algerian novelist Mohammed Dib from before the war (1951-1953), centered on the launch of a literary journal. Under the shadow of the encroaching war of liberation that would erupt in 1954, Sénac gathered younger and more established writers in a visionary attempt to forge a new and inclusive Algerian culture. The third document is comprised of notes Sénac took at a meeting of New Algerian poets in 1972, ten years after Algeria's independence. Here the poet as activist focuses all his powers on a common national project at a time when revolutionary ideas had reached an impasse. Though clearly situated in Algeria, Sénac was a citizen of the world and took his poetic models from Whitman, Rimbaud, Mayakovsky, Lorca, the Beats, and the Black Arts movement. These unique documents represent distinct genres and modes of intervention, from personal correspondence, political address, to the public mediation of poets, bringing attention to a major but largely unknown 20thcentury cultural figure."--Publisher's website (viewed 05/11/2015)
