  • Provisionality and the Poemby Emma Wagstaff

    Editions Rodopi 2006; US$ 67.20

    Much poetic writing in France in the post-1945 period is set in an elemental landscape and expressed through an impersonal poetic voice.

    The French administrative language of the European Union is an emerging discourse: it is only fifty years old, and has its origins in the French administrative register of the middle of the twentieth century, but it is also a unique contact situation in which translation has always played a pivotal role.
