Parler seul / Speech Alone

Poet: | Nationality: | Filmmaker:

A poem by the great Jean Follain, read by Nic S. for Pizzicati of Hosanna. The translation by W.S. Merwin is from his book-length selection of Follain poems, Transparence of the World, which belongs on every poetry lover’s bookshelf.

I don’t make any great claims for this video; I just wanted some Follain here at Moving Poems and no one else was envideoing him in English.
