"This book contains the first English translations of two long poems by one of Quebec's most outstanding and well-known literary figures. Roland Gigučre, painter and publisher, has been a leading actor in the literary and social events that have rocked Quebec in the last two decades. These poems, written in the fifties, are considered by critics to be among the most important works of the era. The poems are surrealistic prose poems, where the work and the image are inseparable. Gigučre's work has been characterized as 'despair and luminosity'. He is the recipient of many important literary awards in Canada." -from the rear cover. Faint corner crease to front cover, else very good. Due to its small size, shipping costs should be a bit cheaper than quoted. 16.00
