|Dix poèmes d'Edgar Poe traduits par Alice Becker-Ho
Ten poems by Edgar Poe, translated by Alice Becker-Ho (Alice Debord).
There is no need to present Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849). This book is a very unique translation of ten of his poems (the most famous one being Annabel Lee) that had been previously translated by Stéphane Mallarmé in a precious style very remote from the spirit of Poe. Alice Becker-Ho's translation is both precise and moving. The selection here and the translation are obviously haunted by the theme of the lost of the loved one, central to Poe and to the translator.
