This Smoke that Carried Us by René Char


Maxine Kumin recommends
This Smoke that Carried Us, poems by René Char, translated by Susanne Dubroff: "This volume of selected poems, with a sensitive and informative introduction by Christopher Merrill, is an essential document of World War II. Many of these poems were written while parachutists were dropping behind enemy lines, but the subject matter, lyrical and surreal, is always poetry." (White Pine)
