After Prévert by J. T. Barbarese

On After Prévert

Irreverent, spirited, deeply enjoyable.

—Jonathan Galassi

In After Prévert, the best poems from Prévert's landmark post-World-War-II collection Paroles come alive in Barbarese's snappy twenty-first-century American English. Like a good translator, Barbarese manages to convey the spirit of Prévert and his stark vision of the human condition, and like a good poet, Barbarese makes the poems new for our times.

—Geoffrey Brock, editor of The FSG Book of Twentieth-Century Italian Poetry
