A life, a memory.A life spent wandering among a few poems—French as well as English, Italian, or German—in search of this “enlightened music” that might resonate with life’s meaning.Since the day when, feeling somewhat adrift, John E. Jackson was struck by one of Baudelaire’s sonnets, he has never stopped wondering what poetry is, and asking poets to help him better understand life’s simplest—yet also most fundamental—facts: love, friendship, sadness, the feeling of emptiness or of absence, or that of joy.These pages in which readers encounter Dante, Du Bellay, Shakespeare, Goethe, Hölderlin, Kleist, Nerval, Rimbaud, Mallarmé, Yeats, Eliot, Celan or Bonnefoy, delve into the facets of a life in which memory is not so much a step back as a movement that propels us toward a meaning yet to be known.
John E. Jackson, born in Cairo in 1945, formerly taught literature in Switzerland. Multilingual by training, he has dedicated some twenty critical works to traditional European lyrical and theatrical trends, and published eight poem anthologies.
