Book summary

Parallel French/English texts. Michaux is one of the notable travellers of modern French poetry; not only to the Amazon and the Far East, but into the strange hinterland of his own inner space. Fired by the same explorer's appetite, he has delved into the realm of mescaline and other drugs, and his wartime poetry, part of a private 'resistance' movement of extraordinary density and energy, has advertised his view of the poetic act as a form of exorcism.
