L. F. and Prevert

Posted to WritersAndGenres




Very nice! This past fall at a library book sale I bought 'Paroles' and 'Fatras' by Prevert, Gallimard Folio editions, for 25 cents each.

Didn't L. Ferlinghetti translate and publish Paroles or something by Prevert? I think so. And his poem "Tentative Description of a Dinner to Promote the Impeachment of President Eisenhour" takes off from Prevert's "Tentative de Description d'un Diner de Tete's a Paris-France."
