Description - Words That Walk in the Night by Pierre Morency

Morency's subtlety of language gives us a heightened sense of the everyday that tells us something about our humanity. By focussing on the reality of familiar things, he reveals how we are constantly being reborn in different ways. In every word and every phrase nature is present in Words that Walk in the Night - even in the city. But Morency's poetry is never a restricted view of "city" or "nature." He shows us that just as we can inhabit a landscape, we can also inhabit poetry. Words that Walk in the Night is a translation of Les Paroles qui marchent dans la nuit , published by editions du Boreale (1994).
