Description - Poetry, Etcetera by Jacques Roubaud

What is poetry today and how does it fit into our lives? Jacques Roubaud - the great French poet and fiction writer - explores these questions in a series of intelligent, personal and often humorous essays. Translated from the original French by Guy Bennett, the work is simultaneously a profound and highly readable work on language and meaning. Born in 1932, Roubaud is one of the most accomplished members of Oulipo, the workshop for experimental writing. He is a professor of mathematics and has published writing in genres including prose, theatre and poetry.
