In Chantal Bizzini's poetry everything stirs, everything is alive. As our poet walks through Paris we hear the street noises of the city, and echoes of other bards who loved to stroll the City of Lights: Baudelaire, Apollinaire, Léon-Paul Fargue. Chantal is the quintessential contemporary poet of cities and shorelines, of marketplaces and agoras, of Paris particularly, but also of Greece. Her songs are both elegant and edgy; her Paris becomes our city, too, with all its beautiful contradictions, its poverty and its spectacular modern sculptures. Chantal's poetry offers us layers of past and present, song and imagery are perfectly fused. She is also a photographer and collagist who has displayed her work in prominent Parisian galleries. We see and hear Paris, its surfaces, its secret inner life. Bilingual French-English edition.
