Louis-Renе des Forеts
Ostinato. Poеmes de Samuel Wood (Ostinato. Poems Of Samuel Wood)


The book of French writer Louis-René des Forêts (1918-2000) includes his prosaic work «Ostinato», combining the features of autobiographical novel, lyrical fragment and essay, in which the author contemplates language, memory, writing, old age and death. These themes are also central for his long poem «Poems Of Samuel Wood». Thanks to an experimentalist form chosen by L. R. des Forêts, he has managed to reach the ideal of every true man of letter: unite his speech and his life.
