A poet of undeniable stature, Anna de Noailles was respected and beloved by France's literary and lay population alike, counting among her admirers Proust, Cocteau, and Colette. She was the only female poet of her time in France to receive the highest public recognition. Noailles constructed an original poetic world view, drawing inspiration from Greek paganism and Nietzsche's radical thought. Her work is often described as ecstatic, sensual, erotic, sometimes violent, and usually marked by a tragic undercurrent. This is the first anthology of her works to appear in English.
