Bilingual French-English collections of The Uruguayan-born twentieth-century French poet, Jules Supervielle (1884-1960). This anthology contains ten tales and two chapters from the memoir "Uruguay", along with seventeen poems (some seemingly longer than his shortest tales). All poems appear bilingually, in French and English; prose appears only in English. His tales and poems are exhilarating, spun out as they are in his distinctive voice: transparent, forthright, tender, funny, poignant, sometimes bitingly satiric, by turns lyrical and abrupt
Jules Supervielle was born in Montevideo Uruguay in 1884 to French parents. He was raised partly in Uruguay and then in France (from the age of ten) after his parents had died. His formative years were spent in both countries and in his later life lived until he died in Paris in 1960.
