About the Book:
Approche de la Déesse is a selection of poems in French translation in a bilingual English/French edition. The poems are inspired largely by a long love affair with Greece – both modern and ancient – and by the throb of mythology. The poems have been rendered with precision and sensitivity by my translators, who have proven as dedicated as they are talented. The publisher, Alidades, has done a superb job of presenting the poems in a special edition. Approche de la Déesse is available from Alidades.
