In André du Bouchet: Poetic Forms of Attention, Emma Wagstaff provides the first book-length study in English of this major poet of the second half of the twentieth century. She shows how Du Bouchet’s rigorous and innovative creative and critical writing advances our understanding of attention.

Du Bouchet is known as a post-war poet of the natural world and the space of the page. Far from just a solitary writer, however, he engaged with others through his work as editor, critic, and translator, and his involvement in the protests of May 1968. Emma Wagstaff shows how his writing demonstrates nuanced attention to language, time, nature, and art, and incites a ‘slow’ response on the part of the reader.

Emma Wagstaff is Senior Lecturer in French at the University of Birmingham. Her research focuses on modern and contemporary French poetry and on the interactions between literature and the visual arts in France.  

Emma Wagstaff est maîtresse de conférences à l’université de Birmingham, Angleterre, où elle poursuit des recherches dans les domaines de la poésie moderne et contemporaine, et les relations entre la littérature et les arts plastiques.
