A la lumière d’hiver
By Philippe Jaccottet

Modern poetry :

Dos qui se voute
Pour passer sous quoi ? »

Dark meditation:
Autumn leafs, rain, cold wind,

Parmi les œuvres poétiques de langue française du XXe siècle, celle de Jaccottet est, après celle d'Henri Michaux, le sujet du plus grand nombre de thèses et de mémoires.
