about this item

Cecile Perin (1877-1956) was born in Reims, France. Widely respected at a time in France when women poets were often ignored, she had her first book published in 1907. She went on to have some 20 plus volumes of her poetry published. Despite this widespread popularity, her work is virtually unknown in the United States. Norman R. Shapiro, multiple award winning and renowned translator, has taken it upon himself to put out the ultimate tribute book to Cecile Perin's poetry. This 720 page selected poems covers all of her published volumes, and presents it in a bi-lingual French-English format. Introductions and a preface provide the context of the poems and the book.
