Paysage Intérieur

Book published in 1990 with a collection of poems written in French by the Belgian poet Marie-Jo Gobron (1916-2008), co-founder of Alcyon Film. Published by Saint-Germain-des-Prés (Paris) and Alcyon Film. This book is also available in deluxe edition.

"Marie-Jo Gobron nous livre ici des poèmes pétris comme des tailles douces, brefs, forts et drus. L'intelligence n'y écarte jamais la sensibilité et l'intuition. La culture, de même, fait bon ménage avec l'instinct. Le poète travaille dans le creuset de ses sensations. La nature et ses sortilèges l'illuminent, nourissant un atelier de métaphores qui disent le quotidien dans tous ses états, sereins ou inquiétants, pour mieux enchanter le réel. Il y a aussi un "accent" particulier, un style d'une belle efficacité, une invention, une imagerie tout à fait originales".
Saint-Germain-des-Prés (Paris, 1990).
