In this collection of poems, Rosina Neginsky reveals concepts and images that shimmer and captivate us. In her poetic universe, love and death coexiste; fairy tales play an important role: grey wolves, mermaids, tsarinas who rule over islands appear in her poems. The ekphrastic poems inspired by the pictorial works, and literary poems inspired by literary images, are enriched by the presence of free associations, legends, and the intense emotions of the interior life of the poems' lyrical hero. Several make a reference to doubles, often there is no border between silence and the uttered speech, between self and non-self. The editorial presentation of poems allows to see the correspondence between various linguistic versions. In Rosina Neginsky's poetry, parallelism, whenever it is respected, does not come only from a faithful translation process but it is often born from her multilingualism, which predates the birth of her poems.
Dans ce recueil de poèmes, Rosina Neginsky laisse apparaître des notions et des images d'un sens qui miroite et qui nous captive. Cette sélection de 35 poèmes ici présentée permettra aux lecteurs de goûter la poésie d'une poète américaine encore peu connue en France.
