From the Contemporary Poetry Series #1
These are two poems in one volume by one of the leading French poets of the new generation whose work is now becoming known in the U.S.
Praise for Codicil and Plan for Pond 4
Emmanuel Hocquard, whether in fiction (Aerea in the Forests of Manhattan) or poetry (Theory of Tables), has always shied from the notion that what one says must really say something else and writes “directly from the circumstance.” The elegance and authority of his work comes from a perfect union of perception and grammar.
— Keith Waldrop
One of the best living poets in my opinion. Codicil is comparable to his sonnets.
