by Yves BonnefoyBonnefoy is the one "member" of the Ephemere magazine group that I have a hard time really getting into. Also, when thinking about that, I realized that my openness to poetry might sit parallel (although constructed very differently) to the thing I hate most in terms of "criticism" to narrative—i.e. the idea of "relatability", which I think is an entirely moot point. When I say I couldn't "access" the work well regarding poetry, is that the same as when someone says they couldn't get into a narrative because they couldn't relate to it?Who knows.
Regardless, this collects two early Bonnefoy books, so I was excited to read his work in its original book form instead of excerpted. THE LURE OF THE THRESHOLD is easily my favorite work of Bonnefoy's that I've yet encountered, it dances at the void with a quiet intensity—admittedly never quite matching the violence of du Bouchet or Dupin, but exploring similar territory nonetheless.
