About the author

Anne-Marie Albiach was one of France's most distinguished poets in the second half of the 20th century, and a pioneer of the post-1960 avant-garde. Born in 1937, she lived near Paris for most of her life, and died in 2012. She was the author of Flammigère (Siècle à mains, 1967), État (Mercure de France, 1971), Mezza Voce (Flammarion, 1984), Anawratha (Spectres familiers, 1984), "Figure vocative" (Fourbis, 1991) and Figurations de l'image (Flammarion, 2004). She also translated poetry by Louis Zukofsky and Keith Waldrop.

Most of her poetry has been translated into English by Keith Waldrop and is available in book form in the USA from Post-Apollo Press. The most recent such volume is Figured Image (2006). Also available in the UK is "Vocative Figure", translated by Anthony Barnett and Joseph Simas (Allardyce Book, 1992).
