Including poems from the last 20 years and including selections from Le corps en tête, La dernière femme, Jardin des Vertiges, L'amoureuse intérieure, and Tomber du jour, this volume represents the poet's personal voyage into self-revelation without fear. Through simple, powerfully sensual images, these poems convey the lyricism of survival, and the span of time from which they are culled gives a comprehensive sense of the development of this essential voice of Quebecois literature.
