Originally published in 1943 the poems in this work cover a period from 1920 to 1943. Or roughly to the time when Queneau was 17--so I would say it's patchy in spots. What is evident are many of the preoccupations and the experimentation that Queneau would become famous for. A few of the poems (though not all that many) are to be found as well in the Ted Savory translated collection as published by Unicorn. I liked it a lot--not sure if it is everyone's cup of tea though--so this is a cautionary recommendation. Being a huge Raymond Queneau I would recommend moreso reading at least some of his novels before delving into his poetry. ( )
