Yeats, in French

Of course you've always wanted to read Yeats in French, but hesitated, not knowing which translation to choose.  Well, you can get some advice about this matter straight away, and decide if you'd rather read Yeats translated by A. Minkowski, J-Y Masson, or Y. Bonnefoy, thanks to Patrick Hersant, "Les poèmes de W.B. Yeats: sur quelques traductions en français," Le Texte Etranger #6 (2009).

Yeats was also the focus of a conference held at the University of Lille (February 6-7, 2009).
