Great Poetry but difficult when read in french 30 Mar. 2000
By Kim Dilda - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Dual language books, like this, are great ways to improve on language skills. I found this book to be a great way to improve my french comprehension. Poetry is difficult to read in foreign languages, even with dictionaries, because the images are often abstract and very hard to understand with using only the actual definitions of words. So with this book, having the english translation next to it was a great way to help my french, help my understanding of larger images, and enjoy the poetry itself. The poetry is beautiful. I really recommend this book.

A survey of French poetry and a fun way to hone Frenchskills 18 Feb. 2005
By Nicholas Soucy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a thin volume, but in it is a wonderful little collection of mini-bios and examples of the works of excellent French poets. As the title implies, the poems are in French on the left pages, and in English on the opposite sides.

Honestly, even if you aren't enthralled by poetry, this is a practical way to familiarize yourself with some colloquial (albeit sometimes antiquated) French language.

This is a cheap item ($7.00), and worthy of collection. The intro even has a brief lesson in metrical arrangement patterns.

I think this book serves well to illustrate how beautiful the French langague can be, especially when artfully manipulated by such historical talents as Victor Hugo and Voltaire.

4.1 stars.

Good, but could have been more thorough 11 Feb. 2006
By D. Miess - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Maybe this book's purpose is do be as concise as possible and give people a taste of French poetry. However, I thought that it could have delved a little further into certain writers and perhaps, created a fuller picture. However, from someone who bought the book a year and a half ago, it is wonderful to learn more about world literature and has certainly helped me do juist that.

French Poetry 2 Jan. 2008
By J. J. Cabere - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
An excellent tool for French-English speakers or English-French speakers who are interested in French poetry. The book gives a great overview of some of France's brightest minds in poetry from Voltaire to Baudelaire. A great tool to have in any French classroom or Francophile home as well. Enjoi.

Fine little introduction to French poetry 17 Sept. 2009
By language lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is pretty darn erudite, and has a nice selection given the brevity of the volume. The artless, straightforward translations are totally useful.
