Defying Fate

Maurice Carème

Defying Fate

Carème is considered to be one of Belgium's master poets, and 'Defying Fate' (published posthumously) is a fascinating introduction to his work. These charming poems are short, often metrical and given to rhyme, and deal with familiar subjects (children, death, God, the troubled mind) that resonate with a shared emotion and aesthetic satisfaction.

Words Have Frozen Over

Claude de Burine

Words Have Frozen Over

Underlying the remarkable combination of image and pattern in these poems, there is also a recognisable human context - childhood, intimate relationships, aging, loss, Aids, the Niverais landscape of her youth, the bars of the city, the town hall are all present.
