Paul Eluard

Back Road Chalkie
translated by Samuel Beckett


The downpour the other evening almost washed the chalkboard clean, despite its roof, and its location underneath the towering and protected tamarack, but Eluard remained. This is one of Samuel Beckett translations from his Collected Poems. Some of the most stunning love poems Eluard ever wrote.
