“Mais vint un second jour”. Pour Yves Bonnefoy

Michela Landi


This short article intends to honour the poet Yves Bonnefoy who died recently. His “passing away” as a perpetual movement seems to confirm his poetics of presence which he had been evoking throughout his life. The author addresses some aspects of Bonnefoy’s poetics of time as a perpetual threshold, involving decreation of symbols and concepts. Between them lie death and the grave.
