Please take the time to read my interview with Jean Paulhan expert Professor Michael Syrotinski. I've already published Michael's wonderful, short profile of Jean Paulhan here on RSB and also his introduction to Paulhan's The Flowers of Tarbes. In our interview, Michael outlines further why Paulhan is such an important figure.
In the interview, Michael mentions a forthcoming anthology of Paulhan's collected essays (translated by Jennifer Bajorek) due soon from the University of Illinois Press. Actually, that translation is a collective effort: Jennifer translated a third of it, RSB interviewee Charlotte Mandell translated a third, and Éric Trudel (who teaches French literature at Bard College) translated a third.
