French Poetry Writing

Workshops

SATURDAY, APRIL 24th

2-4pm PST / 5-7pm EST

For this first installment of Coucou’s French Poetry Workshop hosted by Claire, we will read and dive into the poem Liberté (Freedom) by Paul Éluard, one of the founders of the surrealist movement. During WWII, he was the author of several poems against Nazism that circulated clandestinely. He became known worldwide and is considered the most gifted of French surrealist poets.

After studying the poem, we will emulate its structure and themes in order for you to write your very own personal verses. The goal will be to experiment, play, and explore new dimensions of the French language.

Open to students of level 3 & above

 

Extrait : 

Sur les merveilles des nuits
Sur le pain blanc des journées
Sur les saisons fiancées
J’écris ton nom

Sur les champs sur l’horizon
Sur les ailes des oiseaux
Et sur le moulin des ombres
J’écris ton nom

Sur chaque bouffée d’aurore
Sur la mer sur les bateaux
Sur la montagne démente
J’écris ton nom

 

Traduction : 

On the marvels of nights
On the white bread of days
On the married seasons
I write your name

On the fields on the horizon
On the wings of birds
And on the mill of shadows
I write your name

On each puff of dawn
On the sea on the boats
On the demential mountain
I write your name
