Wilson Baldridge

Wilson Baldridge is associate professor of French at Wichita State University. His translations of Deguy have appeared in Tyuonyi, Sulfur, Boxkite, Circumference, and Baudelaire and the Poetics of Modernity. He composed the biographical section of Deguy’s bibliography and, in addition to Recumbents (Wesleyan, 2005), has published numerous journal articles on the poet’s work. His translation of "Letter to Gérard Bucher" is forthcoming in a collective volume titled Death, Language, Thought (Birmingham: Summa Press).

These poems and translations are reproduced with permission from Wesleyan University Press, publisher of Recumbents (March, 2005), a bilingual edition of Michel Deguy’s 1985 volume Gisants. The Wesleyan edition includes an afterword by the late Jacques Derrida as well as a foreword and notes by translator Wilson Baldridge.
