(1957-)FRANCE 法國

Poet Jean-Michel Espitallier (born 1957) works along constantly renewed modes of action to create new vocabularies and test the limits of language. As the co-founder of the journal Java and coordinator of the issue about “New French Poetry” in the magazine littéraire (March 2001), he is also the author of several books, including the very controversial Pièces detaches: une anthologie de la poésie française aujourd’hui [Bits and Pieces: An Anthology of French Poetry Today] (Pocket, 2000) and Caisse à outils: un panorama de la poésie française aujourd’hui [Tools Box: A Panorama of French Poetry Today] (Pocket, 2006). His Le Théorème d’Espitallier (Flammarion, 2003) was translated into English by Guy Bennett (Espitallier’s Theorem, Seismicity Editions, 2005). Fantaisie bouchère (Derrière la salle de bains, 2001) was translated by Sherry Brennan (Butcher’s Fantasy, Duration Press, 2003). Also a musician, he currently works on various multimedia projects, is a drummer for a punk-rock band, and gives readings, performances and lectures in France and abroad.
