    Le pote Michael Palmer est n New York en 1943. Il vit actuellement San Francisco.
    Il est l'auteur d'une vingtaine de livres dont une quinzaine de posie. Il a reu le prix Wallace Stevens en 2006, ce prix de 100.000 $ dollars qui est un des plus importants rcompense la totalit d'une uvre. Son influence est trs grande aux tats-Unis. En France, plusieurs de ses livres ont t traduits dont Sun (aux ditions P.O.L.) et Notes for Echo Lake (aux ditions Spectres Familiers). On pourrait dire que son uvre explore la nature des relations entre le langage et la perception. En cela, il est proche du pote franais Emmanuel Hocquard. Sa posie bien que semblant abstraite - puisque partant du langage - est en fait profondment lyrique. Premire figure date de 1984 et fait partie d'une trilogie qui comprend justement Notes pour Echo Lake (1981) et Sun (1988). Cette trilogie peut-tre considre comme le chef d'uvre de Palmer et la traduction du volet central manquait donc au lecteur franais.

    Michal Palmer est l'un de nos plus grands potes au summum de sa puissance. Il parvient rassembler et unifier des tendances qui ont divis les potes en factions rivales... Dans ces pomes, il semble qu'on soit emport aussi aisment que dans un rve. Rosemarie Waldrop, New York Times book Review.

    Michal Palmer est assurment l'un des plus purs potes parmi les jeunes potes amricains en activit aujourd'hui. Lee Bartlett, American Book Review.

  • Sun

    Michaël Palmer

    Six parties composent le livre : «Cinquième prose», «Série Baudelaire», les deux parties intitulées «C» ainsi que celles (doubles encore) répondant au titre du livre, «Sun». Certaines avaient déjà paru dans des traductions différentes : «Série Baudelaire» traduit par Emmanuel Hocquard et Philippe Mikriammos (Éditions Royaumont, 1989), «Sun» paru en 1990, dans la traduction de Richard Sieburth aux Éditions Ulysse-Fin de siècle. Dominique Fourcade écrit : «dans le mot Sun (tel qu'inventé par Michael Palmer, sombre et surexcitant) / je ne vois ni soleil ni sentinelle». L'écriture de Palmer n'est pas une représentation de l'expérience vécue, au sens traditionnel du terme, et ne suit pas non plus un trajet linéaire. Ce sont des «filaments de discours» et des «tonalités brisées» qui remettent en question le caractère de la première personne comme sujet. «Un projet, donc, de penser contre», qui exige du lecteur un travail comparable à l'écriture elle-même.
