A major poetic work of the Jewish Romanian poet and philosopher Benjamin Fondane.

"For the first time, the poetry of one of the greatest, if unduly forgotten, modern writers is now available in English. The translator’s careful consideration of the complexities of the original is not only a faithful transposition, but also an accessible and enjoyable experience for the anglophone reader . . . highly commendable."—Olivier Salazar-Ferrer, author of Benjamin Fondane

"This meditative and rhapsodic travelogue of a Romanian Jew takes the reader from the poet’s childhood home to Paris in its heyday, between the Wars, and on a voyage down the coast of Africa, across to South America, and back, presenting his travels as both a mythic tale and an existential search."—Brooks Haxton, author of They Lift Their Wings to Cry

  Benjamin Fondane (1898–1944) was a Romanian Jew who immigrated to France in 1923 to pursue his love of French poetry and philosophy.
