Product Details


Giono has created his own private terrestrial domain, a mythical domain…It is a region over which the stars and planets course with throbbing pulsations. It is a land in which things happen to men as aeons ago they happened to the gods. Pan still walks the earth. The soil is saturated with cosmic juices. Events transpire. Miracles occur. —Henry Miller

[Giono’s] phrases behave like the wild grasses and the beasts he speaks about. They are sap breathing and moving across the page…Jody Gladding translates as a poet…and that is the only way to translate Giono. —Cecilia Vicuïa

What good luck to have this portion of Paradise, with its shepherds and music, rivers and mountains, magic and mystery, lovingly translated into English. —Christopher Merrill
