The first translation into English of Á la lumière d’hiver in its entirety
‘In this fine translation of Phillipe Jaccottet’s elegiac three-part collection Tim Dooley wonderfully combines the grace of his own attentive poetics with a clear intimacy of understanding. In his hands, ‘In Winter Light’ relays Jaccottet’s lucidly charged journey through loss and mourning in language that’s as close to the ear as it is to the imagination and the heart’ – Jane Draycott
‘Philippe Jaccottet often employs a negative theology in which attempts at simile are discarded in the imperative to arrive at the mot juste – considered both as language and as philosophical position. Tim Dooley is alert to this ascesis, and his translations seem to me quite excellent: they are chaste, rhythmically sound, and retain the constant decorum that is a chief quality of this quiet, essential voice’ – Stephen Romer
