W.S. Merwin's brilliantly evocative and loving portrayal of southwestern France, a great poet vividly conveys his intimate knowledge of the people and the countryside in this ancient part of the world (home of the Lascaux caves). In three narratives of small town life, Merwin shows with matchless poetic and narrative power how the past is still palpably present.
