At forty, Adam, an intellectual and writer "who comes from the other side of the ocean," and who is steeped in the belief that he is the last of his line, finds himself--dreams himself--in America. The promised land's gift to him is Aerea, youthful, radiant, an enchantress, essentially unattainable: their adventure is short-lived. Words, she tells Adam, are the obstacle that stands in the way. And scarcely has Aerea appeared in his life than she has walked out of it.
Emmanuel Hocquard (born in 1940 in Cannes) is a French poet who grew up in Tangier, Morocco. He served as the editor of the small press Orange Export Ltd., and, with Claude Royet-Journoud, edited two anthologies of new American poets, 21+1: Poetes americains aujour hui (with a corresponding English volume, 21+1 American Poets Today) and 49+1. In 1989, Hocquard founded and directed "Un bureau sur l'Atlantique," an association fostering relations between French and American poets."
