The Bestiary

Or Procession of Orpheus

Guillaume Apollinaire

First published in 1909, Apollinaire’s first book of poetry is here translated by XJ Kennedy, whose introductory essay, ‘A Natural History of the Poet’, describes this partly autobiographical work as containing ‘the genetic code’ of the later poetry. Recalling a medieval bestiary, the 30 short poems, in both French and English translation, are accompanied by 30 woodcuts by Raoul Dufy. American cut pages.
