Patrice de La Tour du Pin belongs to the contemporary consciousness as naturally as the sound of wind in the trees or the cry of wild birds ‘fleeing towards other climes’. ‘All the countries that no longer have legends / Will be condemned to dying of cold …’ sang the young poet in La Quête de Joie in 1933. We need this poetry more than ever in order to breathe and live, if we don’t want to die of boredom or to suffocate under the ‘dead sun of self-love’. The current rediscovery of La Tour du Pin’s poetry is cause for celebration. A young and numerous audience listened to his enigmatic and yet familiar poems during a colloquy at the Collège de France in September 2003. The twelve contributions gathered here clear paths through the dense thickets of La Quête de Joie, leading other readers in search of beauty and meaning to discover the ‘countries of the soul’ that La Tour du Pin explored on his own behalf and on ours. This book invites us to join in the adventure, in the footsteps of an adventurer sailing ‘between so many attractions and so many stars’.
