Secret of Breath

Secret of Breath
  • Title: Secret of Breath
  • Authors: Isabelle Baladine Howald
  • Publisher: Burning Deck Books
  • Published Date: 2008
  • Description: Poetry. Translated from the French by Elena Rivera. SECRET OF BREATH is a suite for two voices--a voice from outside and a voice from inside, a voice of the living and a voice of the dying--in a race against death and toward death. Caught in a narrative frame and a landscape marked by war, snow, cold, speed, and separation, these two voices, even while facing death, embody the approach of love. The secret of breath is as much a kiss as a last sigh. Isabelle Baladine Howald lives and works in Strasbourg, where she pursued her studies in philosophy and now directs the "Philosophical and Literary Encounters" of the Librairie Kleber.
