Pierre Jean Jouve

The work of Pierre Jean Jouve (1887-1976), poet, novelist, critic and translator, influenced that of Pierre Emmanuel and Yves Bonnefoy in France, and David Gascoyne in England. In spiritual crisis in the 1920s Jouve disowned all his previous writing. Renewing his Catholic faith and pursuing his preoccupation with Freud (he married Blanche Reverchon, a psychoanalyst, in 1925) and the mystics, he entered his ‘vita nuova’.
