"I spend all afternoon trying to translate five lines of Henry Levet's Afrique occidentale"

French poet Henry Jean-Marie Levet had poems published in various well known French journals during his lifetime, but given the influence his work had on great poets such as his fellow Frenchman, Valery Larbaud, it accumulated to just 11 pages in the end. These exist as the ‘Cartes Postales’, or ‘Postcards’.
