Dispatches from Guadalajara: Stephane Despatie, The Quebecois Poet


I mentioned earlier in the week that I would post a video of the Quebecois poet, Stephane Despatie.  He is one of the elite of the current Quebec literati.  I didn’t catch the title of the poem or what book it was from, but you can check out his press, Ecrits des Forges, which publishes his work and also a bilingual (Spanish/French) edition of 15 Quebec poets.  It’s a great collection and his site is worth checking out if not for the presence of Nicole Brossard’s work.  Even if you don’t understand this video, the guy next to him is entertaining for his uncanny resemblance to the love child of Ringo Starr and Borat.
