Claude Régy La Barque le soir


Breathing in, descending, surfacing to air… In Vesaas’s text, a man – half dying – drifts southwards, fighting forces from his past or from another life – his own perhaps. His
nearness to death teaches him the things nobody else knows. Claude Régy conjures up a virgin territory where boundaries are constantly blurred, seeking out the dark, fearful
recesses of our consciousness.
