Anne  Portugal

Anne Portugal (1949, France) is poet and translator. She has published a dozen of books, the major ones at P.O.L. editions, Les commodités d’une banquette 1985, De quoi faire un mur 1987, Le plus simple appareil 1992, définitif bob 2001, la formule flirt 2010, et comment nous voilà moins épais 2017. She translated with Caroline Dubois, Paramour de Stacy Doris, P.O.L. 2010, et L’anglais mêlé de Caroline Bergvall, avec Abigail lang et Vincent Broqua, aux Presses du réel, en 2018. Anne Portugal is interested by the syntax – or more precisely the « fantax » - working to introduce disruptions, jumpings, speeding up and slowing down. She associates poetry to flirt, and defines it as an art of not touching it, and plays to deconstruct commonplaces of poetry and theoric analyses.
