Before The World Was Made

Feu Chatterton has a new album. It has been something to brighten up the end of winter.

One of the songs, “Avant qu’il n’y ait le monde” is a translation from a Yeats poem, “Before The World Was Made”.

Translating poems must be really difficult. If the translation becomes a song, it is double the challenge.

The result is beautiful. This is the video with the French lyrics in the description.

I spent some time reading about Yeats, checking poems and poems analysis. I also watched a couple of old Yale courses lectures.

It was a good distraction from the February gloom.
