“A beautiful, pensive novel-in-verse, King of a Hundred Horsemen presents one of France’s most important contemporary writers at her most delicate and most complex. Étienne’s integration of autobiography and haunting atmosphere make this not only the portrait of a life, but also that of a world in transition. Translator Marilyn Hacker, herself one of America’s foremost poets, has rendered the whole beautifully, keeping all its nuances and sensuality alive.” —Cole Swensen
“Odd as it can be, and just that brilliant. I cannot possibly imagine anyone having dared to translate this singularly-angled poem of a startling prose except Marilyn Hacker, whose triumph equals that of the author. Two bravas, please!” —Mary Ann Caws, author of Surprised in Translation and editor of The Yale Anthology of 20th Century French Poetry
