This is the first bilingual collection of Desvignes' poetry and as such, it provides a fresh glimpse of her poetic insights to both French and Anglophone readers. Desvignes' poetry resonates in a variety of tonalités within this varied collection that will become obvious to the reader: the classical dignity of The Portal of the Lionesses, the ironic, meditative, and emotional lyricism voiced in Screams in the Night, the themes of lost love and passing time and death apparent in My Heart, Little by Little the Night is Falling, the cryptic, yet insightful descriptions of 105 miniatures of painter Michel Dufour in The Indian Newspaper, and the modulations of tone found in the Diverse Poetry that ends the collection
