Philippe Beck

studied literature and philosophy in Paris and since 1995 he has taught philosophy at the university of Nantes. He is also chief editor of the periodical Quaderno. The translator John Fenoghen writes about Beck: ‘The philosophical background is certainly not at variance with the thoughtful nature of his poetry. The investigative nature of it too, for Beck always writes in cohesive series, in which a principal idea is varied, supplemented, corrected or revoked from poem to poem.’
