Aurélia Lassaque

Aurélia Lassaque

(France, 1983)

A nameless 'She' gains a voice in the rewriting of a canonical story.

Aurélia Lassaque works in two languages, writing her poetry in contemporary French, but also in Occitan, a language that only survives in just a few small areas. This bilingualism is what lends her work a certain duality, further sharpened by the themes she addresses. This is also apparent in her most recent collection, En quête d'un visage (2017), in which Lassaque creates a dialogue between Odysseus and 'She'. Although nameless, 'She' does gain a voice as Lassaque raises her from oblivion, thus rewriting a canonical story from a woman's perspective in her very own way.
