Char" to Marianne Oswald S. The poet gives his friend Marianne Oswald free rein to recite his selected poems to be published by Gallimard. I apologize for not having written to you earlier, but I have been and still am truly unwell. I will call you or send you a message in the coming days, as soon as I am less gout-ridden.
It bothers me that I might cause you delay. I trust you, you know that. A selection of my poems will be released by Gallimard at the end of the month. You will be able to easily draw from it.
I rejoice in your good work in cinema. Char here refers to his work Poèmes et prose choisis, published by Gallimard in 1957. She participates in his radio and television programs dedicated to poetry.
