Summary of "A virtuous poet (un vertueux poète)" :

  Both a story and a collection of bilingual poems, directly translated in English, Robert Southwell's language, "A virtuous poet" deals with the relationships between a poet and some women he can meet, like young brunette Matilda or writer Blondie.
   A pretext to denounce this trend of thrillers, noir fictions, the author calls a "pseudo-literature" considered "violent, unhealthy, shameful and not very intelligent".
   For his part, Frederic Tarkmanian promotes a literature turning out to be positive, intelligent, lyric and way more adult.
Summary of "The accursed writer (L'Écrivain maudit)" :
   "Michael Karevic is a writer indeed, but an accursed writer, in the great literary tradition, à la John Keats. While the media's pet novelists contest Goncourt, Renaudot or Femina prizes, Michael Karevic struggles in the underground.
   Driving his car in the middle of the countryside, looking for a shortcut that he'll never find, Karevic is going to meet some very different characters, notably Matilda, a young poetry loving brunette, and Gabriel, a solitary stroller."

  Behind its story, The accursed writer conceals a criticism of thrillers, noir fictions, the decline of poetry in France, just like an ode to nature.
