Barbéri, Jacques

The Ferryman by Jacques Barbéri (Translated by Michael Shreve), InTranslation (The Brooklyn Rail), August 2010.

Dressed in his dying panoply, the ferryman, dreamer, contemplates the changes in the photographic image. The fall of his body. The fingers caress the mutilated corpses. These little beings that wait for him to cross from this world into the other.

A landscape of calm suffering.
