Like a farewell bouquet, three books by Philippe Jaccottet appear in early March, barely ten days after the poet’s death. Among them, La Clarté Notre-Dame brings together the most recent texts, barely completed last summer. José-Flore Tappy is a poet and longtime friend of the writer from Grignan. She is the one who edited the Works by Philippe Jaccottet in the Bibliothèque de la Pléiade, in 2014. Here she shares the story of this latest book, a poignant and luminous testamentary collection.

Le Temps: Today, you are thrilled to discover these three books by Philippe Jaccottet. So he will have continued to write until the end?
