Hard not to be florid about this book …Devoured in snippets or read straight through. It presents amazing experiences and skills. Because Marc-Charles Nicolas has a brilliantly delicate appreciation for the idea of a sentence in a poem, the juxtapositions of segments in these pages appear essentially to construct entire topics for mediation. Examined along and the dawnings increase and multipy--- inspirations, love, feelings, locations, events hitherto isolated are now all hooks-and-eyes into each other.  And because Marc-Charles gets his inspiration from the muse, you feel the exquisiteness and beauty buried in shattered phrases about the “universality of poetry.”


As a poet he belongs to a life larger than his own. —The life of genuine things. And (One more performance worth a word): the poems in his book “Perfumed Paradise” are filled with ‘aboutness’. Put together as they are, they’re seen to abound with roots: their laughter or melancholy or ire has discernible reasons.  The humanness of poem-writing as a hobby, the splendid unavoidability of it ---that is what this compilation brings together.

But floridity was to be kept away. One cloudless day---pace the anti-sentimentalists: life is short—I sat in the sun and by a Brook with a friend and passed pages of this manuscript from side to side, reading fragments aloud, laughing quietly or looking grave, occasionally thrilled and bemused.  A while back, this was, yet I remember no happier afternoon.  The poems were written originally in French 13 years ago in the year 1993, delicious remembrance - fantastic book!
