ABSTRACT
The article discusses the poem "Winds," by Saint-John Perse and translated by Hugh Chishlom. "Winds," with a hundred pages more, is too heavy as well as too large to read. These volumes belong in fact to a world very remote from the sources of the poet's poetry. The poet sees all the works of man as magnificent leaves and flowers on the one tree of life. Winds, perhaps the finest of the poems has been described as an epic. "Winds" has no hero but the spirit that animates and blows where it listeth, and its four sections is divided into a number of strophic sections might more justly be called hymns.
