Françoise Delcarte (1936-1996)

January 2000
Belgian Women Poets: An Anthology;2000, Vol. 11, p243
The article presents a biography of poet Françoise Delcarte. Delcarte was born in Peruwelz (Hainaut) where she lived with her mother, a brother, and her father who was a surgeon. After she graduated from the State Normal School in Tournai with a major in literature, she served for some twenty years as a teacher's assistant in two different high schools, although she never actually practiced the teaching profession per se. Her poetry has been described as a constant "tension between destruction and reconstruction," and most critics emphasize the prevailing use of the first person in her poems.
