|“What the hell is he going to do in this mess?” He is neither more nor less than the author of “Chemin Blanc“, of “Terre des Lauriers” and of this charming and delicate work which is called “the poem of Assisi”
… Yes the poet Émile Ripert will be a candidate in Arles in the next legislative elections…. It is easy to see what a Parliament could gain by electing this professor. We can see more, what the Republic of Letters could lose.

“Here are divine evenings over divine Umbria. ”
