Homework Help: French for Amanda

Posted by SraJMcGin on Wednesday, November 26, 2008 at 6:26pm.

Knowing that you and Hélène love poetry (and I do too!) here are some sites you might like:

1. (you can hear poetry sung or read by poets!):
(upper-right-hand look for "écouter."

2. (one of my favorite poems & poet; you can hear it as well):

3. (Did you know "Demain, dès l'aube" has been set to music?):

4. (U-Tube for the song):

5. (audiocite, black box upper right):

6. (Can you believe that someone made a cartoon?): (Broken Link Removed)

Do you know the story behind the poem?

Victor Hugo's daughter Leopoldine was married to Charles Vacquerie in February 1843, and in September she drowned with her husband. In this poem, 'Tomorrow, At Dawn', written on the fourth anniversary of her death, Hugo depicted his walk to the place where she was buried:
"I shall not look on the gold of evening falling
Nor on the sails descending distant towards Harfleur,
And when I come, shall lay upon your grave
A bouquet of green holly and of flowering briar."
For an English translation

Sra (aka Mme)
