Ecuador Reviews


"Coming upon Ecuador today one cannot, except by an act of imagination, appreciate the revolutionary things it was when it was first published, nor the risk that Michaux took in those days." --James Finn, New Republic
"Michaux and Macgowan, both poets, both travelers, make a marvelous pair."

--Donald Richie, author of Tokyo

About Henri Michaux


Henri Michaux was born into a wealthy Belgian family in 1899. Michaux disappointed his parents by dropping out of medical school to become a sailor. He sailed with the merchant marine throughout Asia and South America and eventually settled in Paris, where his poetry and later his paintings came to be widely admired. Michaux's works include Emergences-Resuregences, Darkness Moves: An Henri Michaux Anthology, 1927-1984, and A Barbarian in Asia. He died in 1984 in Paris.
