Jean-Luc Champerret

Jean-Luc Champerret was born in the village of Le Moustier, and is the author of The Lascaux Notebooks. Here, Champerret works with signs from the caves at Lascaux, to which he first of all ascribes a series of significations, and which he then inserts into 3 × 3 grids, to create poems. In so doing, he not only gives us our first glimpse of the poetry of the Ice Age, but he suggests that Oulipo’s first anticipatory plagiarists might have roots further back in history than has previously been imagined.

Jean-Luc Champerret's work featured in PN Review comprises one contribution of poetry.
