Paul Fournel was President of Oulipo between 2003 and 2019. Two Ways was published in the Bibliothèque Oulipienne, no 229, 2017. The two ways poem, invented by Fournel, is a fixed form suggested by the experience of cycling on country roads: it opens with a quatrain, setting the theme, then splits into two complementary or contradictory octains, and is resolved in a final quatrain. The quatrains are syllabic and the octains contain half their syllable count.
Paul Fournel's work featured in PN Review comprises one contribution of poetry.
