Eddie Bell: En Français Selected and New Works

©2003 by Eddie Bell

Eddie Bell: En Français Selected and New Works, Eddie Bell’s second volume of poetry, is a compilation narrative poetry in English with side-by-side translations in French. The translations in this unique book were accomplished by a task force of accomplished French poets, French English professors and French students. Some of the poetry is taken from Capt’s Dreaming Chair, with a few of the poems drawn from Eddie’s experiences in France. One poem, “Side Streets,” was presented to President Bill Clinton at the White House. President Clinton had this say about “Side Streets” in a letter he wrote to Eddie: “We want to thank you for the poem. It’s wonderful, and we will treasure it all the more because of the history you helped make possible …”

Capt’s Dreaming Chair

©2001 by Eddie Bell

Capt’s Dreaming Chair is Eddie Bell’s first volume of poetry published in 2001. This collection of narrative poetry tells human stories about life situations. Many of the poems are taken from the lives of his family, especially his father, Captain Carl Bell, a self-made man, veteran of two wars and family patriarch. The poems take on a universality that cross cultures, ethnics and ages. When Eddie reads them in public it is not uncommon for emotions to tingle and tears to flow in recognition of life’s unfair circumstance.

Capt’s Dreaming Chair has been well received by the literary world and a number of the poems were chosen for translation into French as part of cultural exchange in France and as the basis of a preparatory school and university translation project for French English language students.
