Abstract:

"In the novella Green Wheat, fifteen-year-old Vinca and her young friend Phil struggle to comprehend their bewildering urges. Set in a season of waiting, depicting their summer vacation together in a villa in Brittany, Colette's tale probes the uncomfortable border between the grief of leaving childhood behind and the frustration of not being old enough to move beyond it." "Published in 1923, Green Wheat was initially serialized in the French newspaper Le Matin, until protests against the frank depiction of adolescent sexuality caused the paper to cease the novella's publication. Now poet and translator Zack Rogow has resurrected it with respect and care."--BOOK JACKET.
