Étoile-sur-Rhône: The part of the birds, an intimate and powerful collection of poems

Mireille Rossi has just published a new poetic and intimate work with Élan sud editions where love, mourning and friendship are addressed in words and drawings.

Étoilienne author Mireille Rossi has just published The birds’ share published by Élan sud. A collection of poems that takes the reader into an intimate and impactful universe to address universal themes of love, pain and femininity.

A collection of poems and drawings

Naturally discreet, the author has, this time, decided to reveal herself a little more. “My poems have always remained in the drawer even though I have been writing since I was little. Writing has never left me, just like my passion for drawing. In this collection, I wanted to mix the two worlds The idea for this new work came to me at the beginning of 2023.“, confides Mireille Rossi. In The birds’ sharewe find Millie Rosiers, a woman who at times dialogues with a voice to confide her feelings. “Millie is a character who resembles me in certain aspects, but she is not me. The presence of a voice in certain poems can sometimes represent the inner multiplicity or embody a head of heart telling the story of this woman Millie, who will be embodied in life, love and friendship”, comments Mireille Rossi. Through the pages, we see the heroine revealing her doubts, her cracks but also all her strength, her resilience in the face of life’s trials. “I see Millie as a warrior who gets back up after having hit rock bottom. Around me, I have seen people broken by hardships who have been able to transcend hardships. If there is one message I wish to convey it can be summed up by a phrase from Leonard Cohen: there is a crack, a crack in everything. This is how the light enters.. Just like her long-hidden texts, the author admits that more than 150 drawings are waiting to be revealed. We can only wish to discover them, both those present in The birds’ share make you want to see more about the one holding the pencil.
