The first French translation of Ungaretti's complete works is called Les Cinqlivres. It was completed in 1954 by the author and Jean Lescure for the Editions de Minuit. Ungaretti provided comments about the source texts, gave suggestions and opinions on the translations. He also made for Lescure the autotranslations from La Terra Promessa published in this paper. These texts provide an interesting representation of Ungaretti's poetic use of the French language and highlight what Ungaretti considered essential elements in the act of translation.
