From the publisher

This year-long sequence of five-line poems takes as its point of departure the French Republican Calendar, devised by the poet Fabre d'Eglantine with the aim of breaking the power of the Church and returning symbolic importance to the agricultural worker. It featured months renamed after the seasons, and days that, instead of being dedicated to saints, were each devoted to a plant, animal, mineral or agricultural implement.
