Lisa Ducasse is a poet born in Mauritius and currently living in Paris. She was first published at the age of thirteen in a yearly anthology of short stories, and later in a Mauritian poetry magazine called Point Barre. She is currently working on releasing her first collection of poems, built around the questions of youth and the feelings that shape and make us… us. Her fascination for the former is perhaps best justified by Patti Smith’s interrogation in her novel Just Kids: “Who can know the heart of youth but youth itself?”. And as for feelings… aren’t they, in the end, all we have, all we really have? And isn’t that part of the magic?
