Although written primarily for a French-language audience, this book's title should not mislead.   Since it is an international anthology of contemporary haikuists from all around the world, it necessarily includes haik in many languages.   All haiku in the book are translated into French for their target audience.   The book features many prominent modern haikuists from such diverse nations as France, Canada, Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, a large number of haiku from Japan (translated into French), New Zealand, Romania and Russia.
 

Alors que ce volume vise les lecteurs francophones, son titre n'est pas tout à fait indicatif. Puisqu'il s'agit d'un florilège international de haïkuistes mondiaux, le livre contient des centaines de poèmes en plusierus langues. Tous les haïkus dans le présent volume sont nécessairement traduits en français, mais les collaborateurs proviennent de pays tels que la France, le Canada, l'Argentine, l'Australie, la Belgique, le Brésil, la Nouvelle Zélande, la Roumanie et la Russie. Il va sans dire qu'il y a plus de poètes japonais que ceux de tous les autres pays. Tous les poèmes sont affichés en textes parallèles, dans leur langue originelle et en français.
