Poetic Obituaries: 'It's a fake,' he [Jacques Dupin] quietly declared.

'It's not even a very good fake. It's terrible.' " He explained the process he used in making such calls, then added, "When the fake is good, my job is interesting."

Mr. Dupin's poetry, beginning with his first collection in 1950, earned him a parallel rank among France's postwar avant-garde writers. In 1966 he was a founder of L'Éphémère, an influential poetry quarterly whose other founders included André du Bouchet, Yves Bonnefoy and Paul Celan.
