Bancquart was president of the French arts council La Maison de la Poésie, and a professor emerita of the Université Paris-Sorbonne. Bancquart has been described as one of the most "powerful" voices in contemporary French poetry, drawing comparisons to French poet Charles Baudelaire.[4] In addition to her many volumes of poetry, Bancquart has also published books and essays on subjects such as surrealism and Anatole France.[5]

She was married to French composer Alain Bancquart.[6]
