    Thank you. I think I have confused the meaning of pour autant que. Doesnt it mean insofar as? In which case the sentence would read as follows in English -

    Moreover, the collection will have thematique significance insofar as the poems will bring to life the experiences of....

    What would be a correct use of 'pour autant que'?

    Pour autant que je sache = as far as I know

    apart from "pour autant que je sache", which is a common, or "pour autant que je puisse en juger", I can't find so many examples of that phrase

    what is also common is "pour autant" ex :Je l'aime. Pour autant, je ne le suivrai pas au bout du monde = however /for all that (?)
