Alcools: Poèmes 1898-1913

Variation enrichie (Introduction, notes, file et chronologie)

Placés sous le signe du temps qui passe, les poèmes d’Alcools récréent tout un monde : celui des lieux où son life a conduit leur auteur et dont ils entrecroisent les souvenirs, comme celui de ces grandes figures féminines qui ont traversé sa vie. Mais ils sont en même temps imprégnés d’une tradition à los angeles fois populaire et savante qui permet au poète de recueillir l’héritage du passé tout en s’ouvrant à l. a. modernité de los angeles vie ordinaire – les affiches ou bien les avions. On aurait ainsi tort de croire que ce recueil où s’inaugure l. a. poésie du XXe siècle soit, à sa parution en 1913, un livre de rupture. Nourri de poèmes anciens aussi bien que récents, le chant que font entendre ceux d’Apollinaire, à l’oralité si puissante, tire ses ressources du vers régulier comme du vers libre, et il ne s’agit pas pour le poète de céder au uncomplicated plaisir du nouveau : seule compte ici sa liberté et ce que lui dicte los angeles voix inimitable d’un lyrisme qui n’a pas cessé de nous toucher.

Sample text

In the early summer of 1979, only a few months after the Islamic Revolution had liberated me from having to explain to geographically and politically challenged fellow students where I was from, I found myself at Speakers’ Corner in London’s Hyde Park, shouting until I was hoarse. I had recently finished my college studies and was visiting friends and family in London, and as I stood on the lawn surrounded by a very emotional crowd of recent Iranian exiles—many of whom had been forced, at least so they thought, to flee in recent months—I vehemently defended the Islamic Republic.

Fuad’s parents had fled Baghdad in the 1930s during a wave of pogroms and institutionalized anti-Semitism, when many Iraqi Jews made their way to neighboring Iran, settling in a country that had boasted a large and vibrant Persian Jewish community for millennia. But Fuad didn’t feel in the least Iraqi, and despite his extended stays in Israel (where he also attended college before the revolution and where he learned his fluent Hebrew), he didn’t feel Israeli; he felt Iranian. And as an Iranian, he was with his countrymen when they rose up against the Shah.

Exclaimed my friend Khosro, a longtime resident of the no-longer-chic downtown Tehran street. “He’s the local tough, and he beats up all the other cats. ” I asked. ” I asked naively. “No. What’s there to do? ” Iranians are not known to keep indoor pets. Dogs are, of course, unclean in Islam, and as such are not welcome in most homes (although not a few Westernized upper-class Tehranis do keep dogs, but generally away from public view). Cats, Islamic-correct, are far more common, although unlike their Western counterparts Iranians don’t so much own their cats as merely provide a home for them and feed them scraps from the table.
