By Guillaume Apollinaire
En 1913, Apollinaire publie Alcools, son optimal recueil. qui rassemble quinze ans de poésie. S'il est alors influencé par un symbolisme sur le déclin, il s'en démarque par d'audacieuses options : l. a. ponctuation disparaît et des innovations récentes, comme l'avion ou l'automobile, font leur entrée en poésie. Mais Alcools est aussi une oeuvre contrastée, où los angeles travel Eiffel et le pont Mirabeau côtoient des champs de colchiques et des forêts légendaires, où l'agitation du progrès se mêle aux motifs consacrés de l'amour perdu et du temps qui passe. Tantôt clairs comme le son des cloches rhénanes, tantôt sombres comme les geôles de l. a. felony de los angeles Santé, ces poèmes ouvrent l. a. voie à un nouveau lyrisme. Partagés entre culture et modernité, ils reflètent los angeles créativité bouillonnante d'une époque sur le element de basculer dans le chaos de los angeles Grande Guerre.

Simic's creation within reason erudite. I learn it after analyzing a couple of 3rd of the textual content. regardless of being a really attention-grabbing introduction--concerning fable to no small degree--it didn't relatively give a contribution to my figuring out of the choices I had learn. it's poetry although, and maybe 3 or 4 readings needs to move (over a number of seasons, even) earlier than these kind of connections will mature and endure fruit.
I did get pleasure from those poems. there's a humor to them that's tough to explain (again, i don't imagine Simic's introductory feedback at the humor shed any gentle on those poems on the moment). additionally, every little thing I've learn up to now is like a brief cycle--so I'm reluctant to publish only a unmarried poem.

IN THE VILLAGE OF MY ANCESTORS
Someone embraces me
Someone seems to be at me with the eyes of a wolf
Someone takes to the air his hat
So i will see him better
Everyone asks me
Do you understand how I'm with regards to you
Unknown previous males and women
Appropriate the names
Of younger women and men from my memory
I ask one among them
Tell me for God's sake
Is George the Wolf nonetheless living
That's me he answers
With a voice from the following world
I contact his cheek with my hand
And beg him with my eyes
To inform me if I'm dwelling too
