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 l. a. fois populaire et savante qui permet au poète de recueillir l’héritage du passé tout en s’ouvrant à los angeles modernité de l. a. 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.

Example text

Rumor, the weapon of disenfranchised citizens, flew once again, pitting popular against official discourse. After the fall of the Shah’s regime, it was left to the Islamic government to investigate the crime. But the new regime seemed unwilling. The slow pace of the official investigation led some of the disenchanted relatives of the victims to stage a sit-Â�in at Abadan’s Department of Finance. 21 Takabalizadeh, who was Â�eager to clear his name as a Savak stooge, freely admitted his crime; but he was given no defense attorney, and none of the witnesses and co-Â�conspirators he named were called to testify, perhaps because a professional defense would have turned up the complicity of Muslim religious figures.

Although the Pahlavi government placed the blame on the religious zealots involved in the widening protest movement, the overwhelming public consensus held the by then discredited government responsible for engineering the fire and for the inept responses to it. In fact, the Shah’s own words, broadcast before the fire, were interpreted as his foreknowledge and complicity in the upcoming disaster. ”↜3 Likewise, a prominent secular opposition politician, Karim Sanjabi, of the National Front, called it a “Reichstag fire,” designed to turn public sentiments against the anti-Â�Shah forces (Green 1982:96).
