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 los angeles modernité de los angeles vie ordinaire – les affiches ou bien les avions. On aurait ainsi tort de croire que ce recueil où s’inaugure los angeles 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 l. a. voix inimitable d’un lyrisme qui n’a pas cessé de nous toucher.
