Alcools: Poèmes 1898-1913

Version 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 lifestyles 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 l. a. 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 easy 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.

LO Lorsque nous enon90ns une phrase banale comme "i! fait chaud dans cette salle", nos interlocuteurs occasionnels peuvent la comprendre voire l'approuver sans avoir a consulter un thermometre mesurant avec une certaine precision la temperature "objective" en degres Celsius ou Fahrenheit. II y a un statut propre aux "verites vecues" qui valent bien, nous assure HusserI, dans leur domaine de competence, la verite scientifique posee comme ideale, absolue: on a beau en denoncer la relativite et l'inexactitude subjectives, les verites de la doxa, loin d'etre des "pseudo-verites" (Scheinwahrheiten), n'en sont pas moins "les verites les meilleures" dans Ie monde de la vie quotidienne.

4. The Dionysian Logos and Relevance of the Vital Unity-of-Everything-There-Is-Alive There is a deep down logoic patterning in the societal sharing-in-life. In the new register of sense that the manifestation of the Logos of Life bursts forth with, inventively projects, we witness the surging of an outgrowth of the vital ordering of life - although sui generis and irreducible to its vital layers. This novel register does not cut its primogenital ties with the vital Logos. It keeps them alive in the transformative forge of the soul.

The organization of physical settlements around a center, perhaps orientation towards a place of worship, toward higher forces or powers, is a manifestation of the gravitational powers of macrocosmic ordering and of the directional orientation of each living being as a center with circumambiant conditions. , though each of these manifests quite different rationalities. However, when we consider aspects of the societal other than its vital and psych%rganic significances, we find that, though these remain foundational, society sets off on its own and departs from the prescriptions of natural behavior.
