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 l. a. 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 easy 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.

15 As she shares information about her identity on Facebook or on her Xanga blog, a sixteen-year-old is providing clues to the psychological and sociological processes that underlie the social interactions of her peer group more broadly. On the one hand, the disclosure of personal information on her blog, social network site, or home page is a new form of peer communication that replaces old ones (such as diaries or letters). 16 On the other hand, the revelation of personal data on the Internet helps her to establish group membership, which is central to her social identity.

She might put in her real age because she doesn’t want “creeps” looking at her pictures and knowing all about her.
