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 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 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 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 basic 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.
