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 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 basic 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.

Sample text

If written by a male posing as a female, knowing that the intended audience would be primarily masculine, then it would acquire a radically new con®guration, shaped by culturally programmed expectations and reactions. 1 Read as self-conscious exercises in male fantasy in favor of men's sexuality and to their inevitable advantage, these stories become a kind of injoke (orchestrated perhaps, as was probably Rabelais's Pantagruel, by an editor's commercial instincts) which a sixteenth-century public, essentially masculine, would have had no dif®culty in recognizing and appreciating as such.

At this point, he abandons medicine for syllogism, stating that since cuckoldry is, by de®nition, something that can beset a man only after marriage, then one can say of any married man that he is, was, will be, or may be cuckolded. 26 Gender, rhetoric, and print culture in French Renaissance writing The may be with which he concludes his reasoning simply restores Panurge's problem to the realm of probability, reviving all of his former uncertainty and despair. Moreover, as a corollary to his contention that cuckoldry is the hypothetical complement of every marriage, Rondibilis proceeds to locate its cause in the inconstant nature of women, rehearsing in the process all of the most prominent antifeminist commonplaces: ``Quand je diz femme, je diz un sexe tant fragil, tant variable, tant muable, tant inconstant et imperfaict que Nature me semble (parlant en tout honneur et reverence) s'estre esguareÂe de ce bon sens par lequel elle avait creÂe et forme toutes choses, quand elle a basty la femme .

If the complete meaning of a story is not inherent in its structure or words, then it may depend also on narrative strategy and reader perception. Thus a story proclaiming and extolling feminine sexual freedom would be read differently according as it was written by a male or female author and directed towards a male or female audience. If written by a male posing as a female, knowing that the intended audience would be primarily masculine, then it would acquire a radically new con®guration, shaped by culturally programmed expectations and reactions.
