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 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.

Such characteristic Joycean ficto-geography is conveyed on a plaque at 52 Upper Clanbrassil Street, locating Leopold Bloom’s birth ‘in Joyce’s imagination’ as well as in this Dublin building. While this and other shrines to the novel annotate Dublin’s buildings and pavements, Joyce’s cityscape is inevitably being replaced and renewed over time. So, where once the city shaped the text, the text now haunts the city, as visitors adapt to reading locations increasingly unfamiliar from those found in the pages of Ulysses.
