Alcools by Guillaume Apollinaire

By Guillaume Apollinaire

En 1913, Apollinaire publie Alcools, son most well known recueil. qui rassemble quinze ans de poésie. S'il est alors influencé par un symbolisme sur le déclin, il s'en démarque par d'audacieuses strategies : l. a. ponctuation disparaît et des innovations récentes, comme l'avion ou l'automobile, font leur entrée en poésie. Mais Alcools est aussi une oeuvre contrastée, où los angeles journey Eiffel et le pont Mirabeau côtoient des champs de colchiques et des forêts légendaires, où l'agitation du progrès se mêle aux motifs consacrés de l'amour perdu et du temps qui passe. Tantôt clairs comme le son des cloches rhénanes, tantôt sombres comme les geôles de los angeles criminal de l. a. Santé, ces poèmes ouvrent l. a. voie à un nouveau lyrisme. Partagés entre culture et modernité, ils reflètent l. a. créativité bouillonnante d'une époque sur le element de basculer dans le chaos de l. a. Grande Guerre.
