    • Sur les prophétiesJ’ai connu quelques prophétessesMadame Salmajour avait appris en Océanie à tirer les cartesC’est là-bas qu’elle avait eu encore l’occasion de participerÀ une scène savoureuse d’anthropophagieElle n’en parlait pas à tout le mondeEn ce qui concerne l’avenir elle ne se trompait jamaisUne cartomancienne céretane Marguerite je ne sais plus quoiEst également habileMais Madame Deroy est la mieux inspiréeLa plus préciseTout ce qu’elle m’a dit du passé ét [...]

    • Appolinaire was one of the great figures of 'modern' poetry. Also had a great eye on his fellow visual artists as well. And that is the beauty of this guy's work - it's visual as well as literal. What you get here is World War 1 told in a manner that is fresh as a new flower but dealing with a deadly world. Essential poetry collection from a master!


    • J’ai accroché de manière extrêmement non homogène à ce recueil de poèmes. Certains m’ont laissée complètement indifférente, a priori les plus perchés/décousus ; d’autres m’ont intéressée mais sans plus – les dits calligrammes, justement, qui sont intéressants sur le principe, mais pas forcément émouvants poétiquement parlant ; d’autres, enfin, m’ont prise à la gorge Cette dernière catégorie abordant principalement le thème de la guerre Appollinaire en parle a [...]


    • BlueMoon Le 02 Juillet 2017 à 14:03Un peu difficile à comprendre, beau parfois, très centré sur la guerre. Certains poèmes sont aussi illisibles. Dommage que je ne l'aie pas étudié. A little hard to understand, beautiful sometimes, really focused on war. Some poems are even unreadable. Too bad I didn't study it, I'm sure I would have understood more!


    • Actually, it is closer to 2.5 stars. I don't know, it is jus that some of these poems I loved, some I thought were ok and some I really didn't get. What pulls it from 2 to 2.5 (or 3, as per ' rating system) are the calligrams. The very reason I chose to read this book was the stylised poems. And I still think they're really cool, I can't help but marvel at how much work it must have been, to get the words to fit the figure (or vice versa). I read these poems in two books simultaneously, one in F [...]


    • He was definitely attempting to move poetry in different directions. His calligrammes or arranging words into a symbol, shape, or different form than usual are inspiring, and surely have fueled poetic experimentation since then. He does have a sort of love affair with war that leaves a sour note with me, but even so he does speak of its horrors when not glorifying it. Lines:Pity us who fight always at the boundariesOf infinity and the future----------It's hard to imagine How stupid and stolid su [...]


    • Apollinaire, inventor of a form, the Calligram, a poem that is shaped like what it describes, kicks the shit out of Wilfred Owen any day. You can taste the mud of the trenches in his poems and feel the casual, reminiscent, playful, heart broken peace from which his poetry is born defiant of impending death,






    • Apollinaire was the greatest poet ever to live. Get this and "Alcools," as translated by William Meredith.


    • Someday I will finish this book. I really will. Maybe I'll try and freshen up my French first, though. Apollinaire is probably worth that effort.





    • I normally don't "do" poetry, but this is one exception. Even if you don't understand French, Apollinaire's calligrams are still fun to look at.
