Brouillons d'un baiser: Premiers pas vers Finnegans Wake by James Joyce

By James Joyce

Variation interactive bilingue Français/Anglais.

"Avec l. a. découverte récente de quelques pages de brouillons égarées, c’est le chaînon manquant entre Ulysse et Finnegans Wake qui a été mis au jour.

Pour se relancer alors qu’il traversait une période d'incertitude, Joyce s’est mis à écrire de curieuses vignettes sur des thèmes irlandais. Ces petits textes, apparemment simplistes, sont les germes de ce qui deviendra le plus complexe des chefs-d’œuvre du vingtième siècle.

Nous publions ici pour los angeles première fois, dans l. a. langue originale et en traduction française, le cœur de cet ensemble qui s’organise autour de l. a. légende de Tristan et Iseult et notamment du foremost baiser des deux amants. Joyce s’efforce de décrire, dans une veine tantôt ugly, tantôt lyrique, ce baiser, présenté aussi bien comme un événement cosmique que comme un flirt sordide. L’étreinte se déroule sous le regard libidineux de quatre voyeurs séniles, dont les divagations donneront le ton et fixeront le sort de Finnegans Wake.

Ces textes nous révèlent un point inattendu de l. a. démarche créative de Joyce et offrent une voie d’accès à qui voudrait commencer à s’aventurer dans l’univers si intimidant de sa dernière œuvre."

Why, then, learn Pound and Eliot as Imagists? because the former phrased it, to supply “language to imagine in” relating to their shared top class on precision; and to explicate differing purposes for this emphasis. Pound plies accuracy to carve differences. by means of carving, he sought to delineate elements of a version tradition. Conversely, and ironically, severances renderable via apt language enabled Eliot to intuit a divine “amalgamation”—which may displace inevitable confusions between gadgets, and among topic and item: turmoil dramatized in Eliot’s early work.

Because they transcended it, Imagism initiates Pound’s and Eliot’s improvement. Poets wed to Imagism inevitably deal with “small things” (Dasenbrock), because of their “poetic of stasis” (Kenner).

However, it cannot finally perhaps either reconcile or supersede them since it seeks a similar account of things through an economy or logic of the subjective, remaining largely focused on the individual perspective, expressed in language or following its logic. ’ Finally, many of the articulations of Modernism then perhaps remain radically rooted in and yet restrained by the very contradictions of modernity. These contradictions ought not to be avoided and rejected in the study of Modernism, but instead embraced.
