Désâmé by Patrice Desbiens

By Patrice Desbiens

« Désâmé », c’est du Desbiens typique et classique. Un lecteur familier y retrouvera des effets vus ailleurs, assonances, comparaisons, buildings syntaxiques en parallèle, mots fétiches même.

L’originalité de ce recueil réside dans los angeles nuance nouvelle des thèmes et photos obsédants. Une originalité troublante de vérité. Mine de rien, parmi d’autres thèmes, celui de l. a. mort qui s’y profile, et los angeles sienne entrevue de bien plus près qu’avant. À ce thème s’allie, un peu plus appuyée, sa pratique de l. a. poésie : rapports entre le poète et l. a. poésie, entre le poème et l. a. gangue de vie dont il s’extrait.

« Ce titre, Désâmé, indique en tous cas assez clairement que l’expérience de désenchantement et de désœuvrement (de déréliction ?) qui suscite le poème touche aux fibres de l’être. Peut-être davantage, ici, que dans ses précédents opus, cette expérience en est une d’écriture, Desbiens élaborant dans l. a. première partie de son livre, judicieusement intitulée « Italiques », un paintings poétique aussi humble que malicieux, aussi désarmé que désarmant :

J’écris à l. a. main
j’écris sur du pain
sans savoir
de quelle encre
le beurrer.

Je ne sais pas
de quel poème
vient le poème. »

Tristan Corbière : "Une vie à-peu-près" by Jean-Luc Steinmetz

By Jean-Luc Steinmetz

Depuis Verlaine, quelques poètes ont european le redoutable privilège d’être appelés "maudits". Mallarmé, Rimbaud, Corbière se sont vus décerner un pareil titre. Les deux premiers ont hardiment franchi los angeles barre de cette malédiction imposée. Tristan Corbière, quant à lui, n’a pas european los angeles même probability. Laissé pour compte malgré son detailed et admirable recueil des Amours Jaunes, qu’il appelait son "monstre de livre", il attend encore pour sortir de l’ombre, malgré los angeles renommée de son œuvre dans les can pay de langue anglaise et italienne. Une seule biographie le concernant, celle de René Martineau, publiée en 1905 et rééditée augmentée en 1925, a tenté de recomposer les levels mal connues de son lifestyles. Nul, depuis, n’a tenté de lui donner plus de réalité. Et, de fait, que dire d’un homme, né en 1845, dont ne restent que quatre lettres pour connaître un peu les douze dernières années de sa vie? C’ est pourtant ce qui fut tenté avec ce Tristan Corbière du XXIème siècle qui, combinant files, manuscrits, peintures et photographies, affiliant les intuitions, poursuivant des voies inusitées ou méconnues, tirant le fil des poèmes et recréant les voyages, en est venu à prendre l’importance que l’on voit, tout en décrivant los angeles plus surprenante découverte: trente pages inédites, dessins, gouaches, vers et proses de l’album Louis Noir. Voici donc un Corbière autant parisien que breton, autant fils à papa que bohème de stylish, autant peintre que poète, un autre décidément, pourvu de cette vie à peu-près dont il n’a jamais caché qu’il l. a. voulait ainsi, variety plus que contenu, cabotage, cabotinage et grand huge.
