Armistice of 11 November 1918/2018 – Wilfred Owen: Dulce et Decorum Est (Poem)

      

Dulce et Decorum Est

Bent double, like old beggars under sacks,
Knock-kneed, coughing like hags, we cursed through sludge,
Till on the haunting flares we turned our backs,
And towards our distant rest began to trudge.
Men marched asleep. Many had lost their boots,
But limped on, blood-shod. All went lame; all blind;
Drunk with fatigue; deaf even to the hoots
Of gas-shells dropping softly behind.

Gas! GAS! Quick, boys!—An ecstasy of fumbling
Fitting the clumsy helmets just in time,
But someone still was yelling out and stumbling
And flound’ring like a man in fire or lime.—
Dim through the misty panes and thick green light,
As under a green sea, I saw him drowning.

In all my dreams before my helpless sight,
He plunges at me, guttering, choking, drowning.

If in some smothering dreams, you too could pace
Behind the wagon that we flung him in,
And watch the white eyes writhing in his face,
His hanging face, like a devil’s sick of sin;
If you could hear, at every jolt, the blood
Come gargling from the froth-corrupted lungs,
Obscene as cancer, bitter as the cud
Of vile, incurable sores on innocent tongues,—
My friend, you would not tell with such high zest
To children ardent for some desperate glory,
The old Lie: Dulce et decorum est
Pro patria mori.

Wilfred Owen
(1893 – 1918)

Hervé Prudon: Devant la mort. Poésie

Auteur de la Série Noire, Hervé Prudon est mort en 2017 d’un cancer annoncé. Les deux derniers mois de sa vie, il les a consacrés à écrire des poèmes qui témoignent avec lucidité de son dernier combat : revendication de la solitude, détachement, conscience de la mort qui vient, souci de celle qui reste seule. Ils dessinent au-delà de la mort la personnalité d’un homme radical, porteur d’une douleur existentielle qu’il cherchait à conjurer.

Écrits dans l’urgence, ces textes brefs et nerveux acquièrent un supplément de vigueur, de force et d’acuité. En dépit des circonstances, des traits d’humour viennent tempérer la sèche gravité du propos, loin de tout cynisme, de tout pathos. Ce court testament est à la fois une leçon de stoïcisme et un morceau de tendresse humaine à vif.

«Atteint d’un cancer diagnostiqué en août 2017, Hervé Prudon se savait condamné. Durant les deux derniers mois de sa vie, où il lui était devenu impossible d’écrire le roman qu’il avait ébauché, il remplira deux carnets de moleskine noirs d’une écriture tremblée. Une centaine de poèmes qui tous parlent de la mort à venir et frappent par leur lucidité et l’urgence dont ils sont un puissant témoignage. Ils dessinent en creux la personnalité d’un homme, porteur d’une douleur existentielle qu’il chercha toute sa vie à conjurer par la légèreté.» Sylvie Péju

Hervé Prudon, né le 27 décembre 1950 à Sannois (Seine-et-Oise) et mort le 15 octobre 2017 à Paris, est un écrivain, journaliste et scénariste français, spécialisé dans le roman policier et la littérature d’enfance et de jeunesse. Hervé Prudon laisse derrière lui une vingtaine de romans et des poèmes.

 

j’étais tremblé trempé de mon septembre
j’ânonnais dans ma tête en scaphandre
un dictionnaire de rimes à rien
mourir était mon programme court
écrire déjà était mort de fatigue et silence
c’était un premier pas vers ma longue absence

Stephen Parker: Bertolt Brecht. Eine Biografie

Stephen Parkers Brecht-Biografie setzt neue Maßstäbe, jubeln die KritikerInnen einstimmig – auch wenn Brecht hier nicht gerade sympathisch daherkommt: Als Heuchler, der anderen den Kommunismus predigte, während er gerissen um seine Honorare feilschte und Grundstücke kaufte; Neidhammel, der andere Künstler schlecht machte und sich selbst lobte; politischen Opportunisten und “sexbesessenen Chauvinisten” lernt FR-Kritiker Wilhelm von Sternburg Brecht kennen, betont aber vor allem die Fairness, die der britische Germanist Stephen Parker dem Dichter in diesem nach der Struktur des klassischen Dramas aufgebauten Tausend-Seiten-Werk angedeihen lässt: An Brechts literarischem Genie hat Parker keine Zweifel.

In der taz verdankt Ambros Waibel dem Buch ganz neue Einsichten, etwa in Brechts Verhältnis zu seinen Eltern. Parkers umfangreiche Recherche und Empathie für Brechts komplexen Charakter hebt auch Norbert Meyer in der Presse hervor, “Parkers Brecht-Biografie erinnert an die Vermessung eines literarischen Gullivers mit tausend feinen Fäden”, meint Michaela Schmitz im DlF über das faktengesättigte Buch: Dass Parker im Gegensatz zu anderen Biografen Brecht nicht durch die “ideologische Brille” betrachtet, verbucht sie ebenfalls als Gewinn. In der Welt unterhält sich Richard Kämmerlings mit Parker über Brecht.

Zum 120. Geburtstag erscheint in deutscher Sprache die endgültige Darstellung von Bertolt Brechts Leben und Werk. Dieses Prädikat hat sich das Buch des englischen Germanisten und hervorragenden Brechtkenners Stephen Parker durch eine Reihe von Vorzügen erworben.

Hier wird zum ersten Mal das gesamte verfügbare Wissen über den Autor und dessen Arbeit dargeboten und zum Erzählen gebracht. Die lebendige und detailgenaue Darstellung eines aufgrund der politischen, persönlichen und literarischen Verhält­nisse am Abgrund angesiedelten Lebens – nicht die chronolo­gische Registratur – bilden das hervorstechendste Merkmal. Von außen kommend und mit einem unvoreingenommen neutralen Blick zeichnet Parker ein Bild der verschiedenen Lebensstationen und Schaffensperioden Brechts.

Kenntnisreich vollzieht er die damaligen wie heutigen parteiischen Tendenzen nach, so dass sie in ihrer historischen und literaturhistorischen Konstellation erkennbar werden. Engagement für die Sache und Liebe für das Werk Bertolts Brechts sind Stephen Parkers Antriebskräfte. Sein Enthusiasmus begleitet den Dichter von früh an durch alle Entwicklungen und bringt ihn uns in seiner ganzen Widersprüchlichkeit nahe.

Cyrille Offermans: Dagboeknotities. Een iets beschuttere plek misschien

Heel 2017 schreef Cyrille Offermans aan wat je nog het beste zou kunnen omschrijven als een intellectueel journaal: een verzameling notities, beschouwingen, herinneringen, observaties en essayistische commentaren op gelezen boeken en gebeurtenissen in de wereld.

Dat de barre werkelijkheid voortdurend zijn plaats op de voorgrond opeist, zegt genoeg over onze tijd. Het boek (en dus het jaar) begint en eindigt met de doffe ellende in Syrië.

Daartussen presenteert zich een baaierd aan onderwerpen – van de Franse verkiezingen en de afnemende tekenvaardigheid van de schooljeugd tot en met uiteenzettingen over bibliomanie, de betekenis van carnaval, de eerste woordjes van een kleinkind of de ziekte van een vriendin.

Er is alles in de wereld. En er is alles in dit boek.

Cyrille Offermans (Geleen, 8 april 1945) is een Nederlandse schrijver, essayist en criticus. Hij publiceert met name in De Groene Amsterdammer, Vrij Nederland, De Standaard en Raster. Bij het laatste literair tijdschrift werkte hij tevens als redacteur. Hij publiceerde meer dan twintig boeken in uiteenlopende genres, vooral essayistiek in het grensgebied van literatuur, filosofie, cultuurgeschiedenis en politiek. Zijn werk werd diverse malen met prestigieuze prijzen bekroond.

Diane di Prima: The Poetry Deal. San Francisco Poet Laureate Series No. 5

The Poetry Deal is the first full-length collection of individual poems in decades from legendary feminist Beat poet, Diane di Prima.

Framed by two passionate, and critical, prose statements assessing her adopted home city, The Poetry Deal is a collection of poems that provide a personal and political look at 40 years of Bay Area culture. Often elegiac in tone, the book captures the poet’s sense of loss as she chronicles the deaths of friends from the AIDS epidemic as well as the passing of illustrious countercultural colleagues like Philip Whalen, Pigpen from the Grateful Dead, and Kirby Doyle.

She also recalls and mourns out-of-town inspirations like Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, Audre Lorde, and Ezra Pound. Yet even as she laments the state of her city today, she finds triumph and solace in her own relationships, the marriages of her friends, the endurance of City Lights, and other symbols of San Francisco’s heritage.

Born in Brooklyn in 1934, di Prima emerged as a member of the Beat Generation in New York in the late ’50s; in the early ’60s, she founded the important mimeo magazine, The Floating Bear, with her lover LeRoi Jones (Amiri Baraka). In the late ’60s, she moved to San Francisco, where she would publish her groundbreaking Revolutionary Letters (1971) with City Lights. Her other important books include Memoirs of a Beatnik, Pieces of a Dream, Recollections of My Life as a Woman, and Loba. She was named San Francisco Poet Laureate in 2009.

“The Poetry Deal is fresh flame from a revolutionary fire that continues to burn. Every woman of every age should carry it in a purse with their pepper spray. Diane is the ultimate weapon.”—Amber Tamblyn, author of Dark Sparkler

The Written World. The Power of Stories to Shape People, History and Civilization by Martin Puchner

The story of literature in sixteen acts—from Homer to Harry Potter, including The Tale of Genji, Don Quixote, The Communist Manifesto, and how they shaped world history

In this groundbreaking book, Martin Puchner leads us on a remarkable journey through time and around the globe to reveal the how stories and literature have created the world we have today. Through sixteen foundational texts selected from more than four thousand years of world literature, he shows us how writing has inspired the rise and fall of empires and nations, the spark of philosophical and political ideas, and the birth of religious beliefs.

We meet Murasaki, a lady from eleventh-century Japan who wrote the first novel, The Tale of Genji, and follow the adventures of Miguel de Cervantes as he battles pirates, both seafaring and literary. We watch Goethe discover world literature in Sicily, and follow the rise in influence of The Communist Manifesto. Puchner takes us to Troy, Pergamum, and China, speaks with Nobel laureates Derek Walcott in the Caribbean and Orhan Pamuk in Istanbul, and introduces us to the wordsmiths of the oral epic Sunjata in West Africa. This delightful narrative also chronicles the inventions—writing technologies, the printing press, the book itself—that have shaped people, commerce, and history. In a book that Elaine Scarry has praised as “unique and spellbinding,” Puchner shows how literature turned our planet into a written world.

Martin Puchner is the Byron and Anita Wien Professor of English and Comparative Literature at Harvard University. His prize-winning books range from philosophy to the arts, and his bestselling six-volume Norton Anthology of World Literature and HarvardX MOOC (massive open online course) have brought four thousand years of literature to students across the globe. He lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Jean D’Ormesson: Ik leef altijd

Er bestaat slechts één roman, en daar zijn wij tegelijkertijd zowel de verteller als het onderwerp van: de Geschiedenis.

Al de rest is een schaamteloze kopie. Deze wereldroman vertelt de Geschiedenis eeuw na eeuw en laat ons de avonturen en ontdekkingen van de mensheid herbeleven.

De Geschiedenis is zowel oermens, Romein als Napoleons minnares; ze begroet de boekdrukkunst, de Nieuwe Wereld en de moderne wetenschappen en voelt zich thuis in Jeruzalem, Byzantium, Venetië en New York.

Ik leef altijd is een meesterwerk vol ironie en blijmoedigheid, en een intellectuele autobiografie van de auteur.

 

Jean d’Ormesson (1925 – 2017) was een groot Frans schrijver, filosoof, journalist en lid van de Académie Française. Hij schreef meer dan 40 boeken, fictie en essays. Drie dagen voor zijn overlijden finaliseerde hij zijn laatste boek, Ik leef altijd. Bij publicatie werd het meteen nummer 1 in Frankrijk.

Correspondence Pablo Picasso and Gertrude Stein

Pablo Picasso and Gertrude Stein. Few can be said to have had as broad an impact on European art in the twentieth century as these two cultural giants.

Pablo Picasso, a pioneering visual artist, created a prolific and widely influential body of work.

Gertrude Stein, an intellectual tastemaker, hosted the leading salon for artists and writers between the wars in her Paris apartment, welcoming Henri Matisse, Ernest Hemingway, and Ezra Pound to weekly events at her home to discuss art and literature.

It comes as no surprise, then, that Picasso and Stein were fast friends and frequent confidantes. Through Picasso and Stein’s casual notes and reflective letters, this volume of correspondence between the two captures Paris both in the golden age of the early twentieth century and in one of its darkest hours, the Nazi occupation through mentions of dinner parties, lovers, work, and the crises of the two world wars. Illustrated with photographs and postcards, as well as drawings and paintings by Picasso, this collection captures an exhilarating period in European culture through the minds of two artistic greats.

The English Patient by Michael Ondaatje wins the Golden Man Booker Prize

The English Patient by Michael Ondaatje (Bloomsbury) has been crowned the best work of fiction from the last five decades of the Man Booker Prize. The Golden Man Booker winner was revealed at the Man Booker 50 Festival in Royal Festival Hall at Southbank Centre.

The winner of this special one-off award for the Man Booker Prize’s 50th anniversary celebrations was chosen by the public.

The Golden Man Booker Prize, a special one-off award to celebrate the 50th anniversary in 2018, crowns the best work of fiction from the last five decades of the prize, as chosen by five judges and then voted for by the public.

The English Patient by Michael Ondaatje is set in 1945.

The English Patient explores the lives of four very disparate war torn people, a young woman and three men, who take refuge in a damaged villa north of Florence as the war retreats around them.

In an upstairs room lies the badly burned English patient, alive but unable to move. His extraordinary adventures and turbulent love affair in the North African desert before the war provide the focus around which the vivid tales of his companions revolve.

His very presence will forever change the destiny of those around him.

Them. A Memoir of Parents by Francine Du Plessix Gray

Tatiana du Plessix, the wife of a French diplomat, was a beautiful, sophisticated “white Russian” who had been the muse of the famous Russian poet Vladimir Mayakovsky.

Alexander Liberman, the ambitious son of a prominent Russian Jew, was a gifted magazine editor and aspiring artist. As part of the progressive artistic Russian émigré community living in Paris in the 1930s, the two were destined to meet. They began a passionate affair, and the year after Paris was occupied in World War II they fled to New York with Tatiana’s young daughter, Francine.

There they determinedly rose to the top of high society, holding court to a Who’s Who list of the midcentury’s intellectuals and entertainers. Flamboyant and outrageous, bold and brilliant, they were irresistible to friends like Marlene Dietrich, Salvador Dalí, and the publishing tycoon Condé Nast. But to those who knew them well they were also highly neurotic, narcissistic, and glacially self-promoting, prone to cut out of their lives, with surgical precision, close friends who were no longer of use to them.

Tatiana became an icon of New York fashion, and the hats she designed for Saks Fifth Avenue were de rigueur for stylish women everywhere. Alexander Liberman, who devotedly raised Francine as his own child from the time she was nine, eventually came to preside over the entire Condé Nast empire. The glamorous life they shared was both creative and destructive and was marked by an exceptional bond forged out of their highly charged love and raging self-centeredness. Their obsessive adulation of success and elegance was elevated to a kind of worship, and the high drama that characterized their lives followed them to their deaths. Tatiana, increasingly consumed with nostalgia for a long-lost Russia, spent her last years addicted to painkillers. Shortly after her death, Alexander, then age eighty, shocked all who knew him by marrying her nurse.

Them: A Portrait of Parents is a beautifully written homage to the extraordinary lives of two fascinating, irrepressible people who were larger than life emblems of a bygone age. Written with honesty and grace by the person who knew them best, this generational saga is a survivor’s story. Tatiana and Alexander survived the Russian Revolution, the fall of France, and New York’s factory of fame. Their daughter, Francine, survived them.

Francine du Plessix Gray is a regular contributor to The New Yorker and the author of numerous essays and books, including Simone Weil, At Home with the Marquis de Sade: A Life, Rage and Fire, Lovers and Tyrants, and Soviet Women. She lives with her husband, the painter Cleve Gray.

Jérôme Peignot: Typoèmes. Poésie visuelle

Jérôme Peignot, romancier, essayiste, est aussi l’auteur d’une œuvre poétique consacrée à interroger l’écriture dans sa matérialité, proposant de celle-ci une lecture typographique ludique.

Dans ce recueil imaginatif et facétieux de typoèmes, chiffres, lettres, palindromes, anagrammes, esperluettes, virgules… sont autant d’images alphabétiques nouvelles pour “retrouver l’étymologie graphique des êtres et des choses”.

Une poésie visuelle concrète qui révèle ainsi, par l’invention, l’humour et l’impromptu, “les mécanismes graphiques jusque dans leurs intimes arcanes, et partant, témoigne qu’ils ne sont pas lettres mortes”.

Jérôme Peignot, poète et écrivain, a publié une trentaine d’ouvrages, régulièrement réédités, dont Typoésie (Éditions de l’imprimerie nationale, 1993 réée. 2005), Typoèmes (Seuil, 2003) et Les Jeux de l’amour et du langage (10/1, 1974 rééd. 2009). Ces dernières années, il creuse le sillon de la poésie et publie des sonnets dans la revue Conférence ou en recueils (Éditions des cendres, Éditions de l’amandier).
