By Guillaume Apollinaire

En 1913, Apollinaire publie Alcools, son most excellent 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 thoughts : los angeles 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 l. a. 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 l. a. criminal de l. a. Santé, ces poèmes ouvrent los angeles voie à un nouveau lyrisme. Partagés entre culture et modernité, ils reflètent los angeles créativité bouillonnante d'une époque sur le element de basculer dans le chaos de l. a. Grande Guerre.
