“LE TEMPS DES ASSASSINS : ÉLOGE LITTÉRAIRE DE TCHEN” sur D-Fiction

*

à découvrir/lire sur D-Fiction

Une ébauche sur l’accointance entre l’espace littéraire et l’espace criminel, le temps propre à l’écriture et la Révolution. Avec en post-scriptum un « J’accuse… » contre la mauvaise équation établie par Richard Millet entre la littérature et le mal.

“Lues et relues vingt fois les premières pages de La Condition humaine de Malraux. Obsessionnel retour sur les lieux du crime par lequel s’ouvre le roman avec cette phrase de Rimbaud en tête : « Voici le temps des assassins », que Henry Miller associe à l’exigence de formes nouvelles en littérature – lesquelles chez le poète ne sont pas étrangères à une refonte politique et morale des âmes et des corps, lui qui vers dix-sept ans écrivit une Constitution qui fasse honneur aux revendications de la commune.” – G. Mar 

 

Paul Stubbs reviews ‘Rilke in Paris’

*

RILKE IN PARIS
Maurice Betz (Translated from the French by Will Stone, Hesperus Press, 2012)

 *

 *

“Rilke, on earth, lived a life akin to a pre-natal being, one whose sensations in existence remained as homogenous and pure as his time spent in the womb. He rejected birth and death as a consequence for existence, determining that this paradox was the reason behind which he would discover the absolute, i.e. through his own modifications of reality. Jean-Paul Sartre writing of Kierkegaard said ‘The beginning of the thinker’s existence is analogous to a birth. This is not a rejection but a displacement of the beginning. Before birth there was non-being; then comes the leap…’. Every morning in Paris, amid the ash-heaps of dreams, Rilke awoke to the metaphysical and limbless stump of his own still absent body. He saw the world as if between the parenthesis of each new death, whether one of his own or that of another human being.” (Paul Stubbs)

Greer Mansfield interviews Paul Stubbs, poet & editor of The Black Herald / Bookslut, Oct. 2012

“Glancing at my map of current English-language poetry, one of the most tantalizing regions is one that — at least in my school of cartography — is centered around a magazine called the Black Herald. Edited by poets Paul Stubbs and Blandine Longre, it is a concourse for strong and original English-language poetry, publishing interesting new poets like Will Stone, Mark Wilson, and Siddhartha Bose. It has also published more established writers (Clayton Eshleman being an example), and it maintains a constant dialogue with the dead. Or perhaps more accurately: the “dead,” because in its pages the likes of Hart Crane, W.S. Graham, Cesar Vallejo, Georges Rodenbach, Osip Mandelstam, August Stramm, and James Joyce are blazingly alive in the company of the newer writers. (…) In addition to editing a quality literary magazine and publishing interesting writers new and old, Stubbs happens to be one of our day’s most striking and original English-language poets. His poems are metaphysical but visceral; they are often written in a jagged syntax, but they carry themselves in a rich, full-voiced music.”

(Greer Mansfield, Bookslut, October 2012)
