“Souffrons donc l’affection subite du langage.”

“It is a good direction to believe that this language which is so scored and impressed by the commotion of all of us since its birth can be arranged to in its turn impress significantly for the good of each individual. Let us endure the sudden affection of the language.”
W.S. Graham, ‘Notes on a Poetry of Release’ 

“C’est une bonne direction, celle qui consiste à croire que ce langage, depuis sa naissance si marqué, si creusé par notre brouhaha collectif, peut être disposé de manière à laisser à son tour une impression significative pour le bien de chaque individu. Souffrons donc l’affection subite du langage.”
W.S. Graham, “Notes sur une poésie de la libération”.
(traduction Anne-Sylvie Homassel)
