Celan / Bachmann

Chronique d’Anne-Françoise Kavauvea initialement parue dans  The Black Herald #1 

“Je suis entrée un peu comme une voleuse dans la correspondance entre Paul Celan (1920-1970) et Ingeborg Bachmann (1926-1973), Herzzeit, publiée chez Suhrkamp en 2008, encore inédite en français. Ma fascination pour l’œuvre de ce poète, suspendue entre la limpidité d’un langage dépouillé et les arcanes d’un univers tourmenté, dont les textes sont gravés dans la pierre et le sable, explique peut-être ce désir de m’immiscer dans l’intimité de cet échange entre deux êtres torturés par une angoisse existentielle et poétique. J’avais peut-être aussi envie de rendre un corps à celui qui avait choisi, ce 20 avril 1970, de disparaître dans les flots de la Seine depuis le mélancolique Pont Mirabeau, de découvrir quel homme se dissimulait derrière ce poète voué à l’universel.”
