By Guillaume Apollinaire
En 1913, Apollinaire publie Alcools, son most popular 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. travel 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. felony de los angeles Santé, ces poèmes ouvrent l. a. voie à un nouveau lyrisme. Partagés entre culture et modernité, ils reflètent l. a. créativité bouillonnante d'une époque sur le aspect de basculer dans le chaos de l. a. Grande Guerre.

Here too are the masses, tillers of the soil. And cells, ﬁghters, who lay down their lives for all the world. Here too are cemeteries, fame, snow and spates. 8 Compared with ‘The Rampage’, this is a very lyrical poem, not a dramatic script with an unpredictable result. It is an almost obvious description of a microscopic still life, namely of a histological picture of chronic inﬂammation provoked by Freud’s adjuvant in subcutaneous tissue. This was, incidentally, the theme of my ﬁrst scientiﬁc paper, so ‘In the Microscope’ is also a very personal poem, almost a page of a diary.
Sometimes, the literary career seems to be some kind of revenge or compensation. Of course, it may well be that poetry is ‘in the genes’. I am not sure. In some cases, poetry and art in general might well be a magniﬁcent personal attempt to cope with the imminent disorder, labelled by psychiatrists as a bipolar (manic-depressive) reaction, illness, or psychosis. In some cases, maybe, but not in all cases. The ‘poetic and artistic’ attitude is, in my experience, mostly some sort of group infection, not a genetic aﬀection.

Poetry and Virtual Realities Edwin Morgan Links between poetry and science, far from being rare and strange, are actually quite hard to avoid, if one takes the whole history of poetry into account. Well-known names line up to be considered: Lucretius, Dante, Milton, Goethe, Shelley, Leopardi, to which you might add Omar Khayyàm, famous in the West as a poet but more famous in his own country of Persia as a mathematician and astronomer, and Virgil, whose Georgics is a ﬁne poem but at the same time a manual of agriculture and animal husbandry, written by an author who was not a dilettante but himself a farmer.
