Abstract

VOLUME 2. GROS PLANS: CONTEMPORARY INDIVIDUAL POETIC PRACTICES Hugues Azérad and Emma Wagstaff La différence, c'est que d'une certaine façon la transcendance réintègre la page [. . .] [La transcendance], c'est de travailler la question du sens, de l'apparition du sens, dans le langage. Finalement par le langage, ce qui m'intéresse, c'est . . . [créer] une image qui bouge. (Anne Portugal)1 In the series of articles that constitute "Gros Plans", the work of established figures is presented alongside that of more recent or less well known poets without any intention to set up clear lines of influence between the generations. The articles represent a variety of approaches, on the part of both critics and the practitioners discussed. That the latter are not easily assigned to groups or movements says less about their work than it does about the relative lack of importance of such movements in the contemporary poetic scene. Different strands of poetry all retain a special status for poetic language, either separated from the world or still in direct reference to it. This alternative constitutes two ways of being "metaphysical", and also applies to lyricism: even form can become lyrical in the musical, rhythmic sense.
