| September 30, 2016 | admin | 0

By Jean-Luc Steinmetz

Depuis Verlaine, quelques poètes ont ecu le redoutable privilège d’être appelés "maudits". Mallarmé, Rimbaud, Corbière se sont vus décerner un pareil titre. Les deux premiers ont hardiment franchi los angeles barre de cette malédiction imposée. Tristan Corbière, quant à lui, n’a pas ecu los angeles même likelihood. Laissé pour compte malgré son distinct et admirable recueil des Amours Jaunes, qu’il appelait son "monstre de livre", il attend encore pour sortir de l’ombre, malgré l. a. renommée de son œuvre dans les will pay de langue anglaise et italienne. Une seule biographie le concernant, celle de René Martineau, publiée en 1905 et rééditée augmentée en 1925, a tenté de recomposer les levels mal connues de son lifestyles. Nul, depuis, n’a tenté de lui donner plus de réalité. Et, de fait, que dire d’un homme, né en 1845, dont ne restent que quatre lettres pour connaître un peu les douze dernières années de sa vie? C’ est pourtant ce qui fut tenté avec ce Tristan Corbière du XXIème siècle qui, combinant records, manuscrits, peintures et photographies, affiliant les intuitions, poursuivant des voies inusitées ou méconnues, tirant le fil des poèmes et recréant les voyages, en est venu à prendre l’importance que l’on voit, tout en décrivant los angeles plus surprenante découverte: trente pages inédites, dessins, gouaches, vers et proses de l’album Louis Noir. Voici donc un Corbière autant parisien que breton, autant fils à papa que bohème de stylish, autant peintre que poète, un autre décidément, pourvu de cette vie à peu-près dont il n’a jamais caché qu’il los angeles voulait ainsi, sort plus que contenu, cabotage, cabotinage et grand huge.
