Michel Galiana's last comments on poems and poets

  • (8/5/2008 4:09:00 AM)

    The French title prompts me to paraphrase Paul Valéry:
    'Le jour se lève... Il faut tenter de vivre! '

    (also a superb poem, by the way)

  • POEM: *** Australianisation *** by Sulaiman Mohd Yusof (8/5/2008 3:41:00 AM)

    As another commentator wrote, I've nothing new to say that was not said in the previous 100 comments. Except that Miss Trystal Wright and Australia should be delighted to be celebrated in such brilliant way...

  • POEM: Watchman's Song by Michel Galiana (10/30/2007 4:26:00 AM)

    Note of the translator:
    A possible interpretation. The « horn » is the compulsive wish for
    publicity and long-lasting acknowledgment (“ivy wreath') with which the
    author of speculative poetry (« leader of the horsemen of the wind »)
    may be possessed, but to which he should prefer relative anonymity
    (night) , or he will run the risk of enslaving (“shackles”) his genuine
    inspiration and talent (« dream », « guitar ») to transient trends and
    fashions (“laws” and “flaws”) , just to comply with the prevalent
    economic priorities (“the living” and their “plaster” and their “cities”)
    or marketing devices ('echo', 'ladder') aiming to hold chance in
    check ('too great odds', 'parodying the gods') .
