@Suzanne. I hope you'll love it... A poetry of the void, of the absence, in which words draw the hollow of existence (my English is definitely too bad to make possible to explain what I feel, sorry...).
Another line of verse, which I particularly love :
wrote:Et je sais, sur le chemin, que j'existe encore...
So simple, so meaningful...

@John: Roland Barthes' "Sur Racine" is a great study, even if much controversial. Its trendy to destroy Barthes'books in France now, but I go on reading them, finding in them an unconventional approach (which some of French academics despise, judging this approach not scientific enough - that's exactly the reason why I love "Sur Racine", because it's a book written with passion...)
La? dein Aug in der Kammer sein eine Kerze,
den Blick einen Docht,
la? mich blind genug sein,
ihn zu entz?nden.

Please stop apologising for your English. Just say what you have to say. We used to have an Argentine poster with very broken English, but he managed to convey his ideas without any problem and he never apologised. But your English is great.

Thanks, Tatz... :)
I'll try to... but sometimes it's frustrating.

Je suis sur que mon francais est parfait et que Proust et Flaubert sont stylistes chetifs en comparaison avec mois, sans me'excuser sans cesse. Vous voyez? :)

I know how frustrating it can be not to be understood repeatedly, day in day out in my own languagee, A-F, and Tatz is right, please stop apologizing when you have no need and should not. I at least hope i apprehend the quality of your thinking, your voice (poets know how to listen or they wouldn't be *grin*) and that's what matters, not syntactical integrity

I was going to do that too, Tatz
the only thing that stopped me
was having to transport accent marks
from Word via cut and paste. . .

Suz, W. is presently speeding through the Living Language French course. This in part owing to Marcel's Austria posts

Yes, you better...if not we'll cyber-donkey punch you...that's how we roll...I understand you completely and half the time I don't understand my own damn posts (they are jumbled crosswired (crosseyed and painless) shitstained thoughts on the state of the union (body and floating thought bubble) for the most part). I bought the first four books by louise gluck...isn't that a lovely name...gluck, gluck, gluck...I'd annoy the shit out of her. I wish she'd drink a big gulp next to me...and a book of stories by gogol. I think, though, I am pretty immersed, at this moment, well, not this precise moment, because I am typing, but during this basic and adjacent string of moments (that's a decent line...I'll pluck that for a poem or something....yes, i think i will) that is tic, tic, tic...pretty much floored by AR Ammons. The poem where at the end the line is(I don't have the book I think it is come prima): "i raise my hand" is um, I don't... ____________________..........ya understand? Well, it's grand and it makes the yellow and pink sunlight even more happy to be around me. O and I bought new brakes. That sucks.
