Publisher: French List

When Guillaume Apollinaire was sent to the trenches during World War I, he had already published his groundbreaking book of poems, Alcools, inspiring artists of the budding Surrealist movement and making a foundational mark on twentieth-century literature. The letters he sent to his fiancée Madeleine Pagès while fighting on the front in Champagne offer an unprecedented look into the life and mind of this literary great. Ranging from memories of his childhood in Rome with his mother (a Polish noblewoman) to his reflections on literary giants like Racine and Tolstoy, the letters also chronicle his daily life as a soldier in the brutal Great War. Letters to Madeleine is a moving portrait of a poet facing one of humanity's starkest realities, and it will be of interest not only to fans of Apollinaire but to those interested in personal accounts of the First World War as well.

Guillaume Apollinaire Books, Guillaume Apollinaire poetry book The Heresiarch and Co Authors: Guillaume Apollinaire
Publisher: Exact Change
Published Date: 1965
Categories: Fiction
The French writer known as Guillaume Apollinaire (Wilhelm Apollinairs Kostrowicki, b. 1880 in Rome to a Polish mother and an unknown Father), is most widely remembered as a groundbreaking modernist poet, author of the internationally influential collections Alcools and Calligrammes. But in France, Apollinaire's prose has always been equally well regarded. This volume of short stories about heretics, provincial romantics, and adventurers in crime was Apollinaire's literary debut in 1910, and only just lost the Prix Goncourt that year to Colette's La Vagabonde. Making full use of the author's knowledge of obscure historical, ecclesiastical, and geographical information, these stories rely neither on the dream, nor on juxtaposition, but nonetheless represent a technique that Andr Breton would later call a "formula" for Surrealism - producing a "music... like gold pebbles rolled in a torrent."

Il pratique le calligramme (terme de son invention designant ses poemes ecrits en forme de dessins et non de forme classiques en vers et strophes). Il est le chantre de toutes les avant-gardes artistiques, notamment le cubisme, poete et theoricien de L Esprit Nouveau, et precurseur du surrealisme dont il a forge le nom. Entre 1902 et 1907, il travaille pour divers organismes boursiers et commence a publier contes et poemes dans des revues. Autres titles de cet auteur sont: L Heresiarque et Cie (1910), Alcools (1913) et Les Trois Don Juan (1914).

George Herbert Poem
 by George Herbert

Full of rebellion, I would die,
Or fight, or travel, or deny
That thou has aught to do with me.
O tame my heart;
It is thy highest art
To captivate strong holds to thee.

If thou shalt let this venom lurk,
