Qu'est-ce que la poésie ? par Jean-Michel Maulpoix ou que dire de la poésie ? par Jean-Michel Maulpoix "Les prétendues définitions de la poésie ne sont, et ne peuvent être, que des documents sur la manière de voir et de s'exprimer de leurs auteurs" (Paul Valéry) La poésie est mal aimée de la critique.

20 Poets on the Meaning of Poetry We’ve been thinking about poet Meena Alexander’s incredible address to the Yale Political Union, in which she refers to Shelley’s 1821 essay, A Defence of Poetry. The English poet’s work famously stated, “Poets are the unacknowledged legislators of the world.” Alexander concludes: “The poem is an invention that exists in spite of history… In a time of violence, the task of poetry is in some way to reconcile us to our world and to allow us a measure of tenderness and grace with which to exist… Poetry’s task is to reconcile us to the world — not to accept it at face value or to assent to things that are wrong, but to reconcile one in a larger sense, to return us in love, the province of the imagination, to the scope of our mortal lives.” Other poets have attempted to interpret “what is deeply felt and is essentially unsayable.” Here are a few brief definitions of poetry by famous poets.

LibriVox Quelques notes complémentaires Quelques notes complémentaires pour une analyse linéaire de "Phares" de Charles Baudelaire (doc. n° 20) Dès le Salon de 1846, dans la section : "A quoi bon la critique ? ", Baudelaire déclare : Je crois sincèrement que la meilleure critique est celle qui est amusante et poétique ; non pas celle-ci, froide et algébrique, qui, sous prétexte de tout expliquer, n'a ni haine ni amour, et se dépouille volontairement de toute espèce de tempérament ; mais, - un beau tableau étant la nature réfléchie par un artiste -, celle qui sera ce tableau réfléchi par un esprit intelligent et sensible.

10 Sci Fi and Fantasy Works Every Conservative Should Read The left-wing science fiction writer China Miéville has compiled a list of “50 Sci Fi and Fantasy Works Every Socialist Should Read.” As a longtime reader of speculative and ”weird” fiction and qualified admirer of Miéville’s work, I thought it would be fun to offer a companion list for conservatives. I’m not suggesting that these books express conservative views as such. But they do raise questions for conservatives or develop ideas from which conservatives can learn. Partly for reasons of time and partly because I wanted to avoided overlap, my list is considerably shorter than Miéville’s: just ten works. I’ve also avoided the most obvious choices, such as Lord of the Rings.
