By Wajdi Mouawad

Wajdi Mouawad signe, avec Le Poisson soi, un texte à l. a. fois fantomatique et intime, allusif et severe sur l. a. recherche des origines. Il renoue ainsi avec les thèmes qui ont marqué son théâtre, et plus particulièrement le cycle « Le Sang des promesses » (Incendies, Littoral, Forêts, Ciels). Enfant du Liban, vieillard en devenir, il s’inquiète de l. a. path à poursuivre et plonge le lecteur dans les notions, par lui subtilement embrouillées, de temps, d’avancée, de passage, de marche et de l. a. recherche d’un temps passé et d’un temps futur à ressouder pour, peut-être, arriver à les réconcilier.

The assortment Alive or useless , from which the contents

of poetry. His prior poetry turns out to lie a long way at the back of regardless of
similarity in subject and angle. He X-rays his period, its slo­-
gans and ideologies; he states a few disagreeable truths. He is
eloquent yet now not wordy. He has develop into a grasp at slicing
his personal poems to the bone. His vocabulary of necessities and
essences is distilled from a mammoth repository of poetic language,

ured irony. but, while a remembered panorama, for instance,
pushes his visions into the fact, he does now not desire a lengthy
hymnic line to show praise.
Heinz Piontek is, as this quantity of originals and trans­-
lations indicates, an terribly awake poet, conscious and
conscientious; to him, his finished craft is neither regimen
