Abstract

Max Jacob's 'poèmes en prose' come in the wake of the revolutionary 'poème-illumination' by Rimbaud. They offer a discontinuity which contracts lengths and distances in a fragmented vision acquiring the traits of metaphysical painting. This fragmentary nature, suspended in an ever-possible but never-defined polysemantic dimension, draws a disquieting and oneiric urban picture, the dramatic force of which finds a salvational escape in childhood memory.
XLIV, 1-2
