This can be my scan.


Hocquard's fiction Aerea dans les forets de big apple (1997) reinforces the poet's curiosity in augural house and in derivation, articulated in "Il rien" and in "La Ligne claire" respectively. classified a "novel," Aerea dans les forets de big apple is a prose piece created from seven sections that includes a number of characters in diversified destinations: big apple, the Mississippi Delta, Istanbul, the Bosporus, and particularly, a small, unnamed island. instead of contributing to an built-in unit that's likely entire in itself, the characters emerge on the subject of a couple of others after which fade from consciousness, as though their complete reason behind showing within the novel was once so as to add information and phonemic sort. "David, Zachary, Jessica, Sokrat. June. Medea. Montalban. Virginia, Remedios. Juan, Rosita," writes the narrator, "the interlaced letters in their names continue the fires of an alphabet that mirrors that which bums lower than the signal of Aerea, goddess of the woods, of looking, and of fishing."26 including similar to Louis Cranach's Eve striking within the narrator's workspace, the conversing voice, Adam, signs an information of legend and origins.

But the focal point of this narrative is somewhere else, for in it Hocquard elaborates on his concept of fiction. He observes that while fiction comes from the surface -from the ocean- the closeness and transparency of the island resists fiction: "The island, from each part, turns its again at the sea. It's a petrified abstraction and correctly discouraging for somebody who likes analogies." If by way of its density and colour the island resists fiction, the gap of fiction (perhaps its "aerea") is located no longer in a Baudelairian woodland of symbols that testify to a couple hidden fact yet within the disorienting reflections forged from multivalent photos. The woodland the following, is ny, and the narrator takes pains to disassociate legend and tale from the dense assemblage of constituent elements of the woodland: "Each department, copse, ditch, stump, piece of earth, fern, useless wooden, moss, rut, course, tracks, footprints, animal cry or birdsong every little thing is fastened. yet to this fixity, not anything will be connected, no tale, no character.... each one tree is a replicate, each one rock and echo. every little thing that's felt there, is visible there, or is heard there's already identified and but, new."

Like the woodland defined the following, the long island of Aerea is itself a woodland, one created from brick and mortar, metal, and glass. and prefer the bushes and rocks of the wooded area, the angles. and surfaces of the skyscrapers, spires, and home windows keep in mind one another in an never-ending association of mirrored image, exemplified in an account of a stroll via Wall highway on a vacation: "Around and above us," we learn, "Wall road was once remoted in its personal silence. via the sport of reflections the guts of new york was once pierced by means of its personal fake reminiscence: reflections of skyscrapers in puddles of water, reflections of facades in facades. the latest construction structures, all in blue or black glass walls, duplicated through reflect results the photographs of former construction projects."

If because the narrator claims, fiction is known as coming from with no, then this fiction is of a special nature, one Hocquard describes in "Il rien" as a narrative that "draws its pertinence now not from an out of doors yet from the gap it inaugurates" (PT. 56). no matter if it's the small island, self-sufficient and impervious to the surface, or the woodland - that is an analogous and but ever new - or the island of long island, growing its life from endless angles and reflections, for Hocquard tale and fiction come up as an augural area in a site of letters, phrases, and images. finally for Hocquard, the topic of a narrative is rarely an experience, an intrigue, or a few socially generated worth. As Hocquard states explicitly in "La Mercury bleu pale," the topic can be came upon "in the succession of pages, via two," as "the juxtaposition of scenes" (PT, 17). The literary textual content, we're reminded, is given in a deviation of which means and language (PT, 53). And lest we fail to remember, this deviation is that which creates fiction.


Emmanuel Hocquard is one in all France's prime post-68 poets. He served because the editor of the small press Orange Export Ltd. as well as over 30 books of poetry, he has released severe articles, a singular, and a movie. He has additionally translated works through Charles Reznikoff, Michael Palmer, Paul Auster, and others, and is the founder and director of "Un Bureau sur l'Atlantique," a company that fosters French-American poetic alternate. at the side of the Abbaye de Royaumont, he ran a chain of staff translation seminars through the eighties and nineties. numerous volumes were translated into English, and his paintings looks on-line at PennSound, the digital Poetry middle, and Raised in Tangier, he lives and works within the south of France.
