Le Livre II (al-Kitâb): Hier Le lieu Aujourd'hui

By Adonis

Ai-je le droit de me plaindre ?

Et à qui ?

Lorsque le soleil lit les tréfonds de mon âme,

et que je lis les siens,
Je ne vois nulle différence

entre les enfants de Byzance

et les collines d'Alep qui scintillent.

Comme le soleil, est l. a. poésie -

Toutes les étendues lui sont ouvertures

Où qu’elle aille

Où qu'elle s’établit.

"Adonis, narrant, traduisant aussi, transforme los angeles douleur en une épopée. l. a. douleur devient un chant qui restitue les morts dans l. a. parole des vivants. Les disparus habitent désormais le chant poétique. Le blanc de los angeles mémoire devient silence nécessaire au surgissement du poème. Les morts sont nommés, désormais inscrits dans cette traversée de los angeles vie."

Houria Abdelouahed (Extrait de l. a. préface)
