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 los angeles poésie -

Toutes les étendues lui sont ouvertures

Où qu’elle aille

Où qu'elle s’établit.

"Adonis, narrant, traduisant aussi, transforme l. a. 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 l. a. 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)

Ali Ahmad Saïd Esber est né, le 1er janvier 1930, à Qassabine en Syrie, dans une famille modeste. A dix-sept ans il publie un poème en empruntant au dieu phénicien Adonis, symbole de l. a. renaissance végétale, son pseudonyme auquel il restera fidèle. Son œuvre a été couronnée de très nombreux prix littéraires, en France, en Italie, en Turquie et au Liban.
