maintains a website:
“A language with
a mysterious syntax” invades us, covers us with sensual charm, a
nostalgic music: this is the new collection of Denis Emorine
Letters to Saïda which invites us to decipher it, invites us
to participate in its birth: “co-(n)naissance.” Participative
birth of the world, of life and of death through love. “I
understand my life better/through you” (18) writes the poet and
“I know that dying exists.” And the words, taking their cue from
his assertions “fall over themselves in (his) mouth,”
indomitably, and proceed to the dreamed syntax “to keep a small
measure of eternity.”
~Stella Vinitchi Radulescu, Professor of French at Northwestern
