Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] We propose to reflect here on the idea of theater, as it arises in the poetic production of Apollinaire, to become then the aesthetic assumption of his plays of 1917 and 1918. This investigation leads us to focus the attention on the years 1907 and 1908, crucial period for the poetic evolution of the artist, which gives life to the "new and humanist lyricism" of which he speaks in a letter to Toussaint. This is the triggering of a new vision: the "show of fusion". Poetry, then theater, appears indeed as the art of fusion, a term with double value, aesthetic and hermeneutic: fusion of instruments and expressive resources, sensations and realities, demanded by Apollinaire in the Preface to Mamelles of Tiresias. This enthusiasm of demiurge leads us to the curtains of an unexpected theatrical scene: a 'mise en vers' of the spectacle of the new, contained in power in the three works with Rimbaldian resonances of 1908, Onirocritique, Le Brasier and The Engagement.
