By Quentin Meillassoux

Un coup de dés jamais n’abolira le hasard est composé par Mallarmé, dans sa model finale, en 1898, l’année même de sa mort. Le poème constitue l’une des ruptures littéraires les plus radicales de los angeles modernité : lignes éclatées sur tout l’espace de los angeles double web page, jeu sur los angeles taille des caractères empruntant au procédé des affiches, multiplication des incises qui déroutent los angeles lecture. Mais son énigme l. a. plus profonde tient peut-être à son contenu : une intrigue, à peine suggérée, dont le sens, l’étrangeté continuent aujourd’hui d’échapper à une pleine élucidation.

Une research est alors menée, qui tient à los angeles fois de l’étude littéraire, de l. a. chasse au trésor et de l’enquête policière à los angeles Edgar Poe. On y découvre progressivement que le Nombre n’est autre que los angeles somme des mots du poème et que cette idée – apparemment fantaisiste – devait pourtant être à los angeles resource, pour Mallarmé, d’un geste poétique révolutionnaire et d’une rigueur sans pareille.
