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. L’hypothèse de Quentin Meillassoux consiste à affirmer que Mallarmé a caché dans son poème un mètre mystery, un Nombre particular, qui devait permettre de réinventer une poésie à l. a. fois moderne et toujours liée à l’antique règle du décompte. 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.

Naturally. She would have been arrested in any city, but not, I imagine, with quite such a sense of duty as in America. In the American Grain concludes with a couple of rather tendentious chapters about Burr and Edgar Allan Poe, two patriots who most readers of American history might have supposed anything but. Similar to the rest of Williams’ study, it is Burr’s lustfulness, and Poe’s unusual marriage (to his young cousin), that serve as the exemplary aspects of character. Oh, contradiction and paradox!

First they traded with the Skrellings, whose cheekbones were high, whose eyes wide, then fought them. Whereas Karlsefni and his men had shown white shields before, now they took red shields and displayed them. The Skrellings sprang from their canoes and they fought together. Karlsefni and Snorri were beaten. They fell back. Then it was that Freydis, Eric’s natural daughter, came out from her cabin.
