Christian Prigent : l'effacement poétique à l'œuvre

Abstract : According to Prigent in A quoi bon encore des poètes ?( “Why have more poets anyway?”), considering the issue of the social effacement of poetry, poetry by definition has always already disappeared. Effacing poetry is the creative process which brings about new poetry through the negation of past poetry, as two of his works, Commencement and Grand-mère Quéquette, best illustrate and explore. If they go through issues of aporia, or exploration of visual language or of the pre-verbal, the conclusion is nonetheless that poetry’s effacement stays its condition for existence, not disappearance
