There is also a marked proximity in time, for the first poems of Calligrammes were written in December and early , im. Yet these affinities do not prevent most readers being struck-and rightly so-by considerable differences in tone, style, and theme between the two volumes. Calli- grammes, particularly the first section entitled "Onde,s,'' reveals a novelty of acc-ent and composition which clearly rests on aesthetic assumptions dif- ferent from those underlying the main poems of Alcools, assumptions that can conveniently be drawn together under the concept of modernism. Although a modem note is.
The shadowy and obsessive nature of the poet's states of mind is reflected in elliptical, elusive, and sometimes herxnetic expression. Like the great Symbolist poets, ApoUinaire finds deep aesthetic satisfaction in the beauties of obscurity and allusiveness of utterance. The force with which an urge. But, with som. This is so even in "Zone, " the opening poem but the last to be written, which in its early lines makes the first forceful statement of the new enthusiasm for the modern world which was to burst out in Calligrammes.
The initial optimism, how- ever, is not sustained. The final mood that is established is one of anguish and suffering, and the poem ends with the poet assuming what is his most charact:e ristic role throughout the volume, that of the lonely wanderer in the hostile and ominous environment of the modern city. In,Calligrammesl on. In the first part of ' Liens'' and ''Les Fenetres" 1 the poet is no longer posited a. The shadowy, claustrophobic atmosphere of earlier poems now gives way to urgent, syn- copated r hythms and to the play of sensuous color and light. It is not only in Apollinaire that this remarkable change in outlook is encountered.
His ability to manipulate his environment, and his capacity for experience, had been infinitely increased. Now he seemed the triumphant master of his own destiny. AU the prewar move.. Apollinaire stands out as the most masterly innovator in an avant-garde hectically devoted to experiment, n. Central among these aesthetic ideas was. To be able to mirror such a multiple fornt of consciousness the work of art had to abandon linear and discursive structures, in which events are arranged.
Essentially this conception led Apollinaire to a radical dislocation of poetic structure. To create an impression of multiple and simultaneous con- sciousness, perceptions and ideas are abruptly juxtaposed in. Many poems of Alcools had already been characterized by elliptical syntax and collocations of disparate im. It was this effort of synthesis that, for Apollinaire, produced the "simultanisr' vision, insofar as it short..
What he admired above aU in Picasso was the sheer imaginative boldness with which the painter had broken with all previous conceptions in Western painting. C'est un nouveau-ne qui met de rordre dans l'univers pour son usage personnel, et aussi afin de faciliter ses relations avec ses semblables. Ce denombrement a la grandeur de l'epopee.

PC, p. In this poem, therefore, simultanist forxn is directly expressive of the creator's personality and power of vision. Here the emphasis falls on the autonomy of the work of art that has been created: it stands out as an arbitrary but fasci- nating construction whose existence is justified by its status as a deliberately fabricated object.
The distinction, however, is not absolute. A similar judgment can be made of the use of language in the conversa- tion poems. The question of language is as central to modernism as the notion of simultaneity. One of Apollinaire's principal convictions. This amounts to the destruction. In this sense Apollinaire can be said to have stripped the remaining ornaments. But here also there are implications that are formal and internal. It is because he is defeated in his attempt to find an. The poem thus becomes a self-reflexive object, in which it is the internal ech.

This is, to an extent, a rehabilitation of mimesis as a literary mode, a confidence in the power of literature to render the essence of unadorned reality through attentive observation.
It was at this time that he began to formulate the concept of surprise as a key element in a modernist aes- thetic and to suggest, in "Sur les Propheties," that. There does seem to be some influence of Chagall behind ApoUinaire's first attempts in "A Travers rEurope" to use the kind of apparently unmotivated imagery that points in the direction. The 4.

The second is no less so in. Apollinaire's conflicting emotions within the framework of a na,r rative fable, set in the heart of modern Paris. The past and the present, fatalistic obsession with the loss of love and delight in the multiplicity of the modern world, are all brought together, in perfect balance, in what is indeed a new fonn of twentieth-century merveilleux: a sense of the real suffused with per- sonal vision.
M erry. For all the novelty of accent and outlook of Calligrammes, Apolli- naire's sensibility remains one haunted by uncertainty and doubt. This is what dis. Where they were condemning subjectivity as outmoded and self-indulgent, he declares only partial loyalty to the bright new world of extrovert energy and admits.

This explains why, on occasion, even the modem world, and the future itself, can lose their dynamic associations for the poet and become equivocal and ominous.

Not written 11 untill, after the poet had gone through the maturing tutmoil of war, thjs poem presents, more powerfully than any other in the section, the com- mitment to modemis.
The picture it gives of the modern poet as an innovator and a prophet radically enlarges that notion as it was expressed in "Sur les Propheties. His famous lecture in , ''Lesprit Nouveau et les Poetes'; [The New Spidt and the Poets J, leaves no doubt that he saw visual or spatial poetry as an important new development, and had he lived he would probably have pursued it much further. In a phra. While Apollinaire was certainly encouraged in his thinking about this concept by a desire to emulate his painter friends, as is demonstrated by his original intention to pubUsh tbe poems separately under the title "Et Moi Aussi Je Suis Peintre'' 1, too, am a painter], the calligram remains indisput..
Yet, intriguingly, his implementation of his bold plan has served to obscure the originality of his thought and has led to some misunderstanding of the poems. The confusion arises from what seems like a dramatic change of 11 heart between the publication of the first caUigram, Lettre-Ocean," and those that followed. Arbouin6 welcomed the poem as a revolutionary innovation but expressed the important reservation that the new technique 5. The phrase is from the article by G. Arbouin on ''Lettre-Ocean'' published in.

Inwardly he must have felt that. That is indeed what happened. After "Lettre-Ocean," in which a global view of the modem world is imprinted on the page in an exploded structure of radiating lines and pulverized language, the calligrams that imm. Any intention of expressing a simultane- ous consdousness seems to have disappeared, so that som. But to do so is to misunderstand t.
This significance must be considerable when, as in most of Apollinaire's poems, the language is richly lyrical. Whether in compact or languor-ous form-in '"Paysage" or in "Il Pleut" -the calligrams encapsulate much of his most incantatory writing. In a nonfigurative poem like ''Lettre--Oc,e an," the eye ca.

The shape of the lovers in nPaysage" can 'b e interpreted pictorially in different ways, with considerable consequences for the overall meaning of the poem,.
The same is true in many other poems. Nor are the visual implications necessarily restricted to those associated with the object that is pictured. In calligrammatic compositions, no less than in visual art gen- erally, graphic form itself can be directly expressive. It is instructive, from this point of view, to compare the three different typographical representa..
It is observable that Apollinaire becomes increasingly sensitive to the pos- sibilities of spatial expression. In th. Again, if a figurative intention is present in the later works, such as " "Aussi Bien Que les Cigalesll and "Eventail des Saveurs, '' these poems also make an impact as a pleasing pattern.
A freer approach to layout is to be found e,ve,n in conventionally,. Apollinaire realized that one of the most potent features of the calligram is the heightening effect it has on the W'Ords from which it is made, and that it thus lent itself to his constant endeavors to restore high expressiveness to language. One of the ways. The one-line poem "Chantre," which he added at the la. Poems such as uVisee" and uEventail des Saveurs,n however, not only multiply the power of "Chantre'' tenfold, by accumulating a succession of such "autono- mous" lines, but confer visual as well as auditory eloquence on the state- ments by the beauty of their graphic composition.
More boldly, the expres- sions that are encapsulated in other calligrams are in a much lower poetic ,register. These can be prosaic, repetitive slogans "Au. Nothing could be more mistaken than to think of their shape, whether pictorial or more abstract, as incidental or merely decorative.

The synthesis was perhaps easiest to achieve in the period covered by ''Etendards" and "Case d'Annons. He was proud that, as an intellectual and a poet, he could prove the equal of the other recruits mostly much younger than himself in becoming a man of action, and he derived immense satisfaction from mastering the pragmatic skills of soldier- ing.
The sense of being part of a vast collective effort and the experience of comradeship, brought. Echoing the proud statement of a liber- ated personality in "Le Musicien de Saint-Merry' '-'Tal enfin le droit de saluer des etres que je ne connais pasn-the enlisted poet can say with equal force but more literal truth, "Me void libre et fier panni mes compagnons. The loneliness and the apprehension that could afflict him are strongly expressed in "La Colombe Poignardee et le Jet d'Eau, " while the reinforcement of the basic polarities of his nature, under pr-essure of the war situation, is densely fonnulated in one line of 'Visee".
The sense of purpose felt in his life spills over into his creative activity. As in the prewar period, his self-confidence is expressed equally in vigorous simplicity of expression and lively fonnal innovations, represented on the one hand by the easy dis- cursive verse of.. It is a fact that Apollinaire's battery was stationed during this period April-June in a small wood.
His letters are full of delighted accounts of its plant and animal life and the hours of leisure he enjoyed within it, in relative , safety, writing and making rings out of shell cases. But the poems-''Echelon" especially, with the white wound of the trenches seen beyond the wood and Death dangling at the perimeter-heighten this real-life situation by a process of fabulation in which the wood takes on the associations of a privileged, almost magic, sanctuary.
A sense of security, therefore, spreads throughout t. This is not escapism or obliviousness 1 of death and danger, whose presence is acknowledged in the background and occasionally filters into the poems. At this and aU subsequent stages love is, of course, one of the major ways in which Apollinaire tried to sustain his vision. The significant group of poems here are those written for Madeleine Pages. The dying loves for Marie laurendn and Louise de Coligny' add to the singular richness of love themes in the volume, generating elegiac poems in that vein of condensed and evocative lyricism of which he was a consummate master.
The sequence of quatrains in uLueurs des Tirs" which he wrote for Marie conceal ambiva- lent depths of meaning beneath a limpid surface with a skill that he rarely. What is special about the poems to Madeleine, however, is the way in which they are deliberately made to fulfill a vital need for spiritual replenishment and creative stimulation. Particularly in the a. In a real sense, as ''Dans 8. His passionate erotic lia. She inspired most of the love poems in "Etendards'' and "Case d Armons," but after ApoUinaire left Nlmes for the 1 front there was a rapid cooling off on her side-hence the growing notte of melanc.
There followed a rapid courtship by letter, culminating in a proposal in.
During this time he continued to correspond with Lou as well as Madeleine, but the majority of his love poems from May are inspired by Madeleine. The metaphoric connections that are woven so persistently between the battlefield and the distant object of the poet's dreams draw together two widely different realities and, by enlarging the poet's awareness of both, allow him to t:ranscend his immedi- ate situation.
Remarkably, the escalating erotidsm of the poems is made to fulfill a sim- ilar function. The whole violence of war is colored by the poet's sexual long- ing and becomes the expression, not of a destructive aim, but of a fierce cel- ebration of passion. This is not a Freudian hypothesis about the link between sex and aggression, but rather an attitude of quasi-religious awe at the convulsion which shakes humanity. It is an attempt to humanize and make sense of violence by see- ing it as an expression of a vital urge which ultimately transcends its death..
Undoubtedly the greatest challenge to his powers as a poet was that of finding a convincing form and style in which to convey his epic vision of the war, without insen. The solution is found in a constant striving to elevate events to a mythic dimension; beyond the notions of death and destruction. In other poems "Chant de! There is ample evidence in the poems from the last months of Apolli- naire's service that he was aware of the real horrors of war.

It is at once a definitive expression of the anarchy of war and yet, in the way the wild sweep of event:s is artistically channeled, a demonstration of the poet's control over disorder. War for him was a total and complex experience whose contradictions can be reconciled only within a heightened poetic vision. His achievement is that his war poetry as a whole successfully embodies that vision. The domi-.

This same point is made by Adema, pp. Indeed, it was one of Apollinaire's favorites, an example, in his own.
In November Les Soirees de Paris published an article by him which consists mainly of quotations from the painter's. A phrase in the condusion is particularly significant : j'l. The statement as a whole. Collage, anonymous voices, fragmentation, juxtapositions between space and time, are not new in Apollinaire's work, but in 1. Lockerbie has, in addition, pointed out parallels with Picasso',s early cubism [GA 51 pp. More convincing, as an indication of Delaunay' s relationship to the poem, may be the role of color words in lines 1 and 34; always chosen by Apollinaire for their rhyth- mic and emotional effects, they are, in the opening line of "Les Fenoetres,'' directly related to Delaunay' s ideas about color and about nin,eteenth-cen- tury color theories Greet.
But see also Lockerbie, The poet seems atypically absent from his own poem, except at the end when he shares in or takes over the painter's powers and the poe:m itself becomes a window opening onto new forms and colors. The notion that the poem derives exclusively from external stimuli, however, has not as yet been satisfactorily clarified. Lockerbie points out. The title, for example, sugg. Fragxnented lines may evoke Delaunay's atelier or his art 1, , ; the same and other lines may be interpreted as snatches of conversation overheard by the poet; and the role of place-names or of adjectives derived from place..
It is, however, Apollinaire's own overwhelming reaction to a painter's work, and not that work as such, which dominates this poem as well as the other two major poems. Here, the poem expresses a lyrical apprehension of space and time-and becomes a triumphant form of simultaneity. A poetic transformation of the kind of nineteenth-century color theory Delaunay attacked discussed by Imdahl, in Vriesen and Imdahl, pp. Despite these conceptual implications, colors float.
The style of these lines, while not so rhythmic and sonorous as that of line 1, can hardly be called prosaic when one considers the role of phonemes in lines , the imagery in lines , the mysterious tenninology of line 6, and its control over line 7.

Line 8 might refer to either present or past but, in the context of line 9, it probably refers to the past. The use of the past, in line 9, is significant because it fuses two possibilities -a fragment of conversation and a fragment of memory. The image of the window, here and at the end of the poem, evokes the series of window pictures by Delaunay, possibly one painting in particular. The use of the future 10 , present 11 , and imperfect 12 creates a sense of temporal simultaneity. Spatial simultaneity may be stressed by the ambiguou. One thinks of an artist whose mediurn is paint rather than words.
From the light created in line 12, the whole -o f 'line 13 seems to emerge. In the final version, beauty, paleness, and color are in ambivalent apposition.

At the beginning of the 18th century there was a rough sort of organisation of the orchestra, but it was less organized than is generaly realized.
The orchestra as we know it begins with Haydn, and owes its development mainly to the new style of composition in which form was all important and counterpoint left to musty professors, a style which originated with the Italian composers of the early eighteenth century. The development of the orchestra in the 19th century cannot be dissociated from the other developments of music which went on at the same time. Thus it has come about that in our day the orchestra has come to be the vehicle for the expression of the most complicated musical thought. No composer at the present day, it may safely be said, has attained the perfect balance of sensuous and emotional beautv which we find in Mozart.
With regard to modifications in the composition of the orchestra, it seems more desirable to reduce its size than to augment it. Both players and composers ought to realize that an instrument only justifies its existence by having a tone and a style of execution which no other instrument possesses.
