Let us be set down at Queen's Crawley without further divagation
, and see how Miss Rebecca Sharp speeds there.
If the sheer number of papers all given sequentially in the more academic Divagations
conference occasionally led to muffled cries of 'pitie pitie
Bucolique," published in La Revue Blanche in 1895, and later collected as one of the poemes critiques in Divagations
, comprises one of these conversations.
Similarly, the "drawing" itself is anything but regular, clean-cut, geometric; instead it more or less continuously divagates as it goes, so that the viewer is invited, almost compelled, to pay those divagations
just as much attention (even closer attention) as he or she does the overall configuration made by the "drawing" or, for that matter, the piece as a whole.
Par analogie, on peut postuler que La Jalousie, type de roman un peu deroutant, livre au lecteur novice un semblant de subjectivite en plein delire--soit les divagations
incontrolables d'un jaloux qui interprete tout a travers sa passion--alors qu'elle obeit en realite a un schema structurel qui fait etat d'une necessite.
The problem facing any study of 'Mallarme and a subject (art or discipline)' is most succinctly expressed in the poet's own words: 'Les Divagations
apparentes traitent un sujet, de pensee, unique.
The handmade quality here is emphasized by the artist's reversal of the knit to its "wrong," or purled, side, revealing divagations
in fiber tension that would be much less visible on the smooth, or "right," side of the knit.
Millan gires full details of where each poem has appeared before, and follows the text of Divagations
(1897), giving variants as footnotes, and quoting from Mallarme's correspondence where relevant.
This sort of emphasis on the social conditions of the poet's work is present throughout Mallarme's texts, particularly the very texts most often cited in support of the attempt to make Mallarme into a philosopher: the Divagations
Loosely unified by the common thread of Mallarmean poetics, the two main divisions of Le Sacrifice de la sirene pursue two different objectives--the first part masterfully delivering an aesthetic analysis of Un Coup de des through intricate textual decoding and intertextual associations, and the second segment carving out a social context for Mallarme's ideas from selected readings in Divagations
I mean, I know what I think of Goldin's work; what interests me are my students' divagations
In his Divagations
, Mallarme speaks of Rimbaud's brief, unforeseeable appearance in French poetry, comparing him to some short-lived atmospheric perturbance: "Eclat, lui, d'un meteore, allume sans motif autre que sa presence, issu seul et s'eteignant" (CEuvres 512).
