Traduction de Jacqueline Risset, revue et corrigée pour cette édition.

Edition bilingue.


Peut-on encore aujourd'hui aimer Francesca, être troublé par Ugolino, trembler aux tourments des damnés de l. a. Comédie? L'Enfer de Dante, poétique et médiéval, n'a-t-il pas pâli irréparablement auprès des Enfers tout proches, et actifs, que notre siècle n'a pas encore fini, semble-t-il, de susciter?

En fait, l'imagination créatrice de Dante est si puissante, et si précise, qu'elle semble décrire par avance, parfois, l'inimaginable horreur moderne. Le gigantesque entonnoir de l'Enfer, qui se creuse jusqu'au centre de l. a. terre, est dépeint comme le réceptacle de tout le mal de l'univers, comme une sorte de sac où viennent s'engouffrer tous les noyaux, tous les atomes de mal épars sur los angeles planète. Mais nous lisons aussi autre selected dans L'Enfer, plus que le catalogue effrayant des péchés et des châtiments possibles, plus que l'archétype du roman noir, il correspond pour nous au départ de l'exploration, à los angeles première étape du grand roman initiatique d'une autre civilisation qui est los angeles racine de l. a. nôtre.


Jacqueline Risset est une poète française née en 1936 à Besançon. Elle est également critique littéraire, traductrice et universitaire, en particulier spécialiste de Dante et auteur d'une traduction de référence de l. a. Divine Comédie.

Example text

It is Aeneas’ first sight of Italy, as indeed it looks still to the traveler coming from Greece—a low line on the horizon. And the heroes who have laid down their lives for this Italy fought on both sides. ” In this endeavor he made opponents and enemies whom he silenced and punished in various ways. One of his critics and opponents, Carlo Levi, was sent into a sort of exile in a small poverty-stricken town in Cal­ abria, a town so poor that its inhabitants claimed that Christ, on his way through Italy, had stopped at Eboli, and never reached them.

In Book 11 Aeneas, his camp no longer besieged, proceeds to the burial of the dead. He mourns over the body of Pallas and sends it off with his arms, his warhorse, and a huge escort, to his father. He gives envoys from the Latin city permission to bury their dead, and Drances, an enemy of Turnus, announces his intention to seek peace. Evander mourns over the body of Pallas and sends word to Aeneas that his “right arm / . . owes . . 210–12). Now, as the Latins bury their dead, the discontent with the war, fanned by Drances, grows and is increased by bad news that arrives from the city that Diomedes the Greek champion was building in Italy, and whom the Latin envoys had counted on for support against the enemy he had fought at Troy.

It is a recall of Dido’s question as she realizes who her visitor must be: “Tune ille Aeneas quem . . 617). And the reminiscences are not just verbal; subject matter and character are borrowed too. The same Charon ferries spirits across the same river and refuses again to take a living passenger at first. ” And there are even wider resemblances—the special place in both poems for suicides, and for those who died for love. 854–55), with the difference that in Dante the souls who have finished purgation drink the water of Lethe and go to Paradise, where in Virgil, except for those who go to Elysium, they go, after drink­ ing the water of Lethe, back to life in a fresh incarnation to become the Romans.
