Traduction de Jacqueline Risset, revue et corrigée pour cette édition.
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 l. a. première étape du grand roman initiatique d'une autre civilisation qui est los angeles racine de los angeles 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.
De 1967 à 1982, elle a été membre du comité de rédaction de los angeles revue Tel Quel. Ancienne élève de l'École normale supérieure de jeunes filles, agrégée d'italien, elle est professeur de littérature française à l'université « los angeles Sapienza » à Rome.
Pauline E. Hopkins (1859-1930), intelectual, activista y escritora, ha sido considerada por l. a. crítica como los angeles imperative responsable de crear el ambiente propicio para que en el rancio Boston de principios del siglo XX naciera un primer florecimiento de las letras afroamericanas. ? l. a. escritora negra más productiva de principios del siglo XX?

It amounted to a defect. And this after a fugue the night before, until bar-closing time, of beer and pizza, with or without Molly, his wife. ” Lars said, sipping his special drink. He felt weary: today trance-state had enervated him beyond the recall of the chemical elixir. ’ I know the rubric you’ve got to offer. Frankly I’ve heard it so many times I could—” Peter interrupted, in his agitated, husky, urgent voice, “Aw, the hell, you know what I mean. Bull! You never listen. All you do is go to heaven and come back with the word of God, and we’re supposed to believe as gospel every stupid thing you write down, like some—” He gestured, tic-like, his big frame shuddering under his blue cotton shirt.
To the KACH-man he said, “Weapons! ” There was not one weapon among them. “As regards the concomodies—” Henry Morris began. ’ You know. ” He gestured in irritation. “You know more about the six concomodies on the Board than anyone else in Wes-bloc. ” “I’m facing it,” Lars said calmly. He folded his arms, sat back. ” There was silence and then the KACH-man stirred and said, “That’s why they’d like you in uniform. You wouldn’t be facing any TV cameras. ” He left the sketches where they were on Lars’ desk.
I am calling, Mr. ” Surley Febbs, inside himself, fainted dead away. He had failed to read all the way down the notice. Of course the identity of the six concomodies on the Board was a matter of strict secrecy! And already he had told Mr. Rumford. Or had he? Frantically, he tried to recall his exact words. Hadn’t he merely said he received a notice? Oh God. If they found out— “Thank you, Mr. Febbs,” the female official said, and rang off. Febbs stood in silence, gradually hinging himself back together.
