Kerfol et autres histoires de fantômes by Edith Wharton

By Edith Wharton

Edition enrichie (présentation, notes, file, chronologie, bibliographie)

Les fantômes whartoniens se glissent dans ces interstices de silence oppressant, minéral ou granitique, dans « ce trou, béant, surgi soudain dans notre expérience ». Ils n’effraient plus, comme les fantômes anciens, par leurs apparitions spectaculaires et leur attirail gothique, mais par leur passage mystery et discret, le frôlement furtif de leur « tremendous absence » et de leur palpable présence, en bas de l’escalier, derrière l. a. porte de los angeles bibliothèque, ou bien à l’autre bout de l. a. desk – si près qu’on pourrait presque les toucher. J.-P. N.

Le recueil comprend : « Kerfol » / « Les yeux » / « Ensorcelé » / « Le miroir » / « Après coup ».

Inventario 2 reúne todos los poemas publicados en libro entre 1986 y 1991: Preguntas al azar (1986), Yesterday y mañana (1988), Despistes y franquezas (1990) y Las soledades de Babel (1991).

Inventario 3 contiene todos los poemas publicados en libro entre 1995 y 2001: El olvido está lleno de memoria (1995), La vida ese paréntesis (1998), Rincón de Haikus (1999) y El mundo que respiro (2001).

Miguel García-Posada dijosobre Benedetti...
«Tenía Benedetti el instinto de l. a. palabra creadora, l. a. capacidad de pellizcar el alma que solo poseen los poetas mayores.»

«Benedetti period, aunque algunos se escandalicen, un machadiano del verso, que sabía que l. a. poesía se produce en el tiempo o está abocada a l. a. nada.»

«Benedetti, hay que afirmarlo de entrada, y sus versos tenían, tienen, los angeles garra de los genuinos poetas populares.»
