Followed by Swimming

Traduit par Amy Hollowell


In his text Why?, the poet Laurent Albarracin, true to his method based on analogy and tautology, which eventually join, inquires about the nature of things by asking a long series of questions that ressemble aphorisms. Starting with Angelius Silesius's famous line, '‘The rose is without why, it blooms simply because it blooms,’’ the text offers a reverse proposition, which involves obsessively questioning the thing so that it will bloom. The poetic language, between humor and speculation, endlessly explores the obvious and affirms the mystery. Through the litany of questions, there emerges both an ontogical exploration of things and the expression of a radical wonder, naive and childish, before them.
