Author: Aaron Prevots
Dans Esther Tellermann: Énigme, prière, identité, première monographie consacrée à l’œuvre de l’écrivain, Aaron Prevots met en lumière un regard poétique novateur sur des réalités tant intérieures qu’extérieures. Il montre comment Tellermann (1947-) explore l’intime du monde, ses textures et ses contours, ses terres insituables semblant s’entrecroiser, et le rêve et le mythe faits tremplin pour une traversée renouvelée de l’Histoire et du deuil. Il appréhende le caractère énigmatique de longues suites de chants dont la forme peut s’apparenter à celle de la prière, ainsi que les enjeux identitaires d’un dire singulièrement ouvert à l’Autre. En examinant des textes de 1999-2019, Aaron Prevots souligne le lyrisme décentré d’un poète majeur et la présence de ses pairs comme interlocuteurs.

In Esther Tellermann: Enigma, Prayer, Identity, the first book-length study of the writer’s œuvre, Aaron Prevots highlights her innovative poetic approach to inner and outer realities. He shows how Tellermann (1947-) explores the world’s innermost structures, its textures and contours, its indeterminate places that seemingly intersect, and dreams and myth as springboards for experiencing anew historical turning points and timeless rites of mourning. He considers the enigmatic quality of long suites of poetic song whose form can resemble that of prayer, as well as the stakes regarding identity when poetic expression foregrounds openness to the Other. In examining texts from 1999-2019, Aaron Prevots emphasizes this major poet’s decentered lyricism and the presence of fellow writers as interlocutors.
