balance between food supply (= water) and food consumption (= fire), that is to say between energy resources and energy spending activity (ch. 1.3, CMG 126, 11-15), is reflected by the two main aspects of the regimen, viz. nourishment and effort (ch. 1.2, CMG 124, 6-8). Accordingly, the ‘power’ of

life awe-inspiring in its splendor but lacking the energy of Odysseus’s mental restlessness. Their life has come full circle, whereas the Apologoi present Odysseus’s life “as a process rather than a cycle artificially contrived” (Vivante 1970: 171). 24 The use of closed or deterministic prophetic time

Jacques Réda

Being There, Almost


Aaron Prevots

In Jacques Réda: Being There, Almost, Aaron Prevots studies the work of this major contemporary French writer since the 1950s—poetry, novels, literary essays, short prose, jazz histories. He particularly examines Réda’s explorations of place, including how the ‘world’s energy’ becomes the ideal dancing partner, poetry incarnate in one’s arms.
Réda embodies ‘being there, almost’ because he wanders with great wisdom yet renounces any glory in this metaphorical dance. He aligns us with the outer world’s rhythms and time’s passage. Fleeting waves of perception create a voluptuous, unified whole. In considering the arc of Réda’s works from 1952-2015, Aaron Prevots locates a progression from post-Baudelairean flânerie to commemoration of childhood, classical antiquity, fellow writers, jazz, physics, swing, theology, and trains.
