Laforgue's ‘Dimanches’ (Derniers Vers, III)
This chapter discusses Lafogue, a free-verse poet of the line, where the subject contains conflicting tonal and expressive impulses, where the textual is frequently undermined by the verbal and non-textual, where rhythmic coherence is dismantled by the different kinds of metrical impropriety: fragmentation, equivocation, and divigation. In this chapter, Laforgue's Dimanche is studied and analyzed in terms of syllabication, rhyme, and scansion.
