Reading the Rhythm

Clive Scott

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses Pierre Reverdy, his poem Gravitations, and his opinion and reflections of the reading of verses, of the aesthetic principles of Cubism, and of the experimental approach of calligrammes. This chapter largely focuses on the rhythmic, metric, and prosodic features of Reverdy's poems. In this chapter, the Cubist principles which were the source of meaning in Reverdy's poems, which are structural in relationships rather than in content, and which are more abstract and conceptual rather than concrete and autobiographical are discussed and analyzed.

Keywords:   Pierre Reverdy, poem, Gravitations, verses, Cubism, calligrammes, rhythmic, metric, prosodic, Cubist principles
