Example text

The stylistic contours of such a paradigm are irreducible. A critique of the poetic subject will thus have to address the texts’ ef fects of meaning (ef fets de sens) and eventually evaluate poems through these ef fects rather than according to pre-established or everlasting criteria of literary criticism. The critique put forward by this book is in fact empirical. It consists in arranging a philosophical paradigm around the Deleuzian transcendental concept of becoming, a concept that is certainly not to be “applied to” poetic texts.

The past constitutes the heavy time in which no selection can take place, for it would have to occur between identical things and would no longer be a selection: it would be a repetition. If nothing occurs that will break the pattern of repetition, this past will predetermine the future. For time-as-new or time-as-change (timeas-selection) to be even thinkable, there must exist something radically dif ferent which, when mixed with the old, triggers of f the emergence of the new under the figure of the present.
