Translation of Eric Mottram’s A Faithful Private 7 with excerpts from “Notes on Poetics” by T. Wignesan

(Note: With this post, I bring to a close EM’s pamphlet collection: Faithful Private, GENERA editions by Colin Simms, issue 13 (Place:?), 1976, n.p. Translation of No. 6: “Courbet, Elegy 8” I had already posted up on September 26, 2017.
EM’s “Notes on Poetics” appeared in The Journal of Comparative Poietics, Vol. I, n° 1 (Paris), 1989, pp. 37-44. Founder-Editor: T. Wignesan)

“Since the 1960s poetry readings have become seriously effective event in a poet’s life in Britain - that is, not some actor actorizing himself at the expense of the poet and the poem, but the interacting performance of poet, his own work and an audience. At least, in a small place. The large hall, probably these days with absurd electronic amplification, discourages interpenetration and encourages poet-demagogues, and keeps the poet apart and evasive - but, of course, some official establishment poets thrive on this, poet-laureates and the like. (…) During the 1970-1976 period when th Poetry Society, later the National Poetry Centre, in London, became for the first time a centre for truly contemporary poetry, we held regular readings, but also public interview-discussions - one poet at a time - as part of evenings billed as Poetry Information. (…) Poetry had been taken out of the classroom and the academic judgmental enclosure. (…) …and performance also came to include the long-playing record, the cassette, and the video-tape: the poet’s voice and physical presence. The speed of the poem, its sounds and rhythms were offered by their composer as part of poetry, not restricted to print typography. As with music and theatre, performance is the life of the work. Information and exchange of interests founded a poetics that could hold everything within the act of performance between writer, reader, audience and publisher. (…) Most poetry readings are recorded by someone, so that the (poet’s) commentary (on his work) and the performance become part of the poem, and as it is with recorded music, readings can, and often do, vary as - with any luck - the performances increase in number. They become part of a general poetics, too: no proper account of twentieth century poetry is possible without them. Poetics is both the sound and the typographic notation - and notational forms are endless, except for the pathetically classicist.” (JCL, pp. 37-38)

est-ce que vous avez envie de commencer ?
n'importe où
                                    ce que ne pas
                                    détritus ?
le baptisme est la tête sous l’eau
un prêtre coupe le sexe
                                    un examen de sang tenu à l’hauteur du ciel
                                    renouvelle les matériaux
                                    autrefois les mots 
                                    une léthargie qui prévoie
à présent des parties de la vie
                                    pas des conquêtes mais l’acceptation
                                    des dons et ne pas de montons
                                    ou les restes du festin
                                    mais les feuilles d’invitation
en avançant nous échangeons des morceaux
ayant d’orgasms dans l’un et de l’autre
comme on s’en fait avec des photos et des poèmes
                                    sans un plafond sur vos yeux:
                                    des trous bien définis de faite et l’ambition
                                    contribuent à faire celui qui agisse:
à l’autorité l’acolyte et le secrétaire 
caressent les poignées du pontiff
                                    le Mohave n’est pas silencieux 
                                    vous n’arrivez pas l’entendre
pas de Kalahari en (Grande) Bretagne
en s’excluant Fleet Street
Portland Place  Shepherds Bush
Great Turnstile          entendu avec facilité sur chaque
                                   signalement de rue dans la ville 
                                   si vous fermez les presses
                                   en dehors dans la parque où Shiva
                                   entre en tant que Herne
                                   unis pour toujours:
                                   partageant le beat aux couteaux:
                                   un étranger entre dans cette verdure
                                   les crevasses dans le vent d’antan
                                   les mauvaises herbes dans les fissures de la ville
                                   la glace rivet la terre à la forêt
le livre sterling on dit est en train de chuter 
les banquiers mangent leur repas avec hâte
la Presse trouve plus d’actualités:
                                  et vous connaissez-vous le remède ?
                                  Nous  oui
