That he lumps love and friendship jointly in “La Puce” and “Le Poulpe” is therefore relatively unbelievable. whereas his relationships with males tended to be lucrative, people with ladies (at least with Annie Playden and Marie Laurencin) have been much less profitable. Apollinaire eventually recognizes this example, albeit implicitly, in “Le Hibou. ” Mon pauvre coeur est un hibou Qu’on cloue, qu’on décloue, qu’on recloue. De sang, d’ardeur, il est à bout. Tous ceux qui m’aiment, je les loue. (My terrible center is an owl Nailed, un-nailed, and nailed back. it's tired of blood and ardor. I compliment all those that love me. ) in the course of 1901-1902, whilst he used to be hired as a French show within the Rhineland, Apollinaire was once struck through the peasants’ perform of nailing owls to their doors—presumably to beat back the evil eye. In eleven a photo of Apollinaire smoking the same pipe seems to be in Peter learn, Picasso et Apollinaire: les métamorphoses de los angeles mémoire 1905-1973 (Paris: position, 1995), p. sixty two. considering The Bestiary 29 the start, he handled the picture as a picturesque element, one of the that he famous in the course of his remain. 12 no longer till later, whilst he was once trying to find animals to incorporate in Le Bestiaire, did he notice how heavily the crucified owl’s challenge resembled his personal. even if the resource of Apollinaire’s pain isn't distinct, the truth that it impacts his center issues to an amorous etiology. uninterested in being suffering from the article of his affection, he portrays himself as a martyr to like. just like the owl, whose plight remembers that of Christ at the pass, he's a sufferer of gratuitous cruelty. That this adventure happens persistently makes it much more excruciating. No faster does his middle get over one wound than it gets one other. because the wording is ambiguous, it's most unlikely to inform no matter if Apollinaire is complaining approximately one girl or a number of ladies. An past draft is way extra particular. “Mon pauvre coeur est un hibou,” he wrote to Marie Laurencin firstly in their dating, “Que j’ai repairé à votre porte” (“My bad center is an owl / That i've got nailed for your door”). thirteen even if he's unfortunate in love, Apollinaire concludes, he's lucky to have a few strong neighbors. Their affection is a continuing resource of pleasure and an excellent comfort. finishing the record of animals linked to rhetorical tropes in Le Bestiaire, the remainder 5 woodcuts depict verbal symbols. because the topic of “Le Cheval” isn't pointed out through identify, in conception it represents an implicit image. regardless of this temporary obstacle, the reader fast perceives that the animal is Pegasus. Any lingering doubt is got rid of through Dufy’s representation, which depicts a winged horse—the image of poetic inspiration—impatiently pawing the floor. Like his winged steed, the poet’s mind's eye is usually acknowledged to “take flight. ” an analogous precept buildings the relation among the Dove in “La Colombe” and the Holy Ghost, which spreads its protecting wings over the area. In 1908, whilst Apollinaire wrote “Le Hibou,” he and Marie Laurencin had only in the near past met.
