Ah Dieu! Apollinaire. 9 November 1918. - The Fortnightly Review
Martin Sorrell: So was Apollinaire the lone innovator? Was there anyone comparable writing in English? As Tim Kendall points out, it took David Jones, who’d served in that war, nearly twenty years to produce work such as "In Parenthesis". Apollinaire, on the other hand, wrote both spontaneously and experimentally, out of the here and now. Take "Flare", a poem of erotic charge – even yearning.
