Abstract

Jacques Roubaud and How Fashioning Sonnets Becomes a Game (Olga Amarie)

The present study is intended as an introduction to the reading rules of by Jacques Roubaud. More precisely, it is designed to interpret a playful and multilingual reading of rather than as a display thereof. We hope that, through an explanation of these rules, we may be able to offer a coherent exposition of Jacques Roubaud’s sonnet theory. In addition, as we shall see, is a distinctly nonuniform text, which makes the search for uniform rules far more problematic than it might be otherwise in a more traditional body of work. can arguably serve as the archetypical example of a text under formal constraint. The most used form in is that of a sonnet, a short poem with a highly organized structure. The device itself, fourteen lines and a strict rhyme scheme, is not very old, first attested in the thirteenth century by the Italian poet Giacomo da Lentini. But in writing , Roubaud decided to do without the rigid structure, which is by far the most popular and complicated, with very few variances, form of poetry. Thus, while the formal constraint used in this text is conceptually restricted to the sonnet, the game of GO, and multilingualism, the obstacles which it poses in the reading domain are very intricate.
