This volume closely follows Guillaume Apollinaire’s search for self-knowledge through eight poems of Alcools. The study analyzes the dramatic personae and metaphors found in these poems and broaches ideas of the changing nature of the self, fragmentation and reintegration, dispersion, montage and catharsis in the poet’s work of 1913.
