By Paul-Jean Toulet

Jorge Luis Borges tenait Paul-Jean Toulet (1867-1920) pour l'un des plus grands poètes français. Singulier destin que celui de cette determine haute en couleur : écolier indiscipliné, voyageur insatiable, Toulet vécut en France, à l'île Maurice, à Alger ; nègre de Willy, le mari de Colette, il fréquenta pendant ses années parisiennes Léon Daudet, Jean Giraudoux et Claude Debussy. Inclassable classique, il a su donner au madrigal, appelé par lui contrerime , une inquiète beauté admettant en son coeur l'ironie. Sensuels et mystérieux, anecdotiques et moqueurs, les poèmes rassemblés dans Les Contrerimes et les Nouvelles Contrerimes, marqués par leur concision, évoquent tout à l. a. fois les haïku japonais et les quatrains d'Omar Khayam, les épigrammes antiques et l. a. poésie d'Apollinaire. Ils nous promènent des cabarets des Halles à l'île Bourbon, du Béarn à Bénarès, de l. a. journey Eiffel au Tonkin ; suggèrent les plaisirs de l'ivresse et de l'amour ; esquissent des paysages peuplés de nymphes libertines. Ces vers charmants firent les délices des plus célèbres poètes, de Paul Claudel, qui en loua l'allure élégante et désinvolte , à Jacques Réda, en passant par Paul Valéry et Philippe Jaccottet.
