elocutory disappearance of the poet who abandons

In the 1966 introduction to Labyrinths, he referred to the allusions to previous literature that he used in "Silent discount tiffany cuff Links" as "airs," "consonant tunes," and "dissonant dreams," using words with deliberate musical connotations. In using these terms, Okigbo did not mean to refer to versification and the measured music of traditional prosody. To some extent, he had in mind what is described in this paper as symphonic structure. But he specifically wanted to draw discount tiffany cuff links to a distinctive imaginative form that in the 1960s he associated supremely with one of his favorite poets, Stéphane mallarmé.


Starting from late 1864 when "Hérodiade" was conceived, mallarmé thought about his poetry as discount Tiffany Cuff Links. In taking this view, he meant to distinguish between his conception of poetry and the conception in earlier poets whom he dismissed as mere versifiers. Pure poetry, he said in this regard, requires "the elocutory disappearance of the poet who abandons the initiative to words," leaving the poetic imagesto light up one another with mutual reflection like a virtual trail of fires upon precious stones replacing the breathing perceptible in the old lyrical blast or the enthusiastic personal direction of the phrase. (cited in Hartley 171).


This passage, which occurs in "Crise de vers," is the ultimate source of the conception of the poet as a silent observer standing discount tiffany cuff links and beyond his work. An artist of this description does not direct the reader. The direction is implicit in the structuring of the material as "a silent accord" or "a mute discount tiffany cuff links" between the different parts. The poet offers no explanation of what he is saying. He merely evokes through rhythms imposed on his material "the horror of the forest and the dumb thunder scattered in the leaves."
