  • "Impressionismo" è il nome che è stato dato ad una certa forma di osservazione quando Monet, non contento di usare gli occhi per vedere le cose o il loro aspetto come tutti gli altri avevano fatto prima di lui, ha posto la sua attenzione su ciò che accadeva nella sua retina, così come un oculista avrebbe esaminato la propria vista".

  • "Contro i sentimenti siamo disarmati, poiché esistono e basta - e sfuggono a qualunque censura. Possiamo rimproverarci un gesto, una frase, ma non un sentimento: su di esso non abbiamo alcun potere".

Jacques Prévert / Daniel Gerhartz | Quicksands / Sabbie mobili



Quicksands

Demons and wonders
Winds and tides
The sea has gone far away
And you
Like seaweed softly stroked by the wind
Stir dreaming in the sands of our bed
Demons and wonders
Winds and tides
The sea has gone far away
But in your half open eyes
Two small waves wait
Demons and wonders
Winds and tides
Two small waves to drown me.




Sabbie mobili

Dèmoni e meraviglie
Venti e maree
Il mare si è ritirato già in lontananza
E tu
Come un'alga dolcemente dal vento accarezzata
Nelle sabbie del letto ti agiti sognando
Dèmoni e meraviglie
Venti e maree
Il mare si è ritirato già in lontananza
Ma nei tuoi occhi socchiusi
Due piccole onde sono rimaste
Dèmoni e meraviglie
Venti e maree
Due piccole onde per farmi annegare.



Sables mouvants

Démons et merveilles
Vents et marées
Au loin déjà la mer s'est retirée
Et toi
Comme une algue doucement caressée par le vent
Dans les sables du lit tu remues en revant
Démons et merveilles
Vents et marées
Au loin déjà la mer s'est retirée
Mais dans tes yeux entrouverts
Deux petites vagues sont restées
Démons et merveilles
Vents et marées
Deux petites vagues pour me noyer.

Jacques Prévert / Maximilien Luce | Chanson de la Seine, 1945



The River Seine’s song

The Seine is lucky
She has no worries
She takes it easy
By day and by night
And she flows from her spring
Gently, quietly
And without foaming
Without overflowing her banks
She’s leaving for the sea
Passing through Paris.

  • "Occhio per occhio e il mondo diventa cieco"!
  • "An eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind"!

Jacques Prévert | Kiss Me / Embrasse-moi / Baciami, 1946



Twas in a street of the City of Lights
Where ’is always dark, where there’s no air
And winter like summer, there ’is always winter.

She was on the stairs
Him next to her, her next to him
‘Twas night
