Apollinaire’s ecstatic description of the beauty of a night sky lit up by shell-fire and flares is entirely convincing, but deeply shocking to anyone who – like me at the time – unconsciously expects all war poetry to be like Wilfred Owen’s.
Chronologically, the war poems fall into three groups: those written while Apollinaire was undergoing training in Nîmes, those written while he served in the artillery, and – a smaller group – those written while he served in the infantry.
Apollinaire’s excitement was shared by millions of people, and it is expressed vividly.

Guillaume Apollinaire was the pseudonym of Wilhelm Apollinaris de Kostrowitsky, the illegitimate son of an Italian army officer and a young Polish noblewoman.
Yet in correcting the proofs, Apollinaire rubbed out all punctuation and placed at the head of the collection a quite recent poem called "Zone," which is a sort of manifesto of modernism and, in form, less orthodox than the others.
Here Apollinaire demonstrates in metrical innovations the modernism which he preached for poetry in "Zone." There are poems made of snatches of conversation, of enumeration, and of simple notation which infuse daily banalities with lyrical magic.

 Guillaume Apollinaire - Apollinaire, Picasso, Mona Lisa, and other stories
On this day in 1911 the poet-playwright-art critic Guillaume Apollinaire was jailed, suspected of being involved in the theft of the Mona Lisa from the Louvre.
The circumstantial evidence which pointed to Apollinaire also pointed to his friend Picasso, and he too was arrested.
While Picasso was released almost immediately, Apollinaire was held in jail for almost a week, and not cleared until months later; the painting was not recovered until 1913, and not before eight forgeries had been sold to collectors.

Then from 1907 to 1912 Apollinaire was tumultuously involved with Marie Laurencin, a “wide-eyed, mischievous, slender” painter in whom, precisely “because she both yielded to him and escaped him, he found embodied … the unstilled rhythm of love and disappointment which stimulated him most profoundly” (the words are Shattuck’s).
Apollinaire was, by contrast, able to work exciting changes in the traditional French lines without subsiding into subjectivist sprawl.
Shattuck’s homely fidelity keeps close to the original, though Apollinaire’s variations in meter and rhyme (he prided himself on renovating the eight-syllable line and on revolutionizing masculine and feminine rhyme) are far more subtle and daring, as in the first line’s choriamb-like swing.

 Poetry Previews: Guillaume Apollinaire
Guillaume Apollinaire (1880-1918) played a central part in the avant-garde movement that swept through the French literary and artistic circles during the early 20th century.
Apollinaire is credited for introducing the word "surrealist" for the first time, which appeared in his introduction to the drama "The Breasts of Tiresias" (1918).
"Saffrons" exemplifies Apollinaire's strange and inventive use of what we now recognize as surrealism: "Dressed like hiccups playing harmonicas." However, this poem is very understandable on an emotional level: the metaphor of poison carrying through the poem in juxtaposition of beauty and life through the image of flowers (saffron).

With wit, erudition, and venom, Apollinaire concocts a Rabelaisian parallel universe, and slyly tells his own life story, from illegitimate birth to literary fame, in the process.

 Bradford Haas - Louis Zukofsky: Appollinaire
The Apollinaire paid well, but R[ené] could have used that money - paid very well, considering what I turned in was a post mortem of my Hen Adams, the first Joyce in French (vide chap II) and three chapters altogether doing their best to approximate in weirdest langvidge Debussy’s Quartet in G Minor.
We can also find another reason ‘why Apollinaire’: according to the scheme outlined in the letter of 10 October 1931, the idea was to ghost write a book for Taupin, therefore it had to be on a topic plausible for Taupin to author.
We see these traits in the APOLLINAIRE (which explains why Zukofsky took pains to let people know HE was responsible for choosing the quotations and their arrangement, and not Taupin; it was, after all, his ‘method’).
