Édition enrichie d'Yves Bonnefoy comportant une préface et un file sur l’œuvre.
Voici l’heure sinistre de l. a. nuit,
L’heure des tombes qui s’ouvrent, celle où l’enfer
Souffle au-dehors sa peste sur le monde.
Maintenant je pourrais boire le sang chaud
Et faire ce travail funeste que le jour
Frissonnerait de voir… Mais, paix ! D’abord ma mère.
Oh, n’oublie pas, mon cœur, qui elle est. Que jamais
Une âme de Néron ne hante ta vigueur!
Sois féroce mais non dénaturé.
Mes mots seuls los angeles poignarderont ; c’est en cela
Que mon âme et ma voix seront hypocrites ;
Mon âme! aussi cinglantes soient mes paroles,
Ne consens pas à les marquer du sceau des actes!
(Acte III, scène II).

No nineteen-year-old could have been having a better time than I was. Dinner was a trip to the cookhouse, astern. We were handed a fresh mackerel, cooked in batter, which we ate in our ﬁngers, throwing the scraps up to the gulls. These were experiences to be cherished for a lifetime and I was being paid. Not much, perhaps, but to be paid for a training can’t be bad. Another job Bill Blewett found himself was on a long liner, a small craft converted from the dying pilchard ﬂeet. Sanctions had been imposed by Anthony Eden on Italy, which was the chief customer of Cornwall’s pilchards.
Neither of us much fancied our chances of getting our ‘Certiﬁcat d’Etudes Franc¸aises’. We tried to make a fair balance between work and play, and then the snow fell and the balance tilted towards play. There was a little place in the nearby mountains, Alpe d’Huez. The skiing was very good, one of the lodgers said, and she knew the farmer there who had a large barn, and he was prepared to let the students sleep in the hay loft, above the cows. His was the only farm there, apparently. So, oﬀ we went.
Down goes the arm. The ground net sweeps it away. The train’s net is lowered; ahead are the hanging pouches. Shooting through the mesh of the waiting net, we see the pouches gathered and swept on to the ﬂoor of the van. It all worked splendidly. The visuals were safely in the can. The men came down to the studio, we recorded their voices and they ﬁtted the picture very well. Nobody would know that their voices had been laid on afterwards. But, there was a problem. How to get rail beats to ﬁt the counting and the ﬁnger movements of the trainee.
