Christian Present

Christian Present est un Poète et Parolier Martiniquais, en quête du moi dans ses œuvres
en proie aux extérieurs de la nature humaine
qui sommeillent dans les contrées
les plus poussiéreuses de notre être
et qui pour une raison quelconque,
ou par un ennui mal maîtrisé,
cueille le fruit mûr de la pensée vacillante,
sur le double tranchant qu'est la vie.

Sa poésie est issue des cisaillements de l'être.
La matrice de ses recueils est l'être humain,
dans toute sa splendeur, héroïque et quelque fois méprisable,
gisant près de l'Autre,
cet aussi cet autre pointé du doigt qui quelque fois nous ramène a notre plus simple appareil,
oh combien détesté , notre moi.
L'être est curieux au gré des ses différents recueils déjà sortie et à ses collaboration dans le milieu de l’art Pictural, et musical « Je fouille mille corps ;
Mille ruelles ;
Sous les mille réverbères
De ma tendre et pleine lune »

Extrait de Saillies - 2014


Christian Present a Poet, lyricist and Podcaster from the caribbean island of Martinique, is in quest for the self in his work.

Plagued by non-human nature’s forces lying dormant in the fustiest lands of our being which for some reason or by a non-controlled boredom
harvest the ripe fruit of failing thought,
on the double-edge of life.

His poems originates from the exploration of the self.
His matrix is the human being,
in all his heroic and sometimes despicable magnificence, lying close to the Other,
This Other, pointed at, who sometimes bring us back to our primitive and hated self
His exploring nature is shown throughout his published anthology and his collaboration in the pictural and musical field.

“Je fouille milles corps;
Milles ruelles;
Sous les réverbères
De ma tendre et pleine lune.”
Saillies - anthology - 2014
