« Qu'est-ce que los angeles poésie ?... Qu'est-ce que l'âme ?... Lorsqu'un poème, ou simplement un vers provoque chez le lecteur une sorte de choc, le tire hors de lui-même, le jetant dans le rêve, ou au contraire le contraint à descendre en lui plus profondément jusqu'à le confronter avec l'être et le destin, à ces signes se reconnaît l. a. réussite poétique.Telle est, bien sûr, l'ambition secrète et démesurée de tout auteur d'anthologie. S'il l. a. start pour lui-même, c'est pour d'autres qu'il los angeles termine et l. a. publie. Choisir tout ce qui lui paraît digne et able de provoquer chez le lecteur le choc de l. a. beauté, voilà l'objet de son attempt. C'est dire qu'il se trahit lui-même puisqu'il livre le mystery de ce qui le touche.Mon ambition est bien de donner ici l'essentiel de notre poésie, c'est-à-dire les plus beaux vers de l. a. langue française, ceux que je trouve tels, sans doute, mais avec l'espoir qu'ils le sont vraiment. »Georges Pompidou.
