Édition et traduction de l'anglais (États-Unis) par Marguerite Yourcenar

"Le live performance et le movie ont familiarisé le public européen avec l. a. musique des Negro Spirituals ; leurs paroles au contraire restent moins accessibles à l'auditeur de langue française, dépaysé, même s'il sait l'anglais, par ces formes dialectales propres aux nègres de États du Sud, ces mots anglo-saxons transformés et comme fondus par los angeles voix chaude des hommes de couleur. Et cependant, ces textes, et pas seulement los angeles musique qui les accompagne, sont souvent d'authentiques chefs-d'œuvre. Dans ce patois si particulier, en dépit ou peut-être à reason des stumbling blocks d'une langue étrangère, reçue de ses maîtres avec les premiers rudiments de l'esclavage, souvent nouvelle pour lui et imparfaitement apprise à l'époque où certains des grands Spirituals furent chantés pour los angeles première fois, le poète aframéricain a réussi à exprimer, avec une intensité et une simplicité admirables, ses rêves et ceux de sa race, sa résignation, et plus secrètement sa révolte, ses profondes douleurs et ses simples joies, son obsession de l. a. mort et son sens de Dieu."
Marguerite Yourcenar.
