"In his recent book, Cinepoetry: Imaginary cinemas in modern French poetry (2013), Christophe WallRomana singles out “New York in Flashlight” as the foundational statement of Cendrars’s futurist aesthetics. For a poet still struggling to fight free from his post-romantic subjectivity, the shock therapy of film would allow him to shed all metaphysics, all abstractions in order to emerge as an objective medium for the Orphic expression of the optical unconscious of the modern world – Rimbaud and Whitman updated for the century of cinema." Richard Sieburth • TLS
