‘Naufrage’ reproduces Stéphane Mallarmé’s poem ‘Un Coup de Dé Jamais N’abolira le Hasard’ (A throw of the dice will never abolish chance, 1914). In this puzzle like grid of type, the verses are dissimulated, engulfed by the rows of characters, emerging only momentarily when the ‘text’ is scrutinised.
