Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The influential French poet, Symbolist leader, and Decadent Paul Verlaine (1844-1896) was recognized as a groundbreaking writer even in his own lifetime--his stylistic innovations brought a new musicality to French poetry and paved the way for free verse and other twentieth-century techniques and experiments. This selection of poems, with the French text en face, provides a comprehensive selection of Verlaine's verse together with a lucid introduction illuminating his life and works.

Synopsis:

'Translations of poetry are rarely altogether satisfactory. It is consequently very much to Mr. MacIntyre's credit that he has been able to capture in English much more of that particular quality which distinguishes Verlaine's art. . . The choice has been carefully made, there is a good introduction, and some excellent notes.' -Virginia Quarterly Review

About the Author

Paul Verlaine, author of works including Romance sans paroles and Sagesse, was elected France's "Prince of Poets" by his peers in 1894.
