Book Description
Stephane Mallarme was the most radically innovative of nineteenth-century poets, and a key figure in Modernism. His writings, with their richly sensuous texture and air of slyly intangible mystery, perplexed or outraged many early readers; yet no writer has more profoundly influenced the
course of modern poetry - in English as well as in French. This is the fullest collection of Mallarme's poetry ever published in English, and the only edition in any language that presents his Poesies in the last arrangement known to have been approved by the author. Prose poems, uncollected verse,
and the unique, unclassifiable Un Coup de des... (A Dice Throw...) are also present, including over 20 items that have never previously been translated. Original spelling, punctuation, and lineation have been preserved throughout.

Selected Letters of Stephane Mallarme
Rosemary Lloyd
0226488411
Aug 1988
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
If you suspect that Mallarme, the French Symbolist poet, wrote letters as aloof and impersonal as his chiseled verse, you are entirely wrong. His letters are playful, passionate, moody, generous, tender. They reveal both the mature poet and a sensitive, complex human being. Mallarme on childrearing: "I don't rejoice in all the charm that floats around a cradle." This selected correspondence records his months-long spiritual crisis, his languishing in the provinces where he endured a teaching job to support his family, the death of his son, his elation at securing a post in Paris, a love affair. The poet's preoccupation with music, art and literature comes across in letters to Zola, Manet, Swinburne, Claudel, Huysmans, Morisot, Whistler, Redon, Gide. Lloyd, who edited Baude laire's Selected Letters , has done an...

From Publishers Weekly
To be translated, the work of Mallarme must be transmuted, leading to a poetry just as weirdly and irreducibly English as his is in French. But alchemical operations are conducted according to rules, and poet Weinfield (Sonnets Elegiac and Satirical) has chosen as his focus Mallarme's elaboration of rhyme and meter. Since poetic forms are as indigenous to their languages as the senses and sounds of words themselves (and since English has many fewer rhyme-words than French), this is a brave undertaking. Mallarme's work subverts the standardized, highly rhetorical conventions of traditional French verse; he uses the confines of poetic form to set free and play with private images and syntactical or semantic ambiguities. English poetry is much less formal-many of the conventions it once observed have fallen into...

Book Description
The leading poet of French symbolism, Stéphane Mallarmé has exercised an enormous influence both on French and on English and American avant-garde writers. In this volume C. F. MacIntyre has translated forty-three of his poems, including the "Ouverture" and "Scène" from Hérodiade, which was to have been a drama in verse, and the well-known L'Après-midi d'un faune, for which Debussy composed his orchestral prelude. The French text faces the English translations, which are both true to the original and poetic.
Indeed, as MacIntyre suggests,...

Book Description
Nineteenth-century French poet St_phane Mallarm_, regarded as a major influence on modern literature and critical theory, has long mystified readers with notoriously obscure writings and philosophy. In this highly original book, Graham Robb reveals an important "key" to Mallarm`s poetry that redefines Mallarm studies and opens the way for new interpretations of some of the most complicated poems ever written.

From Publishers Weekly
While St‚phane Mallarm‚ wrote as much prose as poetry, little of that side of his writing has made its way into English. Caws (who also edited St‚phane Mallarm‚: Selected Poetry and Prose) and five other translators contribute letters, articles, vignettes, paeans to Poe and Tennyson, literary criticism, appreciations of ballet and miscellaneous, unclassifiable pieces to emphasize just how much more of Mallarm‚ there is to read. Of the writer's major works, Caws has chosen excerpts from Les Mots anglais, a work that reflects less Mallarm‚'s insights into English than his fascination with the mysteries of language itself. Although there is nothing to represent Mallarm‚'s study in mythology, Les Dieux antiques (1880), there are selections from one of his money-making ventures, his...


A Tomb for Anatole

Paperback
·
 
Book Description
An immensely moving poetic work addressing inconsolable sorrow: a father's pain over the death of his child. Bilingual. "One of the most moving accounts of a man trying to come to grips with modern death—that is to say, death without God, death without hope of salvation—and it reveals the secret meaning of Mallarmé's whole aesthetic: the elevation of art to the stature of religion."—Paul Auster, from the Introduction The great French Symbolist poet Stéphane Mallarmé (1842-1898), who changed the course of modern French literature (and influenced writers from James Joyce to T.S. Eliot to Wallace Stevens), suffered many tragedies. His mother died when he was just five years old, but in 1879 the cruelest blow of all struck when his beloved son Anatole died at the age of eight. A Tomb for...


Mallarme and Debussy: Unheard Music, Unseen Text
Elizabeth McCombie
0199266379
December 2003
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
This book examines afresh the web of similarities and differences between music and poetry using works by Mallarme and Debussy as case studies. It challenges the easy metaphorical impressionism that has characterized much of the scholarly literature to date. Analyzing Mallarme's vision of a
shared musico-poetic aesthetic, Elizabeth McCombie derives a set of performative structural motifs, analytical tools that express our experience of the two arts and their middle ground.

Book Description
Reflets r?ciproques: A Prismatic Reading of St?phane Mallarm? and H?l?ne Cixous evokes the refractory aspect of a prism that bends and deflects light in order to produce a spectrum of twentieth-century thought emanating from the late nineteenth-century French literary avant-garde. Because the works of Mallarm? and Cixous are often described as hermetic and illisible, Jacques Derrida intervenes to play the role of intermediary through his separate writings on these poets. Important questions arise: How does the elliptical writing of Mallarm? relate to the hyperbolic writing of Cixous? What common strategies emerge and how do these strategies address the critical areas of sexual difference and political testimony for each writer?

Poet in Society: Art, Consumerism, and Politics in Mallarme (Currents in Comparative Romance Languages and Literatures Series), Vol. 110
Damian Catani
0820457779
January 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
The Poet in Society dispels the traditional image of Mallarmé as an ivory-tower elitist poet by demonstrating his involvement in social and political issues. It argues for a re-evaluation of Mallarmé as a writer who is both socially aware and socially committed, and who responds to the prevailing consumerist and political discourses of his society by elaborating a social project designed to cater to the psychological needs of all community members. The Poet in Society is important not only in specifically Mallarméan terms, but also in terms of the increasingly intense debate on the crisis of values in the era of early modern capitalism.
