About this product
- Description'sense too definite cancels your indistinct literature' Stephane Mallarme was the most radically invative of nineteenth-century poets. His writings, with their richly sensuous texture and air of slyly intangible mystery, perplexed or outraged many early readers; yet writer has more profoundly influenced the course of modern poetry - in English as well as in French. In both form and content, his poems created new ways of conveying existential doubt, fragmentation, and discontinuity. 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 kwn to have been approved by the author. Apart from verse, it includes all the prose poems and the unique, unclassifiable Un Coup de des...(A Dice Throw...). The lucid, wide-ranging introduction and invaluable tes help an understanding of this astonishing poet's work.
