Description:

`Verlaine, possessed by the madnesses of love, brimming over with desires and prayers, the rebel railing against the complacent platitudes of society, of love, of language'. Jean Rousselot Verlaine ranks alongside Baudelaire, Mallarmé, and Rimbaud as one of the most outstanding poets of late nineteenth-century France whose work is associated with the early Symbolists, the Decadents, and the Parnassiens. Remarkable not only for his delicacy and exquisitely crafted verse, Verlaine is also the poet of strong emotions and appetites, with an unrivalled gift for the sheer music of poetry, and an inventive approach to its technique. This bilingual edition provides the mostcomprehensive selection of his poetry yet, offering some 170 poems in lively and fresh translations and providing a lucid introduction which illuminates Verlaine's poetic form within the context of French Impressionism and the poetry of sensation.

The dissolute, erratic leader of the decadents and one of the early symbolists, Verlaine wrote 18 volumes of verse in alternating moods of sensuality and mysticism. He and the Poet Rimbaud, 10 years younger, wandered throughout Europe together, until their relationship ended when Verlaine shot his companion in Brussels in 1873 and was imprisoned for two years. Sagesse (1881), his collection of religious poems of great melodic and emotional beauty, is generally considered his finest volume. In his famous poem Art Poetique, Verlaine stressed the primary importance of musicality in poetry over description. Mallarme called the collection in which it appears, Jadis et Naguere (1884), "almost continuously a masterpiece . . . disturbing as a demon's work," and described Verlaine's skill as that of a guitarist.
