Product Description

Six French Poets of the Nineteenth Century

Edited and translated by A. M. Blackmore and E. H. Blackmore

- A unique and eclectic collection of modern translations of selections from the works of the six most famous nineteenth-century French poets.

'Poetry will no longer keep in time with action; it will be ahead of it.' Arthur Rimbaud

The active and colourful lives of the poets of nineteenth-century France are reflected in the diversity and vibrancy of their works. At once sacred and profane, passionate and satirical, these remarkable and innovative poems explore the complexities of human emotion and ponder the great questions of religion and art. They form as rich a body of work as any one age and language has ever produced. This unique anthology includes generous selections from the six nineteenth-century French poets most often read in the English-speaking world today: Lamartine, Hugo, Baudelaire, Verlaine, Rimbaud, and Mallarmé. Modern translations are printed opposite the original French verse, and the edition contains over a thousand lines of poetry never previously translated into English.
