Abstract:

"Known primarily at one remove as an influence on later French poets and on such twentieth-century Americans as Hart Crane, Ezra Pound, and T.S. Eliot, Laforgue has not had the firsthand attention that he merits as the most revolutionary innovator of the Symbolist generation. The present bilingual edition, consisting of forty-one poems and the short verse-drama 'The Faerie Council', is intended to help remedy this situation. Poems have been selected from all of Laforgue's published volumes, and the majority of his important poetic works are represented. Patricia Terry's translations and notes should make Laforgue accessible to a far larger audience. Mrs. Terry's introduction combines biographical information with critical analysis and stresses Laforgue's rapidly evolving intentions and the corresponding changes in his style. The philosophical and emotional preoccupations with dominate the early poems gradually acquire the ironic façade which has come to be considered characteristically 'Laforguian', The latter free-verse poems are somewhat more personal in tone, and are best described in Laforgue's own phrase: psychology in dream form, inextricable symphonies with recurrent melodic phrases"--Publisher's description, p. [4] of cover.
